I've found YouTube!

I recently heard the term "Web 2.0" and wondering what it meant I did a search and found like so many things related to the internet there were many things it could mean.

The strongest definition seemed to say that Web 2.0 related to websites that were designed for interaction and community meeting and sharing like Facebook, Myspace and YouTube. I don't know or care if that's right or wrong, but it was during this process that I found and used YouTube for the first time. I don't claim to be a professional movie maker, like our whole web page, and my involvement with computers, it's just on of my hobbies.

Video One, Australian Submarine (RAN) on the surface

A Royal Australian Navy, Collins Class submarine on the surface in Sydney Harbor, March 2006.

Before Conda and I left Australia to migrate to Oregon in the U.S. we visited Sydney to see our relatives living there. While in Sydney, Ken and I took the opportunity to spend the day on Sydney Harbor. While traveling to Many by ferry we spotted this sub traveling on the surface in the channel, appearing to be heading to the heads to leave the harbor.

Video Five, Meadows & Lake Kathleen Railroad
Deadwood, Oregon..

Earlier this year I read an article in the "Statesman Journal" the daily paper here in Salem. It had a story about a Ray Robinson, a resident of Deadwood, Oregon who with the help of friends had built a model railway over a period of around ten years.

Sometime after the railway had been finished he began to have trouble with the local authorities over permits he should have obtained. I was fortunate to develop a friendship with Ray and have visited his railway a number of times.
