On Lakes and using Deeper Sonar

A couple of things for me, I will put them in the poll questions!

I realized the other day that I haven’t spent a lot of time on communication patterns. The reason that came up is a long time reader of mine, mentioned to me that I hadn’t done those in a while. No intent with that, really don’t spend as much time on that as I used to. I’ve been focused on work and getting my technology presentation ready. The image sharing for today’s blog is of Lake Lemon, a reservoir in Southern Indiana. It was built in the 1950s as the primary water supply for the city of Bloomington. It isn’t the primary water supply any longer. It, lake Lemon, replaced the WPA built resource, Lake Griffey. From roughly 1935 to 1955 Lake Griffy was the primary water supply for Bloomington, replaced by lake Lemon. Lake Monore replaced lake Lemon by the end of the 1960.s.

I’ve boated on all three, although Lake Griffey has a no motorboat rule. They have a small launch area for Canoes, and you can also rent a paddle or human powered paddle boats in the summertime. We, as a family hiked around Lake Griffey many times. Our Newfoundland, Phoebe Kuma used to love going to lakes, streams, and ponds in the summer when it was hot, so she could jump in and swim. Later when I was running, I used to run the trails by Lake Griffey. Of the three lakes, Griffy is the only one I have never swum in. I don’t think it would be a good idea to swim in Lake Griffey, but I know a lot of people that did swim in the lake. I much preferred swimming in Lake Monore, or Lake Lemon.

I should check the Deeper web site and see if someone as mapped any of those three Lakes. Deeper is a handheld or fishing pole held a personal sonar device. They have software (phone or tablet) that lets you quickly see what is beneath the surface of the water. They also allow you to upload the sonar map you created with a GPS tag so that others can see what is beneath the water.  Between the Trident ROV and the Deeper Sonar system, we can see what is under the water. Not that everyone care, but for me it is fun.  I have a dedicated fishing pole to use with the Deeper Sonar ball. You can even cast it away from you, to see what the water is 10-29 or feet away from you.

I am a long time blogger and technology poster.I focus on what is possible, but I also try to see what is coming. In recent years I have been focused on sharing the memories of my family, as part of my Family History Project.

  1. You do not need to read or share my stuff if I read or share yours, true. But I appreciate seeing your DP and reading your comments nonetheless. Whenever I see you or Carol or Albert in my page, it sure gives a smile on my face. Why not? You, guys, write in Virily. To make an effort to go to FB just to read is surely something. And yeah, I kinda get guilty if I remember I did not check yours ? a Leo trait, nothing to do with you.

    On that sonar thing, I will be interested if it will give me a higher chance to bait a fish. I am never good at fishing. Or maybe I do not have the patience of a fisherman ?

    • The same of course, is true oh Pixie. You don’t have to read or share my stuff. I love your poetry and the poems you share and happy to share both with the universe!

      I feel the same way, there are authors who appear in my timeline, and I go right to their post. You, Carol, Paul White, Albert, CarolDM, Ladio, Vidocka, Alex and others here on Virily, Andria

      • You and Carol T (whom, like you, I constantly have a short chitchat) appear in my notif because of BIB. CarolDM (is the Carol I mentioned in my first comment up there) and Albert do not. But yeah, seeing old faces like you guys is a delight. I do read posts here whenever I have plenty of time. Otherwise, I only read yours. Carol T is in my gmail so I read most of hers via mail.

  2. Your fishing and boating articles always remind me of Dustin. He loved fishing. We went deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico once and he loved it. Have a great weekend. Is this the twins birthday weekend?

  3. I smiled broadly when I read your article, Doc. First, I strongly agree with you that we do not have (always) to be transactional people in the world with this transactional paradigm.
    Second, is the fact that we continue to communicate without demanding each other, because this is about chemistry and respect, not trade.

    What did you do with your Friday?

  4. I’m retired so that all the days are the same … when I was still active I was very happy Friday and weekend even though I worked many weekends … this is an interesting spot … I always learn something new

  5. Although I’m not very clear with technology, I read your publications. I always learn something interesting. I’m already tired on Friday, but I’m waiting for my weekend with an impatience.
