    I have a link to a security cam scanning the entrance to a cond complex where a far away friend lives. She goes out once a week at an assigned time and waves at the camera. We then send e-mails.

    Not a riveting site. Sometimes a bird flies by or a bicycler passes. Any movement is unusual.

    kath,

    i don't understand what you mean about your friend waving at the camera; or that sometimes a bird flies by/bicycler passes.....does she live in the north pole?

    also this picture reminded me (cannot remember the title) of this documentary where there was an expedition of a small group of people, determined to live in the north pole for i believe 2-3 months. one of the members was a doctor who found a lump in her breast while in the north pole; and she had one of the members (non-medical but whose job required precise incision) remove the lump. the documentary was absolutely incredible.
    i do think their journey ended early so the doctor could get the help she needed. but can you imagine a carpenter or glass cutter removing a lump from your breast??? i forgot what they gave her for an anesthetic but she remained awake so she could instruct him throughout the procedure.

    and i can never find santa's little helpers. :Santa1:

    The doctor was as Mc Murdo Station, Antarctica at the South Pole.

    My friend is in Florida. Their condominium security cameras can be accessed on a web site. She goes to a driveway area and waves so her out of state friends can see.

    Here is an apartment complex with the same set up. You could go wave at the web cam there too.

    oooooooooooooh-thank you for that info re: South Pole-little confused here. did you watch that documentary? absolutely fascinating.

    and no wonder i never saw santa or his elves. :chuckle

    as for the apt complex and its' web cam, who gives the picture of the subject in front of the web cam? (probably another stupid question)

    z's playa:

    I see the apartments hace more cams than when she lived there. I can't get the pictures on my computer. There used to be a cam scanning an area near a mailbox.
    She sometimes care for a neighbor when the private nurse had a day off. She would e-mail firat and push her patients wheelchair to the mailbox. Then she and the patient would wave and make faces at the camera.
    Whoever got the e-mail got a link to the cam.

    Pretty sad to be watching a bird on the other coast while waiting to see someone I used to work with wave from a driveway. That bird surprised me after so much nothing. Imagine watching at night!
