I love taking photos and videos. I keep a camera with me at all times taking photos or videos of family or anything that catches my attention. I have wanted a small camcorder that would be convenient to take with me and shoot quick videos. This SEREE video camcorder is perfect for my amateur videos and it even takes still photos as well.
I love how compact and lightweight this camcorder is. It comes with the video camcorder, battery, adapter, USB cable, AV cable, remote control, camera bag and user manual.
I’m really impressed with the features of this small camcorder. It has a 18X digital zoom, 24MP 1080p resolution and self timer. It also detects when you are smiling and captures the photo. How cool is that? You can use this camcorder as a web cam as well. The 2.7″ LCD screen can rotate 270 degrees (great if you take selfies!)
This camcorder works great on my basic tripod. It also has a convenient strap on the camcorder when I want to hold it my hands to shoot videos. My hand fits comfortably in the strap and the strap can even be adjusted. I feel secure knowing I have a good grip on my camera.
I am impressed with the quality of the videos and photos. I think this camcorder is great for anyone who is a beginner in videography/photography. It is also great for students who need a small camera for projects or anyone who just wants to have fun taking short videos and photos in everyday life.

This time of year in the Appalachian Mountains something quite special happens. Something that has been occurring for 72 years. From Kentucky, through Virginia into Tennessee (a 110 mile route) rolls a train carrying a man called Santa Clause. Sound familiar?
When the Santa Train comes through the Appalachian Mountains , you know it is officially the holiday season. I have watched clips on our local news and other programs since I was a little girl. I never got to see this special phenomenon until this past Saturday , November 19, 2016. I grabbed my camera bag and drove about thirty miles to the place where Santa would be arriving on a train instead of a sleigh. I arrived to a waiting crowd of several hundred people. The looks on the small children’s faces were ones that I will never forget. They just knew something wonderful was about to happen. Something more than wonderful happened and I was blessed to be part of it.
I stood with hundreds of mountain folk and all at once we heard a whistle and looked and saw the train coming. Cheers went up and you could hear the children yells above everyone. Parents started pressing forward into the crowd with their children to get close to the front to see Santa. Some Dad’s had their little ones perched on their shoulders.
Santa arrived and was waving and shouting to everyone “Merry Christmas!” Santa’s helpers, or Elves, started jumping off the train with bags full of treats, trinkets, and toys and started handing them out among the crowd. Santa was on the train tossing toys far out into the crowd so that those little ones in the back would not be left out. My eyes filled with tears as I snapped photos and tried to watch all this spirit of generosity going on all around me. I kept hearing children calling out, “Me Santa! “Me”. I saw Santa point to a child in the crowd and his Dad brought him up on his shoulders and I raised my camera and captured a moment I will forever remember. I saw a man, who to this child was Santa Clause, look into this child’s eyes and say “I came all this way to give this to you”. I saw anticipation in this child’s eyes and thankfulness in his Dad’s eyes.
Not only did children receive gifts but Santa was tossing out gifts to adults as well. Just as I put my camera down for a minute, I looked up and saw Santa pointing to me and motioning me to come forward. I shyly stepped forward and heard him say just as he was tossing me a package, “You need this young lady”. I wanted to say, “Oh, go on Santa”. I mean , who knew Santa was such a flatterer. I’m fifty years old! I opened my package and there was a lovely scarf! I felt very special to be singled out by Santa!
This was such a special day, Santa and his elves made sure that not one child or adult left without smiling and joy in their hearts. I know I wrapped my scarf around my neck and waved back at Santa as he left the depot and knew I would never forget the spirit of giving and holiday magic that moved in the mountains this past Saturday on a train that was called the Santa Train.
When I make dinner on Sunday’s, so many times my mind goes back to when I was growing up. I remember Sunday’s was “chicken day” at my house and the whole family looked forward to Sunday’s because my Mom would be in the kitchen and it seemed like in no time at all, I could start smelling the savory aroma of chicken baking. I never was exactly sure what she did to make the chicken so delicious but there were more than one of us kids that would stand and ask “is it done yet?”
I received a coupon from BzzAgent and Barber Foods to try Barber Foods stuffed chicken breast free. I chose the Broccoli and Cheese stuffed chicken breast. I made it for my husband and I a few nights ago and as the chicken was baking, I started smelling such a delicious aroma and it took me back to when I was a child when my Mom would bake chicken and I could smell those same scrumptous aromas and my belly would growl with anticipation.
I am always so pressed for time during the week to get dinner on the table and sometimes it can be such a hassle just trying to decide what I can make that doesn’t have a lot of prep or bake time. I was so pleased that there was not any prep time and it only took about thirty minutes for the Broccoli and Cheese chicken to bake. I actually had time to make a side dish of macaroni and cheese to go with the stuffed chicken breast while I waited.
My husband and I sat down to our dinner of Barber Foods Broccoli and Cheese stuffed chicken breast, macaroni and cheese and glasses of sweet iced tea. When I cut into my chicken breast and took my first bite of stuffed chicken breast with melted Swiss and American cheeses and tender broccoli, I knew this was the closest I would ever get to my Mom’s own baked chicken! So good!
