Good Day for Shorts!

Not pants!–though  our UPS driver wears them year round. Just the blogging “shorts” below. ☀ Finally (thanks Rob! and Epson for finally supporting your 2880 with color management details) I can print people pictures and they are not green, gray…

So Where Are the Pots and Spices

It’s the same. And different. WordPress new version 2.7 is now installed and seems to be working just fine, thanks to some good-hearted elves who were busy overnight spinning their magic. Still, the interface is enough different it will take…

Water, Blogging and Bugs

  Waterblogger Jared Simpson posts a lovely artist rendition of a water penny, the aquatic beetle larva that some of you will remember from my post from the recent “rock flipping day” event. In this accurate rendering, how very like…

On Best Laid Plans

I had a plan to cover my tracks but have been caught with my pants down and my cliches out there in front of God and everybody. Here’s the deal. I left the house for work yesterday without the AC…

What’s Blogging Worth?

Mac, I Want My Mojo Back

I will have to confess, as I head toward the end of my 90 days of Apple free tech support, I still have problems. Unfortunately, they’re not the mechanical kind that Macintosh can help me with. It’s sort of like…

Tuesday Tidbits

Just a couple of pointers and housekeeping updates on this (thankfully!) rainy day in near-spring on Goose Creek. DO make note of the sidebar image for Floyd Earth Day (April 19) and the web page it points to (thanks, blogger…

On The Cover of the Rolling Stone
