Combining the Front and Back of a Photo when Digitizing (an Off-Topic, Superimposing Post)
Did you get my feeble attempt at a double entendre? (Heh, Heh.) Since a lot of genealogists and family archivists read this blog ( big thanks! ), I thought it might be worth passing along this little tip I stumbled upon this morning. While I have no doubt ...

Good structures
 Editors can do effective SEO (results on search engines) by including important keywords in the headline, deck and lead graf and by using in-line links to send readers to related content (internal or external). Google Trends is a useful tool to compare keywords’ effectiveness. Editors can also peruse Google News to see what keywords are working for competitors. –Natalie Osterling'

"He never showed the slightest resentment when I published some of his ideas before he did. He told me that he avoided disputes about priority in science by following a simple rule: “Always give the bastards more credit than they deserve.” I have followed this rule myself.

'The going rate for a kilogram of iron or steel at the local scrap metal merchants is about ten pence. You can get 50 pence for aluminium, and nearly £3 for copper.
At that rate, the hulking remnants of a 13 tonne armoured personnel carrier represents a healthy fortune.
"Give it a week, there will be nothing left," said a local police officer, surveying the scene with a certain distaste.'

“The Army paid — per night — 1 franc for an Officer — 1/2 franc for other ranks and horses. A franc was thus worth 20 cts and billeting returns which I sent at intervals to 2nd Army ran into very big money,” he wrote.
