Chirpy "Lisa Kent": Yes!
Me: laughter! [hang up]

Google.  You have messed with Calendar.  I do NOT want you to automatically add a calendar which I can NOT remove.  Sure I can keep the entries from showing, but it is still sitting there, cluttering up the page.  I ALREADY HAVE ALL THE BIRTHDAYS I WANT TO REMEMBER LONG SINCE NOTED ON MY MAIN CALENDAR.
It has been a long, long time since any Google change has actually pleased me.  Most lately have gone the opposite way.

Dear Google.  If I WANTED my photos turned into "Stories" I would have initiated that myself.  Please leave choices like that to the individual with the account.  STOP MESSIN' WITH MY STUFF.  (It IS still MY stuff isn't it?)

Again, it appears we are being marched into war - and being ignored.

A nice reminder of how this stuff works for us non-scientist types.
The solstice isn't for more than a week, but the earliest sunset of the year is already upon us. How's that possible?

Add in the creepy factor of many of the eReaders feeding detailed information about your reading habits back to their Creators, and the points made in this article delineate pretty thoroughly why I will not purchase an eReader until things change.

Bragging rights
I found the Love of My Life a bit late in life - but it is all the sweeter for that. We live quietly about 10 miles outside a medium sized southern city - close enough to the mountains for regular enjoyment, but still close enough to reach the beach in a day's drive. We are owned by a cat with a very serious expression, but playful attitude. I knit & crochet, garden, get creative in various ways (including the computer), read, take walks and generally enjoy life. Oh, and lately we have gotten into Steampunk.
