I read this article on another site and thought it would be worth sharing. #extinction #extinct #nature #animals #bells #foundry #craftsmen

One of my goals for the year is to write a page a day. I am 5 for 5, and hope to turn the ramblings into a cohesive product by day 365. We'll see what happens.

+Jefferson Smith Thanks for the comments. I hope to average a page a day since it's not possible to spend time writing each day according to the plan. If I only get a paragraph done one day but complete a page and a half the next it is still within my goal.

I've been using the app on my Galaxy Note II and am pleased with the interface.   The EyeEm team has done great work, considering how the app started out and where it is now :-)

Also, the stylus input works well as far as writing titles and album names. Are there any thoughts about allowing a stylus to write or draw on a photo before uploading it?

The start of a new year means it's time for me to get a new smartphone. Any recommendations or any to avoid?  Preferred OS is Android 4.x, with the ability to upgrade it. I'm also looking for a phone with fewer pre-installed apps or the ability to uninstall or disable the apps I don't want.  Long battery life would be nice, too, but that is wishful thinking...

We have a gibbous moon today.  What does that mean?

I just tried to crop a photo and when I clicked the check mark it cropped the photo and also rotated it 180 degrees to the right. I could not see any way to undo or adjust the rotation so I cancelled the upload.

Political meanderings:

The self-esteem time lists starboard
Recalling days before the wall came down
Never the dream time had we imagined
We Will Bury You!
Shouted the Cold War posters
In the New York City subway
Prominently displayed
With the smiling, bloated face
Of a now long deceased
Russian iron fist

The self-esteem time lists further
It cannot raise its cracked and bleeding hull
Laying there, incapable of dream time
All is lost, never to be recovered
The wall never really went away
Now invisible it hovers over all
Controlled by a growing blood lust state
Glowing coals raked continuously
Over our dead souls’ undulating grate

You know you're old when you have to buy a cane to help you walk because your sciatica is bothering you.  I turn 60 two weeks from today, and am really feeling like an old fart now.  At least my cane has pretty blue flowers on it...

I woke up with these famous lines in my head:

"`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves. Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe."  [Lewis Carroll]

I'm thinking this would be a good day to beware the Jabberwock....
