concise versions of children's favorites: The Cat in the Hat

The kid was a lot more game for the rank amateur haircut than we had any right to expect. Come to think of it, this is how pretty much every haircut I've ever given with these clippers has eventually turned out.

Hey, everybody in the world looking to buy the elusive cycletote bicycle trailer, I'm selling mine. Pull cargo, children, or dogs, and do it well. Comment or email me with any questions. I prefer Chicago-area buyers but would consider shipping at buyer's expense.

I'm loving the Instant Upload part of Google+, but I use a couple of different camera apps on my Android phone besides the built-in one. G+ was only insta-uploading the (mostly pretty dull) ones that I took with the basic camera. To get the artier Vignette photos to start showing up, all it took was changing the default save directory for the photos, and then G+ started picking them up.

In Vignette, go to Options > JPEG settings (the button where it says the number of megapixels) > Save folder > Default camera folder. There was some initial weirdness with conflicting filenames but it all ended up fine after a few shots.

I would assume most camera apps have a way to change that folder, so the procedure would be similar for any of them.

(Thanks to this google groups thread for the idea: https://groups.google.com/a/googleproductforums.com/forum/#!topic/google-plus-discuss/WbuPcj_1MrU)

Have any of you photography types used an online printing service that can deal with square-crop prints? (Other than through Hipstamatic.)
