Day 17: Hold (courtesy of Master and Commander - what a fantasic movie)

Does anyone have any significant experience with Tiddlywiki?

I am considering giving it a serious trial run for personal knowledge management.

Spring Flowers . . .

My has been screwed up for some time. Not sure what is going on, but I did change themes. I am prett sure that is it. Unisiatleed and reinstlled a new one. Hopefully it will fix.

Dogwood at the Front Gate

Denied Access

“The way to get your account unfrozen is to stop being part of the blockade and occupation,” she added.

Lesson: Stay away from banks in general and Canadian banks in particluar.

Very scary stuff.

Queen fox

Foxlore by Rebecca Green. She’s wearing a crown…like the queen she is.

Hamilton on Disney +

Watching the Disney + Hamilton. What a great show! I forgot how good the music is.

An enjoyable way to spend an evening.

Marian Anderson by Laura Wheeler Waring

From the Harlem Renaissance. Amazing painting. Jumps out at you. And timely, both this month and at the time it was painted. Its a painting of an incredibly talented African American singer, depicted by an incredibly talented African American woman artist at the height of her creative power.

From Daily Art. I continue to love that app….

Reacher Said Nothing...

Reacher on Amazon Prime is excellent. Havent finshed season one yet, but it keeps you guessing. Will write a full review after I finish the season. Season One is based on Lee Child’s first Reacher book ( i think there are 20 or so). I read it a long time ago, and I think they chnaged the story a litte. My memory fails me though. Getting old is no fun.


Typora - Markdown Done Right

I think I FINALLY found a solid, supported, cross-platform markdown editor:


It was surprising how long it too to find one. But looks like it was worth it. Handles my files fine, renders nicely. No complaints so far

Perfect Day!

Spent a wonderful day with my wife after speaking at a professional conference in a town about an hour from here. We got lunch at an Italian cafe, spent a few hours in a book store, and had milkshakes.

Not good for the diet, but an otherwise Perfect Day!

Destin Harbor

Sunrise over Destin Harbor . . .good morning!


Just got a Starlink yesterday. Have not taken it out if the box yet, but will do so this weekend.

Does anyone have any experience with Starlink?

I am somewhat skeptical. Not a huge Musk fan, but I need this for coverage ina rural area - only viable option.

Hello, Goodbye

Goodbye Twitter. Hello Micro.Blog…

Four Eyes?

Got my first set of glasses today. Kind of wierd. Bifocals. A little hard o get used to. May have been better to get a single lens. So it goes

What’s best thought is that I can see again. Not that my vision was too bad. But it’s much better with glasses.

Twitter Fail

I have had it with Twitter. Renewing my subscription and will hang out here more.

There are some things that I will miss, but I believe the pluses will outnumber the minuses.


Reading Dune (Folio Society edition). Somehow, I have never read this classic of science fiction.

I must do so before watching the movie, and I want to watch the movie soon.

H.P. Lovecraft

I have been wanting to read some H.P. Lovecraft for some time. Figured Halloween was the perfect time to finally do it.

Choose “The Rats in the Walls”.


I gave up n the photo challenge a few days ago.

Found myself forcing posts and being anxious and mad when I would forget.

Not worth it. This is the low stress platform. I want to keep it that way

Day Fourteen: Wheels

A day of fun

October Photo Challnge: animals

This picture has nothing to do with animals though. It is a painting by Dariusz Grabuś - a Polish Contemporary painter who was born in 1973. I just like it.

I am coloring outside the lines. So it goes.

Who is this man? Legend
