Anticlimactic Answer is Anticlimactic

Tick Tock – Wait

I finally had to bite the bullet and get my foot looked at today. I’ve made a lot of progress since I took off the training wheels, but it’s been two and a half months since I broke it and although I’m hardly in … Read More

Recuperation Is Not Fast

A full day without the buddy tape around my big toe and it’s nearest neighbor. It’s been interesting. After six weeks of being taped and 99% of that time in a recovery shoe on top of it, the first sensation was that it felt … Read More

Time Flies With A Broken Toe

Wow, I can’t believe that tonight marks six weeks since I was sitting in the Emergency Room waiting to find out the status of my poor toe. In some ways, I feel every minute of those six weeks. I watched the leaves change through … Read More

My Toe Shouldn’t Point That Way

In the grand scheme of things it could have been far worse, but it’s still not a banner day. I’ve been working on prepping and painting my room. It is well due, but I guess now it will be a December task. I was … Read More

Beyonce vs Mercury Meme Misses The Point

Ah, don’t you love inter-generational rivalry? My music/clothes/cars/whatever-else-you-have trumps yours! If there’s anything that’s fair game it’s that whatever is new is always crap compared to my generation! And as sure as you roll your eyes when someone says it about the things you … Read More

Farewell Ponds – You’ll be Missed

I can’t believe how fast these half series of Doctor Who are over. I’d truly rather get it all in one dose, but no one at the BBC asked me. And I’ve been too wrapped up getting my Ireland art uploaded on my account … Read More

Search Engines Should Reward Original Works

That search engines such as Google should reward original work is a thought that I’ve had in mind for awhile now. I’ve even brought it up to friends and on various discussion boards several times. But I never quite got around to blogging about … Read More

Borja, Spain – Damaged Fresco Meme

It’s unusual for me to find myself on the outside looking in when there’s a good joke afoot. I don’t think many people who know me well would suggest I had lost my funny bone. Yet there’s one meme that went viral this week … Read More

Goodbye Aunt Lois

We found out Sunday that the last of my Grandmother’s siblings had passed away. My grandmother, the oldest of ten children, was 25 years older than her baby sister Lois. In fact, Granny got married later the same year Aunt Lois was born. They … Read More

Web of Lies

There’s an element of our society that I’ll never understand. Well, there are probably many, but specifically, it’s the people who cook up stories and post them online and wait for their falsehoods to spread. I’m not talking politics or scandals here, but just … Read More

Houses of Cards

Time to Try something new! I test drove Facebook’s new Wordpress plugin and in the process learned how to set up a child theme, but there’s always more to learn isn’t here?… Read More

Formulas for Relevance

With great irony only a couple of days after my last post on Facebook’s new promote feature, I posted a new photo to my Facebook page and it wasn’t even relevant to me! Seriously, the only place my own post on my page appeared … Read More

Getting The Red Out

It’s fun when something amusing happens in the mist of misery! Okay, I exagerrate, but it’s allergy season and medicine puts a dent in it but at the peak of whatever pollens are hitting me, it’s never a complete reversal of the symptoms. This … Read More

Pinterest – More of the Same

Well, today Pinterest released their revised terms of service and while I’m glad to see they’ve removed the language about “selling” things that are pinned, but I never thought that was a real thing to begin with. How were they to know whether material … Read More

Facebook Interest Lists

Ah, it’s been entirely too long since I posted on my personal blog. Other things I could have posted about like the day spent un-hacking my photography site – so not cool. And I’m sure there are some other odds and ends, however, mostly … Read More

Pinterest on Pause

My last three posts are something of a roller coaster, but this will probably be my last on the subject of Pinterest for awhile. As I explained previously, I’m good with people sharing my work so long as it links back to me. After … Read More

Pinterest – Making Lemonade

Sometime around the fall last year, I started hearing waves about Pinterest. I had friends encouraging me to join and share some of my photography and just in general telling me how much they personally enjoyed the site. As someone active on social media, … Read More

Goodbye Mrs. Linda Beckum

I was shell-shocked today to discover that one of my favorite teachers from High School, Mrs. Linda Beckum, passed away from cancer. Speechless because I had no idea, and because I suddenly realized that I had let more than a decade pass since I … Read More

The Facebook Fan Page Game

Ah, I should so be working on my gallery revamp. It’s scary how much time I’ve devoted to it, but here’s hoping eventually it’s a more of  a peek into my mind when people visit my online print gallery. The aim, after all, was … Read More

Mark Tisdale Has Arrived

It may sound vain, but when you’re trying to get the word out about your work online, every so often, you have to search for yourself just to see what’s appearing amongst the results. The other day sitting in the airport in Philly, I … Read More
