I NEED YOUR HELP
29 August 2012
Anybody who has left a comment on one of these entries lately will have been notified that the comment widget is going to go away on October 1.
I've been trying to find a replacement. I don't get a LOT of comments, but it would be nice to have a place for anybody who feels moved to comment. I figured that in a pinch, I would just put a link to the same entry over on Blogger and people could comment there, but I knew there had to be a way.
So today I'm experimenting with a new widget, which you can find below the "Echo" comment box. Would some of you please leave a comment, maybe in both places, so I can see how this works? If it works OK, maybe Jim and others who have also been using Echo and are searching about for an alternative would like to try it too. I just did a Google search on "Comment Widget." The first one I tried didn't work, so this is the second one. Let's see how successful this one is.
I'm going to be sad to lose the 12 years of comments that have been attached to these entries, but, as I said, I don't get all that many comments anyway, so it's not really a great loss.
I felt like I had kids back in school again, briefly, this morning. Jeri spent the night here last night so Walt could take her to the train station at 6 a.m. She's going to Santa Barbara to spend a few days there and then drive up to San Rafael with Tom et al. so we can all be here for my mother's 93rd birthday party later this week. (My mother can finally meet Lacie, who will be a year old next month!)
She was getting up at 5, so I made sure I was up then to fix coffee (turns out she didn't have any...but she could have!). But then I packed a lunch for her--sandwich, banana, carrots, and yogurt with a spoon. Put it in a nice little sandwich bag and packed it with some flax seed vegetable chips that Walt had. I haven't packed her lunch in about 20 years or more! I thought I should have taken a picture of her with her bags in hand when she left for the train, just as I usually did on "first day of school"s.
When I looked at the Photo of the Day, I knew I had to play around with it for a bit. I do love Photoshop!
Tonight was the final producction of the 2012 Music Circus season, Crazy for
You, an extensive rewrite of the 1930 classic, Girl Crazy (a stage vehicle
for Ethel Merman, movie version for Judy Garland). What a fun production. Noah Racey, the
guy playing the Mickey Rooney part, was amazing. I love stuff like that!
THIS IS AN EXPERIMENT
