Glad to see your

Keep an eye on PixelFed as a replacement for Google Photo. It's a federated photo sharing tool which is in early stages, though functional.


Hope to stay in touch.


Thanks for connecting.

I am enjoying all the conversations these links are creating.

Do your "oldbytes" suffer from bit rot?

All my bytes are still holding together...barely.

Have fun.
Be safe.

Aloysius is attempting to channel Sam Spade, the fictional famous shamus. He's pretty good when the clues are clearly labeled.

The future happens *because* of what we do today...

Do something today.

It will probably be best if both of these BOTTLES are kept closed.

I hope you will keep posting photos here in the Mastodon space, at least until this federation thing makes it more effective to share across tools.

Have fun.
Be safe.

Hey, Siri, would you ask Alexa what Google thinks about artificial intelligence?

Aloysius has been working hard at Tin Gym for two days. He was WEAK on the 15th.

He actually isn't strong after two days, but some of his muscles have become SWOLLEN and he is very proud.


mass noun
The practice of claiming to have higher standards or more noble beliefs than is the case.

Middle English: from Old French ypocrisie, via ecclesiastical Latin, from Greek hupokrisis ‘acting of a theatrical part’, from hupokrinesthai ‘play a part, pretend’, from hupo ‘under’ + krinein ‘decide, judge’.


I generally avoid hypocrisy by lowering my standards every day.

Sears near me is closing.

I suspect they only had sales while all those other stores were having "events" instead.

I have a code of conduct.
It is like other similar codes.
Some parts have been borrowed.
Some learned by observing others.
Some bits may only work only for me.

I am an individual, not an organization
Or a committee needing shared rules.

No, it is not written down.
I live it.
Watch me long enough and you will see it in action.
That will have to be enough.

Hey, cool.

I am always looking for new-to-me authors and the ebook delivery system works great. I have no Kindle, but read many books on my Nook. It needs EPUB format instead of Mobi, of course.

I understand Amazon's effort to get us all to follow their lead, but I just don''t want to deal with two ebook formats.

Thank you for following, too.
As you will note, my "authorship" is less prose than rhyme. Still I love words in all forms.

Sunny and fifty-two
Now, I don't know about you
But what was warm in the spring
For fall, seems a completely different thing.
