Data: Verizon will suck a extra $25 out of me this month😦 Everything seem to take more bandwidth to do now-a-days. I fear that it will soon become prohibitive for me if the rate keep going up. Today is my last day on this data cycle so I will be able to do more tomorrow🙂

Travel: I have moved but not very far. I am now about 40 miles west of Flagstaff.

Black-throated Gray Warbler

Pictures: Black-throated Gray Warble, and this is a lifer for me🙂 When I was shooting it I was thinking Black-throated Sparrow but once I open the photo in the computer I knew something was off and it was the little yellow spot! Of course after reconsidering there was few other thing different too.

Theme : Jmnowak report in the comments that when she clicks in the text area of a post it puts a line around it, as if it was a image.


“1) Whenever I hover the cursor over any part of text or images, I see a thin-lined box around it all, as if you had prepared this post as an image.
Sorry — I meant to say ‘click’ into the text area”

Is anyone else seeing this? I can’t see it from my computer or tablet. Your feed back would be greatly appreciated!

Exercise: I walked for two miles and rode the bike for a couple just goofing off.

Theme : Well okay I think that I am about to settle on this one, “Toujours”. As far I can tell the word is French but I can’t seems to get a solid definition for it. Anyone know this word? Maybe forever or always?

Weather: It has been really nice here temperature wise and will be good for a while yet. I think about moving sometimes but I am enjoying the weather so much. My next move will likely be to an area that is much warmer. The elevation here is almost 7000 feet and the area I am looking at next is only around 4000 feet which will mean a big change in temperature. Weather changes in short distance is a thing that I like about the southwest part of the US, one can drive for a hour and be in a totally different climate, however, temperatures are still hitting near a hundred in the area I’m consider, so I’ll wait a bit.

Data: Looks like I’ll be going over on my data limit😦 Man, I wish these wireless carries in the U.S. would lighting up on the cost of data. I think maybe there are some trends that feels like it is going to get a little better, I sure hope so.

Photoshop CS2 Free?: If you try the links I give you in a earlier post and didn’t get nowhere you might try this one This one to Adobe with download link and serial #.

Exercise: I rode the bike for 5 miles only.

Forgive Me: I am not getting around to other folks blog just now due to low-bandwidth but I will roll over data on the 25th so the 26th I’ll be able to see what you all have been up too🙂 I am feeling deprived😦

Theme: I am still playing with the setting a bit, I am looking for plain, simple and efficient. I am finding one thing that I can’t seem to work around and that is the default font in the theme (The body text font), I don’t like it. Is it silly looking or is it just me???? This is the Big Brother Theme.

Exercise: Only got in 5 miles on the bike.

New theme

Blog update: I am still playing with the themes and I like this one “Scratchpad” except the header is a bit larger than I like and each post don’t have the number of comments or a place to start one ( you have to click the post to leave one or read the others). However, I think I will let this one ride for a bit and see if it grows on me.

Update; back to “Hemingway Rewritten” theme. I like everything about this one except the header image size ….. again! Yes, I can crop the image but the space dedicated to the image remains😦 Well, when you do free you can’t fuss too much about it all😉

Update; Now to “Big Brother” theme. Much smaller header image🙂 and still very open.

Pictures: Today’s pictures are of a Female Black-headed Grosbeak.

Weather: We are getting a hard rain today. We get a little about every day but some days it really comes down and today is one of the “coming down days”.

Exercise: I have been a little lazy for the last two days but today I did get out for a 2 mile walk.
