Exercise: I rode the bike for 6 miles this morning.

Backup: I spent about 4 hours today organizing and backing up my photo. I always let myself get way behind and than have to do the hours to catch up! Anyways my photos are backed up to 3 drives now and the only bad thing is that I don’t have an off site backup.

“What is That?”

Pictures: This Canyon Towhee came by one day and was checking out the peanuts, it would pick one up and then drop it and it did this a few times. In between times it would eat seeds. I don’t think it ever did eat a peanut or carry one away.

Rant

Ad Blockers : Yesterday I had a problem with my browser not showing photos on my blog so the first thing I do when something like that happens is to start disabling my add-ons to see if one of them is causing the problems. Anyways, I did this yesterday and I was kind of surprised at how aggressive the ads where on my blog. The ads pretty much overshadowed my blog post. When looking at the upgrades for WordPress I see “Personal MX$45.00 per month, billed yearly” and about all this upgrade does that I would need is to stop ads. I simply can’t afford that much. I know that WordPress needs to make money to have this site available to us free users but do they all need a new yacht!?!? Really!

I would be happy to pay somewhere under a $100.00 a year to stop my readers from being bombarded with very aggressive ads but not over $500.00 a year. So, folks if the ads make you nuts add a AdBlocker to your Browser. I hate to feel that I need to recommend that when WordPress gives me a free site for my blog but when ads overshadow ones post …… If ads don’t bother you, by all means use the ads you see and support WordPress!

Okay, in summary and to be fair …… I do fully understand that when using a free product I am “their product” and I have the option of not being “their product”. Luckily, for now users have a way to control things if they feel they need to, so I guess we’ll call it a deal.

With the aggressiveness of web sites use of ads, I don’t see how anyone uses the internet without an Ad-blocker. If a Web site used 10% or less of their page for a couple of ads I would support ads but when a web site has 10- 30 ads or uses 50% or more of the page for ads than I support Ad-blockers far more. By the way I recommend AdBlocker Ultimate.

Okay, end of rant!!!

As it turned out I had to uninstall Firefox and reinstall it to fix my problem of my photos not showing.
