@Max:  "You edited it out, you little scamp!!!"

"Scamp!"  There's a word you don't hear often!  I also like "rapscallion!"  My father used to use it.  It has a bit more dash than "rascal."

At least you didn't call me a scoundrel!

@Stargzr: Actually, your post also shows an itty-bitty X-Box on my browser...

You are right -- I'd forgotten that Flickr is blocked for some reason -- I'm too young for all of this excitement LOL

ARRGGGHHHH!  Well, at least I'm going in for an eye exam next week; guess it's time for new glasses -- using up what's left of last year's FSA.  I'll blame it on using my normal progressive lenses, not the "room distance" progressives I got for CRT use, whose frame came unsoldered.  At least the frames will be replace under warranty just in time for new lenses.

@Max: I think this is what you intended to do:

I'm lucky I can get to Flickr; they used to block it here.  It's weird what they block here -- they recently let me to a page on the Fighting 69th (Infantry), but blocked another page on the same web site.  Some innocuous web pages sound like double-entendres.

It's only recently that we've gotten access to YouTube.  Now I can listen to some old folk music (Tom Rush (Rockport Sunday; Tin Angel and Circle Game by Joni Mitchell); Phil Ochs (Draft Dodger Rag); Peter, Paul, and Mary ... ).  I'll have to look for some Stan Rogers while I'm at it; a great Canadian folk singer who was killed in a plane fire, probably caused by a cigarette smoker in the rest room.

@Stargzr: In the original photo I can't read the captions on the lower pencils, like the pencil for someone who does very little and the pencil for one who does nothing.  This photo is clearer.

Ah -- almost like the one I uploaded when I posted thsi blog -- the link under the smaller in-line image in th eblog that says "CLICK HERE to see a larger image"

Obviously I was being too subtle... LOL

@Max:  "... the link you provide had four w's (as in
"wwww")"

"Fourth 'w?'  What fourth 'w'?" he said as he dropped the picture of Big Brother with the fourth 'w' into the Vaporisor.

You really aren't having much luck -- the link you provide had four w's (as in
"wwww")

 

Ah -- I see you edited that out now...

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
