I love comments. In addition to stroking my ego and encouraging me to keep posting, they help give me an idea of what you want to read about. You can comment using the form at the bottom of each page, or you can send me email directly. Comments sent to Lia will also get to me eventually, but I’d prefer direct feedback. If you use the form, you can just give your name. You don’t need to give an email address or URL. Though that may change if/when I upgrade my weblog software. Send me feedback. Thanks!

Photo strategy

Today I was planning to upload a bunch more photos with strange English but the day caught up with me. So instead of posting an omnibus edition of pictures, I’m going to do them a few at a time. Stay tuned for Arty Farty, Colon Booth, Beauty and Pain Clinic, and countless others.

I’m back

It’s hard to believe that my last entry was in May. Suffice to say that I got really busy. I’m not sure I’ll be updating regularly, but that’s what the announcement list is for. If you haven’t already signed up, please do so at this link. You’ll be sent a notification email whenever I add a new entry.

I’m planning to migrate this weblog to new software as soon as my web host gets its act together and finishes a few upgrades. Or else I’ll be migrating to new software at a different hosting provider. In any case, the combination of motivation and time means that I’ll be posting stuff despite the changes in the works.
