I got a real kick out of these, they “really” brought back some memories. I’m no Chikezie or anything, but we sure had fun! And for all you youngsters out there, no grief about the quality. This was 3 years before the Commodore C-64, and ages before Desktop Publishing....

I Started A Joke - Bee Gees. But most of their early stuff probably qualifies.
At Seventeen - Janis Ian What more can I say...
Alone Again, Naturally - Gilbert O'Sullivan The sad thing is that I used to have this on 45.....
All By Myself - Eric Carmen Saved a bit, or perhaps condemed by the Rachmaninoff melody. But a real drop off from the Raspberries...

Regular (or even occasional) readers my know that I sell some of my images at various microstock sites. The plus side is a little bit of extra cash, and the kick of knowing people are actually willing to pay for my images. The down side is that we usually have no idea how our images are used (and we have no control over how they’re used). Yesterday, for the first time, I found a couple of my images in use, which is a very cool feeling!! I did a simple google of my name, looking for images, and found these two articles at Science Daily:
Diesel Exhaust Associated With Higher Heart Attack, Stroke Risk In Men
Pretty cool, huh??
Of course, what's kinda funny, in an "accuracy in media" kind of way: The first article talks about water pollution from power plants, IN THE PITTSBURGH AREA. The photo they used was taken in Springfield, IL. The second article discusses a study in the United Kingdom on effects of Diesel exhaust. The photo is from just outside Chicago.... Oh well, doesn't bother me one bit!

For some reason, I’ve long been drawn to photos such as this. And they never look like what I envisioned when I snapped the shutter. But I like to think that I’m getting closer to capturing what my mind sees… I suspect I’m just fooling myself. Regardless, I'll never stop trying.

Here's the rules: Take the nearest book, turn to page 123.Look for the fifth sentence, then post the three sentences following the fifth sentence.
Well, this is random, but I'm game... Nearest book: "The Book of General Ignorance", which was a gift from one of my daughters.Page 123, sentences 6-8:
He sold more than a million books in his lifetime and was the first to apply evolutionary theory to psychology, philosophy, aand the study of society.He also invented the paper clip. The device was called Spencer's Binding Pin and was produced on a modified hook-and-eye machine by a manufacturer called Ackermann whose offices were on the Strand in London."
Who should I tag?? How about My Viewfinder, Photowannabe and After the Bridge...
