Oh what a difference a day makes. The image above was made Friday morning before the big snow fall and the image directly below was made a little later in the day on Saturday. 😦
I have a couple of rants this morning so if you’re not interested in listening to me rant then I’ll say thanks for stopping by the blog and hope to see you next time.
Over the years I have spent thousands of dollars with Adobe™ in software purchases, upgrades, and add ons. My personal information was hacked on their system two years ago and I took no action against them. In short I’ve been a loyal customer of theirs since way back to Photoshop V7.
So yesterday morning I get an email from Adobe™ asking me if I would participate in a survey to determine what future enhancements and product offerings I would be interested in. They cautioned that the survey would take 12 minutes but they would enter my name in a drawing for some prize. I spent a few minutes making sure this was a legitimate survey by going to their website and doing some research. Satisfied that everything was okay I agreed to take the survey. They asked for my name, my email address, and my date of birth. Then I was taken to a screen that said, “Thank you for taking the survey.”
In other words you’re too damn old for us to care what you think! 🙂
Rant # 2: I spoke briefly yesterday about how WordPress™ forced the new editor on us bloggers without so much as a notification. They took away many features that are very helpful and made it more difficult to post a nice blog. The more I thought about it the more frustrated I became by their arrogance and lack of concern for their customers. So I went to the WordPress™ Forums. It didn’t take long to find the subject string about frustration with the new editor. I posted my “give us a choice” statement and then checked the box that said send me any responses to my post. My email box was overwhelmed.
WordPress™ has really irritated their customer base and the maddening thing is they don’t give a “rat’s ass!” Not my words but that quote was posted many times on the forum by different bloggers. 🙂
Okay, if you stayed with me through all this, I’m done. Thanks again for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
Nice pics 🙂
Thank you very much Paula. I was just admiring some of your work. Beautiful!

You nailed the drastic change of weather and “season mood” we had yesterday here in Iowa very well with these two images. I also thought it was interesting how the different angles of the sun, and as a result how the shadows and sun spots are laid out, lead the eye through the pictures in a totally different way. Well done!
I’m sorry to hear about your software frustrations. I have been at this point with WP about a year ago, finally made a change, and never looked back.
Thank you my Friend. Yes I remember you had similar issues. I love the looks of your new blog and have been enjoying your vacation. Give my best to your lovely bride.
