Day one of trying new blog through WordPress. Apparently going to have to migrate from .Mac, as Apple has informed me that they will be discontinuing the service, and I wasn’t to thrilled with what I saw via the new MobileMe. Wasn’t always too thrilled with .Mac and iWeb either, although the iWeb page templates were pretty. Oh well. Hoping that having ownership of domain name will be an improvement … now to just figure out what I’m doing with the WordPress dashboard. Be prepared for significant learning curve-age while I figure things out.
I have done a lot of bike hauling this week – bikes by bike, bike parts by bike, recycling by bike … The genius that is Xtracycle never ceases to amaze, and never disappoints. The picture above was from trip to bike shop — dropping off the Big Dummy (the green bike), and taking the Specialized (white/yellow bike) along so that I’d have a ride home. Schlepping of bike by bike made possible by the Xtracycle TrayBien. The Big Dummy has almost finished the final phase of customization, with only the glorious fenders and new deck by Woody’s Fenders to be added. That is the agenda for the weekend.
Need to figure out how to link to those websites (Xtracycle, Woody’s) … oh well. Need ‘WordPress for Dummies’, apparently.
It’s my cyber real-estate, so I can plug for whomever I choose … This is the video made by my amazing 16-year old son, Dillon, for an EPA short video contest on YouTube. The objective was to produce an original piece illustrating simple things people can do to protect our watersheds. I think he did an amazing job – from video to music to editing and all else. Simple, to-the-point. He’s my hero!
My initial venture into blogging – mostly for limited audience of family and a few kindly devoted friends – was via Apple’s .Mac web venue. There were a few interesting posts over the course of the year+ I was writing there, along with a decent collection of photos. I won’t be bringing that cyber luggage over here, and it will be shut down in the next few months (July ’09?) but if you should care to take a look at things past …
