TSC to Peavy Mart. With that thought on my mind, Pheebs and I headed back to Goderich to get the birdseed at TSC I forgot Monday. Having only a few handfuls of seed left it was important to get our bird station re-stocked. Hungry birds can soon become angry birds and I didn't want them lining up on our sunroom's window sill making mad faces at me and chirping feathered obscenities through the glass.

Marlene and Benno's Odysseys on Land and Water. Marlene wondered how do I get the black backgrounds for many of my flower photos. Well, there's an involved technical answer and there is my simpler answer. Look for dark backgrounds behind your subject, meter your subject only, and experiment with purposely underexposing your shot. I prefer deep rich slightly underexposed colors so those are some of the things I do. There's more to it of course, but that's a start.

A window was a pane of glass you always had to clean. And a hacker had a lousy swing and could never hit the green.Meg was the name of a girlfriend and a Gig was played on stage.
Memory was what our elders lost in their golden age.
An application was for employment and a program was a show.
A cursor used to cuss a lot and mail didn't seem that slow.
A CD was for money in a long term bank account. And if you had a floppy you hoped that nobody ever found out.
Compress was something you did to garbage not something you did to a file. And if you unzipped in public you'd be in jail a while.
A keyboard was on a piano, a hard drive was down a long road.
A mouse pad was where Mighty Mouse lived and a backup involved a commode.
Cut you did with a pocket knife, paste you did with glue.
A web was what a spider wove and a virus meant the flu.
Nobody gets killed in a computer crash but some would've rather been dead, I guess I'll stick to pen and paper and the memory still in my head.
If I could ever go back in time and start all over again, I'd make sure that I grew up as Bill Gate's closest friend.
