- The fact that Acer, big in the Chromebook market, would even think of designing something like this should be a reminder that Chromebooks have made it
- With Google taking images of things around the world, it should come as no secret that you can’t hide these things. In fact, why not create one to advertise?
- The Dionne Quintuplets are 87 and there are two of them still living

It almost happened this week with this post. I live in fear of it.
As you probably know, all the blog posts here are scheduled. This post, in particular, is so long that I start writing it in the morning and plug away at it throughout the day. I save the work in progress at the appointed publishing time – 17:00.
I’ve always lived in fear that I might start a post and not be able to finish it. I’d started this one this morning and my wife just expressed an interest to go to the beach now that they’re open. I figure I have 15 minutes to type quickly and finish this off.
Wish me luck.

It was kind of a turtle week around here. First a bunch were sunning themselves at the Leamington Marina.
Then, we almost walked by this handsome fella at Sadler’s Pond in Essex.
Thanks for reading.
Please join me daily for something new and, hopefully, interesting for you. I honestly and truthfully appreciate your few moments reading my thoughts. Time willing, this summary appears every Sunday afternoon.
