Carrying a camera with me most of the time, I take a lot of pictures. I take pictures during my bicyclecommute. I take pictures when I fly. I even take pictures while I wait for my flight. And I post a bunch of them.
Of the pictures I took and posted in 2013, these are nine of my favorite.
Click the pictures to enlarge them. You can then use your arrow keys to move between them.
Finally, I include my favorite animated GIF from the year.
That makes an even ten. Do you have a favorite? Did I miss your favorite?
No, I didn’t actually post this picture on the 28th. The more I looked at the picture, the more I liked it. I back-dated the publication so I could easily remember the day I took the picture. Actually posted Dec 30. ↩
Oh, the joys of getting old(er). I just received a sales call for an “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” system. Instead of being forthright, the caller was “just confirming delivery of the system.” When I tried to say I wasn’t interested, she talked over me, following her script.
I’m not sure what bothers me more: that some businesses consider deception and rudeness a viable business strategy, or that these business target seniors.
Please, read the Boulder Pledge1 and consider expanding its application from spam email to junk mail and junk phone calls:
“Under no circumstances will I ever purchase anything offered to me as the result of an unsolicited e-mail message. Nor will I forward chain letters, petitions, mass mailings, or virus warnings to large numbers of others. This is my contribution to the survival of the online community.”
Yeah, I’ve written about the Boulder Pledge before. ↩
