I have spent the last four hours banging my head against the mainly intuitive and well-designed Blogger interface, but I don't have much to show for it. Half of that time went into creation of a long posting about a book I brought with me to St. John, Blink by Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point. I found his web site and an anecdote by another blogger, which I pasted into this space and tried the "blockquote" button... But after two hours of happy work, it all disappeared. The rest of the time was spent relearning how to load photos to the blog, which required downloading a new version of Picassa. I am spent. I worked through the normal time for lunch, snacking on almonds, dried cherries and Goldfish, drinking cold coffee. Not that I am complaining, given that I am working on the porch of our rented studio apartment, looking out at palm trees and listening to the ocean 50 yards across the street. It's actually on the cool side in paradise today, and cloudy. Over and out.
