Due to much clamour & wails of despair & loss from the thronging crowds of my distressed blogfans, <ahem>, I am just dropping this note in to say that this hiatus is just one of those gaps that strike blogdom. I have every intention of continuing -- there is even some material I've been collecting in my blogpile for entries. "Life" tends to get in the way sometimes (& sleep & all that other stuff).

Cuteness Collective

Yahoo's Kitten Pictures search result.
If you add up all the cat pictures, or maybe all the cute kittens and puppies and dogs and cats (other mammals?), would there be more pornography or them?

Another caged cat

Caged Eyes
The resigned gentleness of the leopard I saw in the cage was in sharp contrast to the fires of napalm, yet its orange fur and basic nature called it a great predator. One of the most disturbing stories I have read is With Folded Hands by Jack Williamson, about a race of androids that imprison humanity in a cocoon of safety and idleness. All the captive generations descended from the one leopard father have been resting with folded forepaws for too many years, their world stolen from them by human curiosity.

Abusing Amazon images; Some quite odd online things

Abusing Amazon images

Ethical Considerations
Abusing Amazon images for decorative art on your own web pages makes use of Amazon's processor and bandwidth. While Amazon is generally good about letting people use their systems for interesting projects, it should be remembered that they make access available in order to ultimately sell more stuff.

My recommendation for those who want to use Amazon's services without being a total leech is to either save a copy of the resultant image and host it directly, or be sure to include a link to the Amazon sales page for the product depicted.

Ummmm ... : or, for something completely different (both possibly offensive to many people).

Chill-out city :) - probably better with sound & faster connexion

Cat on the Edge by frombrosis on Flickr

This classic tabby reminds me of my own late beloved one. Seh could get a mean look on too - reminding you that she was Ancient Royalty, from the line of the Egyptian Pharaohs. Not to be messed with.
Perspective does strange things to the mind here. Not bad ones, though.

I'm following the seasons here. The ice and snow in winter was amazingly beautiful, and spring is looking good too

Inconstant Blogger

Sorry, haven't been able to get into writing anything much except relating to the elbow-deep drifts of forms & legal documents that needed to be fixed up by this week or a large chunk of the house of cards laughingly known as my life will lose its insubstantial grip on reality, or at least a working facsimile of same.

Some forms still demand a typewriter. I was able to unearth my old Spanish manual (not Manuel) one. With working ribbon. Ha! Bureaucracy foiled again.

lacrimae rerum

lacrimae rerum, originally uploaded by Doctor Swan.

Maybe it's just the title that's giving me chills about this photo. My mind is making up a sinister story about how the shoes got there and what happened to their owners. Reminders of the Final Solution.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
