Marty came up big last week with Collective Soul’s Hints, Allegations and Things Left Unsaid. It’s entirely possible that any number of regular players could get this #MiniMusicMonday challenge photo. Could it be you? I’d like to Keep It In... Continue reading

Too much COVID crap going on. Way too much. Make it all stop. Please! Rollback As I reported earlier this past week, the county I live in and a few surrounding ones have rolled back the COVID recovery phase we... Continue reading

I’m awake before anyone else to shower so I don’t listen to anything so as not to wake them up. I listen to music around the house otherwise he few opportunities I have. I’m very much like Paul Rudd in This is 40 where he’s the only one in his house that listens to his music. I’m afraid of playing anything that would fire off Nathan’s Bad Word Alert System (tm pending) which is very finely tuned these days and very few of the podcasts I listen to are “clean.”-- Kevin Apgar | @kapgar | kapgar.com

Here we are most of the way through October and I realized I was going to have to start planning and scheduling my Kevin’s 7 year-end lists. That’s when I realized something else, much like how everything else went kablooie... Continue reading

That’s a lot of photos. Dang. And I didn’t realize Apple Watches stores and displayed photos.

After four or more years with no signs of mice in our house whatsoever, we discovered we likely had at least one. There were bite marks in the fruit we had in a basket on our shelves. Katie called and... Continue reading

I’m using iCloud too by default. But I still go in and delete a bunch of them all the time because a big chunk of photos I take are intended for one-time use or are part of a flurry of shots I take in order to find that one perfect shot I want to keep. And then I back up to Amazon Photos for redundancy. But I still don’t really go back much farther than 2015 on iCloud because I don’t think it existed prior to that or it was still in its infancy and I did t trust it or some such. I dunno. -- Kevin Apgar | @kapgar | kapgar.com

What’s the oldest photo in the Photo Roll (or whatever they call it on an Android)? I don’t keep a lot on my phone. I back up to the cloud a lot just to get things off of here and... Continue reading

This month has kinda gotten away from me in more ways than one. I guess that's me explaining why my mid-month and end-of-month Libroqueue posts may both be happening in short order. But, then again, this month didn't necessarily go... Continue reading

Longtime friend and first-time correct guesser LeSombre, the fluffy pancake fiend, correctly guessed last week’s #MiniMusicMonday. Rejoice! Allegations have been leveled against me that my #minimusicmonday challenges are sometimes too easy. This one will be too. Sorry. It shall be... Continue reading

12 days ago marked the 10th anniversary of the public launch of Instagram, the photo sharing app that took over the world in very short order. Today marks my 10th anniversary as a user of that service. It’s probably also... Continue reading

Planning ahead can be a good thing. It allows you time to get all your proverbial ducks in a row and, if you fail at it, it allows enough time to plan alternative approaches to resolving the issue. But there... Continue reading

I started reading the first-published book in the Chronicles of Narnia series the other day and noticed that my printed copy varied from the Kindle copy in one major way... The old-fashioned children’s book art! The book didn’t have it... Continue reading

Katie gave me my anniversary gift today. It's an Amazon Fire HD 8+ (2020 model year) tablet. Back in 2011, she and I each got iPad 2s and we loved them. After a few years, they kinda became Nathan's mobile... Continue reading
