When I check out a WordPress or RapidWeaver theme, one of the first things I do is see what the mobile navigation looks like. More often than not, the designer has got some odd, “creative,” idea of what that should be. Take a hint! Stick to something that’s familiar and functional, like the stock Bootstrap navs.
I’ve come to the conclusion that there are some people that it really is more work than it’s worth trying to get anything done with them. There may be a perfectly good reason(s) why this is so, but the bottom line is if it works, or doesn’t work, you. If the interactions just leave you exhausted, maybe it’s time to take a break.
Went to see “Spider-Man: Homecoming” yesterday. If you were expecting anything remotely related to the original Spiderman, forget it. Expect instead to be assaulted by a relentless stream of CGI wizardy.

Each year I get slammed by allergies. Yesterday as I was walking home I realised that I was not having my usual sneezing fits that I’d been having for the last few months. Then it dawned on me, the allergy season had passed. I started thinking back to when I first felt the itchy eyes and runny nose. Without an exact date, I’d ballpark it started in April. Now it was July. So roughly three months is when the air is full of pollen. Maybe that’s the time to split Sonoma county!
I should know better by now, but forgot tonight to thoroughly wash my hands after handling the “Dave’s Insanity Sauce” bottle. Hours later, I rubbed my eye only to immediately feel the burn of the capsaicin. Hurt like hell, trust me! Raced to the sink and splashed water on my face in an effort to shut down the pain. After a few minutes the sting was gone, but wow – don’t want to do that again!

Watching “America in Color: The 1920s” on the Smithsonian channel. Though it’s old black and white film footage that’s been colorized, the effect is still strong. Highly recommend!
It’s very sad to see a person that used to have a sharp mind showing signs that they’re losing it. Repeating the same story twice with seemingly no recollection that they’d just told me that only an hour ago.
