Come Fly With Me

Time for said rostral portions to come up off the grindstone for a few minutes to play. I'd bookmarked Terrafly weeks ago, for later, 'when I get DSL' because it was painfully slow with dialup. Now it--well-- FLYS! You can move more or less continuously over any given terrain at various degrees of magnification, or altitude, as it were.

I've already learned some things about a couple of places around here, as in one thing in relationship to another, the fact that there are a couple of ponds not far from here that I didn't know about... but then if you know me, it's like Ann says: set me down with a map of Tinbuktu and I'm happy as a pig in mud. (Note: the link will open a 'control' subwindow and a "FlyFrame windows" where the actual images will appear.. may take a few seconds). Fly careful, now, ya hear?

So, how slow do we load Fred?

I like the changes here. You have a friendly face that is best displayed :-)

It doesn't work well for everyone, but it's nice to put a picture other than the blog design with the writing. OK, off to check out the picutures now. It's the photographs that lure me in. The writing is excellent and interesting, but it's the photographs that thrill me most. Very nice.

Never realized you were doing all of the Fragments and the web reserch via dialup. Sorta boggles the mind. You have done so much while sipping the enormous wealth of the internet through a tiny straw.

Now that you can get information through a veritable fire hose, I hope you still continue to generate original copy. I have been browsing so many blogs recently that have become mere conduits for newsfeeds. They have become commodity providers with nothing to differentiate them from each other.

I really enjoy reading the Goose Creek viewpoint, even if I don't always agree with it.

I don't doubt that you'll continue to generate original copy. That's why you got on in the first place, I think. But it's a temptation to spread out all the little treasures you find and to forget to dig back in the dark musty corner of the attic or the on-your-knees-and-peering-at-it level outdoors.
