Down on the Corner

The dark end of the street.


he age of experimentation continues. I found out yesterday that I had no idea how to change the color of the tag cloud or the calendar. I’m sure instructions are buried deep in the 900 pages of “how to” notes. Until I find it, you won’t be seeing those blocks again.

Today, I’m experimenting with making the blog page look more like a website page. The biggest issue is with the drop caps. If you notice there is a space between the first letter and the rest of the sentence. I don’t believe that I can correct it because that would eliminate the drop cap.

It’s something that I can live with.

The picture. Ah, the picture.

The photograph is of The French Quarter during the blue hour. It’s a residential street, rather than someplace like noisy Bourbon Street.

One thing to note right off, is not to trust WordPress AI when it comes to spelling. You should see the things it comes up with.

For instance, coal mine is calming according to them.

For a while it fooled me. I’m a notoriously bad typist, but these errors weren’t even near my key stroke pattern.

Now I know and you do too.

Learning, Always Learning I’ve been at it again. It doesn’t help that DALL-E sends me credits so I can play without cost. I suppose there is the sunk cost of my time. But,I don’t mind that as long as I’m learning… something. This is a great example of synthetic media generated by AI using only…

What’s Cooking?

I like to eat. You like to eat. I also like to cook, but not all the time. Musical Miss is a better cook than I am, but she doesn’t like to cook everyday. So, we go out to eat in restaurants, cafes or buffets. Well, buffets are out with the arrival of CoVid and…

Spring Equinox

Equinox. Rebirth. The representation of new life and light, new beginnings, path and seeds. Seeds? Read on. You’ll see. The equinox represents the need for balance because the day and night are equal in length. The first day of spring begins at 5:24 pm EDT. Now the days grow longer as light wins over the…
