Phone Died

This morning, I woke up, looked at the clock, and it was 5:10. my phone alarm didn’t go off. It’s been giving trouble, not coming on when I wake it,  but this has been the first potentially catastrophic failure.

100% of my active readers demand more Italy pictures. Therefore, I have decided to post almost all of them. Starting today, I will upload pics in post per day in Italy groups. 

Stay tuned!

Sorting Pictures

I’ve been sorting pictures from Italy, Getting them off my phone and camera, changing the names by date.

In the olden days, we’d get our film developed, take out all the good pictures, show thrm around, maybe put them in a photo album. The not so good pictures would be left in the envelope and eventually end up in a trunk in the attic or basement, or the garbage.

Nowadays, the not so good pics get deleted, the ok pictures get saved on a disc somewhere, the favorites get posted online. It seems worse, like the pictures don’t physically exist. If humanity ever descends back to the dark ages, and I’m sure it will, the digital age of humans will be lost. For example, do you have data on 3.5 inch discs in your closet? I do. Do you have a device that can read a 3.5 inch disc? I don’t. VHS tapes? We’re losing data even in our lifetimes.

In many ways, the old way was better. Hard copies.
