What I Did on My Summer Vacation

After a rather disconcertingly turbulent direct flight home, I’ve spent my day basically relaxing and getting caught up to my normal routine, so I haven’t had a chance to get on the site and blog.  More time has been spent deleting useless content and ditching those stupid bot-created user accounts.  Does anyone else get those out there in Rochester blogging land?  Is this strictly a WordPress thing, or do other platforms have the same woes?  Anyone who can answer that, please do!

In any event, I’ve not had a chance to thank Sayhar for keeping the blog fresh for the last few days.  I loved reading the posts he graced the site with on those few occasions when I got to a computer whilst enjoying the 90+ weather in Florida.  Thank you very much, Sayhar!  And thanks to RochesterTurning for the temporary use of your brain-trust!

We’re celebrating our first year together, and this vacation was awesome, spending an entire four days at the Don Cesar in St. Petersburg, Fl.  We did a bunch of things and ate way too much.  Frequent visitors of this site will not be at all surprised to find I’ve got a ton of pictures to go through.  560 images, to be exact.  I’ll be getting into them in more detail soon, posting the results to Flickr, but for now, here is a teaser from our sailing excursion on Tampa Bay for an anniversary treat:

Isn’t that amazing? My dad always taught me: sometimes, the difference between a good photographer and a great photographer is who brought more film. That’s definitely the case with a lot of the shots taken on this vacation!


I think you have done a wonderful job with the WordPress software, as I could not figure out how to modify it, and could not find “instructions” that I could understand or follow using the access I currently have – it was set up for me and looks terrible on my website (which will be changed soon) – I am constantly getting stuff that is Spam, on my “blog/website” mostly with Italian language and website email addresses, according to one security site it is actually coming from Germany, the Italian is to throw off the investigators. I set it up to require approval, for feedback, no actual feedback ever shows up, I delete it all. I also get lots of similar spam and sign-ups in MySpace, Yahoo Groups, and some other “Social Networking” sites, some of which were actually setup by spammers to gather email addresses and other information – according to some site feedback I have found. I enjoy your writing style, have been reading your blog for a few weeks now, including some of the older posts. Politically, I sometimes agree with your comments. I also have a Flickr account, under the name stalemate, I have put some photos of Rochester on there too. I will have to explore your site a bit more to see all it has to offer. – JG
