General neglect

The general neglect of this blog is due in part to not being able to consistently upload pictures.  It began in 2014 and continues.  Sometimes I can upload pictures and sometimes I can’t.

I have searched online for what the problem may be and solutions, and have tried most of them.  My file permissions have been checked, and changed, and changed again with no effect.  I changed the way wordpress handles image directories.  None of it seems to have any effect.  Sometime sit works, sometimes it doesn’t.

The rest of the cause for the neglect is too much work, and no internet access at work.

The image problems have been the same from my home computer, my phone, my father in law’s computer, my wife’s computer, and computers at work on those rare occasions when I have been in a place where I have internet access.


Happy Patriot’s Day

Concord Hymn

By Ralph Waldo Emerson

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
   Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood
   And fired the shot heard round the world.
The foe long since in silence slept;
   Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
   Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.
On this green bank, by this soft stream,
   We set today a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
   When, like our sires, our sons are gone.
Spirit, that made those heroes dare
   To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
   The shaft we raise to them and thee.
