Fishing with Ken (and Claire)

After a two-year hiatus I fished some this Fall.

My Music -- Programs and Devices in Use

It has been a custom to listen to Pandora (a minimized copy om the browser )while at computer.
You may view my Pandora profile; -- you can get there from the link in the right sidebar.
Of late a lot of my listening has been at the Yann Tierson Station. It plays compositions often by modern composers and includes film scores. (Yann Tierson was suggested by Jeff Cliff, a Facebook friend who I met through our shared interest in Polya's "How To Solve It.")

I now (recently acquired) have 2 hand-held MP3 Players:
My LG500G TracFone has 2.8 GB of music from CDs. This collection is roughly equal to what Ann has on her MP3 Players (Sansa and Cruz tablet) mainly jazz. It is at capacity.
My Samsung Galaxy 4.0 Players has (so far) an enhanced version of the 3.8GB download -- 3.6 GB mainly Jazz. [ It also has an excellent FM Radio. I've preset: WxxI (classical)91.5; WGMC (jazz) 90.1; WbEE (popular) 92.5; WRUR, 88.6.]

Steve helped me to set-up and use software to rip CDs to MP3 format om my computer.
I have only used Windows Media Player for syncing thus far.
I have subscribed to Rhapsody; but am not up to speed with it.

Preface to Updating: Aug.-Sept -ETP and Fishing; October = Accident; ;Nov.-Dec. == New Toys and computer upgrade; Google services update

In August I had a considerable tiff with ETP. I feel the efforts then and now are not worth discussing.
ETP, now, has been down for over a month.
Persons wishing to discuss this should e-mail or call me.

September is marked for fishing with Ken Kirchgessner, Claire's boy friend, principally in Lake Ontario off Bear Creek in Ontario, NY.

October is marked for accident on 10/8/2011 which totaled the Focus.
Fortunately no one was injured and the insurance has been helpful.
I have decided to do without "wheels" as they are too expensive. As a result I am making frequent impositions to Ann Ellis for assistance, whereas before having a car mean I qas more available to Ann, to help her in emergencies.

November-December is marked for getting used to "no wheels". sleep testing (looking for things related to the accident), and new toys: LG500G TracFone #775-7809; Samsung Galaxy 4.0 Player; Webcam on PC; ---- and use of services: much Google; ICC, Internet Chess Club ( to play on-line) and Rhapsody for music download.

I have continually followed by interests in Music, Chess and Bridge, computer/Google features.

Thank you for reading.

ETP Activity 07/29/2011 # 1 --- A Quick Read Option for the article

Working to post Palimpsest of Bucky Activity
This is a sequel to Bucky's For Hire which shoiuld by brought up in my ETPSignature but the ability to edit that is one of many things screwed up on ETP.

My activity to post has been interrupted: Manny Cass's [e-mail]* posting off-topic to Palimpsest as I  am still far from completing the work to post is an annoyance; I also have a conversation with Sonny Clark who I'll be asking to comment on this Blog entry..

Here is quick read info for Palimpsest. [If you've no interest in ETP skip to another Section of the Blog.}
*It has a pitch that one might notify Manny of his persona non grata status by e-mail.
It reviews my concern about moderatr-ship and Rules. on ETP 

I am giving up on ETP. I am treated badly there

What Kind of Conservative Quiz

I know it is pretty outlandish of me to take this quiz.
Did it with motif that I tried to minimize the silliness/stupidity of proposed answers.

My Conservative Identity:

You are a Faith-Based Fighter, also known as a religious or social conservative. You believe in Judeo-Christian values, restoring God’s rightful place in the public square, and in showing all the unwashed and unsaved liberal sinners the path to salvation, or at least to the GOP.
Take the quiz at Political Humor

I took "What Kind of Liberal Quiz"

Larry Beck brought it up on Facebook on 03/04/11.

My Liberal Identity

You are a    Working Class Warrior, also known as a blue-collar Democrat. You believe that the little guy is getting screwed by conservative greed-mongers and corporate criminals, and you’re not going to take it anymore.
