Mansfield Hollow State Park, Mansfield

By changing the settings that I mentioned in the last blog post, I inadvertently fixed a problem I spent too much time trying to figure out. I had been using Google Reader to read a few blogs of interest. In Google Reader, I subscribed to my own blog to see if it would show up on blog stats. I was quite dismayed that I couldn't see my whole post.  All I saw was the first 3-5 sentences, no photographs. Try as I might, I couldn't figure out how to see the rest of my blog posts. One of the settings that I changed a couple of days ago fixed this problem! BTW, reading a blog in Google Reader appears to be invisible to sitemeter because it didn't increase the number of times the blog had been viewed.

Over the years, I've built a small campfire that has weathered the howling wind and stormy skies. Lately, it seems no matter how hard I try or what direction I go in, I end up circling that fire, round and round. Poking it with a stick isn't much help either, so I'm trying to find a way to stoke it. I suspect by the time I get to Chautauqua I will be a sorry sight, like the lost and starving hiker wearing tattered clothes.

Currently, I'm trying to rework this outline to incorporate more scientists and still maintain a story line. Although I'm not quite sure why more is better when one by itself is quite exciting. I'm starting to wonder about a few things and I think maybe they aren't quite as certain as I thought they were. Time will tell.

These photographs were taken at Mansfield Hollow State Park. On a bitter cold day, Walt and I hiked around the upper portion of the lake then out to the levee. The wind was fierce by the dam.  It used all its might to force us back.
