This may be the end

I just got back from vacation and find that Blogspot has completely changed the way I interact, edit, and schedule my posts.  I am very dissatisfied with their arbitrarily changing something after so many years of using it. As a result, I will give myself until this weekend to decide if I want to keep doing this blog or shut it down completely.

Stay tuned, if you're interested.

I've really no idea why, but over the past several months I've become enamored with the back of sunflowers. As a result, you all have to suffer through my enamorization (is that a word?). Got this one at work. (click the photo for more detail). Redmond, Oregon; August, 2011.

We really like the State Fair. It's a throwback to an earlier, seemingly easier time. Attending is a traditional event here at the Grind. We'll post some picks of this year's event over the next weeks, starting with this capture of a couple of colorful macaws.
