JPG v RAW (again)
At some point this debate will be over. Right? Sigh, I doubt it, especially as new sites, apps and more come about with the abilities to read ‘photo’ files. Also all the uses of these files, or maybe better said the ‘diminished’ use or need for higher and higher resolution. There’s a debate in itself. Enjoy the read

Editor’s Thoughts
Taking inventory of your social presence, heck online presence should be a regular event. And it should not just be done once a year, or even twice. Also updates such as headers, photos and even product  or service descriptions should occur at least every other month. Your competition is doing that, you should also.

Eight New Socials to Look At

You have to like a place that offers bees sanctuary and does it in a very peaceful way. Take a look here.

Actually the entire website has many great pages and inspirations. And is my website of the day

Editor’s Thoughts
Going to try this as the new newsletter of the day/week. I post on here most days and it gets annoying to get out a bunch, and also it will be nice for you to have it all in one spot. AND no need to hunt down an email from weeks ago. The goal is two-three items a day. A good productive hint. A website that is cool for the Website of the Day. And perhaps a list or steps to create coolness. And if it needs a bit more a link to the section where the details exist.

National Dog DAy

National Dog Day!! WOOF!

Man’s best friend. You knew there had to be a day for this, and today is that day. A dog truly is a different creature. They do have a sense of loyalty to their owner, especially if they are spoiled. If you have a dog please share. I have only had one, still do. Found her in a paint bucket. Have always has a cat, or two or three. She has her own Instagram page also.

KC Chiefs

SAD NEWS from the NFL – Chiefs

Saddened by this NFL news. I knew nothing about football sitting there with my leg in cast in Atlanta. Was watching what turned out to be one of the longest games in NFL history. On a small black and white color TV. The Chiefs logo was so cool and been a fan since. Their quarterback Len Dawson has passed away at 87. Great guy and served so many others after his retirement. Rest in Peace Len Dawson.

bees, honey bees

Honey Bees, Have Their Day Too

Looking for my honey bee video from one the Celebration Days in Glendale. These guys get busy and don’t much care what goes on around them. Pretty cool. Also when my purple bush blossoms they get very busy.

What is cool about this day is that ir has nothing to do with the 20th, but that is the 3rd Saturday of the month, August. Who knew right?

soft ice cream

Soft Ice Cream Has Its Day

I guess ice cream always has its day. And today it is soft ice cream’s turn. Pretty cool that you can go into a number of places and walk out with a soft treat. It is what Dairy Queen makes the best after all. They do add some extras sometimes.

Did you know, on this day, the 17th of August
