One thing that bothered me was that I couldn’t automatically add new RSS feeds to Feedly. So I thought to myself, “Self – how does one find out simple stuff like this in the 21st Century?
I went to YouTube and looked for a video on the subject. And, of course found one. Here. It’s by Todd Lohenry.
I don’t know if this will be true for you, but the instructions as given were not perfect for me. At 1:45 into the video, Todd shows the text you need to add to make the handshake between Chrome and the RSS feeds you will need to add.
For your convenience, here it is – as given.
I had to remove the bracketed text, which leaves us with:
Please comment and let us know which works for you.
I logged into my account with Google Reader today and got a message that the service is being “retired” as of July 1. I found this somewhat annoying because, as you might imagine, I have subscribed to many RSS feeds over the years, and it’s always a comfort knowing where to research things when the need arises or just having someplace efficient to browse during some free moments.
What to do. Obviously, find another RSS aggregator.

I’ve been away for a while … on a kind of vacation. This was unanticipated, but necessary. Sometimes you need to do things in new directions before you can continue in the intended way.
Now I’m back.
Some things discovered along the way.
- How does the song go? “I love to work at nothing all day…” For one with an active mind, that gets old.
- I fell in love with a science fiction TV show called Fringe. One of the things I realized as I watched the show was that the opening credits were an animated keyword cloud. Here – take a look. Read More…
One of my favorite recent movies is How to Train Your Dragon
Hiccup and Astrid having a conversation about the loss of Hiccup’s dragon and more.
Hiccup and Astrid are on a cliff overlooking the ocean, where the Vikings have taken off to kill dragons in their lair. After commenting that Hiccup has lost everything and probed for why he wouldn’t kill the dragon when he had a chance, Hiccup remarks, “He looked as frightened as me.” Thinking about the dragon, Astrid starts the part that I love.
Astrid: I bet he’s really frightened now. What are you going to do about it?
Hiccup: Oh – probably something stupid.
Astrid: Good. But you’ve already done that.
Hiccup: Then something crazy.
Astrid: That’s more like it.

Yep – that’s more like it.
It was 1982. and I was seeing a friend on her death bed. She was 29, two years older than me. A group of 20 of us - family and friends – circled her bed. and one of her family led a prayer and told Sue she had to be strong. I’d never seen a physically weaker person at that point in my life. I remembered the sadness in her eyes, and knew that this was the last time I’d be seeing her. 48 hours later, Sue was gone.
Do you have a Dropbox? (http://dropbox.com) Do you like it? Do you wish you had more space, but you don’t want to shell out the $9.99 a month that they charge?
What if I told you you could get a Dropbox account for less than $10? That’s it. For a one-time payment of less than the normal monthly fee, you could get a Dropbox account with more space (nearly 20GB) for less than $10.
Would that be of interest to you?
I’ve got a link for you:
Just go there and see for yourself what’s available. I think that if you didn’t already know about this, you will be pleasantly surprised.
Happy Birthday America.
In the hustle and volatility of this year’s political season, it is easy to forget the wonder that is America. And while I’m saying it to America, I also say it to my late father, Philip Simon, who would have been 90 this year.
Happy Birthday America. May our flag wave high and proud. May you show people the route to independence and liberty. May you instill a desire for self-reliance and good work.
May you wave another 236 years, and then some.
On this day, we celebrate our independence from the England and it’s bad King George. And we should use this day to remind us to fight all kinds of dependency, especially those that would weaken the yearning to be free, brought to us by new would-be tyrants and to show them that the spirit of freedom and liberty remains steadfast in our hearts.
For those who agree with this sentiment, if you can afford it, please consider contributing to one or more of the following charities.
- American Red Cross – there’s always a need
- Wounded Warrior Project – who is better deserving that someone who fought for your freedom
- Boys and Girls Club of America – because the potential of tomorrow is in the kids of today
- Operation Shoebox – because our soldiers need reminders of and sustenance from home
- Fisher House – because having military families close at hand during times of medical procedures and recovery is critically important
And if you have the wherewithal, please contribute to other worthy causes. One thing I will be looking into over the coming months is donating time as well as money. It is so easy to get wrapped up in one’s own day-to-day stuff, and to forget that others could truly benefit from some voluntarily given help. I aim to remember.
