Today I planted a dogwood tree (cornus kousa), sowed some seeds, did some raking, etc.
Every time I dig up the yard a robin shows up to look for worms in the freshly dug soil. Sometimes he makes conversation in bird-speak. Sometimes he brings a friend.
I like to think of the two of us as friends.
But is it the same robin that I see every time? I have no idea.

I saw Isle of Dogs last night and it was a good movie
I will need the help of an admin to catch an error with the app. When uploading a new banner or a profile picture, it sounds that instances return an error 500. It would help me to know what is going wrong with my call to "update_credentials" because I didn't change this piece of code. Thanks for helping.
SmugMug has acquired Flickr? That is probably a good thing because... SmugMug isn't Verizon?
The only thing that stops a bad programmer with a bad programming language (definitely me) is a good programmer with a good programming language (maybe me)
