15:32 Macron, Le Pen projected to advance to presidential second round in France »John Cairns Blog
So the centrist-independent Emmanuel Macron and the hard-right Marine Le Pen are projected to be in the runoff for president of France.  This may not seem like such a shock result to you, the polling had predicted this same outcome, but in fact this is a major political revolution for France. Both mainline parties, the Socialists […]

01:00 [META] Goodbye, Livejournal »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
On the 9th of April, I deleted my LiveJournal. I wrote about it at length. Suffice it to say that I, too, share in the concerns of many many other users that the new Terms of Service imposed on LiveJournal's user base pose too great a threat to the rights of users to be tolerable.

I undeleted my account today. In the end, I decided that trying to slow down link rot on the Internet was a good reason to keep this up as an archive. I am not going to be active here. For that, see rfmcdonald at Dreamwidth, A Bit More Detail over on WordPress, and over at Facebook for starters on social media.

Goodbye, all of you here. It has been fun. I hope to see you all elsewhere.

photo - Iceberg Alley

It is hard to tell in the first shot how big the 'icebergs' are. If you look at the right and to the left of where I am standing you can see they are very small. A day before these shots I had several people tell me that huge icebergs were passing Pinette and Point Prim, both parts of my community. I did not get to these spots till later the next day and all that was left were small pieces of melting ice, the largest being the size of a regular washer or dryer. Needless to say, I was a bit disappointed. At the same time, Newfoundland is having a an unusual amount of icebergs passing their shores, a boon for tourism and a sign of global warning. Check out these links: Iceberg Map and Prov. Govt Website. I won't even get started on photo galleries of the phenomenon. These were taken one week ago and I did see boats in the water that day.
