11 Dec 12. My graduate school adviser was a computer guru among many things. He often commented that if you have to read the instruction manual for a piece of software it was too poorly written to be considered usable. Although I didn't, and don't, fully agree with that observation, he has a good point. In many respects I find that I tend to follow that approach. So Monday evening (obviously didn't read the bottle) I took an Aleve on the encouragement of a few folks to deal with a sore shoulder which other script and OTC pharmaceuticals have not fully handled. Neither did the Aleve but it did give me some serious vertigo such that I wasn't doing anything much on Tuesday including the Daily Image. Fortunately, like Alice found out, if one drug takes you in one direction, there is another to bring you back. Almost makes me wonder what I missed out in the 60s. Not really! So here you have what should have been received yesterday. It is another shot taken in the dahlia garden in Silverdale. Other than some tight cropping, darkening the background in the URH corner, cloning out the "damaged' section of the petals, and increasing the fine detail a bit to bring out the structure of the petals, this is pretty much a straight shot.
