(Editor: For a while last Friday, I couldn’t post any pictures at all, not one. That was awful for a site such as this one that uses pictures and animation so heavily. GoDaddy couldn’t find the problem and kept bumping me up the tech support ladder until a guy went, “Wow, I’ve never seen this.” What it was is that I had too many pictures posted, after twenty years of posting pictures, and I filled up the server. Actually that was part of the photos I’ve published. Preciously I lost all photos from 2002 to 2012. So from 2013 to 2022 I had 250,000 pictures stored on the server—a quarter of a million. For that last few days I have been deleting pictures from the server to make the CT work again. The only casualty so far other than a worn out “delete” finger is a lot of the pages on are missing images. Eventually I’ll replace them.

So far, I’ve deleted 30,449 pictures and that freed up tons of space. Back in business.)

[Specialty Contractors Nixed] House Bill HB 735 eliminates all specialty contractors as of July 2023. All these existing companies and their employees will be out of luck come July; and if you need work or their services, “tough s**t says the Florida legislators.  You will have to hire a primary contractor because they made it illegal for counties to issue specialty licenses. Another screw up. Thousands of people screwed.

An online survey asked me if I sleep with a fan and I didn’t really know how to answer. I’m pretty sure my wife likes me and she tolerates me, but calling her a fan is pushing it.

[Christmas Costume] I just watched a Christmas party on tv where the guests had to dress up as their favorite Christmas song. I immediately knew what my costume was going to be. I will dress as an old woman (if you can believe that). And I will put some hoof prints on my back. You guessed it. I’m going as “Grandma got run over by a Reindeer!”
[Bob Dylan Rips-off Fans] Bob Dylan issues an apology for automated signatures in copies of new book only after he got caught. The times they are a’changin’. He couldn’t be bothered to hand sign the book after promising fans his signature for $599.
