Luna Moth!!!!

I found this Luna moth in the parking garage yesterday morning as I was biking in to work.  I was worried that someone had hit it with their car and it was injured, but it was just hunkered down for the day.  This is one of the prettiest moths.  I would have assumed they are pretty rare since I have never seen one before, but Wikipedia says they are common but are rarely seen because as an adult they only live a few days and are mostly out at night.  Based on the pictures there I think this is a female.  

Can you imagine all of the effort it takes to make the biological conversion to this, only to wear the wings and color for a few days? Or that the adult form moth doesn't have a mouth and so doesn't eat anything, just existing to mate, avoid predators and then die of starvation?

Being 4 is hard

Becca has been frustrated with life lately.  I keep thinking as a parent that I would have figured out how to parent around temper-tantrums by now, but this kid is stretching my patience.

The Curse of the Missing Glove

Somehow I have a pile of gloves, yet not one pair. Either I have been gardening as Michael Jackson or there is a nefarious glove stealing gnome.

Test email with video

I have been playing around with how to update my blog with my phone, since google has retired its iphone app.  There is no mobile support for the normal blogger interface.  I am afraid this means that google is planning on retiring blogger.  I am hoping that isn't the case.

I have felt almost exactly like this recently about social media, except I love having a smart phone.  I love being able to look up things on maps and get email and my calendar.  I didn't have it for a few weeks at work and I felt like I was going crazy.

What do I do when Blogger shuts down?  Should I transfer this blog to another site, buy some internet space of my own?

Testing email blog post

My blog has been particularly silent recently. A couple of reasons: my work has been crazy, then blogger shut down the iPhone app, Trump was elected and my words to describe my feelings about it were particularly angry and obscene, and then as the days went by I used Facebook more and more. I have decided to try and revive it, but google seems determined to eliminate blogger from its portfolio. I am testing using the email upload since there is no mobile solution for this blogging platform.
