Here a few patterns from my portfolio for the nature photo challenge. The bigger challenge was using my iPad to import the photos.

Norovirus. Not to be dismissed quickly
I recently came down with a bug 🐜 of some kind. It might have been food poisoning or it might have been norvovirus. It’s the first time I have been sick since 2018 and it’s the first time I have had a stomach bug since living in North Africa in 1975. So it took me…

Turning down the heat Volume 2 2022. I investigate the discontinuation of corded blinds.
I recently tried to upgrade to cellular blinds in my condo. These blinds are marketed as being able to block heat from the outside and keep heat inside.
