It’s hot, hot, hot, so I’m in the coolest room in the house putting together a world pool house. Continue reading “From the world pool: July 28, 2018”
The biggest thing this week that I saw was the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook scandal. Lots of links for that, and lots else as well. Continue reading “From the world pool: March 24th, 2018”
It’s been a rough couple of months, so I’m only now getting back to actually trying to blog. Apart from all the photos I have, there’s a considerable backlog in my World Pool box. Here’s a start.

Last week was unrelentingly grim. This week is equally awful, but I found I had to take some breaks for the sake of sanity. Still, there’s a lot of depressing stuff in this post, but I’ve tried to find more cheerful things to balance it.
The flurry of stuff going on after the election got me all twitchy about political reading and posting, but somehow I haven’t managed to post anything now for a while despite collecting links. And you know what? I think it can get overwhelming. So I’m going to trim it back.
…you might not notice, overall. But I really did. Continue reading “From the world pool: January 13, 2017”
