Let me begin on a positive note, by thanking fellow blogger Laurie Eno of The Daily Corgi for cross posting my last entry about my corgi’s shedding. I had a HUGE spike in readership, all thanks to her. Please take a minute to check out her well-written, funny and informative blog.
Annoyance #1: This post was a long time in the writing, all because I was a good little Mac user and obediently downloaded the latest update. When I went to upload photos, iPhoto was gone and in its place, a completely different platform called “photos.”
It would be nice if Apple warned its users of these sorts of changes BEFORE they downloaded updates. At the very least, they could have warned me that I would have to change the way I store, sort and post photos. But they do not give a shit, so they didn’t, and I am still trying to figure out how everything works.

Annoyance #3: Poisonous chemicals like this, which are mass marketed to people who are too lazy to dig out their weeds. A veritable plague.
