JSON, Custom HTML and a Rainy Walk

JSON, Custom HTML and a Rainy Walk

JSON Today I spent some time expanding my knowledge of JSON because understanding how JSON works, and how it works, opens doors. Every social network allows you to download your file as a JSON file. If you learn how to use JSON you can then re-use your data on a site of your own design, according to your own moral code. WordPress and Custom HTML I was also playing with static pages from the older parts of my website and…

A Cloudy Sky

A Cloudy Sky

Today as I walked from one village to another I looked up the hill and I saw a cloud arch framing a nearby village and I had to take a picture. The framing of the image was rather unique. It is below. Is it kitsch? There is a good chance. It was unique, so I captured it. I liked looking up at the sky today because it was different from usual. It was full of interesting clouds and the light…

I Don’t Need to Go For A One And a Half Hour Walk

I Don’t Need to Go For A One And a Half Hour Walk

MétéoSuisse note encore qu’après les deux mois d’été très humides de juin et juillet, des précipitations inférieures à…

Five Storks In A Field and A High River

Five Storks In A Field and A High River

It has rained enough to fill the rivers now. I walked in the rain for an hour and a half and might have crossed one cyclist and one other person. I did count five herons in a field. In one location several roads are saturated by rainwater flowing off of the fields.

The Unthreatening Clouds

The Unthreatening Clouds

The unthreatening clouds did not bother me during my bike ride but it was cooler than sometimes at this time of year. I occasionally felt that an extra layer or two would be welcome. That’s unusual in July at this time of year. I chose routes that kept me as far from cars as possible. I also chose wider roads. They may be safer. The challenge is to find roads where cars are banned. We will see if the rain…
