Here’s an eagle. Saw it on top of a tree in the Ketchikan harbor. During our Ketchikan harbor tour. It’s kind of zoomed way in, but I thought it was cool seeing so many baldies. Part of my famous Bird series.

There hasn’t been much content here lately. That doesn’t seem to have upset my Loyal Readers too much, but I do feel they need to get a little more for their money. What money? Well you may ask. The answer: none to speak of. But one or two of them may click on my advertisements and earn me a penny or two.

Anyway. I think the lack of content is largely due to the lack of anything interesting to write about. That wouldn’t normally be considered a problem on the Morrowlife blog, but still. So let’s think of something interesting going on in my life.

Plans for next summer are starting to firm up already. A little. We have Young Women camp during the week of July 15. And the family reunion for LRN4’s side of the family is also probably going to happen in July. Don’t know when yet. Don’t exactly know where yet either, but it appears to be narrowed down to a cruise to Catalina and Ensenada vs. a train trip to the Grand Canyon via the route taken in the pre-automotive days. We voted for the train ride, but we’d do either and be happy.

Nothing else is on the 2010 vacation itinerary at this point, but I imagine we might want to take our Spring Break campout, along with several other shorter camping trips. Don’t know where to go in the spring. This year’s trip to Mt. Madonna was way too cold to repeat. The previous two trips to Big Sur were beautiful, but you can only go back to the same campground so many times. Especially when it’s in the middle of nowhere and you’ve been to everything and seen everything around it as much as you really ever expect to want to. Admittedly, it’s a beautiful middle of nowhere, but still.

So do any of my Loyal Readers have a suggestion for next spring’s camping trip location? Here’s your chance to really make a difference in the world. Don’t blow it.

I had been having massive problems with the iPhone OS 3.1 update, like many, many other people. My most common problem was what people are calling Coma Mode. You put it to sleep and can’t ever wake it back up again without rebooting. It was happening one to two times a day, and was very annoying. I also had one instance of it locking up in the middle of a phone call. I read the blogs and Apple help groups, and lots of people are recommending pretty harsh treatments, mainly consisting of resetting the phone to factory settings and reinstalling everything, and then not upgrading to 3.1. One or two people, however, recommended turning off Push notifications and disabling Safari’s Fraud Warning function. I tried those things, along with deleting the one and only app I had that used Push, two days ago (or was it yesterday?) and haven’t had a single crash since. Of course, past performance is not necessarily an indicator of future results, but I’m cautiously optimistic. It was getting tedious.

So for my iPhone-owning Loyal Readers who are having crashing problems with your OS 3.1 update, you’re welcome.

Many thanks to LRN1 and LRN4, who pointed out that yesterday’s Monkey news also qualified as Food Violence news. I appreciate your involvement.

That’s enough for today. Let’s end with today’s Toilet News: the ultimate running toilet.

See you tomorrow.

    I'd tackle that thing if I saw it running at MY kids.

    I'm also anxiously awaiting camping place suggestions. I'm not coming up with any myself, right off hand.
