Q: Pixlr editing problem

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

I noticed a lot of unhappiness between JPG members lately. It seems to me that Pope's quip "On life's vast ocean diversely we sail, Reason the card, but passion is the gale.” could describe JPG lately. He also pointed out, “To err is human, to forgive divine.”

In the words of Rodney King, “Can we all get along?”

"Half of the people can be part right all of the time,

Some of the people can be all right part of the time.

But all the people can't be all right all the time

I think Abraham Lincoln said that.

'I'll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours,'

I said that."-Bob Dylan

I hope JPG's World of Tomorrow is a peaceful one.

My neighbor's storm door was swingin' in the breeze when I shot this.

    You done good...again, John. The sepia is right on.
    I am trying to find the time to keep up with you and other prolifics out there, but I am reviving "the band"...like Jake and Ellwood, and I have run into my own "Penguin". I am Cordovox Man, and it seems there is a market for it...again.
    I am looking for a good guitar man.
    Your work continues to inspire.

    i was going to use a linton-ism and say "rocking the theme" (all rights reserved, John Linton, JPG member), but I wanted to find an alternate way of expressing that, so after a bit of time on thesaurus.com, i came up with this...
    "convulsing the subject"
    good on ya, John.
