They’d promised that today would be a rainy day. That had changed when I got up this morning. By then it said only ‘thunder showers …chance of’. Well … now it seem that could actually play out to be true. Perhaps that will freshen up the air for a little while. Most of all, I feel bad for McDuff. Slightest little change in air pressure and he goes into hiding.
There’s nothing I can do to make him feel more secure. He is skittish in general, but the weather … that’s the worst!
On a different note: I use Gmail as my main email client. Many people do. I was happy with Gmail, and didn’t think it could get any better than it was. Well … it could! Google is revamping all their products so that you’ll get a similar experience/interface all over the line. If you’ve been into Blogger’s dashbord you’ve seen big changes. Here we are in WordPress, I shouldn’t be writing about Blogger, huh?! LOL
In Gmail, you can get a preview of what it will look like when they’re finished: Go to Settings > Themes > and select a theme named «Preview»
. I find it very clean and very convenient … how the bar with the buttons follows you down as you scroll, for example.
Eventually, you’ll also get a choice of how to have your Inbox organized: Do you want Unread first, Starred first or just let it be as it was. I found this excellent! I’m obsessed with order in my Inbox … I want as few as possible there, so I chose Unread first.
This can’t be of much interest for all of you Yahoo Mail, Hotmail or AOL users out there but I wanted to write it anyway. I keep an account with each of these services too, just to keep up with what they’re up to. All three of them have recently revamped their services, bit time.
I used to be a faithful Yahoo Mail-user, but I have a few accounts that I like to be able to forward and send from my main account. Yahoo charges you for that, and I refuse to pay for something that I can get for free elsewhere (gmail).
While I’ve been typing up these, few, lines, fog has rolled in and it no longer looks like we’re going to get any thunder showers. Good for McDuff. He’s our barometer … right now he’s lying on the floor, looking perfectly cool so there’s definitely no thunder in the offing.
