Ukulele NOOK and progress that isn't...

A few random subjects have come up that probably rate mentioning here, since I am still retaining a vestige of interest in blogging! To update my NOOK usage, the device is doing a good job, and doing a good job of accumulating more eBooks. The advantage of the Simple Touch is its one function. I read with it. No back lighting is different from my previous readers, but I got used to it fast. Buying is easy, too easy, and archiving and arranging the books is effortless. And what brought me back to the blog is that friend is beginning a new blog, and she wants to use WordPress. I went on over and got a blog name and played a bit. What's the deal with that? I don't see any advantage to WP over Blogger at all, and in fact for the price (FREE) Blogger offers so much more tweakability. I thought I would change the font on the WP blog, only to find out that that is one more thing you cannot really do unless you pay or use some convoluted coding.  SO here I am using the new Blogger interface since I tried it and cannot see how to get back to the old creation interface. New things for new times. Not necessarily better things for better times though.  You wonder why the ukulele and the dashboard dolls, eh? Back last July I got ukulele fever, and bought a pretty pineapple Luna ukulele. It's a stress relieving fun pastime. I recommend it to all. Read more here at the other blog.
