Wrack Line Blog "about" and "AD policy" can be found below the picture. What's a "Wrack Line"
What's NEW in the Wrackline blog?
NEW: "Don't Just Incubate. Fight Back!" This article suggests that, while there are no cures - or even guaranteed preventatives - for viral infections, trying an ancient herbal compound may be better than doing nothing.
NEW: "Marvel Avengers Timeline". Here's highlights of key events, key names, Infinity Stone stats, and even Ending Credits Easter Eggs! It's under the "Essays" category.
NEW: "Home Theater Made Simple". How to set up your own Home Theater system. Also has a Magic Decoder Ring for all the BUZZWORDS. Just updated with more info on HDR and Dolby Atmos.
NEW: "Leaf Blowing". A simple essay on mulching vs bagging your leaves in the fall. But, check out the final section, which is a philosophical musing on Earth, Air, and the Tree.
UPDATED: "Jimmie's Top 500 Ambients": 26 new tracks have been added, for an actual total of 620!
RECENT: "Jimmie's Top 100 Ambient Christmas Tracks". Here's Jimmie's list of Christmas music with depth of feeling!
Check out "The Standard Superhero Plot"! It's a spoof on Superhero movies, since every superhero movie has essentially the SAME plot! Look in "Essays".
Check out "Examples of CSS styles". This is a sample, with CSS code, of all the "styles" used throughout the Wracklineblog. It's in the "HTML/CSS Goodies" section at the bottom of the site links list on the right.
Check out "Examples of this CSS tables". This is a sample (with CSS code) of the "tables" used in the Wracklineblog. It's also in the "HTML/CSS Goodies" section at the bottom of the site links list on the right.
Check out "Tips on using the iPhone Camera". Make use of the Little Yellow Rectangle. Learn how to "stop down" for more dramatic pictures. Lock the focus and exposure. Plus two VERY useful gadgits.
Check out "Wishlist for New Homes"! I have actually not found a more comprehensive list in my own internet searching.
Updated Weekly: "Entries from Jimmie's Journal." The home
page will feature a quote from my journals, which span from 1975 to the present. It is hoped that these little quotes
may lead to a little extra depth of feeling for you, and that some of them might even lead to a greater understanding
of our relationship to the Universal Consciousness. And also, some of 'em are for just for the sake of humor! There's also
a "Previous Journal Entries" link for past quotes. This is also updated weekly (unless, of course, yours truly is busy
fiddling with home improvement or landscaping projects!)

3/3/2020: A Better Way to View Spending Money
I have spent a week or so making "expense reports" for the last 5 years, using my wife's hand-written data. When I totaled them all up, the amount was a bit of a shocker.
"We have spent too much money from the retirement account!"
Well, that was the untrained thought. The thought that might arise from a spiritually trained mind - a mind which accepts that money ("Supply") is handled by a generous Spirit - might have gone like this:
Instead of saying "We spent too much money", what if we said "The money was there when we needed it and, having spent it, received 'too many' gifts".
The money was Spirit's way of providing.

The Wracklineblog started with the "Hwy 101 Beaches" links. These lead to individual pages covering more than 70 beaches from
Astoria, Oregon down to Brookings, Oregon. Each page has beach/park information, usually a picture of the entrance sign,
and one or more scenic pictures taken by the author.
Here's an illustrated sample
However, the Wracklineblog has expanded, and now has photography tips, an exhaustive list of the most moving ambient music, and a growing health/nutrition section, with vegetarian recipes and nutrition information, and various essays, including the newly-added "excerpts from Jimmie's Journals". Some "HTML coding" references and a cool HTML color tool have also been added.
Wrackline "AD Policy":
NO ads! NOTHING that moves! Period.
However some of the sections have links that will allow you to purchase books and/or other items. For example, the Photography Tips section offers links to purchase the cameras/lenses that were used to create all the pictures in the blog. If you have an interest for any of these books or items, purchasing them by way of these links will provide a little extra income for the author, who is retired.
NOTE: Clicking on these Amazon links takes you to the same location that you would get if you searched for and clicked on yourself. The security level is the same, and there is no difference in price. Amazon has an "Associates" package, in which Amazon itself pays a small percentage to the referring web site.
