What's NEW in the Wrack Line Blog?
Wrackling Blog's "background re-construction" FINISHED.
The Wracklineblog now uses just one "style sheet" rather than several, and should now look more consistent - and hopefully present a better, less cluttered appearance. New information was added to some of the beach pages, and some corrections have been made. So. . .
UPCOMING. We're about to add 60 more ambient song selections to our "top 150 ambient" section. Then follows some updates to the "Photography tips section based on some things learned while photographing the recent Oregon air show.
Also, we will soon be releasing three useful HTML development tools (almost finished):
A Display and Positioning discussion with detailed examples and code snippets
An HTML/CSS example page with code snippets
A very nice, easy-to-use HTML color code generator, with textures and patterns
Click the player to listen to some very relaxing music by the author (It's been composed especially for a particularly calming effect.)
The Wracklineblog debuts 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
It also debuts with some miscellaneous essays. These range from simple reveries, lighting a campfire with damp wood, the Texas Stadium implosion, Tips on buying a refrigerator, and a few more. These used to exist on my prior blog ("Beardedblogger.com" - now offline). Planned additions to the Wrackline Blog are:
Health and well-being related topics, including nutrition info, self-applied muscle massage and the elimination of muscle pain (that's right: you can toss the aspirin), chiropractic, information about the "intraocular lens implant", vertigo "conditioning", and the like.
More miscellaneous essays, possibly including cleaning tips, observations on the Stock Market, rants on excessive NOISE in our society, and such.
Photo collages set to music.
Some of the above have already been completed, or at least partially completed. including the HTML color/texture tool.
So they will be added shortly.
And finally. . . some serious stuff: I plan numerous essays about psychological and/or philosophical items, many of which will be based on 40 years of entries in a journal. Such essays may be of interest. Who knows? They may even be healing.
