More Ambition II

Obviously, that's what I need... more ambition.
Had a bit of it over the past couple of weeks, but it seems to have faded in the more recent days.  I did get my truck washed, and also installed some window tint film at the top edge of the windshield.  Additionally I reglued the mount and resinstalled the large five segmented Wink mirror.  One of the two mounts was coming loose earlier this summer and I went back to the stock mirror.  Great to have the expanded rear vision again.  I can live with/drive with the standard/stock one, but sure like having the bigger unit.

Last week, the same crew that painted the house last summer came by and repaired our chimney.  We'd had a guy do some work on it a few years ago, but it didn't seem to last, or perhaps he didn't go as far in to it as was needed.  Anyway, they discovered that most of the mortar between the bricks had disappeared.  The question on all our minds was, "how is this thing still standing?"  Anyway they replaced the mortar, rebuilt the upper cap and reinstalled the vent caps over the individual flues.  Looks better and is definitely a lot sturdier.  Should be a while before we have to do anything more with it.  (We had some pretty gusty winds a few days ago and it seemed to hold up just fine.)

A couple months ago I went to get on my Facebook Page and was unable to do so.  Thus I haven't been providing llinks there to posts here.  A day or so ago I tried again and now I can get back to it.  But it seems as if they are changing it somewhat and I'm still trying to learn my way around.  Biggest thing is, I can't find the Pages Feed, where I can see the latests posts on the Pages I've liked as my Page.  I always find interesting things there to post to my Page.  (Nor can I find the list of Pages liked by my Page.)

Noticed that in large, what they are doing is making the desktop version more like the mobile version and I don't know if that's a good thing or not.  Noticed that Twitter did something similar a couple of years ago.  Nice, I suppose for those folks who do most of their social media stuff via phone or tablet, but I always thought the desktop versions were better... for both platforms.  But anyway, I'm back on Facebook, and hopefully as we move forward, I'll post links there to get you to what I post here.  And if you want, you might scroll back through the last several posts here on LJ as some were never linked via Facebook.  There are a few updates to "Thoughts on Writing" and a few more excerpts from the Stone Island Sea Stories.
