Nice Day for Mr. PopSlider

Our chatty correspondent C.Bear has posted a new “Bear Story” in WRITING. It’s not much of a story, he says, just our way of saying “hi everybody” and assuring our pals that the fellers are, well, very much the fellers.

The name of C.Bear’s new story is “Nice Day for Mr. PopSlider.” When you go to the WRITING index, just click the link to the story in the left hand menu!

Bear of The Day

Well, you were probably wondering: who is “Bear of the Day?” For that matter, who are “The Bears?” Visit C.Bear’s World to find out. We have Bear Honorariums going back to the year 2000. Good to January 2006. 🙂

Also, check out PHOTO Notes for our new picture postings by Swan and Art Neighbor.

Do you follow Astronomy? We know at least one of you does … we don’t get the telescopes out much this year, but we still enjoy “naked eye” and binocular sessions. As we write these up, we’re posting periodic impressions of our night sky observations.

Site Updates

  • Recently we’ve upgraded a number of site engines under the hood, including PhP and MySQL. You won’t see that, but you should see snappier response from our “blog” engine, WordPress, which we use to power the Commentary and Computers index pages, and PHOTO Notes, and our own quasi-weblog, My Notes. Tonight we upgraded all four of these departments to WordPress 1.5, which features a better firewall and comment control. You can visit any of these pages in the same old way (the blue menu above is the easiest). You won’t see much visibly different, but we will gradually be turning Comments back on to see how it goes. You will have to register to enter your first comment, and then it will be queued for moderation. If approved, we’ll try to have first time comments posted within 24 hours. After that, no further moderation should be required.
  • For over a half a year at, most of our new posts now appear directly in our WordPress weblog format pages: My Notes and Photo Notes, in particular. Another way to see what’s new is to just go to the main index page. Look at the most recent post dates for each of our major departments.
  • We have a new story in Writing for any of you who are “Bear” fans. See C.Bear’s Universe for the very latest in Bear thoughts on life and leisure.
