Pa was airline staff and we got free tickets yearly but hotels and the rest were not free. So the only way to do it affordably was to rent a car and drive the brood through places like the islands of Hawaii (we covered pretty much all the islands) and the Grand Canyon.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989802b970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Mb_nz_2017_17-s\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989802b970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989802b970d-800wi\" style=\"width: 800px;\" title=\"Mb_nz_2017_17-s\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>And to save more money, we stayed in dodgy motels, or apartments with kitchenettes so that mom could cook, instead of us eating expensive overseas food (the US dollar was three Singapore dollars in the old days, and one Euro was more than SGD2).</p>\r\n<p>There was a no-popcorn rule when we went to Disneyland as kids. We didn&#39;t understand why back then but look, a tub of that stuff was USD10. Which was SGD30. Which was a small fortune in the 1970s and 1980s. So, no popcorn. And meals were Mom&#39;s fried rice in a Tupperware, freshly cooked that morning in the hotel room with a Sanyo electric hotplate cooker.</p>\r\n<p>This was the time before GPS and the Internet, mind you. So my old man drove, and my mom navigated the American continent or the Australian Outback with paper maps, and a lot of arguing. The entire family all developed the ability to adapt. After all, you can&#39;t google your way through your travel problems, or book a flight or a hotel room with your phone in those days.</p>\r\n<p>Travelling solo with my mother in the recent years is still as fun as travelling with my parents and brothers back then.

Hotels or motels must have a television. No TV? Minus four stars. TVs provide ambient sound as you go about your business.

You can talk to any stranger. Mother has the amazing ability to befriend anyone on the street. Be it singers at the Oamaru Sunday Farmers&#39; Market, baristas in a coffee shop, or an elderly German couple who are on a seven-week camper van road trip through New Zealand. Or birds.

You never know when you might need these bottles of branded hotel-sized shampoo, conditioner, body gel and body lotion. Good for the kids when they go swimming back home.

Among other trips, Mom and I have done Mount Bromo and Mount Ijen in Surabaya, trained our way from Tokyo to Hokkaido and trudged through lovely Japanese snow (including our favorite town of Higashikawa) and now we driving though the south of New Zealand. &#0160;</p>\r\n<p>From a very young age, my two younger brothers and I have been travelling with my parents and we learned to do it without joining a tour. Pa was airline staff and we got free tickets yearly but hotels and the rest were not free. So the only way to do it affordably was to rent a car and drive the brood through places like the islands of Hawaii (we covered pretty much all the islands) and the Grand Canyon.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989802b970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Mb_nz_2017_17-s\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989802b970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989802b970d-800wi\" style=\"width: 800px;\" title=\"Mb_nz_2017_17-s\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>And to save more money, we stayed in dodgy motels, or apartments with kitchenettes so that mom could cook, instead of us eating expensive overseas food (the US dollar was three Singapore dollars in the old days, and one Euro was more than SGD2).</p>\r\n<p>There was a no-popcorn rule when we went to Disneyland as kids. We didn&#39;t understand why back then but look, a tub of that stuff was USD10. Which was SGD30. Which was a small fortune in the 1970s and 1980s. So, no popcorn. And meals were Mom&#39;s fried rice in a Tupperware, freshly cooked that morning in the hotel room with a Sanyo electric hotplate cooker.</p>\r\n<p>This was the time before GPS and the Internet, mind you. So my old man drove, and my mom navigated the American continent or the Australian Outback with paper maps, and a lot of arguing. The entire family all developed the ability to adapt. After all, you can&#39;t google your way through your travel problems, or book a flight or a hotel room with your phone in those days.</p>\r\n<p>Travelling solo with my mother in the recent years is still as fun as travelling with my parents and brothers back then. She is 75 years old now, and here are some random things I learned travelling with her.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb09897fea970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Mb_nz_2017_03-s\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451b52369e201bb09897fea970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb09897fea970d-800wi\" style=\"width: 800px;\" title=\"Mb_nz_2017_03-s\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>1.

Hotels or motels must have a television. No TV? Minus four stars. TVs provide ambient sound as you go about your business.

You can talk to any stranger. Mother has the amazing ability to befriend anyone on the street.

I suspect that is where I get it from, because I talk to strangers on Twitter and my Facebook all the time.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989810f970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Mb_nz_2017_23-s\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989810f970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989810f970d-800wi\" style=\"width: 800px;\" title=\"Mb_nz_2017_23-s\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989811a970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Mb_nz_2017_25-s\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989811a970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201bb0989811a970d-800wi\" style=\"width: 800px;\" title=\"Mb_nz_2017_25-s\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201b7c8e6331e970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Mb_nz_2017_08-s\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451b52369e201b7c8e6331e970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201b7c8e6331e970b-800wi\" style=\"width: 800px;\" title=\"Mb_nz_2017_08-s\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201b8d270aac9970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Mb_nz_2017_22-s\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451b52369e201b8d270aac9970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.mrbrown.com/.a/6a00d83451b52369e201b8d270aac9970c-800wi\" style=\"width: 800px;\" title=\"Mb_nz_2017_22-s\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>8.

You never know when you might need these bottles of branded hotel-sized shampoo, conditioner, body gel and body lotion. Good for the kids when they go swimming back home. Good for the crappy hotels you may stay in, down the road, that may provide lousy unbranded toiletries. You might even want to start a shop with the collection one day.</p>\r\n<p>14.

You learn where you picked up the travel habit of washing your underwear and hanging them wherever there is a place to hang something.</p>\r\n<p>17. Just when you think she has filled her one luggage, she whips out a folding bag made of the indestructible China/Thai plastic/cardboard that can take about 45 litres of shopping.</p>\r\n<p>18. Travel with your parents while they are still mobile. They won’t be able to travel forever. Age, and two fractures in the ankle and knee from hiking in Vietnam a few years ago, can slow a mother down.

When she decides she really wants to have Indian food in the middle of nowhere in South Island, she will find it. And it will be worth the search somehow. That was some yummy Chicken Madras and Chicken Tikka Masala, man. 20. You can take the Geography and Art teacher out of the school but you can’t take the Geography and Art teacher out of your mother.

We discussed what it meant for us to adopt an animal... one child said &quot;I want to adopt a deer because I have enough space in my garden for it to stay.&quot; Another, &quot;how long will the animal come home with us for?&quot; After we all knew that it wasn&#39;t an animal that was going to come home with us we decided to adopt a Polecat.

Buy an external hard drive and clone your Mac HD with Carbon Copy Cloner. I don&#39;t say this lightly. I&#39;ve been a Mac Consultant for many years. Time Machine does a good job of archiving—saving copies of old stuff. CCC does an excellent job of backing up. You can plug a hard drive cloned with CCC into any Mac and run the Mac from that drive. All of your settings, all of your apps, everything will be there and will work. Time Machine does not do that. Restoring a complete system from Time Machine is more difficult. I have three backup hard drives that I clone with CCC. I alternate between two of the drives each week, and the third one is in a safe deposit box in my bank. I swap that out every two or three months. If you want to save a little money, you can buy bare 3.5 inch internal HDs and run them in a Voyager hard drive dock.&quot;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Gordon Lewis</strong>: &quot;I&#39;m trying hard not to reveal my biases, but what the hell: Are you really at such loose ends in Penn Yan, New York that you&#39;ve resorted to watching monster truck demos on YouTube?

I endured about four months with a serious case of GAS for the X-T2...two before the X-T2 came out, and two after. But an unusual and even somewhat surreal thing happened...it went away. Really...the GAS went away. I just kept using the X-T1, and I realized it&#39;s just fast enough and good enough for pretty much anything I ever use it for. I decided that if I <em>do</em> buy a new camera, it will only be to get in-body image stabilization (IBIS), which I could really use only because, at 60 (wow! Can&#39;t get used to that) I&#39;m not very steady-handed any more.</p>\r\n<p>I&#39;ve come to really like this camera, though, and it&#39;s currently <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1025328-REG/fujifilm_x_t1_mirrorless_digital_camera.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">on sale (closeout?) for $799</a>, which is a whopping $500 off the regular price, and an even more whop-hopping <em>$800</em> less than <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1263381-REG/fujifilm_x_t2_mirrorless_digital_camera.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">the cost of an X-T2</a>. Yes, you can buy two X-T1&#39;s and have money left over <em>versus</em> buying a new X-T2. Which you might still want to do, but I&#39;m just saying.</p>\r\n<p>A reader very kindly donated a <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1053118-REG/fujifilm_16431847_mhg_xt_large_metal_hand.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">hand grip</a> to me when he deaccessioned his own X-T1 (thanks again), and I was chagrined that I had used the camera without it for more than two years. It transforms the feel and comfort of the camera. There&#39;s one downside, which is that it makes the viewing screen a little more fiddley to flip up. But overall I like the grip very much. At least try it, like I didn&#39;t do.</p>\r\n<p>I have no doubt the X-T2 is better than the X-T1. But I find the X-T1 to be still excellent—the EVF is great, the dial-style controls suit my preferences, and the results are just fine by me. I particularly find that I use autobracketing and CH (continuous-high) quite often. Other reviewers haven&#39;t unanimously agreed, but I find the camera easy and natural to use, and I almost never encounter a situation where it can&#39;t do something I wish it could do.</p>\r\n<p>I don&#39;t think I normally recommend aging cameras highly, but I think I can make an exception here. If your finances are such that you think twice over letting go your grasp of a C-note, the savings are worth it. A stellar bargain right now.</p>\r\n<p>Well worth considering.</p>\r\n<p>I know that people all over the Internet are always hectoring you with ads and ad links, but these particular items are really worth pointing out.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><em>Mike</em></p>\r\n<p>P.S. Oh, one more thing: if you do get an X-T1, be sure you use UHS-II cards with it (such as <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1090743-REG/lexar_lsd32gcrbna10002_pro_1000x_uhs_2.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">this Lexar</a> for example). Not only is dumping the card a lot faster, but camera performance in several parameters is improved...try shooting a bracket with a UHS-I card and waiting for it to clear, then doing the same thing with a UHS-II card. <em>Much</em> snappier.</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 10px;\">Original contents copyright 2017 by Michael C.

That just is not true and I wrote about that last year.

That just is not true and I wrote about that last year. It's <a href=\"http://www.timegoesby.net/weblog/2016/09/elder-orphans-part-1-definition.html\">still worth a glance</a>.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>For today's purposes, the first paragraph above will do as a definition.</p>\r\n\r\n<a class=\"asset-img-link\"  style=\"display: inline;\" href=\"http://www.timegoesby.net/.a/6a00d8341c85cd53ef01bb098899e1970d-pi\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c85cd53ef01bb098899e1970d image-full img-responsive\" alt=\"Lastwill\" title=\"Lastwill\" src=\"http://www.timegoesby.net/.a/6a00d8341c85cd53ef01bb098899e1970d-800wi\" border=\"0\" /></a></p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong>The Witnessed Documents</strong><br />\r\nI have been remiss in not following up further on this issue.

She wondered if I have made any progress.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Happily for me, I have. I'm not finished but I've completed work on the major documents and, thanks mostly to my excellent <a href=\" http://www.johngearlaw.com/\">attorney, John Gear</a>, who pressured me in the kindliest way to get these documents done, it was not too painful.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>I now have, duly executed:</p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong>&bull;</strong> Last Will and Testament<br />\r\n<strong>&bull;</strong> Durable Power of Attorney<br />\r\n<strong>&bull;</strong> Oregon Health Information Release Authorization</p>\r\n\r\n<p>The documents, in order, (1) distribute my assets upon my death, (2) give my named agent (who, in my case, is also my heir) permission to act on my behalf in legal and financial matters, and (3) is an authorization to release my health information to my health care surrogate (same person).</p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong>POLST</strong><br />\r\nHaving recently found a new physician, I have also completed and signed a POLST, a Physicians Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment laying out what medical interventions I do and do not want in an extreme or end-of-life situation, and naming my surrogate so that medical professionals, in whatever condition I'm in, can contact her.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>A POLST is a state-specific document in the U.S., called a MOLST in some states, that can be updated and/or revoked or changed, etc. if you choose.

This means that pages can be posted that were made with images from many different sources; we are not limited to using only Tangie's work, wonderful though it is.&nbsp;</p>\r\n<p>If you are going to choose only one workshop to do this year, this is the one.&nbsp;</p>\r\n<p>There are other good opportunities as well, which I will address in another post.</p>\r\n\r\nThis is my photoset so far for Art Journal Caravan 2013:\r\n\r\n<!-- Start of Flickr Badge -->\r\n<style type=\"text/css\">\r\n#flickr_badge_source_txt {padding:0; font: 11px Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif; color:#666666;}\r\n#flickr_badge_icon {display:block !important; margin:0 !important; border: 1px solid rgb(0, 0, 0) !important;}\r\n#flickr_icon_td {padding:0 5px 0 0 !important;}\r\n.flickr_badge_image {text-align:center !important;}\r\n.flickr_badge_image img {border: 1px solid black !important;}\r\n#flickr_www {display:block; padding:0 10px 0 10px !important; font: 11px Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif !important; color:#3993ff !important;}\r\n#flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:hover,\r\n#flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:link,\r\n#flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:active,\r\n#flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:visited {text-decoration:none !important; background:inherit !important;color:#3993ff;}\r\n#flickr_badge_wrapper {background-color:#000000;border: solid 1px #000000}\r\n#flickr_badge_source {padding:0 !important; font: 11px Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif !important; color:#666666 !important;}\r\n</style>\r\n<table id=\"flickr_badge_uber_wrapper\" cellpadding=\"0\" cellspacing=\"10\" border=\"0\"><tr><td><a href=\"http://www.flickr.com\" id=\"flickr_www\">www.<strong style=\"color:#3993ff\">flick<span style=\"color:#ff1c92\">r</span></strong>.com</a><table cellpadding=\"0\" cellspacing=\"10\" border=\"0\" id=\"flickr_badge_wrapper\">\r\n<tr>\r\n<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"http://www.flickr.com/badge_code_v2.gne?count=5&display=random&size=t&layout=h&source=user_set&user=36521983286%40N01&set=72157632403018685&context=in%2Fset-72157632403018685%2F\"></script>\r\n</tr>\r\n</table>\r\n</td></tr></table>\r\n<!-- End of Flickr Badge -->\r\n",

I&#39;m aware that there are different takes on these topics; please add yours in comments and perhaps we&#39;ll get a good discussion going.</p>\r\n<p>In later posts I&#39;ll provide links to sources; there are tons of them. My tentative topic list includes vintage freebies; designer freebies; public domain images; free stock images (which I&#39;ve never used; pointers would be helpful); blog trains &amp; facebook hops; and museums &amp; libraries.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><img align=\"left\" alt=\"C\" src=\"http://dailydropcap.com/images/C-8-cap.png\" title=\"Daily Drop Cap by Jessica Hische\" /><span style=\"font-size: 36pt; font-family: &#39;arial black&#39;, &#39;avant garde&#39;;\">aution</span></p>\r\n<p>Freebies aren&#39;t entirely free. It takes time and effort to find, download, unzip and organize them. It takes hard drive space to store them. They don&#39;t always turn out to be what you expected. And really, even for the most prolific user of digital images, there is a limit to how many flowers and ribbons you can use. Or so I remind myself.</p>\r\n<p>Not everyone who offers digital freebies is experienced at making and using them. You may discover – too late – that an image isn&#39;t high enough resolution to print well. Or that, though appealing on screen, it&#39;s badly scanned or poorly made, with stray pixels and bald spots. Or it might carry some malware that your virus scanner catches, or doesn&#39;t. Even well-meaning and experienced folks can make these mistakes.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Also, some freebie sites are based in countries with different copyright laws than your own. Some individuals just aren&#39;t knowledgeable or careful about this. If it looks to you like this might not be legit, go with your instinct.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Less distressing to you, perhaps, unless like me you&#39;re compulsive about credits, is the failure of some generous people to put their names on the files they offer (or to use a code used by so many people it&#39;s difficult to keep track: I have four &quot;DD&quot;&#39;s on my credits list.) Actually, I&#39;ve encountered this problem with items I&#39;ve purchased as well.</p>\r\n<p>You might spend a morning downloading and unarchiving files only to discover that you have no idea where some of these came from. Unless you&#39;re willing to take the time to backtrack through your browser history, you&#39;ll have no way to appropriately credit what you just took the trouble to save.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Take a moment, as you are downloading, to notice and change or add to the filename if needed so that you can find the original again.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I speak from experience. And I still occasionally miss some.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><img align=\"left\" alt=\"C\" src=\"http://dailydropcap.com/images/C-9-cap.png\" title=\"Daily Drop Cap by Jessica Hische\" /><span style=\"font-family: &#39;arial black&#39;, &#39;avant garde&#39;; font-size: 36pt;\">onsideration</span>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><em>Information wants to be free</em>, they say; and if information were a sentient being it well might want just that. But it isn&#39;t. At least, not yet.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>In the meantime, I prefer the philosophy that the originator of information, be it words or images or sound, should be free to decide just how free her creations will be. Art, in any of these forms, does not magically appear out of nowhere. Someone put work into making it, and they have every right to set some limits on how their labor is used. So I believe.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>And yes, that applies to vintage, out-of-copyright images as well. Anyone who has taken on the task of scanning old family photos knows that this is a tedious and time-consuming exercise. Doing it well, at high resolution, carefully straightened and cleaned-up and made the best it can be while maintaining its orignal patina, is exacting indeed. It is labor, and the same considerations apply.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Pay attention to what the person offering the freebies says about how they may be used. Some are for <em>Personal Use</em>&#0160;only (PU); some may be used for commercial projects as well (CU). Use care here; if you plan to post to your blog that has advertisements, an income-generating site, that might be considered <em>Commercial Use</em> even if you are not directly earning income from the use of the free images. All this, of course, applies to images you purchase as well. (Disclaimer:&#0160;<em>I Am Not A Lawyer</em>)</p>\r\n<p>Some people ask that you <em>leave a little love</em> if you download their work, and here I fail the standard myself. And I&#39;m not good at the <em>please link to let me know how you use it</em> request, either. So I encourage you to do as they ask, and not as I do.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><img align=\"left\" alt=\"C\" src=\"http://dailydropcap.com/images/C-2-cap.png\" title=\"Daily Drop Cap by Jessica Hische\" /><span style=\"font-family: &#39;arial black&#39;, &#39;avant garde&#39;; font-size: 36pt;\">redit</span></p>\r\n<p>Here is where I try to make up for my failings in the softer, fuzzier <em>leaving love</em> part of my obligations. When I use someone&#39;s work, I credit it as well as I can manage; you can see how I do that on <a href=\"http://www.flickr.com/photos/sbmontana\" target=\"_self\" title=\"sbpoet @ flickr\">my flickrstream</a>. There are other, less intensive ways to do this well.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Credit is the only payment these generous people get for their work, so I try to make it as useful as possible.&#0160;I try to remember the purpose(s) of credits: to <em>acknowledge the originator</em> of the image for her work and to <em>help viewers find her and her work</em> as easily as possible. With some experience, I have decided to follow the spirit of this, which sometimes presses up against common practice.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>For instance, I rarely link to shops anymore, having discovered that designers frequently switch shops, or they do a guest spot at another shop, or they have work at several shops. Or shops, even big, established ones, vanish overnight. So I link to blogs, or, recently, Facebook pages. Both seem more persistent, and provide links to the person&#39;s shop(s) and/or freebie resources.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>But do link, if you can possibly manage it. Of course, if you name the artist/designer, interested people can Google to find them, but this doesn&#39;t always work. Or at least, isn&#39;t always clear.</p>\r\n<p>I don&#39;t provide an entire list of credits everywhere I post a page, but I always provide a link to the flickr image, so a viewer is never more than one click away from the credits. This makes it feasible for me to do this responsibly (at least I think so) without exhausting myself.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><img align=\"left\" alt=\"C\" src=\"http://dailydropcap.com/images/C-4-cap.png\" title=\"Daily Drop Cap by Jessica Hische\" /><span style=\"font-family: &#39;arial black&#39;, &#39;avant garde&#39;; font-size: 36pt;\">opyright</span></p>\r\n<p><em>Simply put:</em>&#0160;just because it&#39;s on the internet doesn&#39;t mean you can use it. <em>And</em>: if it&#39;s on the internet, someone is likely to use it. Keep both of these in mind and you&#39;ll probably be fine.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>If it&#39;s yours, and you don&#39;t want it used, don&#39;t post it online. If it&#39;s yours, and you want to put it online but contain its use, upload only at 72 dpi, which will not print well. And remember that other folks are likely doing the same.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>If it&#39;s there, and you want it, look for the owner and see if it might be available. Ask. The worst that can happen is the owner of the image will say no. Or ignore you. Same thing.</p>\r\n<p>If it&#39;s available, a freebie!, read the <em>License</em> and/or the <em>Terms of Use</em>. A <em><a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creative_Commons_licenses\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Creative Commons Licenses @ Wikipedia\">Creative Commons License</a></em>, now widely used, does not mean that anything goes; there are different licenses with different terms. Some require attribution (credit), some do not. Some allow commercial use, some do not. And some – the fun ones – allow you to <em>remix</em> or <em>adapt</em> the work; that is, to play with it as you please.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>There is a concept called <em><a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Fair Use @ Wikipedia\">Fair Use</a></em>, but I&#39;m not going to go into that because, as I said earlier, <em><a target=\"_self\" title=\"I Am Not A Lawyer\">IANAL</a></em>. If you are playing, making art for yourself, then my non-lawyerly advice is simply to avoid any possibility of copyright battles. Even if you are right, and even if (as is likely) you never get caught, getting caught can be exhausting both financially and emotionally.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>If this is a professional (or ethical, or spiritual) issue for you, my non-lawyerly advice is to consult an expert.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Have I ever taken this risk? I have. Sometimes the artist within insists. Or makes a mistake, discovers it, and goes with it anyway.</p>\r\n<p>But I still advise against it.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>In summary, be <em>careful</em>, be <em>considerate</em>, give <em>credit</em>, and respect <em>copyright</em>. Freebie does not mean abandon all fair play. It means: Here&#39;s a present! Have fun! Help others find the present, too. &#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>The drop caps that decorate this post are freebies from <span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\"><a href=\"http://www.dailydropcap.com/\" target=\"_self\">DAILY DROP CAP</a></span>.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

This makes it feasible for me to do this responsibly (at least I think so) without exhausting myself.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><img align=\"left\" alt=\"C\" src=\"http://dailydropcap.com/images/C-4-cap.png\" title=\"Daily Drop Cap by Jessica Hische\" /><span style=\"font-family: &#39;arial black&#39;, &#39;avant garde&#39;; font-size: 36pt;\">opyright</span></p>\r\n<p><em>Simply put:</em>&#0160;just because it&#39;s on the internet doesn&#39;t mean you can use it. <em>And</em>: if it&#39;s on the internet, someone is likely to use it. Keep both of these in mind and you&#39;ll probably be fine.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>If it&#39;s yours, and you don&#39;t want it used, don&#39;t post it online. If it&#39;s yours, and you want to put it online but contain its use, upload only at 72 dpi, which will not print well. And remember that other folks are likely doing the same.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>If it&#39;s there, and you want it, look for the owner and see if it might be available. Ask. The worst that can happen is the owner of the image will say no. Or ignore you. Same thing.</p>\r\n<p>If it&#39;s available, a freebie!, read the <em>License</em> and/or the <em>Terms of Use</em>. A <em><a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creative_Commons_licenses\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Creative Commons Licenses @ Wikipedia\">Creative Commons License</a></em>, now widely used, does not mean that anything goes; there are different licenses with different terms. Some require attribution (credit), some do not. Some allow commercial use, some do not. And some – the fun ones – allow you to <em>remix</em> or <em>adapt</em> the work; that is, to play with it as you please.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>There is a concept called <em><a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Fair Use @ Wikipedia\">Fair Use</a></em>, but I&#39;m not going to go into that because, as I said earlier, <em><a target=\"_self\" title=\"I Am Not A Lawyer\">IANAL</a></em>. If you are playing, making art for yourself, then my non-lawyerly advice is simply to avoid any possibility of copyright battles. Even if you are right, and even if (as is likely) you never get caught, getting caught can be exhausting both financially and emotionally.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>If this is a professional (or ethical, or spiritual) issue for you, my non-lawyerly advice is to consult an expert.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Have I ever taken this risk? I have. Sometimes the artist within insists. Or makes a mistake, discovers it, and goes with it anyway.</p>\r\n<p>But I still advise against it.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>In summary, be <em>careful</em>, be <em>considerate</em>, give <em>credit</em>, and respect <em>copyright</em>. Freebie does not mean abandon all fair play. It means: Here&#39;s a present! Have fun! Help others find the present, too. &#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>The drop caps that decorate this post are freebies from <span style=\"font-size: 11pt;\"><a href=\"http://www.dailydropcap.com/\" target=\"_self\">DAILY DROP CAP</a></span>.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

I think the hardest part of Whole30 is knowing easy, tasty things to eat. Having quick, go-to recipes is essential. Here is how I usually make breakfast while eating Whole30!</p>\r\n<p>What&#39;s great about this recipe is that you can just throw in whatever veggies or beans or sausage you have. You make as much or as little as you want by adding or subtracting eggs. This is my usual recipe, but mix it up however you want!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01b8d24d641d970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Whole30Breakfast1\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0192aab00ddf970d01b8d24d641d970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01b8d24d641d970c-800wi\" title=\"Whole30Breakfast1\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Super Easy Whole30 Breakfast, makes one or more if you add more eggs and veggies</p>\r\n<p>1 tablespoon clarified butter or approved oil</p>\r\n<p>a handful of baby spinach</p>\r\n<p>3 eggs</p>\r\n<p>1 avocado</p>\r\n<p>1 tomato</p>\r\n<p>approved salt and pepper</p>\r\n<p>&#0160; <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb0966814d970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Whole30Breakfast2\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb0966814d970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb0966814d970d-800wi\" title=\"Whole30Breakfast2\" /></a> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01b7c8c396ef970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Whole30Breakfast3\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0192aab00ddf970d01b7c8c396ef970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01b7c8c396ef970b-800wi\" title=\"Whole30Breakfast3\" /></a><br />Start by putting clarifed butter or oil in the pan and tossing in your handful of spinach. To wilt the spinach, you just have to heat it in the pan for a few minutes. Covering it can help. Make sure it stir it often that way the leaves don&#39;t get stuck to the pan. While that&#39;s cooking, put the three eggs and salt and pepper to taste in the bowl and beat them with a whisk or a fork. I like my eggs fluffy, so I whip them up a decent amount. When the spinach is ready, add the eggs and mix them together. Cook like you would normal scramble eggs.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb09668177970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Whole30Breakfast4\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb09668177970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb09668177970d-800wi\" title=\"Whole30Breakfast4\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Then you&#39;re done! I add avocado and tomatoes after it&#39;s done cooking.</p>\r\n<p>You can add approve sausage or bacon. Other veggies like potatoes, mushrooms, onions, asparagus, broccoli, or whatever you&#39;ve got!</p>",

This is my usual recipe, but mix it up however you want!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01b8d24d641d970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Whole30Breakfast1\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0192aab00ddf970d01b8d24d641d970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01b8d24d641d970c-800wi\" title=\"Whole30Breakfast1\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Super Easy Whole30 Breakfast, makes one or more if you add more eggs and veggies</p>\r\n<p>1 tablespoon clarified butter or approved oil</p>\r\n<p>a handful of baby spinach</p>\r\n<p>3 eggs</p>\r\n<p>1 avocado</p>\r\n<p>1 tomato</p>\r\n<p>approved salt and pepper</p>\r\n<p>&#0160; <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb0966814d970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Whole30Breakfast2\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb0966814d970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb0966814d970d-800wi\" title=\"Whole30Breakfast2\" /></a> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01b7c8c396ef970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Whole30Breakfast3\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0192aab00ddf970d01b7c8c396ef970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01b7c8c396ef970b-800wi\" title=\"Whole30Breakfast3\" /></a><br />Start by putting clarifed butter or oil in the pan and tossing in your handful of spinach. To wilt the spinach, you just have to heat it in the pan for a few minutes. Covering it can help. Make sure it stir it often that way the leaves don&#39;t get stuck to the pan. While that&#39;s cooking, put the three eggs and salt and pepper to taste in the bowl and beat them with a whisk or a fork. I like my eggs fluffy, so I whip them up a decent amount. When the spinach is ready, add the eggs and mix them together. Cook like you would normal scramble eggs.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb09668177970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Whole30Breakfast4\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb09668177970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.laurelandfern.com/.a/6a0192aab00ddf970d01bb09668177970d-800wi\" title=\"Whole30Breakfast4\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Then you&#39;re done! I add avocado and tomatoes after it&#39;s done cooking.</p>\r\n<p>You can add approve sausage or bacon. Other veggies like potatoes, mushrooms, onions, asparagus, broccoli, or whatever you&#39;ve got!</p>",

Even harder is finding the short stops along the way.<br /> <br /> Many genealogists have learned to use the United States Federal Census as a clue to migration. By looking at the birth location of children in a migrating family, we can often determine some of the stops a family made on their journey westward. The only challenge is that the Federal Census is only enumerated every 10 years. That&#39;s a big gap!<br /> <br /> <strong>New York&#39;s Role in Migration</strong><br /> <br /> New York played a big role in the lives of migrating families. Families who originated in New England often passed through New York, often stopping there for a few years before moving on. New York residents as well joined the migration west heading to Ohio and beyond.<br /> <br /> <strong>The Trouble with New York</strong><br /> <br /> The challenge for many researchers is that the trail goes cold in New York. Vital records for most towns in New York state didn&#39;t start until the 1870s or later. If you have New England ancestors traveling west this come as a cold shock when you&#39;re used to vital records going back to the 1600s. Researching in New York is frustrating to say the least.<br /> <br /> <strong>Your New Secret Weapon</strong><br /> <br /> All is not lost! You were on the right track when you used the U.S. Federal Census. While we may not have the advantage of New York vital records we do have the New York State Census.<br /> <br /> The New York State Census was taken for the years 1825, 1835, 1845, 1855, 1865, 1875, 1892, 1905, 1915 and 1925. Not all counties in New York have extant records for all years but for 1855-1905 the coverage is very good<br /> with the exception of a few counties.<br /> <br /> Each of the census years asks for different information, of varying value to genealogists. It&#39;s the 1855, 1865 and 1875 censuses that I want to bring your attention to. These three censuses asked for the county of birth. If<br /> your ancestors are making stops within New York before moving on, this information is invaluable in tracing their steps.</p>\r\n<p>In addition, the three censuses indicate if a person owned land and the 1855 census mentions the “years resident in the town or city”.<br /> <br /><strong> An Example in Action</strong><br /> <br /> One of my &quot;challenging&quot; families is David Allen, his wife Mariah and their five kids. Between a common surname, transcription errors and migration I was fit to be tied tracking down this family.</p>\r\n<p>Then I found them in the 1855 New York State Census. The family was living in Volney, Fulton City, Oswego County, New York. David was listed as being born Jefferson County, New York according to the 1855 census. His wife Mariah (no maiden name yet discovered) was also born in Jefferson County about 1823. Their first child Henry was born about 1844 also in Jefferson County.</p>\r\n<div class=\"photo-wrap photo-xid-6a00d8341d219b53ef01bb09871d0f970d\" id=\"photo-xid-6a00d8341d219b53ef01bb09871d0f970d\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; width: 500px;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://news.legacyfamilytree.com/.a/6a00d8341d219b53ef01bb09871d0f970d-pi\"><img alt=\"The 1855 New York State Census showing the David Allen family.

A second daughter, Eleanor, was also born in Lewis County about 1849. The last child, Charles, only 11 months old was born in Oswego County.</p>\r\n<p>This tells me I can place the family in Jefferson County, New York at least up until 1844. They are in Lewis County from about 1845 to no later than 1854. They arrive in Oswego County in time for Charles’ birth around 1854.</p>\r\n<p>But there’s another clue. Column 13 – “Years resident in this city or town” – shows that the Allens have been in Volney, Fulton City for 2 years thus changing their likely arrival date in Oswego County to 1853. Column 20 – “Owners of land” – indicates that the Allen family did not own any land.</p>\r\n<p>This one census helped to clear up where the family started and where they stopped along the way in New York on the travel west. It gave me new locations to search for new records. By 1860 the family had moved on the Manlius, LaSalle County, Illinois.</p>\r\n<p>If your family traveled west during the mid-nineteenth century be sure to check the 1855, 1865 and 1875 New York State censuses (available on Ancestry.com) to find the clues to solving their migration mysteries.</p>\r\n<p>Unfortunately the Allen family remains a bit of a mystery for me. In the 1880 US Federal Census I find a David Allen, Maria Allen and son Charles Allen of appropriate ages in Faribault, Rice County, Minnesota. But I also find in a different 1880 census a John Slocumb, Elizabeth Slocumb and a widowed Maria Allen living in Port Huron, St. Clair County, Michigan. A Michigan marriage record indicates that a Libbie Maria Allen born in Lewis County, New York married John Slocumb in 1877.

He&#39;s got a 24 pack of beer and is clearly over our age suggestion of 40 (Store policy requires you to check ID if they look under 40), but this was my first alcohol sale EVER at my first retail job EVER. I wanted to make sure I did it right, age be damned. I had my trainer shadowing me, and she agrees that I should ask for ID just to get the hang of asking for it. M will be me, OM will be the older man, T will be my trainer.</p>\r\n<p>Me: Hello sir, I need to see some ID for this alcohol..</p>\r\n<p>OM: Are you kidding me? I never get ID&#39;d when I come here.</p>\r\n<p>Me: Well I&#39;m truly sorry about the inconvenience sir, but this is my first day and I don&#39;t want to make any mistakes!</p>\r\n<p>OM: Well I don&#39;t have my ID, you stupid girl. CLEARLY you aren&#39;t doing your job correctly, because I&#39;m over 40.</p>\r\n<p>At this point, I&#39;ve gone beet red. I knew he was over 40, but I still wanted to ID him to get the hang of it, and now I have to refuse the sale. I tell him that I won&#39;t be able to sell him the alcohol, and he loses it. Starts shouting and calling me incompetent and swearing, making a huge fuss. I tell him he can leave the alcohol with me and continue the transaction, or I can suspend it and he can leave. The old man shouts louder, yelling obscenities, insulting me, and then picks up his groceries and moves to the line behind mine.</p>\r\n<p>I turn to my trainer and tell her that I&#39;ve seen this guy slide into another lane with the beer and I inform her that I had to deny the sale due to him not having ID. Seeing as though we know the guy doesn&#39;t have his ID, he cannot purchase it now, regardless of if he goes into another lane. She smiles at me and says she&#39;ll handle it. She slides onto my coworker&#39;s lane and runs the register for her. (my coworker was also a trainee and didn&#39;t know what was going on)</p>\r\n<p>T: Hello sir, are you having a good day today?</p>\r\n<p>OM: Of course not! I can&#39;t believe that dumb b**** over there wouldn&#39;t sell me this alcohol when I&#39;m OBVIOUSLY over 40.</p>\r\n<p>T: Well sir, I&#39;m afraid I&#39;m going to need to see some ID as well.</p>\r\n<p>OM: ARE YOU F****** KIDDING ME?</p>\r\n<p>T: As I understand it, my trainee asked for your ID and you said you didn&#39;t have it. In order to sell this to you, I need to see valid ID.</p>\r\n<p>OM: THAT IS REDICULOUS. I&#39;M CLEARLY OVER 40!</p>\r\n<p>T: I can see that sir, but I can also see that you do not have valid ID when asked for it.</p>\r\n<p>OM: THIS IS F****** REDICULOUS. I&#39;M GOING TO GET YOU ALL FIRED FOR THIS, HOW DARE YOU TREAT ME THIS WAY. I ALWAYS SHOP HERE AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN ID&#39;D IN MY ENTIRE TIME.</p>\r\n<p>He storms off and heads to customer service, ranting and raving about us and how he&#39;s going to get us fired for treating him so unfairly.</p>\r\n<p>We didn&#39;t get fired.</p>\r\n<p><em>--<a class=\"author may-blank id-t2_119u7j\" href=\"https://www.reddit.com/user/mildly_irrational\">mildly_irrational</a></em></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

He&#39;s got a 24 pack of beer and is clearly over our age suggestion of 40 (Store policy requires you to check ID if they look under 40), but this was my first alcohol sale EVER at my first retail job EVER. I wanted to make sure I did it right, age be damned. I had my trainer shadowing me, and she agrees that I should ask for ID just to get the hang of asking for it. M will be me, OM will be the older man, T will be my trainer.</p>\r\n<p>Me: Hello sir, I need to see some ID for this alcohol..</p>\r\n<p>OM: Are you kidding me? I never get ID&#39;d when I come here.</p>\r\n<p>Me: Well I&#39;m truly sorry about the inconvenience sir, but this is my first day and I don&#39;t want to make any mistakes!</p>\r\n<p>OM: Well I don&#39;t have my ID, you stupid girl. CLEARLY you aren&#39;t doing your job correctly, because I&#39;m over 40.</p>\r\n<p>At this point, I&#39;ve gone beet red. I knew he was over 40, but I still wanted to ID him to get the hang of it, and now I have to refuse the sale. I tell him that I won&#39;t be able to sell him the alcohol, and he loses it. Starts shouting and calling me incompetent and swearing, making a huge fuss. I tell him he can leave the alcohol with me and continue the transaction, or I can suspend it and he can leave. The old man shouts louder, yelling obscenities, insulting me, and then picks up his groceries and moves to the line behind mine.</p>\r\n<p>I turn to my trainer and tell her that I&#39;ve seen this guy slide into another lane with the beer and I inform her that I had to deny the sale due to him not having ID. Seeing as though we know the guy doesn&#39;t have his ID, he cannot purchase it now, regardless of if he goes into another lane. She smiles at me and says she&#39;ll handle it. She slides onto my coworker&#39;s lane and runs the register for her. (my coworker was also a trainee and didn&#39;t know what was going on)</p>\r\n<p>T: Hello sir, are you having a good day today?</p>\r\n<p>OM: Of course not! I can&#39;t believe that dumb b**** over there wouldn&#39;t sell me this alcohol when I&#39;m OBVIOUSLY over 40.</p>\r\n<p>T: Well sir, I&#39;m afraid I&#39;m going to need to see some ID as well.</p>\r\n<p>OM: ARE YOU F****** KIDDING ME?</p>\r\n<p>T: As I understand it, my trainee asked for your ID and you said you didn&#39;t have it. In order to sell this to you, I need to see valid ID.</p>\r\n<p>OM: THAT IS REDICULOUS. I&#39;M CLEARLY OVER 40!</p>\r\n<p>T: I can see that sir, but I can also see that you do not have valid ID when asked for it.</p>\r\n<p>OM: THIS IS F****** REDICULOUS. I&#39;M GOING TO GET YOU ALL FIRED FOR THIS, HOW DARE YOU TREAT ME THIS WAY. I ALWAYS SHOP HERE AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN ID&#39;D IN MY ENTIRE TIME.</p>\r\n<p>He storms off and heads to customer service, ranting and raving about us and how he&#39;s going to get us fired for treating him so unfairly.</p>\r\n<p>We didn&#39;t get fired.</p>\r\n<p><em>--<a class=\"author may-blank id-t2_119u7j\" href=\"https://www.reddit.com/user/mildly_irrational\">mildly_irrational</a></em></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

LOL! &#0160;It was one crazy lunch. &#0160;Luckily after all that, eating was easy. &#0160;I had lunch and then thought I wasn&#39;t going to be able to go walking. &#0160;We had a late start, but we went. &#0160;I was glad of that. Now I&#39;m going to relax until bed. &#0160;I have more stuff I need to do, but I&#39;m not doing anything!&#0160;</p>",

Más tarde, recibió una notificación del Juzgado Séptimo de Distrito con sede en Ciudad Juárez y un agente de Alfa le llevó de la tienda una bolsa de papitas, una de Fritos, una bolsa de cacahuates japoneses, un paquete de galletas Marías, dos Coca-colas, un jabón neutro, pasta y cepillo de dientes, un rastrillo (que quedó bajo custodia del grupo Alfa, pues por tratarse de un filo sólo se lo dan unos minutos para usarlo y bajo supervisión), detergente en polvo y dos rollos de papel higiénico.</p>\r\n<p>Una de sus abogadas, Silvia Rocío Delgado García, se entrevistó con él en el cubículo técnico 1, de 10:52 a 11:44 am, y luego le llevaron mole, arroz y frijoles en lo que fue su última comida en su país.</p>\r\n<p>Lo que sucedió después tomó por sorpresa al capo y a sus abogados. El Gobierno Federal determinó que ese 19 de enero se abría una ventana en el proceso legal de Guzmán. Era una ventana de unas horas en las que, según las autoridades federales, sus abogados no habían blindado al capo frente a una resolución del colegiado que abría la puerta a la extradición, pero como seguramente obtendrían un amparo en breve, para el Gobierno era “ahora o nunca”.</p>\r\n<p>Así me lo reveló una fuente de alto rango. Los abogados de Guzmán rebaten esta consideración, pues aseguran que el traslado fue contra la ley y lo impugnaron en tribunales. El jefe de los abogados de “El Chapo”, José Refugio Rodríguez, llegaba a visitarlo al penal de Juárez. Si él detectaba algo raro, buscaría proteger a su cliente. Así que el Gobierno buscó que nada se notara, que todo pareciera normal.</p>\r\n<p>El licenciado Rodríguez entró al penal. Por protocolo de seguridad le quitaron sus celulares. Era la rutina de cualquier visita. Pero en ese momento, cuando estaba incomunicado con el exterior, se activó el Código Negro: Nadie podía cambiar de área dentro del penal. Congeladas las visitas. Máxima alerta. Máxima seguridad. Todos quietos. Al “Chapo” lo movieron al cubículo técnico 1 para tomarle huellas dactilares y fotografías, salió por la aduana vehicular y fue entregado a la Policía Federal Ministerial.</p>\r\n<p>Una Suburban blindada negra sin placas lo condujo a la explanada exterior de la cárcel donde habían aterrizado dos helicópteros oficiales Blackhawk. Uno llevó al capo (el de matrícula 1065), el otro era para despistar y repeler, por si intentaban rescatarlo. Volaron al Aeropuerto Internacional de Ciudad Juárez donde lo entregaron en custodia a las autoridades de Estados Unidos. Se había completado la extradición en las últimas horas Barack Obama en el poder.</p>\r\n<p>El presidente Peña y su equipo querían entregar el capo a la administración Obama. Temían que con la llegada de Trump al día siguiente pudiera pasar algo raro. ¿Les regresaran al Chapo? ¿No se los aceptaran? ¿Les cambiaran la jugada? Todo es impredecible con el nuevo Presidente de Estados Unidos. Así que la extradición del que fue el hombre más buscado del mundo se realizó 18 horas antes de que asumiera el mando el magnate del Partido Republicano.</p>",

Más tarde, recibió una notificación del Juzgado Séptimo de Distrito con sede en Ciudad Juárez y un agente de Alfa le llevó de la tienda una bolsa de papitas, una de Fritos, una bolsa de cacahuates japoneses, un paquete de galletas Marías, dos Coca-colas, un jabón neutro, pasta y cepillo de dientes, un rastrillo (que quedó bajo custodia del grupo Alfa, pues por tratarse de un filo sólo se lo dan unos minutos para usarlo y bajo supervisión), detergente en polvo y dos rollos de papel higiénico.</p>\r\n<p>Una de sus abogadas, Silvia Rocío Delgado García, se entrevistó con él en el cubículo técnico 1, de 10:52 a 11:44 am, y luego le llevaron mole, arroz y frijoles en lo que fue su última comida en su país.</p>\r\n<p>Lo que sucedió después tomó por sorpresa al capo y a sus abogados. El Gobierno Federal determinó que ese 19 de enero se abría una ventana en el proceso legal de Guzmán. Era una ventana de unas horas en las que, según las autoridades federales, sus abogados no habían blindado al capo frente a una resolución del colegiado que abría la puerta a la extradición, pero como seguramente obtendrían un amparo en breve, para el Gobierno era “ahora o nunca”.</p>\r\n<p>Así me lo reveló una fuente de alto rango. Los abogados de Guzmán rebaten esta consideración, pues aseguran que el traslado fue contra la ley y lo impugnaron en tribunales. El jefe de los abogados de “El Chapo”, José Refugio Rodríguez, llegaba a visitarlo al penal de Juárez. Si él detectaba algo raro, buscaría proteger a su cliente. Así que el Gobierno buscó que nada se notara, que todo pareciera normal.</p>\r\n<p>El licenciado Rodríguez entró al penal. Por protocolo de seguridad le quitaron sus celulares. Era la rutina de cualquier visita. Pero en ese momento, cuando estaba incomunicado con el exterior, se activó el Código Negro: Nadie podía cambiar de área dentro del penal. Congeladas las visitas. Máxima alerta. Máxima seguridad. Todos quietos. Al “Chapo” lo movieron al cubículo técnico 1 para tomarle huellas dactilares y fotografías, salió por la aduana vehicular y fue entregado a la Policía Federal Ministerial.</p>\r\n<p>Una Suburban blindada negra sin placas lo condujo a la explanada exterior de la cárcel donde habían aterrizado dos helicópteros oficiales Blackhawk. Uno llevó al capo (el de matrícula 1065), el otro era para despistar y repeler, por si intentaban rescatarlo. Volaron al Aeropuerto Internacional de Ciudad Juárez donde lo entregaron en custodia a las autoridades de Estados Unidos. Se había completado la extradición en las últimas horas Barack Obama en el poder.</p>\r\n<p>El presidente Peña y su equipo querían entregar el capo a la administración Obama. Temían que con la llegada de Trump al día siguiente pudiera pasar algo raro. ¿Les regresaran al Chapo? ¿No se los aceptaran? ¿Les cambiaran la jugada? Todo es impredecible con el nuevo Presidente de Estados Unidos. Así que la extradición del que fue el hombre más buscado del mundo se realizó 18 horas antes de que asumiera el mando el magnate del Partido Republicano.</p>",
