Sharing is a fairly new business model, and it’s one that takes some outfits awhile to embrace. Guylty has a very significant post at her blog about Getty Images finally coming around to the 21st century in its thinking. They have changed their policy about the availability of their images. And for this blogger, it’s very welcome news.
I have had Getty Images go through my entire blog on two occasions in the last four years. The first time was early in the life of this blog. The second time was just a few months ago, which I talked about as a potential pitfall of blogging. The good news is I didn’t infringe. But if I even thought about it over the years, I had only to remember that once over I received early on to know I was not going to do something that even came close.

This was easy. Thank you, Guytly for the heads up!

As we revealed a while back, that fantastic actor Richard Armitage is the narrator for a new Shakespeare adaptation I’ve co-written with A.J. Hartley. Now Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel is available for pre-order from Audible before its release on May 20.

About two months ago I had some really odd things happening on this site, so I went on full comment moderation, That means every comment has to be approved before the public sees it. I hate it, but for now, it’s more comfortable than worrying about someone trying to hack in.
I said this as part of another post topic a few weeks ago. But since it’s created confusion for some long time readers who have never had their comments not readily appear after posting, I thought this subject should have a post of its own.
What you should see after hitting enter on your comment is verbiage to this effect: comment awaiting moderation.
How long I’m going to do this I’m not sure, but I hope you bear with me while I do.
Are we so ready for this it’s absurd? No, don’t answer that. I already know. :D
No Richard Armitage in this, but I had to commemorate for myself if nothing else.
SO got a kidney transplant. About this time of day he was conked out, and the doctor came out of surgery to tell me everything was great and SO would be up in a couple of hours.
Then the fun really started as a roller coaster ride with SO’s meds, his condition, Social Security, Medicare, and ah, those trips to the ER. In the middle of all of it, I started a business, which I thank God is doing very well.
Crazy as all of that sounds, I would do it again if it meant SO would be as he is today — returned from the near dead. And every part of the experience has made me much more grateful for everyday from here on out. It’s not knowing what’s going to happen tomorrow or even the next few hours which makes me ever conscious of basking in what is good and not getting my knickers in a twist about things that do not matter.
And there’s our friend Mike, who was so kind and gracious to donate his kidney. For that I can never give enough thanks, but I’ll keep trying.
Thank you also to all of you who have sent me so many kind words of encouragement and often at times when I needed it most. You will never know how much that means.
I just read the news. He was young! We’ll miss you Harold. You gave me years of laughs, and it meant so much.
[a scene from Stripes]
What I really loved was his great writing. Groundhog Day is a masterpiece.
No Ramis in this photo, but I love this scene and loved it and loved it. And a little trivia that no one cares about but makes me chuckle. Steven Tobolowsky is the son of the pediatrician I saw as a kid. He’s nothing like his dad who was a bit of a stuffed shirt and never laughed much less smiled. Would have loved a Ramis’ comedy about doctors now that I think of it!
All of this has me with a hankering to rev up my version of a blog award — The Do Wah Diddy Diddy.
