I Need a Little Help from My Friends

Well, Kaptain Klutz strikes again! I thought I entered this picture of my grandson in the I Love It Here! photo contest about summer life in NH. That was back in June, but I just found out the entry never made it there. I just entered again, but there's a popular vote portion and my entry is about a month behind the others.

I'd love to win the Dream Vacation, but mostly as a test of our family's social network connections, I'd like to ask for your help in the voting. No ballot stuffing desired. Just go to
Use the drop down menu and go to At the Hampton Beach Sand Sculpturing Competition. Then look at the pictures and vote your conscience. Then please post this link to your FB friends or other social networks, Tweet it, or pass it on via passenger pigeon.

For what it's worth, it really IS more of a social networking experiment than an attempt to win, because the popular vote may get the attention of the judges, but the final decision will be made them them using the contest criteria.

Even if you don't vote or pass it on, wish me luck.

LG Accolade's Totally Useless Feature

After looking over the free phones available to me on my calling plan, I settled on the LG Accolade. I've had it for a few months. It meets my needs nicely and I'm satisfied with the over all performance, but for some odd reason, someone thought it would be a good idea to enable the cell phone's camera to work even if the flip phone is closed. The problem is that the buttons on the side of the phone are sensitive. As a result, every few days I have to go to my photos and delete 10 or 12 pictures of the inside of my pocket. Heaven forbid that I have a hole in the pocket. I might accidentally sext someone.
