The Coloseum in Rome

One common feature was the many tour guides insisting that Christians were not killed at the coloseum. Well, perhaps the evidence is scant- we can't exactly collect DNA and correlate those killed there. Romans had a penchant for collecting victims from all strata and publicly killing them in gruesome ways so I find it hard to believe that Christians were segregated from the other victims provided for the reality show entertainment of the masses.

If the Romans had Phones

We took some underground train, got off, saw this guy on the phone and then stepped out and there was the coloseum just like that.

Maui Ke'anae Peninsula 2005

I've been to this peninsula many times and I never tire of taking photos there. This one was taken in 2005. A click will give you the full sized photo.

"Them Jews" Rings Through The Centuries

Reprehensible - Rev. Wright is simply echoing the feeling of Rome when Titus Vespasian erected the Arch of Titus after destroying Jerusalem in 70AD, fulfilling the prophecies of Daniel and Jesus. Titus is depicted receiving an award for the conquest in the carving on the side of the arch. He removed every stone of the temple to extract gold that melted during an intense fire set to kill resisting Jews inside. Jesus had predicted that not one stone would be left upon another.

It's Like Falling Down The Stairs

It's Like Falling Down The Stairs

Making a few changes in my Wordpress blog and then changing my mind set off a chain reaction I won't want to repeat - ever again.

I decided it might be better for SEO to use text URLs instead of the "out of the box" default numbered URL structure of Wordpress.

That was bad enough, but then after realizing that Twitter converts those long URLs to TinyURL format, I changed it back.

My punishment was a swift slap, or more like smackdown by Google on all my new content including that from blogger and any other site Google identified as mine. The Googlebot visits my sites just as often as before but nothing, not the smallest entry gets indexed. This, after nearly everything I wrote was indexed.

I hope this changes soon.

It seems like the change was just too much too fast but Google's response seems retaliatory since my other blogs and sites got drawn into the disfavor as well.

This experience has been much like falling down the stairs. If you don't break a bone, it still hurts for a long time and recovery seems nearly impossible for what started as an unintentional error.

Has Google Partially Sandboxed Me? Dave Keys

It seems that I'm in the sandbox. Anything I did up to a few days ago remains indexed, but ever since I changed the permalink format in my wordpress blog, everything I write there as well as any blogs where I referred to it, has been completely ignored. Not that I changed anything else like the frequency of my blogs or the relative content - just the link structure. Worse yet, I changed my mind and changed it back to numbered URLs. Now it seems I'm banned from submitting anything new until when...? I have no clue. Since it isn't just one site, but all my sites, I think Google is punishing me.

Oh yeah, I changed another site completely, making wordpress the front end. Is Google being just a little overreactive?

Temecula Web Design and SEO

Posted another wordpress entry on Dave Keys WP site. This targets SEO and web design in Temecula. The message is a call to action ie. I'm here because I want to be. Shouldn't you?

Google hasn't indexed me yet. I tweaked my sitemap about 4 times just to end up using short urls again so I could post them on Twitter unchanged.

This may prime the pump again.

The Kapalua Pic and Its Original

Editing done in Picasa's native editor. 

Step 1. Use Focal B&W filter. It removes color except in one defined spot. Nice effect that would take a little longer in Photoshop.

Step 2. Graduated Tint with no color. This is also a shortcut compared to how you'd do it in photoshop.

Step 3. Adjust "Shadows" setting in lighting controls.

Jane Grant has moved her blog from .net to .biz. would not release the domain to her. Those guys are really aggressively monetizing every aspect of their platform. I expect wannanetwork will take them down in the 3rd round.

The Be DISCOVERED FIRST blog is doing well for Temecula Web Design. This is just to give it a little more push.
