For quite a few years, I’ve been heading out to Narrowsburg to do laundry. The 5th Street Laundromat used to be really nice hidden gem. While the laundromat itself has taken a turn for the worse, the view is still awesome and really the only reason I keep going back.
At the edge of the parking lot there is a (mostly) dilapidated picnic table that I usually sit on, have Chinese, and watch the river while waiting on the laundry. In spring, it’s nice to see all green sprouting. For the summer, it’s a nice breezy spot with lush greens. The fall brings beautiful foliage. Once winter arrives, you cannot stand outside for long but there is a crispness in the air right off the river that perfectly matches the snow-white trees and iced-over Delaware River.
Here’s a couple shots I took a few weeks ago a pretty much the tail end of foliage season here in Sullivan County:
Last week, I ordered a couple of things from Amazon (as usual) one of them wasn’t eligible for Prime. It’s no rush I don’t need it right now anyway but it shipped via the US Postal Service and their tracking is always laughable.
Expected Delivery Date: November 4th. It’s the 6th and the package is still ~ 100 miles away so I’ll be lucky to get it tomorrow, the 7th.
Like I said I’m not in a rush to get it – it just irks me that their system isn’t designed to update the expected date when it’s clearly past that date. This is one of the reasons why the USPS is going bankrupt. UPS and FedEx always get expected delivery dates right.
Google used to have a search bar at the top and bottom of it’s search results page.
A year or so ago, Google removed the search bar at the bottom of the page. I’d bet they did all sorts of research that said not enough people used it to add the extra screen real estate but I did. The lower search bar was useful for tweaking the search terms when I didn’t find what I looking for. It disappeared.
In the recent versions of Google Chrome the search bar is completely removed on Google’s website.. The search query is now in the Omnibox (aka the address bar) of the browser itself which is a bit jarring. I’m used to editing my search query on a webpage not looking for search terms in the address. Google is blurring the line between the browser itself and webpages but I cannot understand why. I don’t see any end game for this ‘feature’.
For now I’ll have to satisfied with Ctrl L to select all text in the Omnibox and rewriting me search query.
