How Do You Like Them Apples
Apparently, though as with most of these types of phrases there might be other explanations, 'how do you like them apples' came into existence during WWI. I can neither confirm nor deny the accuracy of that claim.
I've always though it was from 'Good Will Hunting', shows how much I know. It was a good film, I know that much.
The reason for the tasty title, which I have only just remembered (I was four paragraphs on when I wondered why I had chosen that particular one), was because while I was mowing the back garden I also harvested these from the apple tree.
I ended up spending about two and half hours up the garden, as I had neglected to keep on top of it and with the recent rain and sun, it had started to go slightly wild. Blackberry bushes and 'Bind weed' don't like to give up their newly acquired territory.
The worst part is hidden behind the log fence you can see, that's 'Bramble City'. Still, all done now and with luck, that will be the last clear out until next year.
In one of my recent posts (Dancing In The Kitchen) I mentioned that I was looking for a new theme but one that could handle a large amount of videos. I wasn't even sure if it was a 'thing', maybe all themes can.
Turns out it is a 'thing', how do I know ? That would be because I had an email from Namecheap entitled 'WordPress Video Themes Customers will Love'. Upon closer inspection, the sub-title was The 5 Best WordPress Video Themes . Now, if that isn't fortuitous, then I don't know what is.
It's a decent article and sheds some light on an area I am lacking the necessary knowledge in. The five recommended themes are all 'paid' ones but that doesn't mean they won't have a free version.
That said, I am more inclined to go for a full version this time round as this site will become my focus over the coming months (possibly years). Also, now that I know that this type of theme exists, I can search for more reviews. Good times.
I had another brief 'play' with one PC this morning and although I had no joy, I did manage to eliminate a number of possible causes for the lack of a picture and thus narrowed down the alternative routes I will have to go down to solve this teaser.
I also held back from having a look at any of the latest ones that have been welcomed into the fold. Such a good boy.
Breaking News. 'Steps' have just released their first 'single' in 23 years, how's that for keeping you up to date with all that's trending in the world.
Finally, within the realms of this post, the domain transfer has finally started moving. I'm not sure what I had done wrong previously but this morning, when I tried it again, things started moving.
No turning back now.
So, that brings you up to speed, as it were. No 'hump day' round here my friends, today, like every other, is one to be devoured and savoured, a contradiction in terms I know but hey, who cares. Have a good one.
