If there is something you must do and you cannot do it, you cannot do anything else.- Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic’s Notebook, 1960
I have really wanted one feature that was promised in HF17 but not delivered, ability to edit posts beyond the arbitrary one-month
expiration date. And so I wrote a post:
EditButton! - Please???🆘
I tried to be clear and respectful. I tried to recount the history and promise leading up to HF17, and tried to describe what I was looking for as well as I could.
Not only have I not received any substantive answer, but,
I discovered that I can't even edit a post older than a week! :(

Ok, so I wanna write something a little bit different than usual...I shared it on other social media yesterday and I thought of sharing it (repost) with the steemit community as well. It's sort of 'today I learned' stuff, just that it applies to yesterday:
It happened to me more than once in the past few weeks so I decided to look it up to make sure I wasn't poisoning myself.
While taking in some traces of olive oil on the tip of a teaspoon, basically 'cleaning' the tsp after lightly-'oiling' a combo-salad, I feel this stingy choke-like sensation in my throat. It leaves me breathless...
I found out that this is the effect of olecanthal, a compound from olive oil, that induces a pepper-like, itching sensation on the back of the throat. It's speculated to have effects similar to ibuprofen by binding to the TRPA1 receptor - for flavor sensing.
Others say that this sensation validates the high-quality of the
Had a visit of representatives of Microchip and Anaren. They just demonstrated solutions that makes the development of IoT applications and prototypes so easy in a few minutes. The biggest issue with IoT has been security and also prototyping mobile application for varies operating devices has always been a drag. The Anaren Atmosphere cloud development solution enables their new devices to connect to the cloud and the development is is just a drag and drop at the same time in the background a C code (with hex files), Android and iOS mobile application is development as you drag and drop.
This module is a shield whichcan connects to an arduino and has wifi for monitoring and control from anywhere in the world.
The reports states that Nearly 75 percent of all deaths in the world are attributed to just 10 causes, with the top three of these accounting for over 50 percent of all deaths. Over the last 5 years, the main causes of death in the world have remained fairly consistent.
2)Cancer (malignant neoplasms)
3)Chronic lower respiratory disease
4)Accidents (unintentional injuries)
5)Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases)
8)Influenza and pneumonia
9)Kidney disease (nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis)
He revealed to journalists on Friday afternoon, that the Death is actually the leading cause of deaths in South Afric
Science first discovered hydrogen peroxide in 1818, when a Frenchman accidentally created it as a byproduct while making barium oxide from barium salts.  Hydrogen peroxide occurs naturally in:
There was a piece in the local paper about an early test of using fibre optics to transmit data between Hitchin and Stevenage in 1977. They were working at 140 megabits, which is a typical home connection these days, but was revolutionary back then. They had to prove that optical fibre could work in a real environment.
There's a dedicated site about this bit of history. Now there's about a billion km of optical fibre connecting the world. We take it for granted, but it has changed our lives.
In 2015, I decided to officially come out of the cannabis closet and support the Canadian Cannabis Culture, by adding my voice to the growing number of Canadians who were and are open advocates for the "freeing of a herb".
Admittedly, I'm a little late coming out green, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been a huge supporter of the lifestyle for decades. I just never felt like I could safely and openly speak about it without being persecuted and charged like a felon.
In Canada it is still illegal to possess cannabis, use cannabis, grow cannabis from seed and even share information in the form of ANY printed material related to any aspect of this special life-saving plant. If you have an official medical marijuana license issued by the government, than there is some legitimacy and protection of sorts, but really, if we call a spade a spade it's still a huge erosion of civil liberties at best.

Do you remember, when you were a teenager, reading Judy Blume's books? They were the sacred tomes which, for many of us Generation X'ers, provided us the first glimpse into the world of sex that we would soon be exploring ourselves.
THIS book, just released, serves the same noble purpose for adults:
I highly recommend it!
Just released two weeks ago, it offers an incredibly entertaining and revealing impression of how varied we are as human beings where sexuality is concerned.
More succinctly, how many different ways people get off on anything you could think of, and plenty more you haven't even considered.
I can say with certainty there is no other work which discusses lava sharks, how to teach a woman to queef, and the best topical treatment for bruises, all nestled between its two covers.
Here is a photo I took recently of JW Marriott in Singapore. The 2nd photo has been resized 50%. Do you see any difference? I don’t.

I was reading a post this morning from @keithwillshine related to the current state of affairs in Canada with regards to legalization of the herb. A debate has started regarding whether or not applying for a "grower's license" warrants hiring a company to assist in obtaining a license. I started to comment on the thread, but realized that a full post was more in order to help share the first-hand information I have on the subject.
Currently in Canada, it is not easy to get a new "grower's license" and even the individuals who have "old" grower's licenses that have been grandfathered into the new program are having trouble renewing their existing licenses to grow.
As it stands now, all medical marijuana license holders were granted this constitutional right, ordered by the Supreme Court of Canada in the Allard ruling last year. So, in order to access this right, an 18 page application has to be completed.
There has been much talk about the Internet of Things (IoT) and how it will change the future of our devices and connectivity. The benefits of IoT are so many and cannot be described...but with data cost in most parts of Africa still expensive it seems difficult to expand this great technology.
The South African IoT market, which is estimated to reach in excess of $2 billion by 2020, is set to revolutionise all sectors stimulating industry growth and economic development.
Try living in a country that has 11 Official languages, then try speaking the English language; commonly referred to as

This little Bird has much to teach to the two legged earth walking humans.
One of the lessons that it carries over eagerly and with ease is that the lack of size can easily be made up for with tenacity. This can be seen when you observe the Blue Jay taking on pretty much anything that he is not pleased with. The blue Jay has been known to take direct threats to his existence head on, it has been seen attacking cats, squirrels and even humans, and he will not back down until he has reached his goal or made his point!

I have been working my way through and organizing all the photographs that I took while visiting the cities of Cadiz, Cordoba and Jerez. All of these cities are located in the south western area of Spain.
This grouping is dedicated to mosaics.
A mosaic is a piece of art that has been designed by using small pieces of materials which are held together by mortar and grout. Usually, the small pieces are all of the same material and usually they are cemented in a very precise position so that the sum of all the pieces together produce an actual picture, symbol or grand embellishment, like a frame or a border. Common materials used to make mosaics are glass, tile, stone, ceramics and bricks.
As of late, I have been writing about things that grab my attention and make an impact in my life.
Mosaics are some of those things and I must give a shout out to another Steemian, @natureofbeing!
