iCloud Glitch!

I’ve been purchasing music from the iTunes store under a single account from way back when, and was excited by the iCloud’s feature allowing me to download purchased tracks on my various iDevices and Mac’s. Unfortunately, when I attempt to do so with tracks purchased prior to this year, iCloud does not recognize the purchase under the account and does not let me download, even though the track shows up in the “purchased” tab on iTunes on my Macs and on my iPods/iPads/iPhones. The support people must be referring to the purchase history seen by iCloud because they claim I did not purchase these tracks when clearly I own them, have them on some devices, and they come up on the “purchased” section of iTunes!


Would like to know if anyone else has seen this.

Japanese Beetles!


My apple trees, azaleas, and rose bushes are infested with Japanese beetles. I went to my local garden center and the fellow there imparted information on how to get rid of these “vicious invaders” with such passion that I could picture him in camouflage imparting orders on killing the Japs invading the island. I am glad that nothing bad is named for Korea, but there are enough Asian named pestilences and diseases to leave me smiling wryly whenever I hear about these Japanese beetles, the bane of gardeners in the Midwest. The Asian Carp which in another time would have been the Chinese carp if we didn’t owe them so much money is another invasive pest that gets much scorn. I can only wonder what non-Asians think when they see more Asians on TV, at their golf courses, and in their families. I think we’re just part of a long tradition going back to the Spanish Flu, and the Black Death which was blamed on the Muslims. Harmless? Not really because it associates bad feelings with a locale or nationality.

Everyone has a favorite scenario for end of the world. This takes the great singularity (the geek rapture) and takes it for a fairly straightforward ride. We’ve been here before -HAL9000, MCP, and the phone menu from the Verizon help line. The engaging scenarios play out over the planet and fit in with the cultural stereotypes of the characters -doughty Bostonian brothers, Osage warriors, technophobic Talibs,…
