Still just testing things in DW to see how they work. As time goes on I'm sure I'll learn the ropes. If this works you should be seeing this both on DW and on LJ, and yes, I'm keeping my LJ for now. Still working on importing my LJ entries and it says my stuff's still in the cue, or is that queue, but anyhow, wherever it is it's still being worked on.
So, let's see. I haven't spoken of Seattle's weather much as I just tend not to talk about it all that much, but it's been quite nice, not too hot or cold and seems it'll be this way for most of the week so far.
The Ginger_Biscuit and I went to a Greek restaurant, in fact, was the same one we went to for her birthday. I decided to have everything she had, although I decided to have something different than the avgolemono soup which is wonderful. It was nice to just go out and eat without friends or Alex along. We were both quite full when we got home though.
I was just looking on one of my fave CD shopping sites, CD Connection. I wanted to see what all was available by Ray Stevens. It's amazing how many best-of sets there are of his stuff out there, but with a career that's spanned decades, he's had different contracts with different record companies, so all of them want a piece of the pie since he's a recognized name. The problem, though, is if you ever want to do a comprehensive compilation of his work, cross-licensing is probably going to cause a stack of quadrophonic headaches. One way around this, and this is what Stevens did to I'm sure mixed reactions, is to just go back, pick all your tunes, and re-record the lot. So you'd get all his hits and other picks, but they'd all be current recordings and not the originals. Like I said, it's not an ideal solution but it beats having to hammer things out with who knows how many different record companies to get permission to assemble all the original tracks.
Yes, I know, I'm a nerd, I think about such things. Why? So you don't have to, that's why. LOL!
Right, so I think this should do for not only a cross-posting test thingie but an actual entry with stuff in it.

This is my first post. I really created this journal to see what Dreamwidth is like, and am intending to use this as a back-up of some sort in case Livejournal keeps on having problems with downtime and being hacked. Not sure how to import my old LJ entries or whether I can do so or not. Guess this will require research.
Oh, one thing I did not mention in my profile which I might or might not is that I'm blind. Yeppers, ain't that all amazing and inspriational, I can't see a damned thing, so some of the subject matter and musings will be coming from such a perspective, as it is a goodly part of my life and who I am. I know I've set up blogs elsewhere, mostly in blindness-specific communities, but my Livejournal is hte one I've ahd since all of 2003. That's a lot of water as well as data under the bridge. I'll hang onto my LJ for as long as I can as I'm not ready to pick up and move yet, but at least if I have to I ahve a new place to write things. Unfortunately, since I've gotten into Twitter and Facebook, no guarantee as to how often said writing will happen. I suppose I can always kill my acount if I'm not using it. We'll see.
So yeah, this seems to conclude your introductory test post thingie device. Hello, and thank you!
