A Versatile Blogger



I’m honored!

Is that what you call me?  A Versatile Blogger! Well, that’s one way to phrase what I do around here. I’ve deliberately not defined the content, freeing myself to write about whatever strikes my fancy, or incurs my wrath.

Yes, that’s only five — I’m a rebel and a rule breaker.

Seven Random Facts About Me:

  1. I’m originally from Dorchester.
  2. I’ll have been married for twenty years this October. Crickey!

  4. And a lapidary.
  5. I’m a breast cancer survivor.

  1. I bet your garden is beautiful. Congrats on the award, you are indeed versatile. And I don’t think it was before the dark ages, just a few years back. Technology is rapid, faster than the speed of light.

  2. Lynn, thank you for the versatile blogger award. I feel honored that you find my blog worthy. Sweet! I love your random facts. You were a lapidary and a dot etcher. Fascinating! But most important – you are a cancer survivor! Yeah! I will get on to my post. Thank you again for the recognition!

  3. I have GOT to ask…what is a dot etcher?
    *hugs* and Brunch!

    • Way back in the dark ages, before computers took over the world, negatives or original art work were separated on a scanner. Yellow, Magenta, Cyan and Black films were produced at various dpi (dots per inch, sort of equates to pixels). In order to color correct those films and fix flaws, you had to manipulate the actual film by over-exposing, under-exposing, cut masks, dodge light, stipple, acid wash, in other words, etch the dots. When I was done with the film it would go to my husband who was a stripper. He’d layout the films with text and masks to configure each color layer (which could have half a dozen or more per color) resulting in four films, which then were made in to the plates used on press. All of that work is now done digitally, from taking the pics to outputting plates, making me a dinosaur.
