Oh my! Blame it on vacation! I forgot it was Wednesday and therefore, iPhone Wednesday. So I am adding my iPhone shot after already posting another photo (I had breakfast and a second cup of coffee and finally became cognisant of where I was in time :-) ). Here is my iPhone shot of last night's Whidbey Island delight, Penn Cove Mussels served in a light broth with shallots, garlic, lemon and cream, and eaten within sight of Penn Cove! They were absolutely wonderful and lived up to the world class culinary reputation these Puget Sound mullusks have garnered for themselves. It's my iPhone shot for this week where the image is taken and edited with the iPhone and available apps.

That was on Whidbey last night, now on to our bonus shot taken earlier in Seattle! These 26 turtles (yes, I counted :-) ) sitting on logs floating among lily pads in Greenlake were taking advantage of the last sun of the day, as it started raining soon afterward and my walk turned into a run :-). They briefly had their little islands in the sun. That was my intention this morning. I'm on Whidbey Island, a quick ferry ride north of Seattle, but we won't see the sun until later today.

That's a record!! I counted 13 there once. I have raised many a turtle like this here...you can still find the tiny green ones...and they are populating several ponds around Belgrade.

I am loving the turtles but I'm so mad about the photo thieves I could SPIT! They have Eric, Nathalie and Bob Crowe's and maybe Laurie's. I left a nasty comment but I'm sure it will be deleted. What else can we do Kim?

V - Like I mentioned, on the pirating site, click the little Google Ads logo under one of the ads. That will bring a pop-up window at the bottom of which is a check box to complain about the site, click that , then choose the " I'm comlaining because someone is usingy copyrighted work without permission. Fill out the info, and Google will handle it.
When the site has a domain name ending in .com, you can do a Google search by writing "who is *******.com?" (use th website's name). This will bring up who owns the domain or their domain company where you can look up the owner. I then send a formal "cease and desist" notice, very brief and to the point, stating the work is copyrighted, used without knowledge or permission, and they are to remove it immediately and not continue "scraping" the RSS feed to drive traffic to the ad site. This usually works very well. Most of these are from outside the USA, but they don't want to make waves. I did have one site a few years ago get their ad priviledges removed by Google for violating copyright observance, and before the guy closed up shop he renamed the site "F••• Kim!" in a lovely script typeface. ;-). These sites use robots, so dint feel too bad about it-- just check your statmetering company every few weeks and review who is making unusual use of your feed. Good Luck!
