Web Design subdivision

The place where I grew up in Michigan had street names like Newport, Viceroy, and Pall Mall. We called it the cigarette subdivision.

Dreamweaver Lane

This street in Lewes, Delaware, was right around the corner from BBEdit Boulevard and HomeSite Street. Okay, maybe not....

yeah, maybe they live in the "unfortunate songs from 1976" subdivision instead. be on the lookout for disco lady drive, lowdown lane, and squeeze box street. ;-)

Clearly I've spent way too much time in the web developer community. That awful song didn't even cross my mind as I made a U-turn to take that picture.

Gaaah, now I've got to cleanse my aural palate.

Hey, Angie! It probably will wind up on a wall, but maybe not alone. We're renovating our family room, and one idea for something to put up on the wall above the couch is a Lomo wall. Still mulling it over, but it's tempting.

I also grew up in the cigarette subdivision ---

I lived on Parliament.

Did you go to Warner?

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio


There used to be a cat
