An addendum to the apple planting:  I never officially stratified any of the seeds, but since we always refrigerate apples before eating, all of the apple seeds I planted were stratified, by default of having been in the fridge for weeks or months anyway.

Many of my current computer problems seemed to start or escalate right after upgrading to the new OS Sierra Mist or whatever they call it.

They were forced to include the latest govenment spyware ..   :-[ :-[

Am sure you're right.  After much thought about why, oh, why, the Canon (stand alone camera) isn't recognized by the computer now is presumably because the camera isn't set for wifi, although I can, if I can ever figure out how to turn on wifi on camera.

And further, I suspect they will only recognize cameras if wi-fi is on, and that way the computer will grab every single photo on the camera, not just the one or two you'd like to UL.

Has anyone ever tried this:  hold the camera viewscreen up so that your computer lens sees only the camera's view screen.  Wouldn't you see it somewhere on your computer then?  This computer had FaceTime before, and now either an upgraded version, oh, I found it--it has Photo Booth.  So, has anyone ever tried that?  If I'm brave I might try tonight.  It would be hard to match everything up perfectly, but it's worth a try.  Update to follow.

Yowbarb Note: Record-breaking rain in the Hawaiian Islands.
The National Weather Service recorded 28.1 inches (71.3 centimeters) of rainfall in Hanalei between 2 a.m. Saturday and 2 a.m. Sunday. The record for a 24-hour period in Hanalei was set in 2012 at 28.54 inches (72.49 centimeters). "It's highly likely that the record was broken by heavy rainfall after the gauge stopped recording," said meteorologist Chevy Chevalier. The weather service is trying to figure out why the gauge stopped recording, he said.

Heavy rain to renew flash flood, mudslide threat in Hawaii through Friday
By Renee Duff, AccuWeather meteorologist

As cleanup continues following devastating flooding and mudslides last weekend, the Hawaiian Islands will face another round of heavy rainfall to end the week.

In addition to slowing recovery efforts and dampening vacation plans, the wet weather will renew the dangers of flooding, mudslides and debris flows.

A plume of moisture over the islands will bring widespread rainfall once again through Friday, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Eric Leister.

The downpours can drop a quick 1-2 inches of rain in as many hours, which may further strain storm drains that were overwhelmed during the most recent deluge.

The island of Kauai, which was hardest hit by heavy rainfall over the past weekend, will be most susceptible to renewed flooding.

Any additional rainfall will trigger a large amount of surface runoff due to the saturated soil.  However, residents and tourists across the rest of the island chain should not let their guard down, as any downpour could be heavy enough to trigger flash flooding.

Drivers should not cross flooded roadways and should instead turn around and find a safer route.

Anyone with plans to travel or hike to the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa through Friday should consider altering their plans. There will be enough cold air aloft with the storm to trigger a heavy accumulation of snow on these mountains.

A quieter weather pattern will return to Hawaii over the weekend and into early next week as the storm moves eastward and a more typical trade-wind flow resumes.

An outbreak of a mysterious skin disease called buruli ulcers is spreading around Australia, but is not believed to be transmissible from person to person.  The number of cases diagnosed recently have tripled.  It is caused by this:

Narrator of the above film says that both animals and humans can get it from contact with stagnant water, and Wikipedia says that water that has been in contact with these Oceania water bugs is suspected:

Ilyocoris cimicoides
