Regarding the Hyacinths photo, there is something about the photo itself that is causing the problem. This is what Microsoft’s Window’s Photo Gallery says about it:
Occasionally, you might not be able to edit a picture or change its file properties (such as tags, ratings, or captions) using Windows Photo Gallery. If this is the case, you might see a message indicating that the file can’t be changed.
If you see such a message, you probably can’t edit the picture for one of the following reasons:
1. The picture might be read-only. If a picture is read-only, you can’t edit the picture or change its file properties. You can correct this problem by changing the picture’s read-only setting. For more information, see Change a read-only file.
2. The picture might be stored in a read-only location. If your pictures are stored on a CD, DVD, or a portable media player, for example, you might not be able to edit them or change file properties. You can correct this problem by copying the pictures you want to change to a folder on your computer.
3. The picture might be saved in an unsupported file format. Photo Gallery can’t open or edit some picture file formats, such as RAW or GIF. If you want to edit a picture that is saved in one of these file formats, you will have to convert it to a compatible file format first (JPEG is recommended). For more information, see Change a picture’s file type.
4. The picture might be saved in a file format that does not support tags, ratings, or captions. If the picture is saved in a file format that does not support tags, ratings, or captions, you can still add these properties by using Photo Gallery. However, some of these file properties will only be visible in Photo Gallery and might not appear elsewhere in Windows or on a different computer.
5. The picture might be in an offline location. If you are trying to change a picture that is stored on a network location or on removable media, it’s possible that the location is not currently connected to your computer or the media is not currently inserted in your computer. You can correct this problem by re-establishing a network connection or inserting the media that contains your picture.
6. The picture might have been deleted or moved. It’s possible that the picture was moved or deleted after you selected it for editing. When Photo Gallery tried to access the file, it was no longer there.
I don’t know how helpful that is, but I do know I can manipulate the image in Paint, and after I do, it can be changed in Windows Photo Gallery, so it must be something to do with the photo itself, even though you say it is identical to others you’ve taken. Something must be different. Diablo ex machina. 20 months ago
Students at UNLV took before and after pictures of the Earth Hour 2012 event in Las Vegas. Pretty dramatic, wouldn’t you agree? 20 months ago
I could flip it in Paint but not in Windows Photo Gallery, so I tried flipping it in various directions and saving versions. Guess you just need to keep messing around with it. 20 months ago
The Las Vegas Strip will go dark from 8:30pm to 9:30pm for Earth Hour this evening – the fourth year in a row. 20 months ago
Most of the world will be turning off the lights at 8:30pm local time on March 31, not 8pm. I may just leave them off from sunset till dawn. Will be interesting to see the various reports from around the world in the morning. 20 months ago

The past two days of learning Nonviolent Action techniques were well spent. The training was attended by participants from CA, UT and AZ as well as NV, including civil rights activists, members of the Occupy movement and environmentalists, like moi. One very kewl aspect was that our trainer turned out to be the grandson of César Chávez. 20 months ago
I’m hosting a three-hour training on Nonviolent Political Action on April 14 as part of preparations for the 99% Spring Initiative. This weekend, I’ll be trained myself in the ways of civil disobedience and peaceful protest. There’s a plan afoot to have 100,000 demonstrators trained by mid-April in anticipation of some actions in May. You’ll be seeing it on the small screen, I’m sure. 20 months ago
I had forgotten how much these events are about networking. I spoke to two of our county commissioners, one of our candidates to congress, the regional rep for the EPA and the Chair of the Moapa Band of Paiutes, got interviewed by the local newspaper, met a few old friends from campaigns past, talked to a cameraman from CNN about what it’s like being in the White House Press Corps, saw Interior Secretary Salazar, met a 17-year-old volunteer who will be voting in her first election this fall, and … oh yeah … attended the President’s speech on energy policy in the sundrenched solar fields outside Boulder City. Sunburned and satiated, I got home six hours later, looking forward to seeing it on the news tonight. 21 months ago
How out-of-the-blue cool is this? I just got a call from Washington, D.C. The White House has invited me to attend an event with POTUS tomorrow in Boulder City, NV. Wow. Very kewl, indeed.

I once had a deadline for an article, a long article, that I kept ignoring until it really was the last minute. I would have to work all night to finish it on time. I sat there, thinking it was damn near impossible and wondering what on Earth I could do to to be done with it.
Then I thought of that fairy tale about the poor cobbler and the elves that made the shoes for him overnight. That’s what I needed! Elves!
I can’t tell you exactly why or how, but just thinking about that made the burden seem lighter. I meditated for a few minutes to clear my mind, clapped my hands, and said outloud, “Bring in the elves.”
The article got done. On time. It took all night, but I don’t remember it being a painful experience at all. I’m quite sure there were elves helping out. I’m happy to loan them to you for this research paper. Namaste. 21 months ago

I had it taken at Walgreen’s, only $9.99 for two prints, and the girl who took care of it was very friendly. Nothing about this process of replacing my stolen passport is difficult; it’s just tedious. I’m going to see if I can wrap everything up before the end of the month. 21 months ago

I’m tempted to say he’ll grow out of it, but that doesn’t help you much. If it’s possible you might want to involve him in some “adult” conversation. No, not sex. I mean financial realities and the way bills get paid. I’d be tempted to try to get him to come up with a three-year or five-year vision of where he expects to be in his life and start coming up with some ways he might get there. Chances are he will not want to be living with his mom down the road. What’s his plan for exiting? It’s a scary thought for a lot of teens. Does he plan on having kids of his own in the near future? If so, how would that work out? So many questions you could ask, and if you are really interested (not nagging) he might open up. Could be worth a try. Namaste. 21 months ago

meditation can lead you to unresolved issues. Such instances could be treated as opportunities to reach closure. I would not see this as a bad thing at all—painful for the moment perhaps, but ultimately healing. Be well in your process. Namaste. 21 months ago

My excuse has been the expense, since I am uninsured and I know there will be costly tests in addition to the usual exam fee, plus I know there will end up being one or more prescriptions to fill. But I tore my ACL four weeks ago, and although it is mending nicely, it has given me reason to think I’m not as indestructible as I once was. So on Friday I called NV Health Centers and got some basic info about having an exam. Will call a couple of other clinics for comparison before making a appt, but they are nearby so even if they cost a bit more, I’ll probably go with them. Ah, the joys of aging. 21 months ago
is on its last legs. I stopped by the AT&T store yesterday and talked to a rep who told me I could get a new phone for $79.95 + a $36 upgrade fee if I signed a new contract and changed my basic rate plan. On the downside I’ll lose about 4,000 rollover minutes (that I’ll never use anyway) and be locked in for two years. On the upside I’ll have a reliable phone, save about $10 a month and get a $50 rebate (prepaid Visa Card). That means in seven months the new phone will have paid for itself. I am certainly going to consider it, although there are a lot of competitors out there offering a free phone with sign-up. This may take a bit more research. Credo has been soliciting my business forever (they’re on the Sprint network). 21 months ago
to create an account, not that I really want to (I don’t much like banks), but ever since my credit union merged with another, there are no branches here anymore. I really do have some uses for a more convenient financial institution. Chase keeps pestering me to set up an account, even though I am still upset with them for the way they unilaterally closed my account in Japan about 20 years ago when they moved from retail to private banking. I guess I can check out some of the other credit unions, too. It’s such a hassle. Just something that has to get done sooner or later. 21 months ago
