Saturday stroll through the Seattle Japanese Garden

Saturday stroll through the Seattle Japanese Garden Radio Free Erik

Ended up heading down to the Seattle Japanese Garden to catch some clouds and see some trees! Like most places its cards only, and they’re not selling fish food for the fishes right now, but the koi will still come right up to wherever you’re standing to try to get a handout. Only felt a little bad not tipping the fishes for their performance.

The lilypads are right on the verge of blooming, saw one bright pink flower opened up, with the rest a day or three away. Most of the trees are still pretty green though some of the Japanese maples are starting to darken and get ready to shed their leaves for the fall. Cripes its going to be October soon, time flies eh?

After the stroll through the garden we ended up at this cute burger place called Burbs Burgers over on Montlake. Its a food truck with a large astroturfed seating area with some covered benches and umbrellaed tables. Those umbrellas came in handy since we got there just as the rains began. Super tasty smash burgers and the frys were fried to perfection! They’ve got a housemade meatless patty if veganism is your jam. Its a super swell place and I can’t wait to go back and try out the rest of their menu!

Mexico Trip Cabo – La Paz 2021

We ended up taking a mildly impromptu trip down to Mexico at the end of September. Originally the plan was to drive down the Baja peninsula to Cabo but that plan fell through and we ended up flying instead. The Cabo beaches weren’t nearly as fun as I’d imagined, but La Paz just blew me away. Anywho check out some travel photos after the jump!

Some recent photos from a day dive over to the Washington coast. Good way to get out of the house, get some sun, and listen to some podcasts.

How To: Stop Facebook From Using Your Photos For Advertising

28203055_f7ab76cdd6

Here’s something about Facebook I bet you didn’t know.
Apparently all of your uploaded photos are fair game for use by their advertisers, by default. So that image of you where you sorta drank to much at that party last week? Totally fair game to be used for those “Hot Local Singles” or “Clearasil” ads.
Totally awesome, right?
Luckily you can opt out of this “service”, though you’ll have to navigate through a treacherous maze of submenus before you can get a glimpse of the opt out page. Luckily for you I’m here to make your life easier.
Here’s the relevant asshattery quoted from the Facebook page as well as a quick tutorial to opt out of their advertising service.

Facebook occasionally pairs advertisements with relevant social actions from a user’s friends to create Facebook Ads. Facebook Ads make advertisements more interesting and more tailored to you and your friends. These respect all privacy rules. You may opt out of appearing in your friends’ Facebook Ads below.
