This is an author's blog written by Pico Triano. 'Pico's Profile' will tell you a little about me. 'Pico's Stuff' will lead you to links and information on how you can access all my publicly available writing. 'Friends and Family' advertises websites on behalf of family and friends. The 'Friend Book Reviews' page is where I review materials written by the many friends I have made as a writer. Finally I recently added a review page for general reviews.

Pico's Week in Review June 8 - 14

Almost forget to write this week's update. In some ways this week was better than last week. My Bubblews efforts were on track until glitches with the website and my own equipment intervened. Still compared to the previous week my posting was epic.  I thought I did pretty well. I did have an additional focus setting myself up to work on Hubpages again. That took about of time. I think it will be worth it.

Eight posts for the week and they are:

The Big Guy Turns Ten

Mismatched Socks

Moncton Mourns

Mosquito Morning Mayhem

My Agenda Today

Our Beef Goes To Church

Netherlands Lays a Beating on Spain

Resting on the Sabbath

My inaugural Hubpage is a new direction for some of my writing. I found that Bubblews is great for short quick posts with a short shelf life. Hubpages can garner attention for a longer period of time. There are more options for creativity as well. I will be posting my longer more serious work there. First one is below.

Pico's Week In Review June 1 - 7

When it came to Bubblews this week I didn't get much done. I have my excuses though and I will get back on track this week. I do have a goal to average at least a post a day for an entire year. I think I'm just a bit behind pace now.

Reason I fell behind is that our router for the family Internet system died. It wasn't very simple to troubleshoot either. We tried rebooting the modem and the router. We tried bypassing the router and hooking directly into my laptop. Nothing worked. We finally ended up calling our Internet provider at the neighbour's (our phone runs through the Internet) and communicated back and forth with two way radios. Fortunately the neighbour is within range of our radios. We went through all that procedure all over again with them trying to fix the connection from their end. What finally worked was hooking the modem directly to my son's computer which is a different brand and more up to date. Once we figured out that the router was the culprit we had to wait for the weekly shopping trip to replace it.

Didn't waste the time. I did write two articles for the coming issue of Pico's Cycling - Tales of the Road. It's good to be ahead of the game on that count. We're looking forward to another topnotch issue.

Only three Bubblews articles on the list this week:

Not Worth the Money

I Can't Feel My Tongue

Last 72 Hours Have Been Crazy

Pico's Week in Review May 25 - 31

A weak week on Bubblews. Hope to do better in the coming week. It wasn't that I didn't have writing ideas and materials, I just had too many other things on my plate. Another issue was that Bubblews had quite a few glitches and it wasn't easy to post sometimes.

Here's my five titles from this week:

One of my main distractions from the above writing was getting the June issue of Pico's Cycling - Tales of the Road out into cyberspace. I'm quite happy with the results. It has shown some definite improvement and growth this month. Hopefully next month I can be a little more on top of the game and have everything ready in advance. It is a lot of work.

The fruits of those labours are right here:
