This morning I dug through files looking for the paperwork for the current desktop computer; I keep that material religiously but it is not showing itself in any files or usual storage places. As I searched I found a number of old files that need destruction, too many for the shredder, so it's time for the burning barrel again. This burning ritual takes place only 2-3 times a year, helpful because this much paper was never intended to go through a home personal shredder. Every time I go through this burning ritual I'm sure I've tackled all of the old stuff, only to have more turn up.
I'm going to have to review my Photoshop stuff; a couple of images I've worked with lately (contract work) haven't had the features they want. On one, it's outlining the art and pasting it onto a transparent background, on the other, it's outlining the text so it shows up against an image.
I'm watching the requests on the Freecycle listings, with the goal of filling a request one of these days. I'm also looking at some of the really old books that came from a family estate - why am I keeping them? I'll see about Amazon or eBay for listing some of them, but I suspect they'll go to the used book store where they sell old books by the foot for interior designer to stage rooms. Just because it's old doesn't mean it has any value, and I haven't opened any of these in 35 years.
