By My Own Hand

Want to create your own font?
It's not that hard. You can do it in about 15 minutes.Go to this site:

Download the two forms, print them out and fill them in with a felt tip pen.

You will need to Scan them back in and upload them back to then download and install the generated TTF font.Name the font  whatever you like, I named mine "Bobs Font".

OK, I have to admit. This may seem geeky. But it gets worse.  Go into any text document, (like Notepad). set the font to your font..  Turn on Speech Recognition. Talk fast and watch your computer screen type, IN YOUR OWN HANDWRITING, everything you say.

             It's CREEPY.....

Think of all they years you wasted taking hand written notes.

Dad vs.Grandpa.

When  kids misbehave,  Dads  take away their electronics.
Grandpas take away the chargers and watch the agony while the batteries slowly go dead.

Black Widow

There was a comic book made for AOC that made  her look like super woman. I thought it would be fun to depict her as a black widow spider. Besides, I was bored. So here is a wallpaper for your desktop.
Click to make larger, then right click and set as desktop.

QR Codes

QR codes don't have to be ugly.

This first one streams live radio from WTLS in Tallassee Alabama.
This one should launch your favorite browser and bring you here.

These can be read because the specifications for the percent of fill or emptiness of a cell allows for less than perfect printing. Ditto for the contrast levels.

While the QR code can contain numeric, alpha-numeric or even Binary data, what your phone does with the text will depend on particular phone, operating system or App you use to scan the QR code.
