Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

(A Slightly Different) Sunday Beauty #101

Folks, every Sunday – for two years now – I have been posting a “pretty”, or “interesting” image for your enjoyment. Friend and fellow tech blogger, Rick Robinette, has been doing basically the same thing on his blog; except his images are specifically sized/designed to be used as a Desktop background (aka “wallpaper”).

He calls his Sunday feature “Wallpaper of the Week”. And he’s up to #87  today… Take a look.

Wallpaper of the Week (#87)

Click on image to get this wallpaper. (Or browse for other great wallpapers.)

“Lazy Lions”

He really has selected some marvelous images. Not only that, but I trust his wallpapers sources to be safe, and free of spyware and viruses. Not only that, but Rick’s website, What’s On My PC.., is what I have long described as “an undiscovered gem on the Internet“, and if you enjoy technology, like learning about the best of the new Internet websites and services, what’s new in mobile, (and Freebies. Rick loves free stuff.) be sure to click, visit, and bookmark.

Loyal readers already know, he is one of my last remaining “daily reads”. (I’ve grown disinterested with the rest.)

You’ll be glad you did! (So.. click! Take a look-see.)

Let’s be safe out there, and have a Ggrreeaatt! Sunday, every one!

PS: I personally liked last week’s, and the one before, better than “Lazy Lions”.. be sure to browse his older selections when you get there!
