Of the many things I am going to emphasize in 2016 is making a more visual presentation online. I have a new camera, and several new apps. It is an exciting time here at the top secret Life Explained world headquarters.
Of course, it is not going to be easy. Looking back at the early days many LE posts did not even have a picture, and many of them that did have a graphic have a blank spot where the picture used to proudly sit. Still not too sure how that happened, it might have been me, it might have been Google, heck it might have been Thor god of thunder, I don't know.
And the few videos I have managed to assemble have been rickety, rough, cobbled together things with little redeeming value. Hope springs eternal, though, and I am blessed with a wonderful capacity for forgiveness. Plus, I am used to forgiving my shortcomings, it has been a hobby for a long time.
Evolution is irresistible,though. Graphics and video production are calling me. Which, I fear, spells big trouble for you, out there in Life Explained Nation. Eventually they will all end up here.
To help build your immunity, sort of a "vaccination," I have decided to take some old pictures and add a little arrow that normally signifies "play" on a video. You can adjust more slowly, and when the videos start rolling in they won't seem so bad.
Here, in one act, Life Explained, the Video*.
*This is only a test, had this been a real video the little arrow on the picture above would have take you to a far, far better place, or not.

Life Explained, Evolves, Eventually.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
