Photography ~ Flickr 2016 Most Interesting, 04/30

Just in case you are wondering…

Flickr uses some sort of algorithm to determine interestingness. Here are the top 25 so far this year. I have used  Dopiaza Flickr Set Manager for each year, 2011 to present, to show the top-25 most interesting for the respective years.

There is also one for all my uploads. It has 103,206 views. I even have one for the Least Interesting Photo.

Enjoy…

Transportation ~ 2016 Ford Transit Connect LWB XLT, Update, 04/29

2016-04-29_23-05-10 VINThanks to the diligence of Mr. Robert A. Jackson, Crown Ford, Fayetteville, North Carolina, I have the VIN for the 2016 Ford Transit Connect I ordered 02/01.

The dealer did not have a VIN for my van when I arrived today. Mr. Jackson was confident he would get one for me. He did! Thank you sir!!

Sunday marks 3 months since I placed the order.

From the information I have found, my van was built 04/13. The questions are where is it now and when will it arrive at Crown Ford? Order-to-delivery was estimated to be approximately 5-months. At this point, I continue to plan for July. It is coming from Valencia , Spain [as best I can determine].

The next item I am to see is the Window Sticker–Not Yet Released. I’m checking…

UPDATE: Visible 05/07.
