This past week, there were advertisements around town for an organized hike in the mountains on Saturday. You had to be at the town hall by 8:30 to participate. We weren’t sure that we wanted to do it, but we decided to set the alarm clock for 7:30 and check out the weather and decide then. It was a little cloudy, but looked like it was going to burn off and be a wonderful day. So we went.

On Tuesday afternoon we went for a walk along the Maritime Walkway, the most picturesque part of Colindres. We got lucky, and the tide was all the way in. High tide enhances the natural beauty of the scenery by several orders of magnitude.

Applescript to Send Songs to a Shared iTunes Library

May 31, 2007 By: erik Category: Geeky 15,766 views

Note: To all of you that have found this post while searching for a way to copy songs FROM a Shared iTunes Library, read this. If you want to copy TO another iTunes library, then continue.
