There's something about Meg Ryan

2019 - 57

Below, a scene from "When Harry Met Sally," the smash hit of 1989, which came out when Ms. Ryan was 27.

1989 - 27

Up top, a contemporary photo which accompanied the New York Times Magazine's recent extended interview with her.

Now 57, she looks so different that if you didn't know it was her, you'd be hard pressed to identify the person.

Hard to believe the passage of thirty years hasn't been enhanced by the expert ministrations of a master (or several) of plastic surgery.

Reminds me of Winona Ryder, who's had so much plastic surgery even she doesn't know who the person in the mirror is any more.

I feel your pain — Part 2:

111

Reader Rick Shrager commented (below)

on Friday's "I feel your pain" post: "I pop in every day and have for the past year or so. It might interest you to know that I have never come across a broken image link at boj. Perhaps the problem might be browser related? I use chrome on a tablet or phone exclusively."

Huh.

I immediately switched to Safari to see how my latest broken image link using Chrome on my MacBook (top, left) looked at that very moment and was gobsmacked to see it was just fine using Safari (top, right).

The image was also intact on both my iPhone and iPad running either Chrome or Safari.

Compounding the mystery is that a few hours later, the pictured broken image link up top on Chrome had spontaneously repaired itself, and it was as if it had never happened.

Absent the screen shot, it never did.

So TypePad's troubleshooters who tell me they are unable to reproduce the problem are spot-on.

It's like that on-and-off pain that's off when you finally get in to see the doctor.

I am so ready to move on from this platform to the next big thing.

Real soon now....

Beddr Sleep Tuner

22

No end of insomnia fun.

Above, Geoffrey A. Fowler of the Washington Post takes it for a spin.

From the Washington Post:

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

You apply the Beddr Sleep Tuner — a postage-stamp-size sensor — to your forehead via a medical-grade sticker.

The new FDA-listed wireless tracker will record not only your head's movements while you sleep but also oxygen levels in your blood, then try to pinpoint when you stop breathing.

This can help you understand why you might be waking up unrested and also might indicate you should visit a doctor about possible sleep apnea.
