Aloha all.  It has been a long time since I have done one of these distraction diaries. The reason my production has dropped off has nothing to do with meta war fatigue (well...) or the new format.  I have just been quite busy with some major changes to my personal life, all good.  

Thanks to Nurse Kelley for rattling my cage and motivating me to do one.  Apologies to all those who care on my absence from this place.

I am going to produce this diary pretty quickly, so please excuse the scarcity of words. I hope the photos are enough tonight.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
