Greetings, Apple readers! I would like to invite you to participate in the Daily Apple, but first, I've added a couple new features to this blog, and I want to point them out to you.
Over in the toolbar on the right, at the top is the tried and true link to the complete subject index to this whole Daily Apple, along with some suggestions for how to find exactly what you're looking for. That's been a part of this Apple for a long time, and it's now at the top of the list.
Below that is my very newest feature, the Most-Viewed Apple section, which is where I let you know which of all the Apples, past and present, got the most hits recently. Sometimes the top Apple changes daily, in which case I'll tell you yesterday's favorite. Sometimes the top Apple doesn't change for a while, and in that case I'll link to the week's favorite. At the end of the month, I'll tell you what Apples were that month's top three hits. Last month, the Loch Ness Monster and the Venus de Milo were duking it out. It was a close fight, but in the end, the Monster won out over the most famous statue in the world, with the Orcas coming in not far behind.
Below the Most-Viewed section is the more familiar Refrigerator, where you can browse through the Daily Apple by date. And finally is the list of all the categories I've used to index the Apple, which you can use to browse by subject.
Now that you're all caught up, I want to invite you to participate, once again, in a request session. I've invited requests a few times in the past, but this time instead of making it open-ended, I thought I'd give you a topic. This time, ask me about a location. It can be your favorite place in the entire world; it can be some place you've never visited but has always made you curious. It can be a country, a state, a city, a river, your old high school, the dining room, your favorite restaurant, etc. It can be a real place, or it can be mythical -- the River Styx, for example.
All I ask is that you choose something I have some chance of being able to investigate. For example, I probably won't be able to tell you much you don't already know about the soles of your tennis shoes. But I could possibly tell you something new about that really busy intersection you have to cross every day on your way to work. Or about Sri Lanka. Or Tallahassee, Florida. You get the idea.
As always, please remember that children and people from all over the world read this website, and keep your requests appropriate for all ages and respectful to everyone.
Post your request in the comment field below this entry (tell your browser to allow pop-ups), and watch this site for news of exotic locations!
