On The Road

Good Morning All,

This weekday feature is for Juicers who are on the road, travelling, etc. and wish to share notes, links, pictures, stories, etc. from their escapades. As the US mainland begins the end of the Earth day as we measure it, many of us rise to read about our friends and their transient locales.

So, please, speak up and share some of your adventures, observations, and sights as you explore, no matter where you are. By concentrating travel updates here, it’s easier for all to keep up-to-date on the adventures of our fellow Commentariat. And it makes finding some travel tips or ideas from 6 months ago so much easier to find…

Have at ’em, and have a safe day of travels!

 

Please keep holding on to pictures in anticipation of the new submission form – thanks!

Your Input Sought: Suggest Quotes and/or Pie Sayings

 

Folks,

As many of you have noticed, the pie filter and the random quote rotator are now in both the desktop and mobile sites, though there are still some issues we’re addressing that affect a few users. This is progress!

In bringing each of them to the fore, I’ve revealed them to have an inadequate set of messages. This is your chance to make suggestions to add to the site, and, in the case of the pie filter, I’ll be sharing all suggestions with Cleek, who invented it and helped launch it as a built-in part of the site. Since other sites also use this filter, you’ll be helping other communities, not just Balloon Juice.

You can review the current set of quotes at this link: https://www.balloon-juice.com/bjcustom/quotes-collection.json

You can review the current set of pie sayings at this link: https://www.balloon-juice.com/bjcustom/pie_strings.json

 

Quote suggestions will go through an approval process, but most-to-all pie sayings will be accepted. Finally, someone suggested using the Balloon Juice lexicon as another source for quotes. For my taste, they’re too long so I’m considering another application for the lexicon.

 

Please this nifty new form to submit your suggestions for either. One quote per submission, and we limit you to 10 per hour. I hope to add them early next week. Should the form be an issue or have an issue, please comment below. I’m not around in this post, so I won’t be here to deal with questions or reports of site issues.
