Spinning Sun

The content below reminds me of the sun which is why I'm calling it, the sun.  It took a couple hours to create the images that make up content and it's not too compelling.

That's okay because one day I'll create something awesome 😎

Green Happy Face Nods Yes, Sir

If you enjoy happy faces as much as I di, you'll get a laugh out of green smiley face.  I created the pic to nod yes, sir!

Go ahead, ask him something.  He's probably all ready smiling anyway because he aims to please.

Yellow Smiley Face Goes Round and Round

I had a lot of fun creating this spinning smiley face GIF image.  I've always enjoyed smiley faces.

In fact, when I began working at Aetna Life & Casualty in 1990, I'd sit at my desk and draw smiley faces when I had to think about something.  Like everyone else, I also doodled on a scratchpad while on talking on the phone.

If you're young you're probably trying to figure out how old I am if I began working in 1990!  Well, I'll save you to the trouble.  I am 50 years young and I'm enjoying being 'mature'.  There is no substitute for maturity as it makes life so much easier in so many different areas.

Smiley Faces with Benefits After 50

I liberated the text below from a website named Vivafifty.com.  The article URL is below.

The post focuses on the benefits of being over fifty years old. It's written by Delfín Carbonell Basset who is a graduate of Duquesne University and the University of Pittsburgh.

Delfín holds a Ph.D. in Philology from Madrid and he's authored 35 books in both English and Spanish, published by McGraw-Hill, Barron’s, Larousse, Anaya and Serbal. He has taught at Pitt, F&M, Scranton and Murray St. University.

I never thought there were any real benefits of being over 50. But my editor seems to think otherwise. Recently I got chewed up by her. She accused me of being overly serious and a bit stuck up about this business of aging.

She said: Come off your high horse and quit quoting long-forgotten authors; let them rest in their dust-mite world, and consider keyboarding cheerful topics that will help us in this valley of tears that is life and aging.

Rein in your pedantic leanings and come down to the world of reality. Count your blessings, old man, and help others count theirs. Valley of tears? I said to myself. Is that what life is all about?

Perhaps she was off-color when she wrote that and not feeling like herself, but she got me thinking. How lucky I am to be over fifty, way over fifty. It is indeed a blessing, bliss on earth, and so I am going to tell you, younger folks, about the benefits of age.

And this time I promise not to quote writers of yore, never fear. For the fifty plus, the world changes. For one, men and women below that age start looking better. They walk faster, have more muscle tone, more hair, glowing skin, better teeth, better conversation and are, by far, sexier. Of course, to realize this you must go over the fifty hump. Before that we do not seem to notice the minutiae.

 The over-fifty crowd get discounts almost everywhere and that makes the under-fifty group green with envy. They must pay full price as a punishment for being younger. I get to visit museums paying half price, and sometimes even nothing. There is no need to keep the opposite sex at bay. Women do not chase me any more, not that they did that much when I was under fifty.

I do not get pinched in the subway and girls do not make eyes at me. This is a relief because I would not know what to do: Wink? Smile? Go over and start a conversation? Hide my walking stick?

Women fifty or older, have it better and easier. They do not have to hear obscene remarks about their physical attributes. In the workplace, a recent study shows, older women are sexually harassed much less than younger and better looking ones. The fear of getting pregnant by strangers is gone by now and women can let their hair down all they want, if they so desire. And if they have plenty of money.  This helps.

Another recent study shows that moneyed women attract more eligible bachelors. The over fifty mob gets to learn a lot about health facilities, doctors and medication. Younger people have no interest in exploring hospitals or making acquaintances with doctors and nurses and they miss this fun, and have to wait a few years to relish contact with the medical profession.

VLC Media Player Blinking Logo


I created this image out of several still images.  First I created the still images then I used an Android app called GIF Me Pro to create the GIF file.  It's pretty easy, but it's time consuming because you have to create the still images first, then add each image to the GIF maker application.

The VLC media player logo above reminds me of a heartbeat so I can say VLC stole my heart.

New Markdown Document

New Markdown Document Test

Change Yourself


This is a new document that I’m creating with the StackEdit software that’s actually an app in the Google for Chrome apps.

I don’t know what I’ll write about although I seem to be doing a good job so far. There isn’t much to write about as it is late and I’m getting tired already.

Maybe I should write about my SEO Content Writer blog or the Original Press Releases website.

Written with StackEdit.

Fork in the Road


Fork in the Road

I created this 'Fork in the Road' image using the mirror effect on the PicsArt.com.  It's really small as it's 75x75.

Usually I don't make images that small and to be honest, I don 't remember making this one!  I'm sure there is a bigger version of this image somewhere.  I just don't remember where.

I used my online nickname ricoramiro on Flickr like I do on most of the platforms I use on the Internet.

My Two Favorite Nieces

In the picture in this post are now Nellie Rodriguez and Priscilla Feliciano.  They are two of the many nieces and nephews I have been blessed with by my 1 brother and 5 sisters.

The picture is also posted on my Facebook ricoramiro wall.  I published it here simply to show off what a PIP camera can do.  If you haven't tried a PIP camera try one now from the Google Play store.

Orange is the New Black

Not long ago I saw the words, 'orange is the new black' on the side of a bus and I thought it would be cool to create an image.  It didn't take me long to create this gif, but it was fun.

I enjoy creating images and videos. I have to create content simply because I write on a couple blogs and I need multimedia content. The images I create are nowhere near professional status, but I am learning more and more as I go along.

You can view more pics on my DeviantArt gallery at ricoramiro.  You may download then use any of my digital art images.

Series of PIP Camera App Featuring Female Android

There are three images in this post.  All the images were created with the same PIP camera app from the Google Play store.

This is the first time I post a series of  free downloadable backgrounds and images for smartphones.  I'd been wanting to post more than one picture in an article to compare the images or to demonstrate the different effects of the same app.

Blogger Icon for App Development

This icon is for an application I'm creating and I need a place to host the content so I can link to it to use as the app icon.  It's appropriate for the reason I am creating an app which will heal me create blog posts.
