End-of-the-Month Highlights Day

New photos have been added to the Life, 2016 album. I also have a new Colorado, 2016 album but it doesn't appear on my Photos page because Google is in the processing of breaking another legacy product (Picasa) in favour of their own awful offering. The old Picasa API will not show albums just created in Google Photos because Google Photos has no toggle to set an album as "public" (This is also called "irony"). I'll have to sort out the APIs another day and recode the Photos page accordingly.
