It Was a Weekend

| February 23, 2009

Friday was pretty nice, so I painted. I’m working on the bathroom, trying to get a little paint to drag me out of the winter doldrums. The Wings won, life was good. Saturday came, and Papa and I went to the home improvement big box store. We didn’t find what we wanted, but bought a […]

Saturday is Right Around the Corner

| February 20, 2009

There are a bunch of options for bluegrass in the D this weekend.  After careful consideration, Papa and I have decieded to head down to the Huron Valley Eagles and see B0 and John and ‘em.  We’ve seen Bo sing quite a bit, but this will be the first time we’ve seen this group.  Bo […]

Twitter in Plain English

You all know by now that I’m a big fan of  Lee LeFever, and his product, explanation.  Common Craft is GOOD at explanation.  Here’s their latest: There, since you’ve learned something today, you can take the rest of the day off.

Sixty-Four or One-Twenty-eight?

| February 19, 2009

I read a few tech columns and blogs, but not enough so you would mistake me for a technology wiz, or even someone with more than basic knowledge of “How stuff works”.  Today, however, a headine in my reader caught my eye, and I didn’t mark the item as “read”, I actually read the darn […]

Have I Mentioned

| February 18, 2009

That I sometimes wander. Not just my mind, but my entire universe? “Off on a tangent,” my Mother used to say about my personality quirk. I actually looked that little word up the other day, after I went on one. I sometimes wonder how these side trips happen to me, but not for very long. […]

Is Anything Done?

| February 10, 2009

Papa and I had a wonderful time at M-in-L’s home “up North” over the weekend. We ate a little cake, and visited. We had a brief visit with S-Dad, and continued on toward home. Since we were in the neighborhood, and hungry, we ate at Zenders something we rarely do. It was nice to sit […]

Upgrade Blues

| December 15, 2008

Well, this was supposed to be the last upgrade to WordPress I ‘d ever have to do by hand.  I just noticed that a BUNCH of my photos are no longer attached to their posts.  CRAP. Give me time, I figure it out.  In the meantime, please contact me from the link, or by a […]

More Plain English

| September 20, 2008

Here’s another of Common Craft’s wonderful Videos.  This one,  Social Media in Plain English, is a pretty good take on something that can be very hard to explain. Those who have been using the web in this way for a while came to understand this without an explanation.  The rest of you can watch and […]

Plain English

| September 19, 2008

Remember Common Craft?  Here’s another of there wonderful films; this time about blogs.  I guess those of us that have internet, and poke around a little had this canned.  I wish there were a way to get all the interested, yet uninformed, people out there to check this out. I don’t have a cute tagtline […]

Common Craft, Tech Training for Granny

| August 22, 2008

I ran across a cool website a couple of months ago. It belongs to a company which makes training videos for clients, some of whom are in high tech industries. The interesting thing is; the company has several videos available to help people like me, that need a simple explanation to understand how certain things […]
