Welcome

Welcome! I’m in the process of making some stylistic changes to this site, so pardon the debris. Stay awhile. I write about life as it happens to me. I invite you to comment, because I know life is happening to you too. I also write about some of the things that hold my attention, such Read more...

Spammy Comments

I’ve heard there’s some automated software that can go around posting arcane comments on people’s sites. The links to those people’s sites are always in the comments. Whatever! Such a waste. Whoever purchases something like that is a real loser in my opinion, because most sites will have filters in place to keep the garbage Read more...

Building Sites

I spend what some may consider an inordinate amount of time on the computer. Over the years, I’ve come to realize that when I really get into something that holds my interest, I go all out. For a long time, it was art. This time around it’s the computer, and all things related to building Read more...

Making Progress with Website Development

I have learned a lot these past few months. I actually can look at CSS and tell what’s going on. I can even write it, although I’m still working on the fine tuning. Now Php, that’s a whole other horse. Everyone says it’s easy, and I believe them, but I tell you the syntax, with Read more...

Critter Creep

Ah Spring! Ah, NOT! Man, the cold went away, the sun came out, and so did the critters. All the creeping crawling ones, the scurrying furry ones, the flying, nesting, noisy ones. Ok, I don’t dislike nature’s creatures. What I do dislike is when they invade my space. I live in a house with a Read more...

My Employment Status

So far, I’ve managed to keep my head above water since I quit my job in December. It’s amazing what you can do without when you just have a few dollars to work with. I’ve cut back on a few things. I don’t eat out. I cook, and I make sure I have leftovers. I Read more...

Weaving Dreams

I quit my teaching job in December. I have been on the computer almost night and day since then, studying, practicing, trying to get better at CSS code, graphic arts, and Dreamweaver. I’m making huge progress. I have my learning style down to a science. I read, watch videos, and practice. Then I do it Read more...

Web Lessons

This constantly evolving animal cannot be tamed. There are always so many new things to learn, updated coding, and new processes. And then there are the ever looming standards, which means that some of what I learned about HTML years ago is no longer applicable. Change can be good. I’m not resistant to change. My Read more...

What I was planning to do…

Was write a post on my recent forays into managing this blog and a couple of other sites. That was before I crashed this site. *poof* it disappeared. It was already after 12am when this happened. I had planned to come in here, write a quick post, and be in bed by 12:30. (I stayed Read more...

A Month Later

I call it a month, because my official last day of school was right before Christmas Break. Well, there were those few hours I went in on the 4th of January, but that was for me. The staff was having their big ‘back-to-school’ meeting, and I didn’t have to go. Y’ay! Instead, I stayed in Read more...
