In my frenzied slo mo week, I did go out of the house and took a few photos of random things that struck my fancy. Also during that last week, I decided to give Internet Explorer 9 another chance, since it's going to become pretty much mandatory in the future for Win 7 users. I tried it on my travel netbook back when it was a Candidate Release, I think they called it, and it didn't play nice with Blogger, especially in handling pictures. I tried it on this desktop PC awhile back but I didn't like the layout so uninstalled it. I received an article that described customizing the layout and I'm semi-happy this time.
But I haven't tried photo handling here yet, so this is a test. (I couldn't get it to insert a Smiley graphic last night in the location I wanted.)
Here we go!
|Finally, we had wet streets, wet parking lots, wet stuff falling from |
the sky and eventually filling the roadside ditches. And now it has stopped.
|Through the screen: Christmas decorations at the Salon, |
glittering in the sunlight. They'll be coming down soon for Valentine's Day.
|It's an overcast late afternoon, but the fields have been washed|
by the rains a few days ago and there's a touch of green in the grasses.
|A tinge of pink in the eastern sky as sunset approaches|
|Shade and sun at the ministorage|
So ... photo-handling ... judgment suspended. Let's see if I adjust to it. I avoided inserting it between already entered text paragraphs -- the process that went so wrong on the netbook -- because I didn't want a fight with software tonight. I had a nice dinner at Sister's -- really cooked, not out of a box from the freezer, and we watched a couple of our favorite TV shows, and now my kitties and I want to go to bed ... without a software fight!
See you soon.
