june 22, 2009 - photo link test and has it stopped raining yet

my current project is seeing if this blond understands how to link a photo LOL
this gives me something to so while i await the stop of the rainiest june in nj on record! of course then it will be time to squeak in cutting the grass ha ha.

attending the grand opening gala, wearing a spring look!
well it looks as though the rain has stopped briefly and it is time to cut the grass if it has dried out some. then if i have some left over energy i might go shopping. meanwhile i'll share one of my favorite skirts with you from a couple weeks ago at a friends gala celebration of her new satellite store.

so far the only way i have found to back up everything is to slowly cut and paste it page by page into a word document. the problem has been that the photos sometimes overlap the words as one adds to the back up copy but, the text back up was the most important thing since i have the photos on disk and at flicker.

please note you can thank my friend kim huddel for showing me how to make this photo thingy work.
whew to much for this blonds brain. you can almost smell my hair burning from all this thinking. giggle giggle

June 04, 2009

as i think about the closing of yahoo 360 i don't know weather to be angry or sad.
i can't tell you the amount of time i have wasted on getting ready for the move. especially with moving the contacts ( although my contact list is VERY important so i really don't consider it a waste of time) due to the fact that no provision accept one at a time as each must be moved and invited individually. i can't believe that a well known company like yahoo couldn't do a little better job than that.
on the other hand..... we are darn lucky that they didn't just decide to shut it off one morning. at least they are giving us some time to transfer everything.

here is a question can anyone tell me the easiest way to back up all my files before the move?

anyway on a happier note i did manage to get out and about as diana for the last 3 days. yea. i am attempting to start the month out right by putting my prettiest shoe foward. or something like that. LOL and today i actually i stopped into a small competitor's store as diana just to see their new (last years move LOL) location. they haveonly meet my other self once or twice in the last 10 years or so but i think the lady knew my facial profile. but she never let on. heh he we chatted for a bit about the finacial situaltion in our field . i was wearing my longer pretty black floral skirt and lace trimmed white short sleve blouse with black flats and a black leather jacket again as it had gotten chilly again with the afternoon rain. which felt better after yesterdays humid spell. i also stopped at a few stores along the way.

thanks for letting me vent

June 02, 2009 - thank you and i am going to miss all of you at the ol' 360 site

first i want to say thank you for all who have viewed my page over the years.
when i first started i NEVER thought i 'd end up with over 12,000 views . never!
it really is interesting in that my other selves blog has only received about 340 views so it shows me just what kind of network we have had here. why yahoo wants to dispose of something that popular is beyond me!

one cool recent thing is that Mozilla's recent upgrade allows me to check spelling as i go along . yeeeaaaa to a poor speller (no it is not just my light hair LOL) this is a dream come true.

if you wish to keep in touch please tell me where you will be. at least try to set up the new yahoo site to have a connection.

meanwhile i managed to get out 11 times last month ya- hoo (no pun intended LOl) including yesterday and today for some shopping.
the interesting thing is that yesterday in walmart i had a woman who spoke broken english ask whether or not i had any children. he he. as we chatted about the blouse she was looking at. since it was 100% cotton she need one size larger that they were out of . isn't that all ways the way. :-)
yesterday it was warm enough on a weekend to get away with my white jeans skirt and pink "t" shirt along with white sandals and white purse. first it was McDonald's for some lunch then to the paper store for the Sunday newspaper ( i still must have the funnies on Sunday cause i like them and also because i all ways say at least i know it is fiction vs the rest of the paper these days that might be truth or fiction i am not sure which LOL)
next off to home depo for some beaded lamp chain to hang a laminated sign for the use instructions of a larger recently acquired rider lawn mower my dad uses, then off to target where i tried on and bought 3 white tennis type shirts ( good price at 9.99 ea vs those lands end ones at more than 2x that price over at sears.) but didn't find the pack of white sox i wanted. and finally over to Stop and Shop for a few supplies (like chocolate chip cookies and milk LOL also the new mosqueto deterent to control our unofficial sate incect the mosquetto LOLect. ) at sop and shop they are all ways friendly to me. in fact if i don't stop in for a couple of weeks they ask if all is ok? that is a nice feeling for such a big store. this and a&p are delight full stores to shop in . they are much cleaner and friendlier than most of the local Shop Right stores. which to me the local ones are starting to take on the look of big dirty unfriendly, and and rude warehouses .
to day since it cooled back off and since it was the look of the work day i wore my black longer floral skirt and a short sleeve white blouse black flats and a black purse along with back to dark panty hose.
the drape store was allready closed when i arrived at 8:30 a(closed at 7pm - what happeneed to stores that stayed open till 9pm?) so off to pay less shoes. our local one is very limited i hae never found anything in my size of 10- 10-1/2. so over to pathmark next door to look for the no nonsence brand of socks i have been looking for. here i hit paydirt. found the package of white sox i hae been looking for since drug fair was bought by walgreens and most have closed their doors.
i think we have just about every store ever invented along our local highway. LOL
hugs to all and please let me know where everyone can be contacted in the future
