911 Day of Service and Remembrance

Hello again to both readers of this blog on this 8th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11/01.

I just want to spread the word that today marks the beginning of the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance so please check out the website and see what can be done to bring joy from the ashes.

Few WordPressers now using SpellCheck

After just reading WordPress’ remarks that few WordPress bloggers are using the SpellCheck feature, I wanted to leave a comment of explanation but couldn’t seem to do so. A message that I should Sign In appeared, yet I Was signed in. Sigh.

So here’s my excuse, or justification (however you want to look at it) for not using SpellCheck:

For months now my edit field with the task bar on top has been garbled up with icons displaying over one another. SpellCheck is one of the casualties – I can’t click on it because icons are in the way.

Have I missed using SpellCheck? You betcha!

Especially since I’m often posting on the run as I dash out the door – or it’s late, I’m fatigued, and the typo gremlins tend to mess with me most successfully then, the little dickenses.

Between that and my photos not being enlargeable in the last several months, posting on WordPress has become less enjoyable and more time consuming, sorry to say.

It seems that each time WordPress upgrades its functionality, my pc, browser, and brain have more problems posting, not less! (Probably it’s on my end though, not WP’s.)

Yes, I still adore my WordPress blog, but other hosts are ‘easier’ to publish on, check spelling, and upload images that can be viewed more closely which is especially important with Astrology charts and the chicken-scratch notations I tend to write upon them. The charts do little good if you can’t see them well enough to read them. And posting them in ‘Large’ size is Too Large.

Well, I’m not sure what to do about my WordPress spelling mistakes other than to triple-check things myself, but thanks a bunch for allowing me to vent…

Chiffonery Art 4 AbsoluteArts

As far I know, the artists’ portfolio site, AbsoluteArts, is one of the earlier websites for sharing and selling artwork worldwide.

For quite some time, I have been a member of the site and recommend it most highly to all artists including photographers.

Yet only today have I updated my portfolio with two Chiffonery Art drawings – erotic art for the 17+ers among us – if you’d like to check out ‘the ladies.’

AbsoluteArts is one of the few places I offer my drawings in their original form rather than color prints, so have yourself a browse if you wish, join if you haven’t, and set up a portfolio of your own for global exposure of your creative work (free and premium portfolios available.)

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
