I tell you, it doesn’t take much to get me all excited. Nooooo, not like that! I mean when I finally figure out something on this blog that I couldn’t get a handle on for the life of me before. You know I visit all of you all the time, and when I’m there, I see all of these great, great layouts and header/banners, and even little gizmos that drive me crazy with desire…and I haven’t been able to figure out how to do the simplest of things – until last week and then, ta-daaaaaaa, today! I’m like a proud mama with a newborn. Just look at that header. Woohooooo. It’s my little car that I’d made and used on WLS but had no idea how to install it over here. I fiddled and fiddled until I thought I was going explode today and then, it worked! I have Beth to thank for this. She put up a brand new header today that is just gorgeous and it had the site name on the side. So I went there and they had a little place to click that gave instructions for the simple minded like myself. What a find! Now I can do headers and that means I can use all the ones I made myself for WLS. All I have to do is resize them and bingo, done.
Next, I found this terrific little animation to go with it. See the swirling Fall leaves? Is that adorable or what? Listen, I know this is a girl thing, so guys need not put in their 2 cents worth. Lol, I’m just so darn happy!
You remember when I lost all of IE7, my webcam, and that VIA Raid thing? Well, “R” called me and we were talking about the whole mess. He said for me to shut down again and leave the computer off overnight and let the magic happen on it’s own. So I did, and the next morning, 2 days ago, I fired her up and holy smoke, everything was back and working perfectly, except for that VIA thing. That’s just gone. I looked up all the info I could find on that and apparently it keeps multiple drives all separate and clean running. Well, I have 3 hard drives and they’re doing fine without the program. Still, it seemed to be a toss up whether the program was imperative or not. Half said yes and half said no. I’ll wait it out. What’s that old saying (that actually referred to commas but will do here; I just needed to clarify that just in case): “When in doubt, leave it out”.
I wish I’d taken a picture of my turkey. It was more beautiful than straight out of a magazine, and the taste? Ooooo, yowzahhhh! It was only a small turkey of 10 lbs but that sucker is going to make a TON of soup and I can’t wait. My freezer is going to overflow with turkey/noodle, turkey/vegetable, turkey/rice, turkey/dumplings, turkey sandwiches, and then probably turkey to the neighbors and extra turkey to Sam & Lucy – can’t leave them out. Man, that’s a lot of turkey. What was I thinking?
Signing out; I’m actually hungry, so I guess you know what that means
