Counter ???




Think this is misleading ? Over 500 Hits a day...I don't think so.
This crazy counter used to be what I felt was accurate but now...it's just bizarre !!

None have been to my satisfaction so far....tried them all.
Contacted Clustrmaps and the problem was corrected for a short time.
Wonder how all these different IP addresses are showing up ?
Used "Sitemeter" for awhile which gives the IP Address
and that showed mostly business addresses and google images.
Go figure.

Can view this counter on side bar.

Total since 12 Oct 2009: 25,564. Previous 24hrs: 979."


Happy Weekend Everyone !
ps... no comments needed...take the week off :)

HAPPY TURKEY WEEKEND !!!

New Computer



Sorry, but I'm still out of commission due to getting a new computer.
One full week so far of headaches...hours of frustration and confusion.
Plus a lot more !!!!
Can't just transfer old stuff to new PC because a major bug damaged it
and I won't take a chance of ruining my new one.

Had to be miss smarty pants and downloaded "Adode Photoshop elements 8"
looks nothing like what I had and liked. I was happy just to cut and brighten
as before with my Adode starter program. Also had on my favorites side bar
in one location all my Adobe folders...a folder for each month.
Life was so easy then :(
This is all new to me...can't understand why the heck I don't automatically have
a new folder as before when I load pictures...it's all just in one big catalog
and can't create folders, nothing is working easy.
Hope to be back soon...my sanity depends on it !

Can you tell it's chilly ?



We've had a few nights drop to the mid 30's(1.67 c)and only one night below freezing, but mostly it's been about 42 degrees(5.56 c) at night.
Maybe it will be a warm winter like last year.
Windy and rainy lately and I STILL need to pull out my dead annuals and tidy up...so sad...maybe by Christmas. ha


Want to stop by and visit everyone's blog in the next few days, and I'll get there...
just very slowly.

Sanderlings breed in the high Arctic and winters along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts from Canada to Argentina.






Herring Gulls of the North Atlantic






Had frost one night last week...took a few picks early in the morning while freezing my tush off...neighbors must have thought I was crazy.
