Tuesday, March 31st, 2009 12:17 A.M. Join Here SEE/SEA I feel compelled to write: "I see the sea, the sea sees me". But wait!---the little ditty goes I see the MOON, the moon sees me. Darn, can't use it then. So, scratch my thought from your mind!! Wrong ditty. Okay, now that I got that out of my system. Do you wanna see the sea I see? [SEAgull @ Whitecap Beach - North Padre Island, Texas] [top right: SEAport *see pelican gliding in to land on the sea?*] [bottom right: SEE the SEA glow near the SEA wall?] - - - A favorite poet of mine once wrote: Neither Out Far Nor In Deep The people along the sand All turn and look one way. They turn their back on the land. They look at the sea all day. * * * The land may vary more; But wherever the truth may be-- The water comes ashore, And the people look at the sea. - - - ART BY THE SEA [our art museum] This past Saturday-- ---and out comes my cellphone for photo taking [ummm, strictly prohibited?

FIREFOX BROWSER AD-ON Monday I was online trying to catchup with visitors visiting me and just all 'round messin' 'round with my browser. Searching for some nifty items. Now, I've told y'all about ABP [Ad Block Plus] add on for the Firefox Browser. If you don't have it, trust me, it's great. It blocks ALL advertisements. Even with Yah**!! Yay! [Tools= Add ons= Get Add ons=search for Cool Preview add on] Well, here I am, looking at Firefox's home page and clicked on the add on ---clicked on "view all add ons"....looking for the tried and tested ones that had five stars behind it. I came across this: COOL PREVIEWS And, decided to try it. Installed it, rebooted the Firefox Browser and went in to the preferences...after it's installed you will get a small icon that shows in the right hand bottom corner of your browser window. See image below: Place your cursor on the icon and click...you'll then see the small window ope

Monday, March 30th, 2009 12:31 A.M. Jeanna is hosting Fun Monday this week: T he topic will be Easter Baskets: Share a story, is it better to give or to receive, what would you like in yours? Other than Easter Sunday Sunrise Services we attended many times if the weather permitted, Easter around our home was mainly for kids. The Easter Baskets and such...toys, egg hunts and plenty of deviled eggs and egg salad for a goodly time afterward are days of yore for us. [We still hard boil eggs for the two of us, but that's about it!] So, to add a little bit, since we only do Easter baskets now for home decoration, with no purpose other than that...I'll share a thing we did for our kids when they were small and home. Keeping in mind that we were in Colorado when the kids were young...so, most Easters it was cold and wintry outside...a lot!!! The Easter Bunny would leave treats and fun INDOORS!!! Early....WAY early in the morning of Easter Sunday, I'd get up and get o

I screwed up. Blond? Ya, baby. Got it fixed tho, now. Geez I was working on the Wednesday blog for April 1st 'cause I just scanned a photo of Irene for her upcoming birthday, and clicked publish instead of save. Duh!! Have you ever done that? It's now back in the 'save as draft'. O.M.G. Friday, March 27th, 2009 4:55 A.M. Join Here Meet our newest member of the household. We named her Lily. Appropriate for Easter-time, don't you think? Her fur is a beautiful cream color and she's so soft and cuddly. I want to squeeze her and hug her!! When I laid eyes on her, I couldn't resist...I had to bring her home with me. Bud, of course, just shook his head and smiled a little, knowing all too well my fetish for cute animals.... From her cute rear end and sweet looking, bobbed tail to her rose adorned ear lobe, she's too adorable for words. Her coal black eyes emblazoned with long black eyelashes and her pink tufted nose down to her sweet
