At Least It's Friday !

Well, at least it's Friday and that means I'll be heading over to AREA 51 this evening to party with my pals. I wish you guy's were with me because this week's been difficult for all of us, and I'm sure you could use a cocktail, as well. It's been an interesting week as well and I made my last post and bid farewell to AOL Journals today. It's just been a bit much to try and maintain three journals without developing callouses on my gluteus maximus (or in my case, minimus). Nevertheless, I'll trudge on, still not totally satisfied with the look of my journal. It's a youngster yet and after some braces and prep schooling, it'll be ok.

I have noticed three things that I don't like. The spellchecker has the vocabulary of a fourteen-year-old, the blog area is not wide enough and the colors are very limited. I'm sure all these things can be addressed or changed, but I have no patience for these things.

I was reading through one of my favorite magazines today, looking for something (or someone) for the pictures portion of my journal. Since I still have not figured out a way to suitably add photographs, I thought I'd just add this picture of my sweet, Rocio.

I have a tried several different methods to add the pictures, but I'm sure I figure it all out in due time. There are ways to add pictures on the sidebar, including slide shows, but nothing for the main body (no pun intended).

The end result is that I'll continue to experiment with my format and hopefully Monday will have my journal in a format that I'm happy with. It's great to see all of the new, same faces from AOL and I think we'll be fine once everyone has settled in.

I'm sorry for the tardy post as I try to post daily around 5:00 pm (EST). That's it for today, my Wile E. Coyotes. Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.

Stay Tuned !

It's probably a good thing I am not there with you...a cocktail might not mix well with my vicodin, or maybe it would be grrrreat! LOL. Have a good night.

I've been trying to figure out how to add an album of pictures in an entry. Now I don't feel so dumb! LOL! Too bad we can't do that...I always enjoyed your picture selections for the day.
Have a good day!

I don't much care for the width of the blog space, either, but all in all, I think I'll like blogger. You've done a good job, and I can't wait til the braces come off. lol
