|Just a Couple of Things To Share|
I created the photo above by using the antique effect in IPHOTO a Mac program. I then transfered it to photoshop for, cropping, borders. sizing and saving for the web. KInd of looks like I used several textures, something new and easy.
A couple of things I would like to share with my blogging friends who may already know these google features but for those who don't, enjoy.
1. Playing around the other day on the design page of my blog, I noticed the Favicon box above the navbar, top left. I uploaded a photo just to see where it would publish. An error came up and said that it was not square. So I sized a photo square, low and behold I now have my own initials before my blog url in the address bar, instead of the blogger, orange B. Not such a big deal but just a little personal touch and easy to do.
2. Click on the Title top left of my photo (Blog Tutorial!), see where this brings you!!! I find this feature very exciting and a whole new way to view my posts. Type /view after your url, eg.
http://www.rosemaryaubut.blogspot.com/view, place your url in the link box under your title when creating your post. Finally figured out what this link box does. Actually you can place any link here to any site you wish.
If it does not work go to, new post>settings>formatting and click yes on, Enable Dynamic Views, this may be a default setting already in place for you. Next click on Site Feed near Settings tab, make sure Allow Blog Feeds, says Full. Again this could be a default setting. I love this feature and you can enjoy your blog as a sidebar along with several other options located in the teal drop down box.
Thanks, Mr. google you will always keep me on my toes, so much more to learn!

"I firmly believe that all human beings have access to extraordinary energies and powers. Judging from accounts of mystical experience, heightened creativity, or exceptional performance by athletes and artists, we harbor a greater life than we know." ~Jean Houston~
Reading a magazine recently, there was an article about connecting the right brain with the left brain. The right side known to be creative and the left analytical. The exercise seemed simple and promised to heighten one's creativity. Feeling a little low on creative energy, I would give it a try. Amazing the things one will attempt when retired and thirty seconds to kill.
Sit quietly and look side to side in a rapid horizontal motion for thirty seconds. Feeling a bit dizzy afterwards it was a excellent suggestion to sit first.
Above is the end result, not sure if the two hemispheres connected or not, if the title of the photo came from the right or left, no bells or whistles, risking all the while my eyes get stuck never to see forward again.
"Just a spiritual being in the ascending stages of the human experience climbing towards the pinnacle one step at a time!" Wow, is that a mystical statement or what!!!
Have a wonderful day!

Yes, yes, yes, it is a happy time, the cone flowers are in full bloom, throwing back their petals, raising their heads up high, rejoicing in the glory of the sun! The earth is smiling, the birds are singing and the bees intoxicated from the indulgence of sweet nectar. Yes, it is summertime. Mother Nature's, extravagant gift to Mother Earth, herself.
Children, wearing remnants of watermelon dripping from each scrumptious bite, followed by
popsicle smiles coating their quick licking little tongues.
The cone flower blooming, significant timeframe for all memories that signify we are in full blown summer.
Ah...a lazy summer afternoon, isn't that a pleasant, welcoming thought!
