No I really don’t need another blog. I am happy with SOMETIMES, which is a conglomerate of photos, poems, eclectic ramblings…and contributions from other bloggers who have consented to allow their posts to be re-blogged here.
I admit that the temptation to tinker with WordPress blogs is almost over-whelming, always searching for the perfect blog. I invest each year in a Premium site, which means choosing great colors and various innovations that make a blog…well, unique…in the intended use of the word to mean “one-of-a-kind”—not “unusual,” or (god-forbid) “amazing!.” Sorry, I am not trying to be the grammar/vocabulary/Nazi….it’s just that I hate the misuse of perfectly good, precise words.

I diligently set out to learn as much as I could, though. This set-up I did in the past few days tells me that either I know more than I thought, or the things are really easier to set up. 🙂
You know more than you thought. Really, experience matters. Some things may be a bit smoother, but it’s your brain that did the heavy work. Congratulations!
I kept worrying about getting the computer hooked up with the printer…then realized I didn’t have the two machines “introduced” to each other. Remember back in the old days when that phrase was actually used? 🙂
We both remember when things were connected with wires.
I can hardly wait until everything is wireless.

at least I sort-of recall the lingo when needed. The thing I forgot was the “introduction of computer to printer.” 🙂
