Photo Impaired and then some

By: GardenGrrl, 7:19 AM GMT on September 29, 2007

AAARRRRRRGGHHH! Okay, I just did the upload as portrait with the rest of the Bambi and Thumper photos and found out that it still says "Photo by Gardengrrl" I may as well upload some Ansel Adams prints and perhaps A Monet or two and put my name on those. My most sincere apologies to Tanja Askani. The stuff in the following paragraph doesn't seem to work, so ignore that advice from me.
Does anyone know how I can remove these from the gallery?

Alright, I'm still fairly photo impaired, but thanks to those who have sent suggestions. I'm leaving this photo in my blog "as is" hopefully as a tutorial for someone else just learning how to post photo's. I have learned that if you upload cool photos from your hard drive to WUBA there are two ways to do it. If it is a photo you did and you want the caption on it "photo by "your name" , do the "Add Photo" option on control panel. Then you can do the other things to post it in your blog. If it's NOT a photo you took, for example the one in my blog of Bambi and Thumper that says by Gardengrrl (it's not), click on Upload Your Portrait and it won't say on the photo that your the artist and you can avoid accidently plagerizing someone elses work. (OOPs!)
So, now that I've entered the 21st century and have high speed internet, I hope to have a more illustrated blog. Take care Ya'All.

$10 Mil for Gov's House in Tx.

By: GardenGrrl, 12:26 PM GMT on September 27, 2007

I heard on the radio this morning that the State of Texas approved 10 million dollars for the remodeling of the Governors Mansion in Austin. Governor Rick Perry will live out the rest of his term at a rental property that goes for $10,000 dollars a month. All this will be financed by Texas citizens who pay taxes. I'm sure everyone from the Gulf Coast communities who has had damaged from previous years hurricanes can appreciate the need for our Governor to have to spend $10 million dollars on the mansion and $10,000 a month for a place to stay. Is it me or does this seem excessive or something.....?

North Texas Autumn

By: GardenGrrl, 8:02 AM GMT on September 21, 2007

I'm not sure there is actually an autumn in North Texas. It just goes from green to brown overnight after the first big freeze. Prior to that the weather is nice this time of year. Not too hot. Just right. The garden has a few bare spots from the early flowers packing it in. A few plants re-seeded and are going for the next round before frost. The spring sunflowers were 6feet tall before they flowered. The new batch that re-seeded are about 3ft and flowering now. The sweet basil has found it's way from the container to the sunflowers and main garden. Should have more than enough to cook with until the frost gets them. The red-flowered and blue flowered sage "bushes" are looking quite nice together with some multi-colored lantana peaking out from underneath. One of these days I'll learn how to post pictures in my blog. Have a great week and thanks for visiting. (Hi BG from TD)

Arachnids United

By: GardenGrrl, 7:22 AM GMT on September 14, 2007

There has been a giant (big enough to span a pond) spider web in a North Texas park that had people around the world baffled as to what kind of spider did it. The verdict according to the many "oligist's" that have been studying it is that hundreds of spiders of many different species all worked together to make one giant communal spider web! Because of all the rain this summer there has been a glut of insects. The spiders decided to cooperate rather than compete to catch all that extra food flying around. So they connected all their webs. I hope the big tree spiders by my house don't get that memo.

Grateful Today

By: GardenGrrl, 5:26 AM GMT on September 06, 2007

With the hurricanes in Central America and the flooding in the Midwest I sit here and count my blessings. The things that annoy me right now are so tiny compared to the troubles others are going through. So, today instead of complaining I would like to give thanks to the Great Being for all that is good in my life. To whoever reads this, I hope you find your own life full of blessings and gratitude. Or at least be blessed with a sense of humor to lighten your load. Today I am gratefull for Laughter, all the "stuff" I have and someone to share it with. Peace :)
