Well we lost another awesome actor to death but he will live on for us in the shows he left behind. I am a huge fan of The Waltons which some may see as old fashioned and hokey but I feel we need more shows like this one and actors like Ralph Waite who died Feb. 13 at the age of 85. He was John Walton Sr. on the show and the father of seven children along with his wife Olivia and his father and mother, all lived in the Virginia mountains and is the story of real life Earl Hamner. INSP brings this show and others to us every day, ones too like Dr Quinn Medicine Woman, Madlock, and Little House on the praire. All these shows gives us the feeling of family and its importance years ago and still should be today http://www.insp.com brings all that and more to our lives. A tribute was made to Ralph Waite tonight and we know his life will be continued on in all we were honored to him to bring us in television and in Life.. RIP Ralph Waite.
Well the weather outside will be changing the South is due for some snow again! I love it even with it being just a little bit or a few flurries, the excitement and beauty of the white stuff falling bring a smile to my face and all’s right in my world…. Checking out the weather websites again and all three seems to be on target but there is also http://weatherchannel.com to check also its better in my opinion on tv but for those of us online its easy to find and straight to the point. I still prefer http://www.weather.gov since they are the best and most accurate, (see previous posts) but as long as we are able to keep on top of things and be aware of whats happening that’s what is most important. So remember check out these weather sites and find the one that works best for you….. Enjoy the Snow….
Black boards most schools know it as the black board that the teachers write on with chalk. But in a lot of college courses there are now online/distance learning education courses available, on what is called the blackboard so if you are like me, can’t drive ( I am legally blind or you just think that is a neat way to learn then you will become a part of the college’s Blackboard. The classes most of the time work pretty well, has assignments, lectures, videos, contact information, discussion boards and email to keep in contact with your teacher, I been taking them online for quite a while now and for the most part I been pretty content. Usually a problem occurs such as assignments don’t submit correctly or a quiz doesn’t accept the answer you submit but for the most part Blackboard is a great way to continue your education especially in our busy lives today. So if you are thinking about continuing or getting your college degree, check out distance learning online at the college of your choice. It will be an awesome start to a new life in learning… http://www.blackboard.edu
In my class this week I have been stressing on trying to understand all the commands necessary for doing my assignments (creating a web page) and boy I found out there is a lot more to it than I ever thought!! I read the chapters, looked it up, emailed my teacher, got on the discussion board that been set up. All of this has been a help to my clueless brain” I mean I can find anything on the internet, anything in a book, I did work in a library for 27 years so something sunk in! but trying to grasp all the Ins and Outs; and where the heck they go, well not an easy task. So all you website creators all over, I salute you, not a job I want! but hey someone got to keep us internet crazy people sane and I found just the website http://www.tizag.com that will definitely help in clearing up the brain fog ! It has a great index of terms or commands or even symbols to search for and where they go and how they work, everything is very clear and straight to the point even for me, hopefully the knowledge there will help me in my class. Check it out for you will be amazed at what goes into making your favorite website SHINE!!!

I love poetry… I love the flow of it…putting the words together making it sing! I been doing it for well feels like all my life. I wrote my “first book” on Christmas eve in 1971 I think. I wanted to get it published so my mom “the great encourager”she was turned it into a lesson and showed me how to look up publishing in our phonebook, well of course no one was opened on Christmas eve (she knew that) but didn’t disappoint . Years later I still have that little book of prayers,ten commandments, poems and I remember and now have written thousands of poems, published some in books and found an awesome website for members only that my friend Dena introduced me too that gives me the outlet of writing and submitting poetry and people all over the world on this site read comment and enjoy my poems as I do theirs. wonderful place to escape to and I even had my poems published in several of the publishers books and hope for my own book one day. http://poetryandpublishing.co.uk/index.html It has definitely been a awesome outlet for me and I appreciate being a member and enjoying all the other so talented poets/writers… Another gem to have in our midst. Thanks Pat….
