LEARNING SOMETHING NEW..........................DURING "THE PAUSE"..........

I have never professed to being a whiz on the computer side of things.   I do like to mess around a bit to see if I can mix things up as I do get a little tired of looking at the same thing all the time.  Since we are now in THE PAUSE as it is called by the younger know....staying in, social distancing, etc., and I can only rearrange my living room so many times; I have decided to work on changing my blog.

Now mind you, I have done this before and totally screwed it up so no telling what will happen this time, but it is worth a try.  I am one of those people who just keeps hitting keys until something happens and I can SELDOM remember what I have done to get me to the current spot.  

I do attempt  to read directions in "computer speak".....but since I don't speak "computer speak" I usually am at a loss at to what to do....So, you guessed it, I just keep punching  keys until something happens.  

Nothing disappeared so I guess I am in luck! :)



  1. Unfortunately I can see only the first few lines of your post. Nothing I click on causes the full post to appear.

  2. Now it's fixed and I can see your whole post! You have more computer smarts than you give yourself credit for!

  3. Hi Jo. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comment about Jingles. :( It's been 2 weeks and still feels weird without her. I thought you had stopped blogging many years ago.; it's good to see that you are still here. Seems blogger is making changes of their own yet again. Good luck with the changes you are making. Take care, Tammy

  4. You do very well on the computer. Don't sell yourself short.

  5. I think it looks lovely. Is this part of the new blogger, Jo? Whether it is or not, it looks great!

  6. It's been a while since I visited but thought I'd drop in to say HI!

    Your blog is looking great — well done to you!

    I'm adding your blog to my sidebar so I don't lose track again.

    Have a great upcoming weekend and stay safe.

    Serena ~ :)

KEYS IN THE SONG OF LIFE........................

I heard this phrase the other day in a song I was listening to.  It gave me pause to really consider this phrase as it does relate to one's life. If you really think about it, a song, is like a has a beginning....a middle....and an end.  Some songs are made up of mostly flat are many lives...boring beyond belief....never taking a risk or a chance...always fearful...always waiting for the other shoe to drop.   Other songs are sharp notes....always rise to dissonance....incomplete and incongruous with the surroundings.  Always causing a uproar....never settled...always..looking....looking.. looking. Then there is the song....composed of some flat and some sharp.....always looking for that balance....not too extreme one way or the other. Different parts of life may play different notes here....but...the goal is ALWAYS to get the life back into balance....managing gracefully. I think next time I see my friends or me


I turn 67 today.....and actually I feel better as the years accumulate.  Since I've gotten older I actually have decided that I will celebrate each day during the month of October...just being grateful for being healthy and alive.   I hope each one of you who follow this little blog of mine celebrate each day along with me.... Here are some of the things I have planned for my birthday month: 1.  Listing our current home the end of the first week in November.  We are pretty excited to be moving into a little smaller spot as it means less work and maintenance.  We just want to be able to live more and work less.  Although we still have not found our new spot.....we know it is out there.   2.  Taking a 15 day cruise on the Rhine from Amsterdam to Budapest.  We will visit 5 countries along the way.  One of the stops will be in the place I was born....Nuremberg, Germany.  My  family  left Germany right after the war...when I was quite young.  Memories are almos
