I have a few ideas for blog projects involving sound and music files. This is a test:
Hmmm. I would like it to play while you browse the blog. I will have to do some more research on this…
YES! This is cool. I will explain what I did later.
My oldest son and I have built the central planter box for the side yard butterfly garden. The idea is to have a three tier system after we till the ground around the base of the box.
Speaking of tilling, we are very happy with our new Troy-Bilt 26cc 4-Cycle Gas Powered Cultivator. Our two garden plots are nearly ready for planting. My son, 13 years old, had no difficulty using it. My lower back and I appreciate the light weight and ergonomic design. More reviews along with movies and pictures are coming soon.
Happy Mothers Day! to all Mothers past, present and future.
Today we went to All Seasons — we are getting pretty excited about this garden. My oldest son spent a few hours last week measuring the positions and sizes of all immovable features of property. Tonight, he and I set about creating a computer model of our property using Google Sketch-up. We gave the model enough detail to look neat without overloading our computer too much. All this model has to do is give us a rough idea of what different arrangements of raised beds, trees and shrubs will look like. So here it is, showing only those things we do not intend to move. Our next post will hopefully show the plan we decide on.
I am still very new to HTML, CSS, scripts etc…
So to start off I decided to find a simple template and modify it. This is how my website, veryhelpful.info/Blaise.Mibeck came into exisitance; I used the Zenlike1.0 Template by Node Thirty Three. I am very grateful to them.
For anything fancy I would search for “insert description of fancy thing” plus “html code” and see what solutions came up.
This has gotten me a long way rather quickly except for photo galleries. I am able to find photo gallery templates all right — but getting them to work with my photos was practically impossible for me. Ease of use is a big concern due to time limitations. Until now my solution was to make a table of thumbnail images — this would look more or less ok most of the time.
The solution was sitting on my computer. I am a fan of Picasa and it never ceases to amaze me.
1. Edit and select pictures,
2. Pull down the [Folder] menu,
3. Select [Export as HTML page...]
That simple! It all ends up in a hermetically sealed file. The HTML can then be tweaked and modified; for instance, by including the type of license I have decided on for the use and credit of the images.
