Hello – Testing!

Hi Everyone! 

Trying out the “Gutenberg”.
Hmm!!!! Is all I have to say right now.
Finally found how to keep lines closer when I enter. Before you pressed enter and you had a full line of empty space. Then I would go to HTML and delete it there.
That part so far is good for me.

When it comes to clip art, photos, etc, it’s really making my brain think, read, saying to myself “are they bonkers” on these changes.

But never fear I will get it sooner or later.

Have a great day! Hope

Hello Penguins!

penguin-listening-to-musicHi Everyone!

I’m writing about the bird, not the hockey team.

Did you know penguins have their own holiday?
April 25th mark it on your calendar.

The information is from; TheSpruce.com.
There are only eighteen (18) species of penguins. Only five (5) species art not endangered, vulnerable, threatened according to BirdLife International (BirdLife.org).

Large or Great penguins are King and Emperor.
Brushed tail penguin medium size have bristle, brushy tail.
Crested penguins all have some type of bushy eyebrow crests.

Penguins are one of the skilled birds no one thinks about as far as I know.
Ostriches are another bird that is skilled also, but no one thinks that of them also.

Macaroni PenguinPenguins according to The Spruce.com they powerful flippers and streamlined bodies that make them accomplished swimmers. Fastest swimming and deepest diving birds of any kind and stay underwater for up to 20 minutes at a time. This is a Macaroni Penguin.

ostrichOstriches according to Live Science.com they are the largest and heaviest living bird. They are flightless birds but are built for running. They can sprint up to 43 mph and stay at 31 mph as a steady speed.

Pretty interesting stuff!

Hello Weather!

See the source imageHi Everyone!

So how is your weather where ever you are?

See the source imageThis has been a better rough summer here in Chicago, IL U.S.A.

I couldn’t believe what came out of my mouth a couple of weeks ago to my neighbor and she agreed. “I would rather have this weather than snow and ice for the winter”. See the source imageCan you believe I said that? I am still stunned I said that.

We had a tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny break and THEN the heat, humidity, feet melting, sticking to the ground.

Hello National Webmistress Day!

retro pop art womenHi Everyone!

WOW! I didn’t know there was such a day. You maybe asking what is this National Webmistress Day?

National WebMistress Day recognizes women in web development on August 26. 

A WebMistress is a woman who designs, develops, markets and maintains websites.woman_computer_work_station_1600_clr_7855 While the term has existed since the mid-1990s, it officially entered technology’s lexicon in June of 1995 when Kat Valentine secured the domain name WebMistress.com and began web development under the job title WebMistress.  The previously existing WebMaster had arrived on the scene as early as 1986 according to various classified ads.

super-business-woman-free-clip-art-830x1280There are now thousands of women working under the job title WebMistress, but the word still raises eyebrows more than 20 years later.  WebMistress has a place not only on the résumé but is a legitimate job title in the business world.  As part of National WebMistress Day, take the time to acknowledge the women in web development to promote the job title in the business and lose the stigma associated with the word.


Use #nationalWEBMISTRESSday on social media to show that you are a woman web designer and proud to be working under the title WebMistress.  Visit www.nationalwebmistressday.com for more information. 


Kat Valentine founded National WebMistress Day in June of 2016 to promote women in web design and celebrate the legitimacy of the job title. The Registrar at National Day Calendar approved the day.

Hello Words!

Hi Everyone! See the source image

Did you know that eight hundred and fifty (850) words were added to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary this year? Image result for clip art merriam-webster

See the source imageWOW! A few new words below. For more information please go to

bookworm 2 850 WORDS added!!!!
I’ll be reading from morning to night. I don’t even want to think about how many days, months it will take me to read all the definitions of these new words. HMM! Talk about job security.

Everyday terms that have seen increasing use include¬†life hack¬†and¬†hate-watch.¬†Bandwidth¬†is now often used figuratively to mean “emotional or mental capacity.” Image result for Bookworm Clip Art FreeOur online lives have given us¬†embiggen¬†and¬†subtweet. Even more colorful language is on display with¬†dumpster fire, used to mean “disaster,” and¬†mansplain, a word that dates back only to 2008 but has quickly shown its utility.

Finally, we see the inclusion of an increasing number of interjections and respellings, in part because communication via electronic text increasingly uses approximations of speech, including¬†hmm,¬†ooh,¬†mm-hmm, and, welp,¬†welp. Which just goes to show that the dictionary can still be useful for providing meanings even when you’re speechless.

Hello Yarn!

Knitting-Yarn-3Hi everyone!

I bet you are thinking I’m going to talk about yarn that I knit with.
You are incorrect!

My mistake on the title. I should have put Yarn Tellers (storytellers).

Can you think of any yarn tellers?

Why is storytelling important?

The Boyhood of Raleigh by Sir John Everett Millais, oil on canvas, 1870.
A seafarer tells the young Sir Walter Raleigh and his brother the story of what happened out at sea

Storytelling describes the social and cultural activity of sharing stories, sometimes with improvisation, theatrics, or embellishment. Every culture has its own stories or narratives, which are shared as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation or instilling moral values.[1] Crucial elements of stories and storytelling include plot, characters and narrative point of view.

The term “storytelling” can refer in a narrow sense specifically to oral storytelling and also in a looser sense to techniques used in other media to unfold or disclose the narrative of a story.

Disambiguation Storytelling may also refer to:

Hello What Makes You Happy?

Charlie Chaplin quoteHi Everyone!

I found Lemonade Life a WordPress blog site at https://lemonlemonade.wordpress.com/things-that-make-me-happy/

Take a look and see if you can relate to one that will put a SMILE on your face.

Some times to me it’s the littlest things that make me happy.¬†optical-illusion-2

Milo (my cat) loves to send his toys right under the refrigerator (fridge as I say). I had just got two of his toys out and low and behold, he got them under the fridge again. “Milo this is the last time today I’m getting them out.”¬†bear have a good day

Hello! I’m Milo.

Hope got my toys out again. She’s a tough softy?

Now he loves to help me out! He gets his paw in the opening and keeps shoving his paw further, but it doesn’t help. So I get a toy out and some how he got dirt on this face. Milo, Milo, Milo how did you do that?
He looked at me with such a look. “Hey! Just helping you out and now look at my me now!”
I got some more out Saturday 8/18/2018 night. This is a daily routine. I think it helps my waist line a little. I just checked waist line РI would have to get his toys at least a thousand (1,000) times to even get a 100th (100) of an inch.

Does your pet/(s) ever give you a look when they do something?
That so innocent look????

Have a great day! Hope
