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.

HOW TO OBSERVE WomenComp-8

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.

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
Merriam-Webster.com

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

My Art Work “Milo”

See the source imageHi Everyone!

Here’s the scoop. A friend and myself went to a place called Pinot’s Palette. It’s a place where you can have parties for both adults and children. Birthday, Bachelorette, Holidays, great get together with friends, plus loads of fun. They even have corporate events.

It’s really a lot of fun!

Plus I learned something new.
What an adventure!!!!Image result for Woman Paint Brush Clip Art cartoon transparent

The day we went was to paint our pets. They were having a “pet project” where part of the money would be donated to a canine rescue place.
IMG_1912 (2)You had to send a photo of your pet to them,
they would create a template of your picture on a canvas,
then you gave them what you wanted to do as your background,
and the way you went.
I have never, ever painted like this before. This was a new adventure for me and my friend.

Then the art instructor started giving and showing instructions on how to handle the brush, paints, etc.

Well to say the least my background was wild and bonkers of course.
Here’s my picture IMG_1981

Well to say the least I thought poor Milo. What a background.

Now we had a chance to go back and correct our pictures and so we did. Here is the repainted picture 01db93faa0dc5391cafe5601ffc721891e328a643b

The paint we used was acrylic which I was able to paint over my bonkers background, plus updated some of his fur, etc. Thank goodness for that.

So what do you think?
Thank goodness for the template on the canvas. I can’t even draw stick people.

Have a great day! popeye-andamp-olive-oil-clipart-1Hope

Hello Knitting!

Knitting-Yarn-3Hi Everyone!
Have you ever created something made out of clay, canvas, paints, yarn, metal, wood, fabric or your choice of favorite material.
I like to knit. When I start off adding the yarn to the knitting needle, it looks like – don’t have a word for it.¬†kittens yarn
Then the next row, looks like no word for this one either.
Have now added another ten (10) rows, it’s looks a little like a whole bunch of yarn that has been knitted in a few rows.
Another ten (10) rows added, hey looking good, still don’t know what it is.
Another ten (10) rows added, look at this, I think it’s going to be a hat.
WOW! Can’t believe it!
After adding quite a few more rows, here it is

my “HAT”!

WOW crazy hat 2018

Hello “A LA Carte”!

Hi everyone! veggies
Have you ever wondered what “A La Carte” means?
It took me awhile of the true meaning before the light bulb went on for me.
It’s not the way a food is cooked.
It’s not the way a food is served.
It’s not a specific menu of special foods.
See the source imageSome people don’t realize until they get the bill and go WOW at the total.
It’s the way items are priced individually. It’s not only the food it is also the drinks you are having.
So if you think you are getting a deal because the price of each item looks cheaper, in the long run your total bill could be higher than if you ordered a complete meal. 
Depending on the restaurant “A La Carte” raspberrymay work out better for some if you don’t want certain foods that come with a complete meal. Now if you can substitute what you don’t want with something you prefer than stick with the complete meal.
The main think to me is to enjoy your food with family and friends.See the source image
