Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Sunday Reruns - Help (?) From my Son


It's Sunday again, and you know what THAT means!?! It's time for Sunday Favorites!!!

Sunday Favorites are RERUNS - - - if you want to participate, just repost something you previously posted "back in the day."

(NOTICE: This is NOT a current event ;-)

Thanks so much to Chari over at Happy to Design for hosting this meme, "Sunday Favorites."

Techno-illiteracy. I just want to know how to do some simple things like change my picture file size so I'm not filling up my blogger space so rapidly.

When my techno-geek-bum-college-student son came by for a few days visit, I begged him for help.

He promptly began uploading, downloading, and overloading my computer with things that would help me in my quest for more knowledge.

I TRIED to follow his lingo - - - but it was all GEEK to me. I mean, I'm barely swimming around in a Kindergarten Pool of "Dick and Jane" and he threw me a Tolstoy "War and Peace" lifeline!!!!

When I cried out with tears of frustration - - - -

All he could do was hang his head at my total ignorance.

And I still am - - - - ignorant. :-(

But hey, Kyle, THANKS for trying!!!

I've been there! Ony it's my hubby that is jabbering away at a mile a minute about RAM this and pixels that and so on. Eventually I just have him do it for me because I'm more confused than when we started! Haha. Such is life though. You're good at other things and we all can't be amazing at everything. :)

I do better teaching myself computer stuff... trial and error I guess you could call it.

The biggest thing that ever helped me was getting off a Windows system and onto a Mac. I know, I know..... everyone tells me to shut up about it, but it's the truth. Windows just confused me to the hilt.

Oh boy, at least your son will help you. I've been after my 21 y/o to help me set up a sound thing and it's like pulling teeth. By the way, I didn't even know about changing the picture file size to reduce blogger space. You're doing way better than I am. ;)

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Hello! Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. Oh my goodness, can I relate with your post! I finally gave up on asking my boys and try to learn by myself. Sometimes I do end up calling my oldest son and he guides or at least tries to guide me on what to do. lol
Have a wonderful evening.
