Renovations Day 5

The Book of Faces plugin worked. Go me. Today’s effort has been to hook up Twitter and G+ to echo this stuff. So if all goes as planned, the social media thingamajiggamies will be mostly there. The next major effort is to reconfigure the Amazon links and redisplay the widgets that link direct to my Read More…

Renovations Day 4

I am trialing the JetPack plugin to see if that will give me the automagical social media postage I desire. I think I got it set up properly last night. I’m also trying to work out what the heck I want to get out of this thing. I’m not so sure about that. Okay, I’d Read More…

Renovations Day 3

I’m still searching for a plugin that will automagically post to Facebook and other social media thingamajigs for me because I’m lazy and want to set it up once then let it do its thing forevermore.

Thus, she armed herself with the Cleaners of Righteousness Read More…

When is True and False not True and False

The battle is won but the war never ends

The battle against invading thistle in the iris and lily garden, that is. The prickly invaders are relentless, determined, and nothing can keep them back for long. No matter how I hack, slash, and tear them out by their roots, they return to choke out the irises and lilies, to overwhelm the garden with their Read More…
