Teeny Tiny Deer; Thank You Carol:) Hugs

This tiny deer was delivered by Caesarean section at a wildlife hospital after his mother was killed by a car. Little Rupert, who is so small he can fit in an adult's hand, was born after vets failed in their battle to save his mother. At just six inches tall and weighing just over a pound, he is now in an incubator in the intensive care unit at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire. He has only recently opened his eyes. Les Stocker, founder of Tiggywinkles, said: 'Rupert's mother had very severe injuries. We brought him out and got him breathing and then he went into an incubator on oxygen. He is now being fed by a tube.'

Rupert pulls a striking pose for the camera. Staff is optimistic Rupert, now five days old, will make a full recovery. Deer are very, very tricky but this one has spirit. He's an extremely feisty little guy and quite pushy.

There are other Blogger Layouts

Gosh,I was so happy when I found I could copy and paste for my old side bar in the text gadget:) Yes, lots to learn here! Slowly but surely?

For New Layouts:

When you pick what you want! It gives you the code to copy and paste with directions!

Easy Blogger Template Instructions:
  1. Select all the code in the box below and copy it. (right-click and select copy)
  2. Login to your Blogger account and go to Manage "Layout" from the Blogger Dashboard
  3. Click on the "Edit HTML" tab.
  4. Delete the code already in the "Edit Template" box and paste the new code in. (right-click, paste)
  5. Click "Save Template" and you're DONE!

Then I found this share for music that worked easy for me.

To create a playlist to add music to your blog. It was pretty simple compared to others I looked at. You will need to create an account but even that was super quick and easy. Then you search for anything you want either by artist or songname. Once you are happy with the playlist you click on post my playlist. Then you will click option E. At the beginning you will name your playlist so when you get to the page after clicking E you will click your playlist. Here you will have three options. I clicked yes to autostart, yes to random/shuffle so ya'll don't have to hear the same song everytime lol. Then you choose your player color, there is only a couple to pick from. Then click get code. I am not sure why but the first code doesn't work so there is a second place under code box that says "Did that code above not work for your social network? Click here to try another code!
" The second code will come up below the first one. Copy it. Go to your layout in your blog again and add gadget again (I added my gadget to the bottom of my page) and pick HTML again. Paste it and save. Your player should be there (this seemed to take a few minutes also to show up and work). The cool thing I noticed was that when I added more songs at Playlist they automatically go onto your blogger playlist so you don't have to keep re-adding the playlist all the time.

Ann :) Still learning the easy New Stuff .....

I Really Like the New Look

But with out the stretch format it really scrunched the photos of my old Jounal!

Hummmmm what to do? Forget the pretty layout and go back to plain stretch?

Redo every overly enlarged photo, so everyone can just click on the picture and enlarge it them-selves? A project for one of those not much to do on my desk days?

Ann:) ..... Thinking

Oh yes that's right this is not Monday! ;-)

Days of Autumn

Days of Autumn

Autumn is here - a time for transition. In the northern hemisphere this means cooler, shorter days, the appearance of colorful foliage, harvest time, and feasts and festivals. Collected here are 34 photos of the season, from around the world. (34 photos total)

Born in Roundup, Montana in 1925, Bill Holm began his lifelong involvement with Native American art and culture playing on the sandstone bluffs in the Musselshell valley. After moving to Seattle as a teenager, his interests broadened to include the cultures of the Northwest Coast. Following Army service in the Second World War, he entered the University of Washington, earning a Bachelor's Degree and Master of Fine Arts Degree in painting. After teaching art in the Seattle Public Schools for fifteen years, the publication of his first book Northwest Coast Indian Art: An Analysis of Form (now in its thirteenth printing) led to appointments in the Burke Museum as Curator of Northwest Coast Indian Art and in the Art History Division of the School of Art at the University of Washington.

Bill retired in 1985 after 17 years as a curator and professor. For thirty-two years he had focused on teaching, research and field work among Northwest Coast people. Following his retirement he began a series of paintings, mostly in acrylic, of the Native people of the Plains, Plateau, and Northwest Coast, the areas of his professional expertise. He has always been interested in the materials and technology of Northwest Coast Native cultures, making nearly every kind of object, from full size plank houses, canoes, and totem poles to bead- and porcupine quill decorated clothing of the Plains and Plateau. He has published eight books and many articles on Native Northwest arts and cultures, and has lectured widely in North America and Europe. He has also served as a consultant on Northwest Coast art for many of the world's major museums.

Bill Holm and his wife Marty live in Seattle, Washington. Their daughter Carla lives in Brussels, Belgium and their daughter Karen in Seattle. He can be contacted at:

This award winning artist gets the inspiration for his paintings by roaming the west with a cluster of cameras hanging from his neck. Living in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana, Jerry Johnson has been a full-time working artist since 1987, fulfilling his lifelong desire to portray wildlife in its natural surroundings.

With a focus on the role that light plays on his subjects, Jerry creates images that seem to breathe and appear as though they could step right off the canvas at any moment!
