Yep, it’s raining again! Not that I mind today because I will be back in bed in a cuppla hours before a nightshift! I do hope that it stops on Friday though because I have 6 days off and have a fair bit to do outside!
I am typing this blog entry into a new programme that came along with my last Windows Update……..it’s called Windows Live Writer. It is a programme that enables me to link from the programme to my blog but gives a few more options than the blog programming e.g. different fonts, emoticons, insert maps, and even Excel type tables! Once I have typed in all the stuff I need I simply hit the publish button and PRESTO, it should appear in my blog! It remains to be seen however, just how the fonts and the other stuff translate to the blog and to Facebook.
I have also set up my blog and my Flickr to automatically update into my Facebook Profile. This is good and saves multiple copying and pasting of links and texts back and forth.
And a Kasey update…..she is loving the new job at the Day Care Centre! We’re so proud of her!
Anyway, time for a coffee and maybe pick up a book!

I have put on some photos I took the other day when Kasey and I went out exploring. It was an off the cuff trip but proves that sometimes, before going on a photo shoot, one needs to do some recon work to save on time! These are the only 2 that I was really happy with, but it was a fun afternoon!
Until next time............

I was talking with one of the guys at work the other day about B&W photos that have a splash of colour in them which highlights a subject or a theme. I found this scanned photo on the computer and started mucking around on Photoshop and came up with this. This is a photo of Kims Dad, Ken, marching in Sydney on a past ANZAC Day [not sure which year]. He looks so proud in this photo to be there with his mates and hearing the cheers of the onlookers

Bringing a new and unspoiled day.
It has already circled the Earth and
Looked upon distant lands and
It has passed over mountain ranges and
The waters of the seven seas.
It has shown upon laborers in the fields,
Into the windows of homes,
And shops, and factories.
It has beheld cities with gleaming towers,
And also the hovels of the poor.
It has been witness to both good and evil,
The works of honest men and women and
The conspiracy of knaves.
It has seen marching armies, bomb-blasted villages
And "the destruction that wasteth at noonday."
Now, unsullied from its tireless journey,
It comes to us,
Messenger of the morning.
Harbinger of a new day.
"Morning" by Clinton Lee Scott
