"When you come to the edge of all that you know, you must believe one of two things: there will be earth upon which to stand, or you will be given wings to fly." author unknown
It's that time of the year....

Thirteen years ago…
in December 1997 I bought my first home PC. Prior to that I worked with computers at the AF Base, strictly with data input. I knew nothing about home PCs. I had one friend that was halfway computer literate and he went with Jim and me to buy my first computer. It was a Packard Bell and it was approaching the $2,000 mark with the printer included. I am self taught with the help of some online friends. The first one to help me was a lovely lady by the name of Rose from Texas. We have talked many times on the phone and she is my friend to this day. Thank you Rose.
What has brought me to this subject is the fact that when I first started on the computer the big thing was to get stationery for your emails. That is how I met Rose. She had a beautiful stationery site and I sent her an email to thank her. Now it is so easy to get backgrounds for our blogging sites. All of them except wordpress. There is not much you can do with wordpress as it is so blah. I don’t even like to post there although I know that some of my blogging friends do follow me there.
The snow here is about an inch, Peoria has several inches and where my son lives is much more snow. I am getting ready now to go out with my niece to the post office and out to lunch. I hope you all have a great weekend.
