Day Two of our We’re 40! adventure in the UK was our only full day in London on this particular trip. It went by far too quickly! What I Saw For lunch, my husband had arranged for us to eat at a pub about 10 minutes from our hotel. In what became our trademark style, we made about two wrong turns before arriving at the Anglesea Arms. We chose a patio seat for our lunch, from where we could enjoy the mild weather and street views. A placard on the stone patio wall directed us to the residence across the street. Apparently Charles Dickens resided at No. 11! What I Ate I realized with this post I need to follow the ways of the foodie and take more pictures of meals, if for no other reason than to prove I’m not relying solely upon liquor to sustain me through my […]

Today was our first day of our We’re 40! trip, comprised of traveling by air to Gatwick by way of Reykjavik, then to the hotel by way of train and “the tube” (Underground). What I Saw As we explored South Kensington on foot, we came upon a set of museums: the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. We opted for the last; being on a thrifty budget for this epic trip, we like finding local attractions which don’t break the wallet (okay, who doesn’t?). What a lovely choice! We walked through several sections which highlighted centuries of portraits, furniture, and even rooms which had been moved from their original palatial site to be housed within the museum. What most struck our senses was the gallery exhibiting the works of Raphael. This room was striking not just for its contents, but I learned that is […]

As you plan your next design, you may not wish to use a standard, stationary-like white background. You want versatility to overlay an image over any background, right? What you’re looking for is a PNG file. What is a PNG? PNG stands for Portable Network Graphic and is a file format which allows for transparency in the image. If you’ve ever tried to use an image that doesn’t have straight edges and corners on the borders, you’ve felt the pain of an annoying white box bordering the graphic. PNGs solve that issue since you can remove any white border. Making a PNG in Photoshop If you’re lucky enough to have Photoshop, you can easily create a PNG file. Once you open an image file, select the magic wand tool , click on the color you wish to erase, then hit your Delete button. Any color which matches what you clicked […]

It all began as it began for all, Online I went to build myself a place. From text and pics, my feats were all but small, But code helped me create my first MySpace. It wasn’t long before a new tool came, To woo me from the Comic-Sans type look. In no time came a new dot-com to fame. As I and millions flocked to try Facebook. The game was on, as more ways to connect Poured forth onto the web for all to greet. Masses flocked to the tools to post unchecked, To Vine, Snap, Pin, Meerkat, YouTube, and Tweet. Walls fall as people reach out to engage; Let’s change our world, now that we have a stage.

I love that my child can reach levels of satisfaction and happiness to the point where she believes I can do no wrong. But I don’t love it so much that I forget how crucial it is to teach her that to err is so human.

Denver Comic Con was more amazing than I guessed! Next year, multi-day for sure, and I’ll step up my cosplay game.

No one cried at the site, but it was still pretty cool.

If you know another user’s name or handle on a social media platform, you can tag them in a post, comment or even a media image like photo or video.

Admirable attempts by fellow adults have been made to teach developing minds about the dangerous side of social media. For our kids, who daily seek approval and attention from anyone, social media is all too tempting of an outlet. And if your child has a smartphone, they’re on social media. If you have or know a child, start teaching them how to use social media: Show kids how and what you share on social. We’re staring and jabbing at our smartphones each day… Yes, our children are watching and know it must surely be an amazing gadget. Use that rapt attention to let them lean in and watch you compose a post or share a photo on Facebook. Let them make suggestions and guide their choices. Strangers are online just as they are in real life. Show your child that the person who just liked your photo on Instagram is someone you’ve never […]

Not everyone is a comedian. How do you bring the funny to your game?
