Photo test

This is a test to see how this new program works with photos.  If this works, you should see a picture of a tree.  With a face.  This was outside the bedroom window of the cabin we stayed in on our honeymoon. Oh!  It works!  The resizing thing even worked out really well.  This is … Continue reading “Photo test”

Oh!  It works!  The resizing thing even worked out really well.  This is very good.

Second test—using a picture already saved to my gallery instead of one from my hard-drive.  This should be a pink flower:

Also seems to have worked!  Awesome.  Posts with pictures are much more interesting.  If I can get them to post easily, and this seems to be working really easily, then I’ll be much more likely to do that.

Now if I could work out why my tags keep going to Technorati and not working with the actual tag system on the site . . . .

Question for those of you who have me on your RSS feed:  Do you have a thing show up every time I edit a post?  I’m wondering if it shows up as new every time I open this thing to change something, or whether it just showed up only the one time.  Please let me know.

Thanks for your patience, everybody!  I’m having fun playing.  🙂

Working on updates

Okay, so one of the frustrations that I’ve had with my site is that I don’t have a program that I can use to post directly to it.  Every time I want to post to Inking, I have to log in to the site, create an entry, publish it, and do all this stuff while … Continue reading “Working on updates”

Okay, so one of the frustrations that I’ve had with my site is that I don’t have a program that I can use to post directly to it.  Every time I want to post to Inking, I have to log in to the site, create an entry, publish it, and do all this stuff while in Firefox.  And, okay, so it doesn’t sound like a big deal.  But somehow the aesthetics of the whole thing really turns me off.

Justin found me a program, though, that should help with that problem.  It’s called BlogJet.  I’ve downloaded a trial of the program and that’s what I’m using right now.  It’s pretty nifty. Lots of little buttons and things.  I’ve got 30 days to decide if it’s worth the money they’re asking for the whole installation.

Meanwhile, I guess I could report on my afternoon.

My project for this afternoon was to get to the Social Security office in town and get my name change paperwork processed.  I went online and found out all the information I needed, got the forms completed, got directions, all of that.  So this afternoon, I took my envelope with the forms, my marriage license, and my passport and set out.

The office wasn’t all that difficult to find—a little strange, but not to bad.  I got in and got my number, which said that I’d have an estimated 39 minutes to wait.  So I sat and read my book.  And then I gave my chair to a woman and her kid so she could sit next to her husband and went to read my book on the other side of the room. And I kept on reading my book.

About 50 minutes after arriving, they called my number.  I went to the appropriate window, handed the woman my paperwork, answered all her questions, got the letter that she handed me, and left.  It took less than 10 minutes to do the whole thing.  It’s not too bad really.  In an office as popular as Social Security, a lengthly wait is to be expected, and less than an hour isn’t anything worth complaining about.  I didn’t get get all the way through the short story I was reading.  And the paperwork part of the whole thing was much easier than I’d expected. 

And now I have a piece of paperwork that has my married name on it all official looking!  It’s exciting.  My actual card will arrive sometime in the next two weeks.

Tomorrow, Justin and I are going to the DMV to take care of that whole thing.  He’s transferring his license to Georgia, finally, so we’ve both got business to take care of in that office.  Hopefully it won’t be too painful.

We’ll both be sure to bring books, though.  Just in case.

Rehearsal Dinner

We’ve finally worked out where we’re going to be holding the rehearsal dinner.  It’s going to be at Carey Hilliard’s.  It’s a great seafood/barbecue place with a very diverse menu and a fun atmosphere.  Again, all of our guests are more than welcome to come to dinner with us–with so many people coming in from … Continue reading “Rehearsal Dinner”

We’ve finally worked out where we’re going to be holding the rehearsal dinner.  It’s going to be at Carey Hilliard’s.  It’s a great seafood/barbecue place with a very diverse menu and a fun atmosphere.  Again, all of our guests are more than welcome to come to dinner with us–with so many people coming in from out of town and with so little time to catch up with everybody, we’d like to open as many opportunities to get together with people as we can.

The restaurant is located at 8410 Waters Ave, Savannah, GA 31406.  Here’s a Google map:

I’ll have print-outs with the directions at the rehearsal, too, just in case people don’t print them out.

Less than a week to go!  I can’t wait to see all of you!
