Saving photos

Well I have gone and done now and did it real good while I was at it. Every year in January, I move the past year photos to an external hard drive. Then delete the photos off the laptop to make room for the new photos I will be taking in the new year.

I followed my habit but this time something happened. I had finished moving nearly 3,000 photos to the external. I deleted. I picked up the hard drive to but in safe keeping when I dropped it. Horror.

Oh the tragedy of it all. Now all the little machine does now is beep.

Atlas, all is not dark. I have family who does not delete the photos I send. Ok, some of them do delete. But I have managed to get back roughly 400 photos out of the 3,000. Some lessons are just darn hard to learn. Now, if I can remember next January, I will put up the hard drive before I delete. Might even suggest to husband to buy me a kangaroo drive to use as a second back up for the photos.

New Book Out by Betsy St. Amant

When giving a review the reviewer should be open minded. I just can't do it. My great niece, Betsy St. Amant, has a new published book out: Confessions of a PK.

Actually she has several already published under the Love Inspired label. This is her first YA book. If you don't know what a PK is (I didn't) it is preacher's kid. I know several pk's so I am going to recommend the book to them. Then I am going to see that her book is placed in the church's bookstore. I must as the church only has a bookstore and does not have a library.

I saw Betsy once, as a child sitting at a small table doing her school work. I was kid myself, although older when my folks stopped in to visit. My niece homeschooled both her girls. Jennifer did a great job of educating both of them.

I have begun reading the book and when finished, I will give a review of the book. What has been read so far has been right on the button. Here is the link to her website:

Love you Betsy.

Needing a blessing of understanding

I was reading Google's new policies this morning. One of the items suggested, well, claimed really, that they have made this even more friendly to use. I am a intelligent woman. University educated. Just a lot older in age from when I originally set up this blog. For something Google claims to be easier then why in the hell am I having so much trouble getting things updated or add and set up?

Perhaps I have chosen the wrong template. So I am spending this rainy day changing templates.

Wish me luck.
