SQUARE ROPE FRAME ELEMENT
The weather is just beautiful - I can't remember a fall as lovely.

I wish I could have enjoyed a bit of it yesterday, but I had my face in the computer all day. I'm writing tutorials for Miles for his students. The one I 'strangled' out yesterday was a beginner scrapbooking lesson using Photoshop Elements 4. This in itself is not a big accomplishment, but the fact that I was using a) open office ( a word processing program ) b) screen print ( a capture program) and PSE 4 - all of which I have never used before... and I actually accomplished my goal!

Besides this, I dealt w/ the library, cleaned the house and cooked a ham for the pot luck lunch at Miles school today!

I hope you all have a great day!

a DIFFERENT word processing program

I used Open Office yesterday as my word program. I do own my own copy of Microsoft Word, but when my computer took it's last crash I decided to try out Open Office because I had heard about it. Also, sometimes we have students at the school who are on a fixed income and Open Office is FREE. Perhaps you know someone who would enjoy it...I found it very easy to use and if you have used Microsoft Word before, this program is not much different. You can save your documents in many formats, including Microsoft word format.

I am providing the address from download.com because that way, before you download, you can read the review there first!

  10. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us. Today is the first time I've been here and I find it very beautiful especially your posts.

    I 'must' thank you for sharing the link for Open Office b/c I don't have Microsoft Word and wanted to have something to use on this computer.
