    Tags: , dish satellite in Missouri not recommended, fair usage nonsense in 21st century, over priced high speed internet is glorified dial up in rural missouri   

    I apologize to anyone that might see this that I have not been able to get on my “about me” page for several weeks because of my crappy rural internet in Missouri. (dish I might add via satellite.) Anyone have any ideas how to override and get on another way since this is part of my business building repertoire?. Really bad for your internet presence as an entrepreneur to have this. And we pay twice as much as other internet services we had elsewhere. For some reason “about me” takes too much memory ,etc.

    Tags: blog following, blog supporters, blogg followers, dissuaded, hassles, please do not do this with your blog, why you might give up signing on for a blog   

    Thank you to all my wonderful followers and those that support me. I appreciate you all so much. I try to follow back any blog that follows me. I know that I am just a tiny fish in the pond full of many much more knowledgeable and known bloggers of many focused ends. I am happy for those who are farther along than me,and see a followers blog that I want to reciprocate their confidence in following me, by browsing their articles and services; I become dissuaded from doing so when a Pile of hoops to get there must be conquered Just sayin. . .

    Monday Memories, but on Tuesday,,, 

    So I ended up too busy to post yesterday, even though I had planned to. I moved back home last month and am having to clean, organize and declutter room by room. I over did it yesterday not only doing this work, but also got my sourdough starter going and made home made yogurt. It had been awhile so it took longer than anticipated. I also have allergies which wears me out more. So dusty, Mouse turds all over. Yuck!! My family do not see it like I do. I cannot work in mess and clutter. I am into neat and tidy with stuff in it’s place: If there is no space for it, let it go. Any way I need to work today and want to let my faithful followers have a small part of our Resurrection Sunday (better known as Easter) with the great memories I carried over. We had chicken- oven fried. As a side we had Broccoli stir fried with olive oil and cheese. I also made:

     

    Mine did not work quite as well as these, but were still gone so fast that I could not get a photo. (Guess it is the taste that counts?)

    I know this is a terrible picture, but it was hard to get  a photo of the kids playing Slap Jack where they were and they quit before I could catch them not bickering about  playing wrong or something like it.

    And then there were the fruit mini pies we all made. These we shaped like eggs. They were devoured before I could grab the camera. What did you all do Sunday? Whether you did Easter (resurrection day) or not?

    En dash, em dash, hyphens—how to use them and how to create them in WordPress 

    Pretty Neat!

    Deena's Home Online

    How many of you writers differentiate properly between the usage of the hyphen, the en dash and the em dash? Not yours truly! Until today, that is. I hereby vow—well, not exactly, of course—to explain to you how to use these three little beauties properly in your writing and to then use them properly myself.

    Photo sourcePhoto source

    According to this piece on Get it Write Online

    The hyphen is used like this:

    Twentieth-century
    or
    Well-being

    The en dash (which is the width of the letter N) is used like so:

    7:00PM–9:00PM
    or
    August 17–September 2

    And the em dash (which is the width of the letter M) is used like this:

    I went to the store—the one on Keren Hayesod—and I bought the damn apple.
    or
    The apple turned out to be rotten—or so I believe.

    Now how do you create en and em dashes in WordPress?

    Aha! This…

    From cc and bb cream to blush and highlighter, the items pictured are just a few we use to put some “paint on the barn.”  If I have time for only 3 products, I choose lipstick, foundation or bb and blush. What makeup product is your most important?
