Not Our Usual Weather

I know a lot of you live in parts of the country where you see weather changes rather more dramatically than in LA. Claire took these pictures from her hilltop home just before we had our first thunderstorm of our paltry rainy season. Rarely do we see rain before November.  We’ll see what the new season brings this year.

Update on my move

So I am now in Dexter, Maine and starting to settle in. Kenny and I drove up in my little car that had way to much stuff in it and two very unhappy cats.  Our cats normally love the car but they could tell something was going on so they cried for the first 3 hrs.  We left right after my horse got onto the trailer and it took us about 25 hours to drive.  My horse made it about five hours after we did and was in great shape but happy to be off of the trailer.  Kenny flew back to GA Tuesday to finish this semester but will be moving up to ME after.  One thing was messed up though and that was my address.  My landlord gave us the wrong address number by mistake.  It is actually: 367 Ripley RD, Dexter ME 04930

Sara, Jef and Cyrus

Just grabbed these photos off of Facebook, which I think is getting way too much facetime over the Sink! (Remember, if you click the tiny FS button, bottom right, you can see them fullscreen.)

Photo recap of Chris and Beth’s Wedding

This is a belated posting from early summer. Here is a slideshow of selected images from the event held in Cincinnati at the Krohn Conservatory in June 2010.

Down in the right hand corner of the slideshow frame there is an SL for in place slideshow, an FS for a beautiful full-screen showing of the pictures and don’t click the last one, it’s just an add for the software.  Also, I was able to put captions on some–just click when you see a small italic “i” for information.

Not to worry

Well, all of you who have been valiantly attempting to find out how to post to the Sink are not going crazy. And those of you who haven’t tried don’t even need to read further.

Due to a query from Olaf, I realized you all had signed up (10 and counting) as “subscribers” meaning you could read and comment.  Not my intent at all: everyone is now a “contributor”. You may post with great abandon.

So, let’s see what you’ve got. I’ve got some updating to do but I’ll wait until we have some other contribution.

Question about adding pictures

Lindsay is asking how to integrate photos into posts on the sink. When you post you are in a window like the image below; note the colored area. When you mouse over it shows you to upload photos, videos, music or other media. Just click and follow the instructions. You should get a popup with From Computer at top. Click on Choose image and locate on your computer. I recommend putting your image on your desktop first to simplify things.
