Man… I had just typed out a whole entry here and pressed the wrong key on my keyboard and it all disappeared. So here I am back to the beginning. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?
The whole purpose of this entry is to try out a new font in my blog. Now that I’ve lost this entry once, I am gun-shy, so to speak, and just want to get it saved and off into the netherland of the web before it can dissolve into nothingness again. This always happens when I get typing fast using my laptop. I am not used to the flat keyboard, having typed on a regular keyboard for most of my life before this. Getting used to new things isn’t that easy for me. I am a creature of habit. And having been a medical transcriptionist most of my life, typing fast is what I do, but typing fast AND accurately is a trick with this flat keyboard here.
Anyway, never mind.
How do you like this font? It’s called “segoe print.” (No it’s not – I’ve just changed it again – to comic sans ms. I think it’s easier to read now).
The picture above was taken back in the spring of 2009. We had the doggie-fence enclosing the whole front yard then, clear out to the street.
But too many people would walk their dogs by on the street and they would come nose-to-nose with our dogs, which was OK sometimes but other times was not a good thing. Too close for comfort. So we moved the fence back to cut the front garden area in half as seen here:
It has worked out much better for all involved. And Paul has made the front portion into another planting garden containing my beautiful broom plant, which we’ve had only a year or so.
Well, back to your regularly scheduled program. Be good, and don’t bicker while I’m gone.
P.S. I just found a great recipe for HOMEMADE BBQ SAUCE here. At the last minute, I wanted to cook two frozen-solid pork chops so I pulled them out of the freezer, made the BBQ sauce, covered them in it, put them in my handy-dandy new pressure cooker, and 8 minutes later, they are done. I hope. I haven’t opened it up yet. I’m letting it cool down of its own accord just so the chops are truly done when the cover comes off.
