I could spend a few paragraphs complaining about the change in Googles design.  My storage of pictures is a part of the picasa system and they have reworked it one more time.  I know that they have to make it complicated so it will remind you of facebook's system, but I don't like it.  My older macbook does not like it at all and balks when I try to download my shots.

I am not a happy camper when it comes to not being able to put more pictures into existing files.  I know that the new computers probably have the system power to do that but my old one doesn't accept them.  Instead, I am now having to make a new folder each day that I download.  I don't want hundreds of folders to look through each time.  I would like to use the same folder over and over again until it has filled up to about 300 shots and then I will make a new folder.  A folder of 300 keeps the pictures in order by date taken and it is easy to retrieve them if I just have to go to one folder.

I am sure that if I had the time or was using other types of programs that I would understand this one better.  I just know that downloading my pictures to iphoto first, opening them up into photoshop gives me a better system to edit the photo and then saving them into a file for transport into picasa should be working.
On the weather report from me today, it is raining windy and lots of lightning and thunder.  Not a good day for dogs and a great day for ducks and geese.  I don't have to mow today.  I did mow a partial outside area of my yard last evening so I don't look as bad.  It will be hard to mow now that I have to put it off for a few days.  Maybe Tuesday after school I can get back on to it.   I did get some more tomato plants in the ground yesterday.  I had lost about three of them and I had plenty to replace them.  I want to give some plants to my neighbor but figure I will be the one planting them.  I like helping but my schedule doesn't say that I can do it today or tomorrow.  Maybe monday.  They needed to be in the ground a week ago.


I am sitting with Saturday school kids again today.  They serve 4 hours in the library with me and that clears a lot of their debt to society.  Some will be learning the hard way  for quite a few more years down the road.  This is the last Saturday school for the year and there will be a short four day week coming up before school will be out.  I don't know if I will have work all four of those days.


Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend!!!!

HEY, THEY FIXED THE PICASA PROBLEM. IT OPENS UP IN A FORMAT SHOWING ALL OF YOUR ALBUMS VISUALLY AND ABOVE A TAB SHOWS UP AND IT NOW SAYS TO GO TO YOUR ALBUMS CLICK HERE. IT RETURNS ONE TO THE ORIGINAL VERSION WHER YOU CAN OPEN AN EXISTING FOLDER AND ADD MORE PHOTOS. THE COMPLAINTS MUST HAVE COME IN FROM EVERYWHERE.
