Thanks for posting the picture, Steve. If the rest of you wondered why he did, it's a long story. The Activities Director, who took the pictures, put several on my computer. I posted one, then failed on the others. Megan sent me some instructions. I still failed. Steve sent me instructions. I still couldn't do it. We arranged for him to call me Sunday afternoon. Still no success after about 40 minutes on the phone. I ended up at a dead end every time. Then he suggested attaching one of the pictures to an e-mail to him. I did, and he posted it. He thinks my AOL software is at fault. I'm not going to worry about it right now, but if anyone has a suggestion, let me know. In the meantime, I have been getting an occasional message that backup for my browswer will soon be discontiued and I should select another. I don't know what this means. I do understand what browsing means, but don't know what browser I have, how I selected it or how I get another one. I'll welcome advice from those of you who are familiar with such stuff. You can do it here on the blog or by e-mail.

Here is a photo of a sunset from our dining room window.

Wanda Lott transferred four of the pictures she took for the bulletin board onto this computer and said she would help me put them on the blog. She may get around to it, but hasn't so far. In the meantime, I did manage to get one on myself, but couldn't do the rest. I asked Megan for instructions in an e-mail . She replied, but I still haven't succeeded. Don't know what I've been doing wrong.

Activities Director, Wanda Lott, took pictures today of the three couples who live here. Norman (wearing tie) and Georgia Wegmeyer and Gus and Betty Stefkovich are the others.

Thought I would bring you up to date on recent visits. Megan and Steve were here on Saturday, January 16, Eileen, Anya and John on Friday the 29th. On February 17 Scott has some business in Columbus and should be able to come here that afternoon. Don't know of others until April. I'll want to know about how many of you will be here then, so arrangements can be made with those staff members who might be invloved.

So far this winter, compared to some parts of the country, central Ohio has been a pretty good place to be. The snowfall has been about average with no big accumulations. But there have been late winter, early spring surprises before, so we'll keep hoping there isn't one in late April .

I have brought up through the storm of December 23, 1943. Don't know how many of you read it. I hope to make it more user friendly in the future by breaking it up into smaller segments with an index on the home page. I'm pretty sure that can be done. In the meantime, I tell the people who have helped me so far that I'm approaching 90, so they have to be a little patient. The site actually is for a small business, so what I'm doing with it is different from the usual kind of development. I've had comments from other than family members - one from a woman whose mother has Alzheimers. She said she sees," a future of what my Dad will be doing for my Mom " and has been helped "at a time I needed to read it the most." That makes the writing all the more worthwhile to me.
