Must Post All Links To Show On A Page

In order to group Links on a subject PAGE I have to POST them. I will not make a seperate page for MY MUSIC or MY LIVE  MUSIC because I have way too many songs  and many more on the way.  Now, I could make a seperate page for, say, ART, because I don’t have many artworks to post.  If I take a look at TAGS, IN A Cloud, those are seperate pages. Having said this I need to POST something each time I make an enty. So, I will POST another Zimlar cartoon.


Featured Music Video

As I learn WordPress, my Music Videos or “MuzikVids” will not show in “”Tags, In a cloud” unless I “Post” at least one of them as I am doing right now writing this entry. So,   I chose to lighten things up a little with this GARBAGE video “Stupid Girl”. It’s a great song and a fun song to listen to.

Also, I have learned that I can specify the width and height of the embedded video by appending  &w=...& the shortcode. It will automatically adapt to your theme’s content length and give you preferred dimensions.

To specify the width only:    &w=320]

So I’m going to try to do this now to the Garbage videoright now by typing in   &w=320&h=240]


It’s Sunday

November 22nd. I’ve been working on my WordPress blog. I was at Edit Post, adjusting the titles of my (Post) CategoriesLink Categories, Adding new Categories and tags, and downloading images. As I went to “pictures I drew  Post to “Edit” it, after I was finished I clicked “Publish“. I waited for it to finish and it said it was “Done“.  But when I clicked on “View Site” I looked all the way to the bottom of my blog and it had erased two Posts completely.

No it didn”t.  At the very bottom of this page there is a “Next Entry” to click on.  I clicked it and there were my “pictures I drew” and “The Falling man” posts.  I just ran out of room at the bottom of the page (even though there’s a lot of room left). That was the reason.  Duhh…


My Chess Set

Here is a chess set I made.  I found the table on the side of the road and had some paint left over. I thought I would do something a little different instead of doing a traditional, boring, black and white checkered board. I originally sanded it, did the artwork, and sealed it, including the chess pieces, with polyurethane coating. It’s shiny if seen in person. The Board has pictures in each square and vocabulary words that have to do with “competition, strategy, and warning signs”.  Some words are in Spanish to throw people off a little. I did this because I thought about giving this to Stetson University if they thought the students would play on it, like in the Student Union building. The chess pieces ( I had no materials) I made from stacks of broken tiling and  after painting each level I topped them off with a drawing on each piece, The king, Queen, Bishops, etc. The King is 4 stacks high, the Queen 3, the rest 2, with all the Pawns 1 stack high. You can click on each picture to enlarge.
