Thanks for the referral to Glucose Buddy! I like it. At the moment, I prefer pencil and paper. If my doctor doesn't believe me in that medium, she won't for a fancy app either. I don't have a smart phone or other tech stuff. I just need to show that I don't last long without meds and I think she will listen.
lotsofshots said… Hi Chaplain, so nice to meet you. I search on the web. I use google and search and choose "images" instead of "web" and type in whatever I want and the word "glitter" for instance "Birthday glitter" or "Welcome glitter" when the images show, I scroll down to find a nice one and click on the image and it will show a bigger one. Then I right click on it and choose "save to my pictures and save it to My Pictures under My Computer.
When I go to someones page, I then click on the second icon from the left on their comment box and a dialogue box will come up that says browse. I choose to browse pictures and find the pic that I want and click on it and choose insert and it will come out on the page looking like a stream of funny looking letters and then when you push add comment the picture will show. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you have trouble doing it. You can practice sending me one if you want. Take care, enjoy!
Sorry for the long absence.....was typing away a week ago, when suddenly smoke started pouring out of my hard drive (had nothing to do with speed...
I'm a 2 finger typist lol)....so had to wait for my "baby" to come out of computer hospital!! Now back on...with a thousand some odd messages in my inbox!!
My wish to have sent everyone a cheerful Easter graphic went out the window...I will now attempt to play a slow game of catch-up! So bear with me!!
Glad you had a gr8 B-day !! It is always good to celebrate them. I use the Lantus Solostar when I travel, as it is easier than using a vial. The shots aren't so bad. I have been a T-1 for 12 years. I was Dx at age 55 --- go figure !!
Here's more info re. the painting. Entitled The First Thanksgiving in Plymouth, by artist Brownscombe.
Most Americans are familiar with the Pilgrim's Thanksgiving Feast of 1621, but few realize that it was not the first festival of its kind in North America. Long before Europeans set foot in the Americas, native peoples sought to insure a good harvest with dances and rituals such as the Green Corn Dance of the Cherokees.
The first Thanksgiving service known to be held by Europeans in North America occurred on May 27, 1578 in Newfoundland, although earlier Church-type services were probably held by Spaniards in La Florida. However, for British New England, some historians believe that the Popham Colony in Maine conducted a Thanksgiving service in 1607. In the same year, Jamestown colonists gave thanks for their safe arrival, and another service was held in 1610 when a supply ship arrived after a harsh winter. Berkley Hundred settlers held a Thanksgiving service in accordance with their charter which stated that the day of their arrival in Virginia should be observed yearly as a day of Thanksgiving, but within a few years an Indian uprising ended further services. Thus British colonists held several Thanksgiving services in America before the Pilgrim's celebration in 1621.
