Not as easy as you might think…

I started the day working on the bedroom remodel. Since my dentist used my mouth to polish up on his trench warfare skills yesterday, I wasn’t feeling all that energetic and only lasted until the early afternoon.

So, what to do?

Although I was plenty tired, I was too grungy to lay down anywhere.

With the temperatures in the 90’s and the humidity being so high, I decided that it was time to change the main picture on this blog. The snow motif had lost a little of its impact…

OK, it had become totally irrelevant…

In fact, it probably made you wonder why does he have that picture?

Do you want to know why? Because it is a pain in the tail to change it.

You probably think that you just port it from your camera, drop it in a folder and presto.

Au contraire, mi amigo!

Step 1-take the picture. (The picture that is up now is from early spring. I will be taking a summer one the next time I drive by the sculpture.)

Step 2-download it to the computer

Step 3-Go to your hosting service

Step 4-Remember your password…

Hmm, the one that I used for the past several years doesn’t work…

Oh, that’s right! They made me change it awhile ago for security purposes. What was my new one?

Not that…

not that…

not that…

I give up.

Step 5-Click “Don’t remember you password”

Step 6-Open the e-mail and reset your password

Step 7-Log in to your control panel

Step 8-wind your way through all of the obscurely named folders to find where the images are stored.

Step 9-Upload the picture to that folder.

Step 10-Find the place in the code that determines which picture to call up.

Step 11-Celebrate inside as you open up the blog to see you handiwork

Step 12-Resist panic when you see a blank area on your screen

I won’t bore you with the rest. I think you get the idea.

This is the World Wide Web’s anti-12 step program because I am sure that it has driven someone somehwere to take up drinking.

Anywah, just thought you should know that the new picture actually took a heroic effort on my part.
