I just joined DG last week, 6/30/13. What a great website for so many areas of my life- and I just stumbled on to it. Thank you Dave! Anyway, I've already started a public blog and a private garden journal but hit a glitch while trying to upload a picture to my private journal. Wanted to try certain things out there first before venturing into more public areas but this seems to be a great mid- way point. What a great idea! So without further ado.....
DOING MY BEST TO UPLOAD PICTURES
OKAY, I started my thread and wrote my initial msg. Then I tried to upload some files. Perhaps I should explain- I am middle-aged, 'computer challenged' and 'financially challenged'. Also I've had a number of setbacks in the past several years, all while struggling with major clinical depression. So much on this website really lifts my spirits- thanks again. As for the matter at hand, I don't have a computer yet. When I want to work with a desktop I go to the library. Thus far, all my contact with Dave's Garden has been thru my teeny-tiny $15 mobile phone which takes fairly good photos. It's not a Smartphone, but I've been able to download some apps which allow this tiny phone to do some amazing things. However, it does seem to have it's limitations! I need to take a break now. I'll come back later and address what happened when I tried to upload a photo file with my initial thread post. What's kind of strange is that what happened was different than when I tried to upload a picture to my garden journal. LUNCHTIME!
Hi Betty, go look for the forum called
Look at the few newest threads. DG
is going thru a major o. overhaul,
We the members are hoping to
Dear BajaBlue, thanks for reading my thread and getting back to me, and thanks so much for the information. I will certainly check out that forum. By the way, I grew up in NYC and now live in California, but my parents grew up in Texas and most of my relatives live there so that's where I spent childhood summers and Christmas. Lots of garden memories, and day-trips to the country. BoatleafBetty
OKAY-I went to the thread that Baja Blue suggested. Found out: 1)The DG website is in the process of being redone, so right now glitches are everywhere. 2) I should try clearing cache. OKAY-posting photos might be fun, but right now it's not #1 PRIORITY. Just taking a break from other chores. I'm going to try clearing cache later. Right now I'm just going to try to upload again.
OKAY-photo did not upload. Chores to do, will come back to this later.
Trying to use italics. Maybe it can't be done from a mobile phone unless it's an Apple or Android. I'll try this later from the library. But since I'm here: Peppermint- M. spicata Lemongrass Cymbopogon citratus
I like old-fashioned harvest-themed Hallowe'en decorations.
