On the raised bed blogroll, its very extentsive even mentioning people with bad backs or gardening sitting down. (got my attention) lol. I've worked around a broken back since 1978 and really appreciate what I've learned from others. Got my-sef on oxygen last april, haha,

On that blog, which stands for [ weblog ] there is a link that says (visit) Listed are: | braindrano | heycharlieblog | & Dave's Garden |

I mention my other two to show varience so ta speak.
A blog is;
tha cheapest, fastest, simplest, for a dummy like me to have something similar to a website.

You don't have to use html, know almost nothing about how to do this stuff!

Explains it well 'what is a blog'

There are millions of bloggers out thar my texican friends.
At the top of any of my blogs you'll see, [ BlogThis! ]
[ Get your own blog ] & [ Next blog ]

Should you consider a weblog of ya own, this is what a son of mine out Az way did while talking to me over the phone.
I try to tell him what they were, gave him a url to mine. The conversation was short. at the end he said. go here, gave me the addy, url to his blog.

A blog is a little like a journal, but you know (and want) others to read it, so you shouldn't be giving out deepest darkest secrets (not that any of us have any!). Many blog hosting sites also support posting pictures, and most of them seem to be real easy to use. There are free blog sites, and some that charge. Here is a free site (tho you can "upgrade" to a pd acct, I believe.) http://www.blogger.com/start

"blog" comes from "weblog."

http://gardenbycharlie.blogspot.com/ Has been updated with "Current Solar Data" that you can

Thanks Ya'll

Thanks Charlie, you are marked! (bookmarked)

San Jacinto County, TX(Zone 8a)

Oh my, been marked again lol.....
If ya bookmarked it keep in mind to reload or refresh as it changes often.
Today I added a couple of things.
Open and read part of the book 'Joy of Gardening' found in blogrolling.

I've had my copy for years. Dick Raymond got my attention when I discovered he had a broke back. I still use many of his methods!
Several pages can be read from the site.

Here I done gone and put a guest book on http://gardenbycharlie.blogspot.com/ I have the tag board where you type a short comment or so. I got ta thinking it might be nice to hav-a-gb where ya could say what ya think, long as you want.
Didn't know if I could on a blog or not! Sign it and find out. I did a test post!
