In order to not have code blocked, in JCE go to Editor Profiles/Advanced and allow Javascript, CSS, PHP, and XHTML Inline Scripts and under Global Configuration select "No" for Validate HTML. These changes should let me use the editor to add code.


Joey is now making it 5 1/2 hours overnight - Richard took him out at 5:30 but he was a wiggle worm when he came back to bed so I got up and took him out again and he did a big poop. I think I've finally figured out his routine - when he gets up "in the morning" (5:30) he needs to do everything and eat. He then settles down after about 15 minutes and takes a nap until 7 and then he's "up". He peed and pooped again and now he's playing happily with his toys (actually he's also whining and scratching at my leg - which I'm ignoring)

It's cold and raining this morning.

Yesterday I began to try to understand Instagram and I set up an account. I then figured out how to get the code into my site. There are a lot of protections (I have two firewalls) to prevent it but I finally got it. I can see how we can use Instagram for pictures instead of uploading them to our server.

I ran out yesterday and returned the Good Feet stuff - Joey survived and I think now I will run errands when I need to. I'm sure he doesn't like it, but he's no worse for wear.

For the last several days there have been frequent efforts to gain access to Civil War Richmond (login failure). They come all together from many different IP addresses but they seem to be the same attempt. I guess there's a hacking program that can mimic IP addresses and put in common user names and passwords. It would obviously be a mistake to use "admin" or "password" anywhere!


I (again) researched Joomla photo galleries today. I decided on Gallery WD by Web Dorado which I really liked when I was building Mike's site (but ran into a problem with that I can't remember) There are a lot of choices and ways to display pictures - I'm reading the step-by-step guide now to refresh myself. I also figured out how to switch the icons from the ugly ones in this theme to the ones in Mike's - so now the search icon is now so over-powering. I still need to find out how to change the blue button that shows up everywhere in the author's section...(Save, Create a Post, etc.)

Joomlashine still hasn't gotten back to me with a fix for Will's site.

Joey is confusing me. I think he understands going outside and I take him out but then he comes inside and pees. He really got me this afternoon - I was making the bed and put my pillows on the floor while I was pulling up the covers and he peed on them (somehow he got them both). The pillow cases and pillow covers are washing now - happily it didn't soak all the way into the pillow.

I called Montgomery Irrigation and they will be here next Friday (May 29). I'm still waiting on some rain so the grass isn't dead before they get here.

I found a cool garbage can enclosure at Amazon - Richard is going to measure tonight.

It's garbage day - and we get to watch the finale of Mad Men tonight.


Dogs, like life, are simple. We make things complicated. Here's my advice on how to find your best self:


We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.

Abraham Lincoln

 A pessimist sees the difficullty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

Winston Churchill

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
