Dr. Place

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

So if I really go to the Camino I need to know I am healthy.
Today I am at the doctor for my first Medicare checkup. I am sitting here now airing for them to take in to see if I am alive enough to spent a month walking across Spain.

It is nice they have free wi-Fi here for me to use?

Now I am out of then doctor’s office waiting to go in for the blood test. It has only been 1-1/2 hours so far and I am Hungary.
So I wait!

Home now and back from lunch so I looked for a way to have random pictures in the journal pages.

I think it is figured out.

These picture should be random from the whole site. At this time this would be just one picture.

iPad learning curve

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Now that I have an iPad There are things I need to learn.

I bought my I pad so I could use it to replace many things.
Here are some of the things it can replace on the Camino.

Wait I will be back. I nee a WYSIIWYG screen for this and I only have an HTML to type on….

I was on the iPad and now I’m on the laptop. The screens are different in WordPress.
I guess I will have to learn how to edit these pages different if I use the iPad. This is not a bad things I just need a plug-in or work different.

I’ll tell you more about the iPad later.

Little later:

I went through the plug-ins that might help use the the iPad as easy as on the laptop and I see that because I am using the latest version of WordPress and my chooses have limits. Basically I found noting that makes it as easy as it is on the PC & Laptop.
So I will bo back to the iPad and learn to live with it for now. Thinks will get better!

Life goes on

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

Almost every thing I had posted on this site got lost when I crashed this site after just a week. I had many things on here but they are all gone. Some people may be pissed when this happens not me. I know enough about computer that getting mad just makes thing worse. You get all stressed about things that make no real difference.

I saves the “Who I Am” page because I had edited it off-line and it was still available. Everything is just gone. all the setup all my notes all special plug-is to make it feel special for me. Everything is gone!

Now I have a special gift to start all over again. Sometimes you just need to start over again. Like the first time I walked the Camino. I stopped but I decide I might return again and I think I need to start over again.

I will start by making some changed to this web journal to make have that Marty feel. Yes it has to be me. while am doing that I will think on some content that you might enjoy.
