"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

1024 MB!
That's how much "space" that we have for free to upload images!!!
They will be saved on Picasa
As the Blogger Help: Picture Posting FAQ says:
"What does this cost?
Free! Photos in blog posts for free! Go nuts people!"

I'm not one to do ads, but compared to the restraints of before... heaven!

Good Morning!

Still here; the blog, that is.
So, Good Morning!

I think I'll stay here at Blogger... although the domain doesn't appeal to me.
After all, blogSPOT sounds like something you have to remove quickly from the uphostelry before it sets in!

But it'll be fun to play with html code again in setting up a personalized template.
This one, Scribe, is already pretty nice — fantástico compared to the gawdawfull ones supplied at the other blog server.

... images

From what I understood, a giga for images, saved at someplace-Picasa...
Can that be right? All that for images? That is an improvement from the allowance before!

... formatting posts

Basic formating for the posts easier:
text color easy...
fonts alsoif of pre-chosen 7; these must be the "safe" ones...
sizes...  size size size size size
sizes... smallest size  small size normal size large size largest size
An Uh Oh!: no diference on the published page between smallest and small... something in the template?

... and other interesting stuff

... new tools *sigh*

Hmmmnnnnnnn... lots of new stuff here at Blogger, compared to the "old" days...
and my patience to learn oh-so-very-very-short…

Back to Blogging

Today I decided to put into action my desire to get back to blogging. This wish runs hot-cold, or rather, warm-cold...
I'd like a blog, but not anything that becomes another responsability! (or gives me any headches!)

I made the new blog at Weblogger, but...

I made this new blog here at Blogger also... at weblogger images aren't being uploaded!
I've always had some problems with weblogger, so I guess I'll just stay here.
