Thoughts On Weddings, DIY Widow

What Is Really Important? As I am typing a new chapter called, Going to the Chapel, about my own Wedding which can be found on this website under Love Letters from the Heart,  I began wondering just what is really the most important thing about anyone’s Wedding?  So, I decided it was time to write a blog about it. I understand that everyone wants to have a very special and memorable wedding but to what extent and cost.  Does the Bride’s Dad and Mom or the Groom’s Dad and Mom have to go broke?  What if a couple is paying for their own Wedding,  are they to start their...

Soul & Inspiration, DIY Widow

What Spoke to my Soul and Heart to Inspire Me. As a young child I was very shy but after becoming a teenage most of that shyness went away. In seventh grade, I decided to write a small book consisting of pictures I had drawn with a love story all of which had been drawn and written on notebook paper with staples for a binder.  Of course, I knew nothing about love but I was in love with the “ideal” of love. In Junior High and High School, I tried to keep a Diary but realized fairly quickly, with four brothers in the house, that there would be zero privacy for those written pages....

Copy and Paste 101, DIY Widow

Distant Friends Again My computer does not like me.  Just when I thought, that we were becoming closer friends, the computer has decided to distance itself from me again.  I don’t remember doing anything to upset my computer but it is evidently not happy with me and punishing me. To transfer letters that I have typed that were written to me by my husband I have to be able to copy, paste and unload the key.  I do not have a mouse yet so this is done entirely by certain keys held down together. You hold down the SHIFT + Arrow keys to highlight release then hold down together the CTRL + c...

Computer Volume, DIY Widow

I Need More Volume! Well, I have finally become a distant friend of my computer.  The computer “allows” me to turn it on, go to Google, search for a tab, have more than one tab displayed at a time, and then flip back and forth from one tab to another at a time. Being a very kind artificial intelligent complicated device, my computer friend has also allowed me to download Dragon and Grammarly. Just in case you do not know what Dragon is, it is a voice to text device that will allow you to speak into it then type what you say.  Of course, Dragon will ask you for examples of your...
