Getting Back to a Blog

OK, I’m trying a new system for posting to my blogs. After chatting with Sam Weibel, I downloaded Windows Live Writer and I’m going to give it a try. We’ll have to see how it works out with adding pictures, etc. DSC08714

So far, so good! This is a picture of the Wellfleet Drive-in Theater. Drive-ins were where we saw ALL the movies when I was a kid and also when Helen and I had kids of our own. Times were tough and you could get into the drive-in cheap and bring your own refreshments, saving even more money. The drive-in that we used to frequent most often is now a shopping center, as are most of the rest. There are very few drive-in theaters still in business.

My project right now is to get the levelers replaced on our motorhome as we will be leaving for a weeks vacation with two more grandchildren a week from today. Our destination is Fort Pickens National Park in Pensacola, Florida. It’s a campground that we have visited often in the past. Our younger son, Scott, was stationed there for a few years when he was in the Navy, so we’d drive up and spend the weekend at the campground and Scott would come over and spend some time with us. The water was always tropical in appearance and the fishing was pretty good. The beaches of the area are some of the best in the world due to the large percentage of quartz in the sand. If you need a rock to throw at something, you’re out of luck because when I was there last, there was not a stone of any size on the beach.

I guess this is enough for now to see if I can upload this to my blog. I hope it works because I’ve been frustrated since Google changed Picasa on me.


  1. Hummm, I thought that you could use Picasa much easier using live writer. The chicken that I am, I have downloaded Live Writer, but have yet to use it...

  2. Live writer is the best thing since sliced bread as far as I am using it!..especially if you are somewhere with no can do the post and save it when you can connect again!!..user friendly too...good job for you first time!

  3. Looks good from here Paul, make sure you have the latest version of Picassa they have updated it a couple of time, also the version that runs on XP and the one on Windows 7 are a bit different. but still work great with Live Writer. Give the girls a hug from all of us, Rigg's says to tell them Hi. Have a great trip to the home of Naval Aviation and take the boys to the museum, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna, oh yeah Rigg's and Sadie too.
