Happy Birthday To Ewe…..

July 14th, 2012 at 00:01 am » Comments (0)

Best of Birthdays and every day

The only part of the song that matters ….

>>>
Life’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend and sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your head to the wind
There’s a world outside ev’ry darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won’t hesitate
Break down the garden’s gate
There’s not much time left today

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
<<<< Thanks you for giving me all the best of yesterdays, todays and tomorrows. Lyrics: Life Is A Highway by Tom Cochran

They give so much, please give them two minutes of your time

Honor Our Heritage, Thank a Veteran

Without their sacrifice, we would have nothing of importance in these United States and many coulntries around the world.

Thank them for the opportunity to grant you LIfe, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness.

Remember,

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the courts
who has given us the right to keep and bear arms

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN, who salutes the Flag,
and serves under the flag.

ZenCart! The Fix

Expect for the part where I was the FOOL or at least the Ignorant Blonde….

This is not an April Fool’s story.
Based on information provided in this thread, in the ZenCart Support Forum

Although I really liked the idea from PaulM of the Netherlands, I was pretty convinced that it was going to be necessary to “start over”. zen-paulm-netherlands.png

However, after searching around the Community support forums, I found this seemingly unrelated thread from

It “seemed” to me, that IF the problem was in fact the Product ID numbering,

Then IF I could reset Product ID’s and then Reload using Lessons Learning to avoid a repeat of the error again….

It was worth a try. The worst that could happen is I would have to “start over” and that was already a “real” possibility.

I am happy to say that it does seem to have worked and I will now be spending the next few days, rethinking my product ID numbering plans, and using Easy Populate to Reload.

Still VERY VERY annoyed over the lack of information that could have helped me to avoid the problem in the first place – NOT with ZenCart – learning curves are part of the package when you choose Open Source.

BUT we purchased Easy Populate Advanced JUST to avoid the problems of “no documentation”. More about that another day, for now, my recommendation is DON”T Buy it if you are doing so with an expectation of Support beyond excuses for why no support has been forthcoming.

My thanks to the folks in the forum, who have been so helpful. Guess I need to buy some coffee this week for the Zen Team







It Is The Veteran….

It Is The Veteran

It is the VETERAN’s who have honored their country since 1776 with their service.

Today, Veteran’s Day is when we celebrate on this anniversary of the first Armistice day, the end of World War I, whose peace became official on on November 11 at 11am – thus the 11/11/11

They are our grandfathers, our fathers, our brother and uncles, our mothers, our sisters and aunts, and all our family of friends – we have honor this day

May we always


Remember


It Is The Veteran

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the courts
who has given us the right to keep and bear arms

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN, who salutes the Flag,
and serves under the flag.

There are many ways we can honor those who served, but may we never leave our Veteran’s standing alone.

Charity Challenge-American Red Cross

November is the anniversary month of this blog, in just a few days, it will be one Year old and I will be, well let’s leave it at a lot older than that okay.

For many, the Holiday season and our birthdays are often a time of reflection. I just happen to have both in same time frame.


Donate Now

Each year as we all reflect, it seems there is just no end to the natural and man made disasters that call on the charity of us all each year.

It is both heartwarming and utterly fascinating to see how the on-line community so often, so generously and so quickly responds and especially those very special people who like to bend string respond with comfort by whatever means they can.

Generous as those who practice the NeedleArts always are, when I read a note that saying someone wanted to help a friend who lost her home replace your yarn, hooks and needles, I thought how generous, but then I remembered something written September 1st, 2005, by Karey Bresenhan of Quilts, Inc wrote:

” I am terribly concerned about the urgency of the short-term needs of these poor souls–(Katrina evacuees) … for shelter and perhaps long-term living arrangements. Most of them left New Orleans with nothing but the clothes on their backs. I know there are other projects that are being started for quilts for long-term needs, but right now, folks, these people have NOTHING and most of them have NOTHING to go home to. They need help NOW! ”

In other words, comforting as new craft tools and materials might be, there are/were more urgent needs. So Karey’s words have stayed with me, and admittedly coloured how I have chosen to help since then. As we each decide how or if we can respond, some by making squares or afghans or quilts; others by remembering that the Red Cross is a wonderful way to see that their ability to provide immediate relief and necessities not just to major disasters such as fire or flood create wide spread devastation, but also locally to that family whose home has burned to ground, or to firefighters in communities across the country.

I am fortunate to have many “fiber art” friends and much loved family who live in Southern California and especially in the San Diego area. So, this year, in lieu of the usual “nice dinner” to celebrate my birthday, we are sending donations to the American Red Cross– divided between our local chapter and the San Diego/Imperial Counties Chapter

I will be using the donation link for San Diego on-line donation service and designating the monies be used in both cases for:
Local Disaster Relief Fund

I would ask my friends and family who would normally send me even a dollar birthday card in the mail, to donate those dollars to the Red Cross Chapter of your choice instead. Email good wishes are enough for me – there is so much more needed by others.

I encourage you to use the On-Line method and add the amount of first class postage – even pennies can makes a difference.

If you can, please do participate in other initiatives to bring hope and comfort to victims, be it afghans or quilts for local law enforcement to have and distribute, or larger efforts to benefit the San Diego folks,

Not sure how to find your local chapter? Just plug in your zip code here:

And, if you can, be a regular Blood Donor – you can get information about this by finding and contacting your local regional center. – it just might be your life that is saved as a result of your generosity.

And yes, as the subject implies, I have a few more “Charity Challenges” in mind. So stay tuned.
Even if we don’t have a lot, it is so easy to share just a little.
