"It was a dark and stormy night...."

Holy Moly Myrtle there's a hell of a storm going on tonight!!!

Was going to do some blogging but with that last flash of lightening....Mississippi one....Mississippi two...and YIKES!! the thunder....me thinks it would be better to turn off the computer!!!

I will go and check the weather channel to see what's going on....none of my students mentioned a typhoon or anything so maybe it's just one of those "summer storms".


Earlier today, I was messing around with the Mosaic Maker again....and it is getting easier...but then again, I also found that Picasa also has a pretty good one that makes some cool collages.....SOMEBODY STOP ME!!!

So...I will leave you with a mosaic I'm going to title......


"Things to look forward to in the month of August"

See....this gives me seven or eight topics to use in the very near future...all having to do with some of the aspects of summer in Japan. Can you just hardly stand the excitement?!?!?
Okay...okay...there goes some more thunder and a public announcement just came on (yes, it's 11:00 at night and they are telling us that "it is going to be raining hard".....DU-UH!!! :-D Dear Someone in the City office.....Thank you!!...without that hard-to-hear-very-muffled-only-in-Japanese message I would never have known!!!!!
Oh...but first, let me attach the other mosaic, the Picasa one....It was a little "interesting" to figure out, but...thanks to my new friend at In the Merry Old Land of Oz who took the time to write out really good instructions...I think I can do this!!!! What do you think??
This one is.......
Just us messing with the new computer camera!!!

Me thinks it looks like you all are having a TON of fun! Your little one is a little hambone, also!

Rain...we have had thunderstorms several nights a week here. I love a good storm though so I'm in my element. :-)

Perhaps we have created a mosaic monster? At least you're feeling better :D

Love the computer cam stuff, but the August pictures are beautiful and I really can't wait to hear what they're all about!

You did the Picture Pile! LOL! That one is always fun. Did you try the Picture Grid? That will make the cleanest Mosaic!
