2018 is winding down...

and I'm as worn out as the year.

Having pretty much accepted the fact that I'll never have any real focus for this blog, I'll continue on with my moody self posting whatever I feel like...until Blogger/Google make me stop.

Baron the Dachshund turned 10 this past April, he's still his same cuddly, stubborn, barky self πŸ•πŸ˜„

As for me I turned another year older this past summer and I am, also, still my same cuddly, stubborn, barky self πŸ‘΅πŸ˜„

Baron and I wish everyone a πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ€Ά Merry Christmas πŸ€ΆπŸŽ…πŸŽ„ and a Happy New Year,

that's the year I created my very first online (AOL) website...I still miss the AOL man (Elwood Edwards) who'd say, "You've Got Mail," when I signed in.  AOL was great, they had tutorials for learning how to use 'html,' which enabled me to create my own pages.  No WYSIWYG (What You See IS What You Get) back then, most web sites were either created by individuals or professionals who coded each and every page using HTML.  Now it's Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), which according to what I read when it first started being used was meant to be easier, I never found it to be so.  I never tried coding with CSS, I just went straight to WYSIWYG and blogs. 

Way back it was good times though, times of innocence and learning and meeting folks from all over the world.  Surprisingly enough I still maintain contact with some of those I've met over the years, but I've lost contact with many, many more.   The biggest issue that caused folks to desert the web, early on, was with copyrights.  And sadly, it's still an issue.  Just today I saw where someone on Twitter had their artwork stolen.

20 years and I've had so many websites and so many blogs that I'm no longer able to remember who with or what the names were.  I've probably had this one the longest, however, it started out with a different name (or more likely a succession of names).  I've grown rather fond of  "yaya snaps" and the header, which came from a photo I took quite a while back at the "Hair Jungle."  The Hair Jungle was a beauty salon, it no longer exists and the man who owned it and styled my hair for several years is deceased.  

Life on the Internet and every day life are changing every second.

Photos are from the "Hair Jungle," which was so much more than a was an EXPERIENCE!!!

Happy Saturday from, Theanne and Baron

I find it quite sad how little reciprocity there is between blog sites,
 such as Wordpress and Blogger.  It would be nice if I could visit other blog sites and leave a comment for folks I've been friends with for several years.
  Without having to create a new blog πŸ˜’

struggling to find a bit of calm in the storm,
