They Are Many

Strong is the courage, the courage are many
Time over time come, they are a plenty
Service to country and service to man
Free that we are, in this our own land

Hear the battle cry, thunderous roar
Voices all, as they rush the shore
Men and women strong to the core
It is done now, as it was before

See faces worn, see their tears flow
See their might all with aglow
Name them one, name them all
Years over time, in battle some fall

I cannot deny how proud I am
To be and say, I’m an American
Our flag flies high and dips for none
Watch in parades, see how it’s done

Freedom comes with a price
Say it once twice and thrice
Let it ring throughout the land
They are the reason we stand

For love of country, for want of peace
I tip my hat for it is the least
Do I for them one, and do for them all
Many have fallen, many answer still the call

It’s A Start

The last thing I said in yesterday’s post was, what to do…what to do. I guess never giving up is one thing. When I got home from work, TheWife and I talked. It had nothing to do with what I have been posting about but it was talk that made me feel as if there is hope.


That’s the amazing thing about life….you never know what to expect at times. There were no fireworks, flashing lights or anything like that. It was as simple as can be, but it was genuine. I soaked it up like a sponge. I’m not saying that this is the beginning of what I have been hoping for….what I am saying is there was something in the air…it felt good.


What we did talk about had a lot to do with the future. We watched TV had some laughs and talked a bit more in between.


It’s not much, but….It’s A Start.

New Designs



I love working with the software I use to create my designs. It is older software and I recently purchased an upgraded version of the software. Honestly?….I like the older one better. But, saving the file in a format other than that strictly for the software, renders the printed copy jagged around the edges…fonts included.


I have copies printed in the format from the software and thought I could scan them, upload them and save them in different formats to see what I get.


One problem…after upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium, my scanner is dead in the sea. I even tried compatibility mode under several different flavors without success. 


I tried copying the clip art from the old to the new before editing but after performing even the smallest re-size, it starts to distort. I’m messing around with designing another logo with the newer software, but I’m not happy with the arrow selection and the fact that I can’t edit the color as with the older one. Using the newer software, I lose the question mark from this design.


What makes this design unique in my eyes IS the question mark. The ability to edit the arrows is a very big plus.


I have a few more ideas but it requires the use of a scanner.


Hmmmmm…..

Then Again….

This is a post I had sitting on the shelf. I was struggling at the time and loaded this page with the images I had taken the time to choose according to my mood at that time. The date of the draft was February 13, 2011.

the way i’ve been feeling 
lately…like i just wanna 
say…i give up!

                                                    i don’t know if i’m
                                  coming or going                                                                                                                  
                                                   

but i know i have family
and friends, some i know 
in flesh and bone, and some
i have never met….










i appreciate you being there, even in silence…i have said a time before, the journey is ours alone, but we do not travel alone…

even with friends and support,
i have to look into the 
mirror to see what is there

 anyway, i want to wish everyone 
a happy valentine’s day!

I just couldn’t let all my hard work go to waste…now could I?

I Love A Challenge





I wasn’t going to say anything, but I’m in the beginning of a 30 day blog challenge. It began on the 19th. I have to say that so far I am really enjoying this…but’s it’s early. Not that I don’t enjoy writing, I’m afraid of the block. It’s not here yet so I really shouldn’t even be thinking about it…besides, that’s not like me.









I’m really good with communicating with people. I make friends easily, but for some reason, I have trouble opening up on my blog. Thus the challenge.


This will be good for me in a lot of ways and we will all find out together.


The picture?….I just like it. It was a random pick. It has nothing to do with the post title, I had actually forgotten to title this post. I had finished the post with I just like it. ….I love coincidences too.
