I Feel Like An Alien here...

So long have I been away...

BUT!!!

The Buick-- whom I refuse to call by her name until I get at least one week's worth of act-right-- is BAA-AACK! And part of the reason for my absence here is that I've been driving her to the ground, trying to make whatever the next failure gonna be, BE, and be NOW, so's I can hit under warranty...

That, and I'm having trouble finding downloaded pictures... seems I can put them ON the drive, but they go to the other user's (gramdma's) Picassa album-- and for some reason, I canna find them to move to blog, from blog... whatever...
I'll get it hashed out, but until then...

In the interim, I tried to do a garden video. No avail-- the chinacamera is SUNK... I mean, I could post the majority of the shoot, but how to explain where the rest is, and why the bizarre slo-motion effect therein (hey! how can I do that on DEMAND? lol!)...

Well, let's see what I CAN find...

video

[Well... wrong video-- but I'll leave it... Shall we try again?!?]

HMPH... Seems I can find naught but TROUBLE... Which may make for juicy reading, but shall remain fodder for another posting...lol!


{1.5 hrs LATER in the eve...} Lookie here-- this goddamned shit is ROBBING ME of life-- ain'y gonna be no more videos or what have you until Cyggie gets a new camera-- so, I say, tune back in long abouts 2011 or so... [the YEAR, folks--NOT the hour...]

Sorry, Folk...

I tried. Never seems good enough, the effort, mais rien ne foutre... I KNOW...
All other understanding is blessing...

More Soon, Kindred...

Slainte!

Did your sister buy the drum with that design on it, or did she (or you) paint it on? That's awesome, and I know I would never be talented enough to do play the drum like that. Good job! Hugs.

How perfect is this?! "Hair" is blairing on the TV (the Tony Awards are on) as I'm listening to you drum! It works for me! P.S. The Welcome Back Wagon should be here shortly, offering restaurant savings, coupons, free gift books, relocation tools and more for the alien that's you! LOL!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Xanadu-- the drum came with the Celtic knot ensconsed thereon...

Thanks, Pretty Lady!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Thanks for stopping by, Farkle!

I hear ya on the photo problems front. The other night I nearly drove myself to screaming fits trying to upload just a few images onto Facebook. I was so frustrated I was almost crying! I just had to walk away and call a temporary cease fire and try again later. Which worked thankfully.

It sucks not being able to show off photos/videos. But you happen to be a good writer and storyteller so it's not all bad.

I DID hear my name mentioned!! LOL
When saving a picture Cygnus, choose SAVE AS, not just SAVE, then set the path to where you want it saved by clicking on the menu arrow at the top of the box....creating a desktop folder for pics is an easy beginner.
PS, another trick...save a pic with a very disctinct name you will remember, then use the search button, typing in the name of the saved pic, when you find the file, right click on it and create a shortcut to that file on your desktop:) ..hope that helps :)

Catman said...

Dude,

You're always a riot.

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Livia-- thank you very much!
Guess if i just MUST blog a picture, i can do it the long, drawn-out way!

MOLLY! Thanks for the advice...
My problem seems to be, i can get the pics downloaded, but as the computer is dual-user, I can't get them in my doc's; and canna find picassa from the other routes-- even computer/programs etc. and when I do, i see the image #, not the photo...
Oh well... I'll try your tricks, see how I fare.THANKS!

Lady Rocks...well now, making you sing just makes my day, it does!
Tenderness, huh? It be a new concept for me, but we'll give 'er a go and see how C. fares...lol!
Thanks!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Catman, dude... glad you enjoy it, bro. Amazing what a little too much of the combo of beer and sun can cause one to do...ha!
Thanks, man...

Lydia said...

Wow Cygnus, all this talent. Poetry, drums and even gardening!

So glad to hear that the buick with not an uttered name is behaving again! (you crack me up :) )

I need to go now; I have some sewing to finish, and dinner to cook, and a novel to finish, and...

LOL!

My brother, so sorry to hear that Mol....not even gonna say her name, has been a thorn in your side. Hope all goes well with both you and her, one of ya got's give sooner or later. lol I've been have some weird computer prob's' as of late too, stuff I just can't understand. Like, for example, I can't open many of the blogs I read with IE, I have to use Monzilla to be able to yours and many others. Then, some are just fine. Crazy shit that makes me mad as hell. Hang tight Bro.
