Blogging with Word

This is simply a practice blog session for me to work out some of the intricacies of integrating word with blogger, or vice versa. 

Hello my dear friends and associates! I am trying out this new process of using Microsoft Word to post on my blogger account. Let us…..or should I say let me…...hope it works!
winks Pictures, Images and Photos

It was not very difficult, but….of course, with my brain, well………….I made it that way!


For those of you who do not yet use Microsoft word 2007 with Blogger, try it….it may open up a completely new world of blogging success!

You can find all the information you will need about setting up your blog with word HERE has some very good information about what you can and cannot do with the software, and you can find that information - HERE

Overall, it seems to me that this little piece of software is going to make my (blogging) life, just a tad easier …I hope!

We shall see, as the saying goes, "practice makes perfect".

After having completed this post in word I hit (Publish) in the upper left corner of word, and it automatically posts to my blog! Wow! Nice!  

Having said that, there is only one small problem that I will have to work on a little bit longer.  The pictures that I inserted into my blog post while in word, did NOT get posted with the script to my blog. 

For now, I am simply publishing from word as a draft, and then I have to go back and insert the pictures later, before I actually publish it.  I am not sure it is worth the hassle, but if I can figure out the picture provider I'll be set!!  Hehehehe

Important Update On My Teeth!

Okay, sooooooooo

I told you all in my "Toothy Post" that I would publish, for you, the picture of the way my teeth look with my current smile.  I had also, in that post, told you that I added a Paypal donation button in hopes that those of you who could spare a dollar or two to please help me out.  Please understand that I am doing this to show you that I am in real danger of becoming seriously ill, (this from the doctor, dentist), if I do not have something done soon!

I asked the dentist if he knew how that could be possible without money?  He says, "you can work out some kind of payment plan with my staff, it shouldn't be a problem."  Ha!  Yeah right.........for YOU it isn't! I know how I sound to you, contrary, cynical??  Yes, I suppose I am. But only because society has taught me cynicism the hard way.   Hm?  Maybe I should have told him how many (payment plans) "MEDICAL" I'm paying on right now already!!!  Sighhhhhhhhh!
Last week, I started having terrible pain in the area of my eyetooth. I had to go see a dentist when it became totally unbearable for me!!    I found out that I had developed a really bad infection at the root of my eyetooth, and one right next to it. Both of which have broken off at the gum line. The left side of my face was so swollen that I could barely breath through my nose. The infection had gotten into my sinus.  The dentist gave me some antibiotics and something for the pain. I am just now starting to feel human again. That was a very unpleasant experience!  But, I don't think anyone can understand the depth of pain this causes unless you have experienced it yourself.

Anyway, here it is for all the world to see!  My Ugly smile! More like a grimace!  

The Beautiful Blogger Award  you will see in my blogroll is now a prized possession!

It was sent to me as a gift from a member of a blogger community known as Blog Catalog this community of bloggers is one of the best on the web.  The folks of this community are, in my opinion, some of the most talented bloggers out there! They come from every corner of the world, and each one has an interesting story to tell.  But I want to give thanks now to just one of those members.  Her name is Nensa Moon, and she is from Indonesia. You can find her by following this link----CLICK HERE 

Nensa is a beautiful human being and I just want her to know that when I received this gift from her, well.....suffice it to say that her gift came to me at a time when I really needed a boost!!

Wow, Okaaayyy, this shouldn't be too hard. But for now I am going to leave you least until I have picked out those 15 other bloggers to whom I will be bestowing this gift.  At that time I will also state the 7 things about me. Lordie, that will take some Herculean thinking on my part! LOL!
