Help Part 2

Just when we thought everything was right as pictures are still not working!!  Janice can put pics in my blog posts no problemo, but for some reason I can't.  I'm pretty sure it's not just my less-than-techy-mind because Janice gave me such simple, straight forward step-by-steps, and yet?  No pictures!

So I'm thinking maybe it's my computer??  I'm going to throw it out there...does anyone have ideas as to why blogger isn't interpreting the html codes I'm copying and pasting (from Flickr) into my posts? 

In other news, one thing we're getting closer to settling on is what to do with the front porch.  For a while we were on standby because we both thought that our idea was the best (and probably still do lol) but the reality is that it's our house so we have got to compromise.  We chatted about some solutions last night.  I am willing to do the iron spindle thing, but the only thing I really really don't like is when a front porch looks like a back deck (with plain wood).  So I suggested what about doing the black spindles but painting the wood white.  He doesn't mind the idea look-wise (although I have a hard time picturing it myself, I need to search for some inspiration pics) but doesn't want to paint the wood because any water will cause it to bubble and peel.  But this is 2012, surely there's got to be weather-resistant paint out there somewhere, no??
Anyhoo, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  We got a little more gardening done, did some running around and generally had a more laid back weekend as next weekend is jam packed!! 

I'm off to search for some black spindled-white railinged front porches!

Have any computer tips to share?  Get any gardening done??  Have you painted outdoor wood and has it held up to the elements?


  1. Update: I tried putting some pics in a post while at work *sshhhh* and it did it just fine, so clearly it's my computer at home...but what about my computer!?

  2. What kind of computer do you have?

  3. It's a Dell inspiron 640M
