I have wanted for a long time to have a personal web site. Why? I guess the answer is I enjoy a challenge and I wanted to learn more about the language of the web. I wanted to be able to write my pages using HTML (HyperText Markup Language) as opposed to relying on a program to do this for me. My big question was: "What will be the focus of the web site?" I am not an expert (nor close to it!) in any particular subject; thus the idea of different topics and therefore "Gail's Cornucopia".
I am now retired from nursing; obviously, the world of computers is one of my interests. My other interests include sports, music, and woodworking. I have kept the design of the site simple in keeping with my personality; I am a "plain Jane" type of person. I hope you enjoy looking through the pages on my web site and find some useful information along the way. If these pages give you some enjoyment for a few moments, then my effort has been worth it.
Greetings To All
Greetings from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. It is July 17, 2011 as I write this. Not a great deal has changed since my last greeting a couple of years ago. I seem to have less energy and less time for computer work or anything else. I think some of this is due to depression and much of it is due to stress.
I have gone through my web pages and made a few changes - I removed the page on'Computer Links and helpful information' - I can't keep up with all of the constant changes in technology. I now run Gallery 3 instead of Gallery 2 and no longer have some music or videos in Gallery. I have tried to update any links.
February 3, 2013. I have done very little on this site in a couple of years now. I have purchased another domain name (Gail's Corner) and plan on redoing my web site using WordPress as a CMS (Content Management System). I have done some work on the new site but it needs a lot more work. I was hoping to have it complete by now but things are taking a little longer. This current site will remain up until I am able to complete work on the new site.
If you allow Flash files to run on your computer, you will see a short Flash animation at the top of this page before the first paragraph. I call this little movie 'Seasons'. I have very recently discovered and purchased the program 'FantaMorph'. You can read about the program here.
July 17, 2011.
I have gone from using Gallery 2 to using Gallery 3. I have added a couple of new albums.
