Becky B’s Squares: Bright Sunsets in California

#BrightSquare Day 17

“As usual for a Squares Challenge month I will be sharing squares daily, and I would love it if you did the same. However if daily sounds too daunting, don’t worry. It is fine to join us weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your squares. The frequency of your squares depends on you and also your blog. All I ask is that your image has 4 equal sides, and that it reflects the theme of bright.”

Becky B.

3 Quick Tips

do you know how to make a copyright symbol?

  • Alt + 0169 is supposed to work. It didn’t work for me.

After all these years, I learn something new every day. What new thing did you learn today? Leave me a comment When I create a technical Blog Tip post, if I quote one of your great comments, I’ll link it to one of your posts. If you send me a link to one of your posts, like Hugh Roberts often does, I’ll add it to my next Blog Tip post.

Do you know why you shouldn’t link to someone’s page?

When you add a link to someone’s blog, don’t use the link to their home page or any other page. They won’t get the notification. Link to a post.

This does more than just notify your friend that you’ve linked. It keeps you current with your friend. Your best friends are not always the folks that come up in Reader. This is a way to make your visitations more intentional. If you haven’t had a chance to read the post, stop and read and comment.

My Coffee-Overdosed Computer Update:

My old computer is officially toast. Best Buy will drive a stake through its heart before they recycle it to make sure.

My new computer arrived Thursday. I thought I could at least open my One Drive and get started using my new treasure. Too many password tries locked it up. I took it in for its initial appointment on Friday. The Geek Squad expert (she’s been working there since October) got in and fixed it within a couple of minutes, so my pictures are all still in tact. YAY!

Apparently it is tradition here in Prescott to keep computers that come in for attention for 48 hours. It comes home just in time for Sunday Stills. I am so excited to welcome it to its new home!

Becky B suggests that we read at least two other #brightsquare posts. That’s another way to be intentional in your blogging and not get overloaded or overwhelmed. Here are my first few from today.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

enjoy Your sunset tonight with someone special!

  1. Thanks for the mention, Marsha.

    I use an app called Photobulk for copyrighting my photos. It’s free to download and works well for me. I’ve seen other apps for the same thing, but I’ve always preferred Photobulk.

    • Thanks, Sally. I miss you too! When I come could I get some small succulents to put in my can wreath that was in the garden? I also want to cut some different color roses, and arrange them so I can photograph them. Are you having flower arrangements for Chuck and Jenny’s going away party?

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
