#4 Register Your Blog
Well I've done it!! The little Joybird struggled up the hill a bit, but once I changed gears, I managed to make some "mileage" out of it ( shows what era I grew up in, when I can't think in metrics!) I still feel a little lost driving around the Internet "carpark", but I found this parking space so I think I'll do OK!!

Life on the Farm
Life on the farm is very percarious at this time. Rain has not arrived, the crops are struggling and feed in the paddocks for stock is diminishing. Although there has been rain in recent days unfortunately not enough to give us much joy!! However being a true farmerand optomist continue to live hope for something better down the track. Our saving grace is a full dam of water, which is a wonderful asset for us...... means we can have a vegis garden and keep our extensive garden alive!

#10 Online Image Generators
I went to a website which has a long list of image generators. I created my own tatoo, my own piece of Delfware and played with a few others. You can do so much with them. Again, I think some people have too much time on their hands to be creating this stuff. Although you could use some of them to create catchy images and video clips to attract the teenagers interest in the library, or just a quirky way of advertising an upcoming event.

Now I'm really flying. I saved this image to Flickr and now I've added it to my blog. Sorry for stating the obvious.
Flickr is a great way to share your photos with family and friends.
With families scattered these days, it is a great way to share the photos without clogging up email accounts.
I've added captions to photos and explored the various 3rd party software available. Where do people get the time to create the 3rd party software. What fantastic fun you can have with your photos.
Penguins are taking over Library's all over the world are getting worried that penguins are taking over the running of libraries, driving cars and who knows what else.
Taking on board the Antarctica display, one over friendly penguin argued with the driver that she wanted to drive the car. In the end the librarian won out, but Mrs Penguin insisted on sitting in the front seat. Police were quite happy as she did condescend to wear her seat belt.

You can't trust those penguins - give them an inch and they will take a mile!

Can people please take care of my family
Take a look at this link for more shocking photo's. I am shocked at the way you humans treat us furry, cute, cuddly irresistible bears how you don't think it might be a bit disturbing to see one of us bears with his head stuck in a USB port.
Very interesting site, very easy to use. I have included some of the more recent books I have read. I will be loggining on in the near future and reading more reviews. this would be useful for library useres to access at home if possible and look for new books, if they are stuck in a rut with what they are reading. Just about to start with Rollyo, trying to get my head around it now. Cya

I guess all the effort is in the
setting up of RSS feeds, having
done that it saves the trouble of
individually checking sites to
see if there have been any develop-
ments especially useful for locations
which appear to have spurts of activity.
Having activated a Bloglines account, I went trawling for sites with
feeds. After visiting some sites which I felt would/should have this
facility, but didn't, I added the ABC's TV guide, Lonely Planet
Travel Blog (which had a bit on the Californian fires - so I saw the
benefit of RSS imediately).

Rollyo is very easy to get started with. I was registered and had a couple of searchrolls created in a matter of minutes. I think Rollyo could be really good for setting up limited searches for kids doing school projects - put together a range of good sites on the topic of choice, add the link to your web page and the kids are still doing their research, but you know that the sites they are going to will give them appropriate information. The Searchrolls I created are Aussie Craft Suppliers and Fantasy & Sci-Fi Books .
