|"My little space on the web"|
|I have always loved this image. I hope that it is ok with Mr. Merriam that I have this image here. I truly enjoy his work. So with this I say:" Thank you Mr. Merriam, for giving us the wonderful art you do!"|
This is my little spot in this big World Wide Web. This is a first for me as it was or is the first for you. I have so many things I want to do with "my little space", so it will take some time putting it all together. What I would like to do is first say something about myself and what is within my world.
I am a mother of two children. One boy (actually a man now...lol) He is 26 and lives up in New Hampshire. He is living there with his long time girlfriend. I have a daughter, she is 23 and she herself is a mom also, which of course brings me to the part where I say that I am aslo a grandma!...They both live here with me in New York. My grandson is now 18 months old.
I have been online now for 3 years. I have learned alot of new things. I started out doing Geneology...I come to find out that is where alot of "newbies" start. I, of course did not know that at that time. I was able to go back 5 generations and then hit a dead end. I could have probably persued it more, but resources did not allow that. Besides money, it was starting to get difficult in locating people in the areas where I needed info from. Yes, there are people out there that are willing to help, but you have to find someone in the specific area where you are looking. In my case it was Poland. And communicating was somewhat fustrating. At that point, I was content with what I was able to dig up myself. During my search, I did locate a relative...he lives in New Jersey and he was into Geneology at that time too, so it was nice to talk with another "distant" relative. He had dug up quite a bit of info as well. We both ended at the same point. Poland. We both believe that we started to have a problem looking for documents because opf what took place during the war. Alot of documents were destroyed, and alot of people also changed their names during that period of time.
So, after the "Geneology" thing, I went on and browsed around. I think being connected to the "World Wide Web" is a wonderful thing. There is just so much information out there. Well, I guess I didnt need to say that...lol.
In the last 2 or so years, I came across Graphics and graphic programs. That opened up a whole new world! I have always enjoyed art...all forms.
I was not that good with drawing or sketching, I could draw...a little. These graphic programs taught me alot.
Words that I have heard before, but not knowing what it meant. Words like
Bezier, Raster,Moire,Vectors etc. Who knew?...lol The programs taught me how to put all those words to good use. The programs also taught me how to do animating. I hope to do a page displaying some of the things I learned.
Besides the artwork, I am going to have computer help tips and links. I hope that it will help at least one person learn computer things like I was able to do thanks to dedicated people out there with their helpful sites. I really am really greatful to those people.
Ok, I guess thats it for now. Places to go, people to see and pages to re-do!
Thanks for taking the time to read this page.
