The Mill

Wednesday, November 01, 2006

Take this test by clicking on the above link.
this is mine below. This is me at the moment

At this time you are feeling 'uptight' and you are urgently in need of rest and relaxation; but perhaps even more than that you need to overcome that feeling that you have been 'hard done by' and treated with a complete lack of consideration. Maybe you have, but whatever may have been the cause of your inherent anxiety, you regard the situation as intolerable. Your are, however, sufficiently competent to turn that situation around - you have overcome similar problems in the past, and really this one isn't too different.

You are working extremely hard trying to improve your image. You need for those people in positions that matter to recognise your potential and to acknowledge you.

Your confidence has been shattered. There are so many things that you would like to do with your life, so many dreams to be fulfilled - and you know that your hopes and dreams are not just figments of your imagination, they are real and you are looking for reassurance from someone. Basically your fears are such that you may be prevented in attaining your hopes and dreams. Even now you would like to broaden your fields of endeavour but in order to develop your 'inner- self' you need peace and solace. You are distressed by the fear that you may be prevented from attaining your goals. What you really need at this particular moment in time is quiet reassurance from someone close to you to restore your confidence.

As of late, you have been experiencing untold stress and this is a result of continuous frustration. You haven't been taking care of all your physical needs and it's beginning to show. It would seem that you have a need to find someone to whom you can really relate - someone perhaps whose standards are as high as your own. You want to be different - to be individualistic - to stand out from the common herd. Your inherent control of your sensual instincts is restricting your ability to give yourself to open up freely but this being on your own, being lonely, often makes you feel the need to give up some of your strict standards to surrender to the general flow - to be like everyone else; a part of the herd. Deep down you regard such instincts as weaknesses to be overcome. You would like to be loved or admired for yourself alone. You demand recognition and tender loving care.

You have so many ideas that you would like to revitalise but you need to realize a stable and peaceful condition to do so. Once you can free yourself from all the aggravation and tension around you, you will make strides that may amaze you. You will not be prevented from achieving all the things you so desire.

John Scalzi's Monday Photo Shoot: Color Opposites

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Color Opposites

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Post a picture that focuses on the contrast between two opposing colors. What colors are opposites? Green and red are opposites, as are blue and yellow, and orange and purple. So a picture that has something purple in front of something orange would work, or a picture that features blue and yellow in alternating stripes. The subject of the pictures could be anything you like -- but there have to be opposing colors in there.

For more color opposites click here -Photographs & Memories AOL

Ice Hockey Championship

My son's Hockey team came in 1st Place this season.
They played a great game & have come along way in 3 years or is it 4(time is going too fast).

My other son's basketball team also came in 1st place this season.
They are all excellent players & started off as a weak team, but as soon as they played as a TEAM, it all came together.
Congratulations to both my boys & their teams!!

Ice Hockey Slideshow

After practicing action shots, using no flash in an indoor rink with limited lighting,
I have finally got a few shots that I like. The game ended in a forfeit, my son's team won. Which means, his team is still in the playoffs...; )

Philipsburg Manor in Tarrytown

First of all, This Slideshow is new to me. I have been asked how I did this & would like to share. I do not think this can be used on AOL. If anyone knows how we can do this, please email me.
You can click on the froggy & it will bring you to a site called Imageshack-Slideshow Builder. You will have to register, it is free. I got this through MYSPACE.COM, but I do not think you need to belong to myspace. Once you join Imageshack, you can upload the photos you want in your slideshow, then click on DONE. It will then give you a HTML code to add to your BLOGSPOT Journal. Copy code & paste in the Edit HTML. You have to add it to POST/Create/Edit HTML.
click on preview to make sure it works. Now, this is the problem that I had. Once I liked it, I clicked on Publish Post
A warning comes up & says there is an error. At this point I would give up. But for some reason it does eventually post. Not sure why this happens.

Life in SPORTS

This is my first slide show that I did, but it showed an error & I thought it wouldn't post. Just like my other slideshow below. I have no clue why it won't post. I copied all the codes from IMAGESHACK, so it should post.

I switched my Subscriptions to Bloglet. I kept Feedblitz also in case anyone prefers Fb. I've been having problems with Fb, so I would like to see how Bloglet works out. I recommend using bloglet to sign up for alerts. Let me know if this system works out better.

We need not speak in words,
but with a smile,
a gentle hand,
we can always say
"I love you"
And we both will understand.

    A Marina in Hampton BaysThis was taken in the summer 2005 in Hampton Bays.

    I took a ride out to Long Island this past weekend. Winds were bad and it was extremely cold. I wanted to take a ride out to the beach, but the rain from the night before turned to ice with a coating of snow on top. Had to get back to Westchester for a party, so I was unable to get any photos.
