Pictures on Blogs

I'm not very good at doing things to my blog. Partly because I just don't seem to have the time to play with it. That comes from having to work a 40 hour week and then spending time with my grandchildren. The first I complain about, but not the latter.

I would like to post more pictures of 'stuff' but loading the pictures at home is a slow process, and I don't have a dock here at work. So thinking about that, I remembered I at one time had a cord that would allow me to load from my camera to my pc. It wouldn't charge the battery or anything like the docking station at home, but it would allow me to get my pictures loaded so that I could add them to my post.

I looked high and low and low and high for my cord. Like my birth certificate, it was nowhere to be found(are you seeing a pattern here?). Daughter#2 thought she might have a cord that would work, but the plug was too big for my camera. So I went to Office Depot and bought what I needed, or at least I thought I did. It does fit, but when I attach it to my pc and then to my camera, it wants to run through an unzip process, and I can never make it unzip and then save the photos to my harddrive. Now, I know it is mostly my ineptitude that keeps me from being able to make this work, but that's beside the point.

So dear Blog friends, until either I or someone who has more sense than I can get my pics to upload from my desk, there just won't be too many pictures and this irritates me.

What is irritating you today?

Have a great Wednesday. Pray for our country. Love one another.

I wish I could help, but I have no clue how to make it do what you want. :(

What's eating me today? I still have this cold. Day seven. And I'm exhausted but can't sleep. Need sleep to get rid of the cold. Ugh.

How frustrating! I'm irritated at my doctor saying my hormone levels are normal. Night sweats and all the peri-menopause gifts must be in my head. ARGH!

is your camera a kodak?
if so you need to grab your disc and load that disc onto the computer you are attempting to load the pics to... actually what ever kind of camera it is you need the program that is compatable to your camera. then it will open.

What about buying a card reader? Mine has slots for several different types/sizes of memory cards. Less than $20 I'd imagine at Office Max or wherever. It plugs into a USB port.

You might also try buying a "card reader" (for about $10), if the cord for the camera is nowhere to be found. You slip the memory card from your camera in it and plug into one of the USB ports on your computer and VOILA! . . . you'll be able to load those pix. Hope this helps! (This hint from another about your age who went to college after raising our own kids and I can't wait to be a grandma!) My own kids called my mom "Mema," sounds so similar to you. Was it the first grandchild who named you? Enjoy!

Oh . . . you can find those cards at Walmart or any electronics store, I'm sure.
