Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~

We got a new monitor yesterday. It was on sale, so we figured why not. We'd had our old monitor for quite some was a 15 imagine how old it was. But what prompted me to write about it was the fact that it amazes me how dense I can be. I barely notice my surroundings!

When I loaded my new blog background and banner, I was disappointed that I could only see a sliver of the pretty graphics on each side of the center. On the website where I loaded the nice makeover, it showed it as wider and so very pretty.

Well, I used the computer all day yesterday, with the new monitor in place. Checked in on my blog a couple of times.

And it's not until now, that I notice that I can see the pretty pink wood planks with the stars, and the green and brown bows! The screen is wider, so that's why I can fully appreciate the new layout!

I suppose because I'm always thinking about things and projects, I tend to miss what's in front of me. How sad, wouldn't you say? But it is nice to see things in a new 'light' suddenly have an epiphany of sorts and say "HA!"

And you know what else I just barely noticed? This new 'dashboard in draft' doesn't have a spellcheck feature. I almost never use spellcheck, because I forget to, but I looked for it right now, and I can't find it. Maybe it's there right under my nose, but I'm somehow missing it. It wouldn't be the first time I miss something. Yes, apparently today is 'beat myself over the head' day.

Yes, I noticed that too about the spell checker when I posted the new add ons. I haven't been on my computer all day because I've been busy and just noticed your post. Have fun with your new monitor. I have a big screen monitor so I can see the pink planks.
Remember Mr. Jiggs, Steve's soulmate? He passed away today. I feel so sad about this beautiful dog leaving this world. I just went to Steve's blog and seen the picture of Jiggs at the ocean.
This really saddens me. I guess it takes me back to Chorizo. Oh dear. I better think good thoughts, like have a great day yaya.

Aww...Gloria. I'm so sorry. I know how you feel. I'll have to go visit Steve. Thank you for letting me know.
