Zephyrhills, Florida (high 82, low 60)
I guess our cool front is over. It’s been so nice with no humidity and cooler temps. I’m sure the humidity will be returning soon.
I read an interesting article in the paper this morning. It seems this is the 5th warmest winter in Tampa in 120 years. The average temperature (taken at Tampa International Airport) is 66.1 for the December through February time period. At the airport it never officially dropped below freezing (although it did in most places). The last time Tampa had warmer temperatures was back in the winter of 1949 and 1950 when the average was 67 degrees. We’re just a few miles northeast of Tampa, so it’s been a little cooler here, but it has been a wonderful winter.
I’ve been playing with Pinterest a little more and have been learning more about how it works.
The main issue I had initially, was when I clicked on Pinterest, all I got was a page of other peoples “pins.” Tons of them!
To find your board and pins….click on your name in the upper right corner, and you’ll see a drop-down menu. Select “boards” and it will bring you to your board. I haven’t figured how to open that page by default.
Marsha helped me to “un-follow” people that I accidently started following when I originally signed up.
To un-follow people:
Click on your name in the top right corner, or on the drop-down select “pins.”
That should take you to your “profile” page. On the sidebar at the left, underneath your name, it should show two numbers, e.g. 45 followers, 52 following
Click on the one that says following - that will take you to a page showing all the people you're following. Then just “unfollow” the ones you don’t want to follow.
I think I’m really going to use Pinterest. I’m always finding stuff that I may want in the future, or places I want to go someday, or nice campgrounds. It’s a great way to put these things in a place where you may actually be able to find them when you need them. I think I’ll make a category for must see places in Florida, or maybe great kayaking places. I’ll have to work on that as it may be useful to others. I also added a “Follow me on Pinterest” button to my blog. I’m not soliciting “followers”, and at this point I don’t know why anyone would want to. Maybe in the future it could be helpful to others. I hope that won’t screw up my boards. I just want these for my own use and I don’t want all the crap you often see on Facebook.
Anyway, I hope this info is helpful.
and my picture of the day…..the “Overseas Highway” to the Florida Keys.
(when we start traveling or doing something fun I’ll have current pics…for now these are old ones)
