I opened, what I thought was Windows Live Writer – the program I’ve been using for my Friday posts for over a year – and couldn’t understand why when I inserted my photos they were huge and didn’t format the way they normally do. Interestingly – and probably something that should have alerted me sooner – the program bar was also different and I had already decided my lead-in would be something along the lines of…how much I hate when perfectly good programs you’ve been using just fine, thank you very much, are upgraded and changed overnight.
I’m too embarrassed to share how much time I spent wandering around trying to figure out what the heck was going on – but in my defense I do start working on the Friday post at 6:00 a.m. after rolling out of bed and without aid of caffeine.
Eventually, I realized I hadn’t opened Windows Live Writer but Microsoft Word – and everything became clear and I knew the dunce cap was still very securely resting on my head (just for the record – I am not so old that I would have attended school when teachers did indeed sit a student in the corner with a dunce cap on his/her head – in case you thought I was).
Anyway – this fantastic volunteer wondered if some who come to the Jubilee Furniture blog would rather simply view the newest additions to our inventory and skip long paragraphs of words. My goal is to fine-tune the slideshow to include pricing information but until then I’ll also include my normal format.
Remember, the photos are probably 70% of what’s “new” this week and don’t include any of the other 30,000 square feet of inventory.

Before you worry too much that I have low self-esteem and leave all sorts of nice comments…actually, that sounds just lovely!
Seriously though, I would love to hear if you’d rather the weekly posts be just photos and pricing information (frankly it would make my job much easier and I promise I wouldn’t get offended).
Grace and peace to you, dear reader!
