BFS #117 -- Say it in Signs!

Memory Verse: Genesis 1:14 (King James Version)
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.

Intro: This week the other Teachers and I want to shake things up a bit! We wanted for everyone to have some fun and have an assignment that would be easy and enjoyable too. This is a creative blogging assignment but hopefully it will offer help to some newer bloggers still trying to learn “how” to add pictures to their blogs and also help learn your classmates names to easily identify them…and it’s just FUN!

Assignment: This week you are to use your Blog Name (or your own pen/real name) and create signs. There are two ways to do this and you can do one or both ways.
Here are my banners and signs that I’ve made to share with everyone. I have my two of my favorite verses within the signs! They should be easy to spot! Go to Image Chef and use the Create tab at the top of the page to select All Templates or go to the bottom of the page and on the left choose Banners to make your project. Then follow the directions to copy the code and post it on your blog. Have Fun!!! Warning: This is NOT a christian site!

Fortunately, we're in the Land of Wireless Internet. Otherwise this assignment would be very frustrating!!!

To be honest, I'm getting a little irritated with "Free Wi-Fi". Here at Grandma's house in Riverside, I was able to find nearly a dozen wireless networks, but only about half are unsecured (accessible without a passkey). That's ok; I only need one, right? Well, the only one available inside the house is ATT, which requires that you purchase airtime. In the backyard, I can access Linksys for free...but it's raining and my feet are cold, so I want to be in the house. SO...I purchase a week's worth of airtime for $16. Guess what??? As soon as I charged the $16 to my bank card, that particular wireless network disappeared from my list of available networks and hasn't been seen since.

Right now, I'm sitting out in the van in the driveway connected to -- Linksys...for free. I hope ATT enjoys my $16. Grrr.

Making these little doo-hickies was fun! I do love the faster internet connection

Here's my verse (appropriate for a family on the move -- which we most definitely are this month!)

Not that I speak in respect of want; for I have learned, in whatever state I am [Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Sinaloa...], in this to be content. Philippians 4:11

I made a little button for our ministry site... - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more
And for our family site...
