Word Cloud – Pets

I found a free site that makes word clouds out of the words you choose.  You can pick the colours and sizes  of the words and the shape of the cloud.  There are some limitations on the free clouds and you can choose to pay to remove the limitations – I like this free one… Continue reading Word Cloud – Pets

Zip Lining Adventure

Wow – what a rush!  I knew I was going to love zip-lining and I really did.

R.I.P. Dakota May/97 to Sept 22/10
