I have changed the 1956 Journal to the Picasa slideshow format. The slides go by quickly at 3 second intervals but when you click on the show and then click a second time

you will open a new window in the Picasa Site. From here you can chose full screen in the upper left corner (then hit the F11 key to get rid of clutter on screen and move controls

below the show, F11 again to see clutter and our site again). You can control the slideshow manually by hitting the arrows and stay on each page for as long as it takes you to read

each journal entry. Plus at full screen, the resolution is great. As far as navigation, when you X out of full screen view and then click on 1956 Journal title, you will see all the slides

and can navigate to wherever you want within the Journal. If you don't want to see the captions (meant for navigation purposes) while viewing the slideshow you can just hit hide

captions (hit show captions again if you want to read background material on a slide with pictures). Since this is opening in a new window, if you need to see these directions you

can toggle back and forth between our site and Picasa. I am moving away from the HTML slideshow format that I originally used for the 1956 journal, as this format will

slow down the site eventually. This has worked well with the other journals, I still have to redo the War Letters.

(Just discovered the F11 key works within our site too!)

Also, before you go to full screen you will notice you can comment (feel free) below the slides, please do!
