I am continuing w/the 1959 Journal using 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 1959 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 used for the 1955, 1956 & 1957 journals, as this format will

slow down the site eventually. I am experimenting at this point but when I see how this works, as I add pages and figure out how I will link to movies, etc, I may redo the first

three journals and War Letters. I also noticed the forum is not working, so I will have to take some time to fix this also. (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, as I did on the George's Basement slide #63 to share a story about a slide, please do!
