Navigation Woes

Sunday, January 24, 2010

The Spark website is awesome, has so much valuable info and tools. But I find the navigation very frustrating. It's hard to figure out how to get where I want to go. And today I tried to enter my weight and measurements, but I kept getting the message "use only numeric entries." I don't know what could be more numeric than "37."

While walking, I recently came cross the most amazing vegetable garden in my neighborhood. Raised beds with drip irrigation, protection from varmints, etc. Yesterday I went there to ask the owner who had set it up. Instead, I encountered the gardener who had created it! So I asked him to come and look at my garden and give me an estimate for doing something similar. I'm now waiting to get his bid.

It was such a beautiful day I went to the nursery and bought a few cold-weather veggies that I haven't grown before: onions, garlic, potatoes, broccoli, and lots of greens

    Darlyne, ask questions, dear. We all had to have help at the beginning. Sometimes, it's hard for me to believe that at our age, we can do this at all! After all, the younger generations have grown up with this stuff!

And what a joy to have a nice garden ~ nice you could find someone to make it easier for you. I have always wanted a raised garden. Enjoy.

Walking is good too!

Keep sparking!

    It will come to you soon. I still find new stuff and I don't think you could ever read all the recipes. Try doing your weight tomorrow. There may have been a glitch today. I have had some problems at times, but eventually they clear up.

That garden sounds great. And to get someone to put it in would be a real blessing. Hugs, Jane emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Welcome to the most wonderful program for losing weight!. I too have some troubles finding the right place to do what, but I am very fortunate to have our daughter who lives too far away, but I can send her a spark mail with my problem & she always tells me how to do it & in a way that is easy to follow. Only having been a member 1 month, I still findstumbling blocks but have learned that it isn't the program, it's me. So just hang in there & your Spark friends will help you. emoticon

    Hi Darlyne ~ I know it can be overwhelming when first on Sparks, it takes a bit of getting used to but please keep at it. In a short while, you'll wonder why you found it difficult! emoticon
Is there anyone at your house who could help you some? Or a friend maybe? Just don't give up on it, this is an awesome site, best on the web!

The garden sounds just beautiful and yes, if you can, take some photos and post them? Just put them in your photo gallery on your spark page and we can go there to look.

Keep on working at it emoticon

    I am not a fan of the message board navigation.... it all definitely takes some getting used to.

Interesting garden setup too... you should post some pics :)
