June 14, 2006...
Hi again, folks. Jerry here. Hopefully the shock of our new look has worn
off by now. [grin]
This has been the most exhausting revamp yours truly has ever accomplished
(and I'm not kidding, folks. We're talking 86 lyrics, 41 new thumbnails,
not to mention the new "Old News" pages... and that's not even counting
Jack's Columns... over 500 of the things! In a word, WHEW!!!)
Speaking of which, I was in such a rush to get the updating hurrying along
that I forgot to load up "The Great Kidney Stone Adventure". Sorry, folks.
It's now been added. Now I just have to get the rest of this year's columns
(plus a few from the past), and we'll be in business (and YFNW won't have to
do this again until... oh, say... in another six years?).
(While I'm on the subject of "Old News", the 2002 page might have looked a
bit off-kilter. Apologies for that. Hopefully the new upload will be more
If there's anything you like (or don't like) about the look, let me know.
The email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
[Just don't tell me too soon. I can't see doing this all over again! :-) ]
Be good to yourselves at least once a day,
June 13, 2006...
Hi, folks, YFNW Jerry here. So... how do you like our new look?
(Don't say anything yet. Give it a chance to grow on you... like Spanish Moss.)
More on the subject in a minute. (The new look, not the Spanish Moss...)
First, the Jack and Misty Web Empire keeps growing, in the unlikeliest of
places! (Which, for them, is just about normal [grin]).
Check out their new space at myspace.com. (Yes, you read that right!)
It's the best thing that's happened to that site since... since... come to
think of it, they're the first best thing that's happened to that site!
The addy is: http://www.myspace.com/jackandmisty
Now, as for the new look on this nest...
Seriously, I've been toying with the idea of giving the site a complete visual
overhaul for some time, and now seems as good a time as any. For obvious
reasons, the new look will come in gradual stages, but the alternative -
shutting down the site completely while we do each and every page - was too
much to contemplate.
Here's what we've got so far:
The updated lyrics page... yes, I said updated. I've added 10 new songs to the
list (with possibly more to come... I'll have to check.)
The columns... Every single essay Jack has ever submitted for perusal.
The bios... The "Finding Her Voice" bio now links up to the "35 Years
of Jack and Misty" bio by our friend, the late Mark Harris of
The Discology... That's now been streamlined as well. The first part will
deal with the singles only; but check the bottom for the link to the albums.
(Speaking of which... if anybody has scans of the "Sweet Memories" cover,
please let us know! We need a 300x300 and 125x125, .jpg preferrable,
but at this point, I'm a desperate webmeister. I'll take anything! :-) )
The Photo Gallery (speaking of which...)
The Old News (still one of life's great oxymorons...)
And of course, the news.
Not to mention, version 3.0 of our friendly low-tech order form.
Now, to answer a question. We recently got a letter asking how on earth we
have the song playing on the front page. Here's how it's done (or at least,
how I do it. Consider this the Birdwalk HTML lesson for the month.):
When you've finished writing your page, put the following AFTER the </HTML>
tag at the bottom of the page*: (For an example, we're using "The Voice" in
Windows Media format.)
<EMBED src="http://sheplives.tripod.com/TheVoice.wma" width=128
height=128 hidden=true type=audio/x-ms-wma autorun="true"></EMBED>
Okay. Now on to other things.
It wouldn't be Birdwalk if we didn't have at least one new Jack column.
Fortunately, we do. Check out "The Great Kidney Stone Adventure"
on the 2006 page. (Just not... too... carefully...)
And that's it for now. (WHEW! I have got to get an internet connection someday!)
Chirp chirp, everybody, and have a terriffic summer!
May 23, 2006...
(Or have we mentioned that already?)
That's it for the moment. Take care.
Best wishes, Jerry
March 21, 2006...
Hi again, folks! Just got some great news from Jack and Misty.
They have a limited supply (stress: limited supply) of the new Australian
Import CD "Life And Death (and almost everything else.)! As it
is an import, it does cost a bit more ($22.95, plus regular shipping and
handling), but they'll personally autograph each copy. Take it from yer
friendly neighborhood webmeister when I say, this is a must have for your collection!
Check the order form for details.
Oh, the columns link has now been fixed (FINALLY!), so now
you can see what Jack's been up to this year as far as musings.
Hoping your spring hasn't sprung yet,
March 16, 2006...
Boy, how time flies when you're under the weather! Hi, folks,
Jerry here, back out of the sickbed, another year older, and raring to go with
the latest Birdnews from the nest.
Before anything else, I must mention the new Jack and Misty single,
"The Sunset Train" on Stardust International (Compilation #60). (check.)
Also, the 2006 columns/essays pages are now up, with plenty of
Chairman Jack's sage observations on... well... just about everything!
(Yes, there's even one on "The Sunset Train", including lyrics
and an audio link!)
Gotta go, but will be back by the weekend.
Feels good to be back.
Yer friendly neighborhood webmeister,
January 29, 2006...
Hi, (*hack*) folks. Your friendly neighborhood (*hack!*) Webmeister, Jerry, here,
under the weather but out of the nest, and welcome (albeit belatedly) to 2006.
A lot has been happening since last we met, but let's not go into that. Instead,
let me update you on the columns situation. (You're owed that much.)
Frankly, I've just been too sick to get to them.
(How sick, you may ask? And well you should.)
I haven't even had the chance to upgrade the column page.
But, rather than curse the darkness, I can instead announce
the first batch of January 06 essays by Chairman Jack:
"The Point Of No Return"
- Food for thought. Pass the Pepto. (Jan. 8)
"Friends And Lovers"
- When you gotta have 'em, you gotta have 'em. (Jan. 11)
"Answers To Personal Questions"
- Jack tells us more than we need to know. (Jan. 14)
"Norm" - Another cautionary tale. (Jan. 16)
"The Fairytale Behind The Song"
- Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin... (Jan. 20)
"The New Car"
- Things to consider when you're buying your next set of wheels. Or not. (Jan. 22)
And that about wraps it up for now. See you when I recover.
Chirp chirp for now,
