Hello Friends of the Soup.   I am constantly learning from all of you, and writing is something I love, but never made time for until now. I have always been a California girl, born and raised in the southern part of the state, now living in upper Northern California. Surrounded by mountains, and beautiful scenery, I have great inspiration.   I think I have always loved to create, it comes from my Dad, and his dad, I suppose. Although my mother was the rock of the family, my Dad was the dreamer, and a cowboy at heart. I grew up with horses that he raised, and memories of him singing around a campfire on trips we took. He wrote poetry, and his own songs, and played guitar.  His father did the same thing when my dad was a boy.  My grandfather was a trail guide, in the early l900's in Yosemite Nat'l Park, where my dad lived as a child.  My purpose in life has been family. I am married to my High School sweetheart,  we went to college together, I taught school for awhile, then raised two fine sons (both H.S. teachers) and a beautiful daughter.  Have 5 grandchildren who we adore, and fortunately they all live fairly close by.  I've had a small catering business, but now we are both retired, live in the country on a couple of acres, with rangeland behind us.  We are down to one dog, after a mix of this and that!  No horses, although horses, cattle, coyotes, and all kinds of wildlife live behind our place. Our kids are gifted musicians, and one son writes poetry that blows me away, some which has been published. I love poetry and piano, all music, movies, camping, our little cabin in the mountains, but especially my family.  And I love Poetry Soup..and all the wonderful company here! 


Is It Just Me...Or is it a Computer Glitch???

Hi Soupers....has anyone else had problems deleting old photos??  I have several new ones I'd like to post...but the photo site tells me I need to delete old ones.  When I try to delete...nothing happens.  Am I doing something wrong? Has anyone had that problem.   I'm clicking on the photo button....then go to the place above, where it says delete photo...the name appears where it should (the name of the photo)...but when I click "delete"....It doesn't !!!  Hmmm....no doubt it is me doing something wrong....hmmmm....  Thanks for any suggestions!

    I got a response from poetrysoupteam, you can only have 10 photos now, so until you have deleted below 10 you cannot add any more.. it is working for me..

    Hi Carrie, my photo area will allow me to delete photos but will not let me upload photos, there is not even a link to do that and tells me no matter how many I delete that I have reached the maximum.. I have sent an email to PoetrySoupTeam ~~

    Good luck, Carrie, that's all I can tell ya. What I want to know is why my photos start looking like crap after a while being up there. They got this weird quality to them looks like I am wearing a bad weave or something. LIke waves in the pictures. Only half of them but that's a lot. And they did not look that way in my files! Also, I cannot figure out how to switch out bio picture with another and not get the current bio pic deleted!

    Hmmmm...no it still won't let me upload any new photos, until I delete old ones! ??? But it won't let me delete the old ones! Will have to contact the soup team, I guess.

    In order to delete a photo u need to click onto the circle below it Carrie and then hit delete...however its not necessary to delete any photos to upload new ones.. I have so many in my photos that show on my blogs if u want to take a look and did not delete any to add more... this is the way I do it though... good luck... with luv..
