What a clever picture. It grabbed my attention and I just had to read what the article said. Ever said that?
Google to the rescue. Well, first I emailed John Carter to ask where he’d found the photo he posted to the pmug.us website.
So, I followed his directions and now I can show it to you.
Google makes it easy to bring up lots of illustrations, clip art, photos. Here’s a screen shot of the entry I made: (Click to enlarge this; click again to get back to this page)
In the search box I had typed “street sign, confused, lost, unclear” not knowing any more descriptive terms for what I wanted. The first search page allowed me to select “Images.”
A huge selection came up, and I could click Show More Results at the bottom of the page. Click on any illustration and see what the information says. Some will be stock photos with an embedded watermark. That means you’ll need to read about licensing, extended license, additional multi-seat License. Copyright info is on that company’s page. Click to view Photos, Vectors, Footage, Audio, Mobile, Pricing. See the company’s phone number, live help number.
One photo I looked at had a tiny icon in the upper right hand of the page. Here’s a screen shot of the list that came up.
It was fun, clicking to see how the various languages came up in the illustrations.
Try it out on some of your blogging or emails. Your family will be impressed with your knowledge of other languages.
Looking up “shepherd and sheep” I scrolled down and when I’d gotten to the 64th picture I found a photo of my son Peter, holding his sheep on his shoulder. I had posted it to my blog, www.EncouragingU.blogspot.com months ago and they’ve put it up for anyone to help themselves to the picture. Clicking on it brings up that page in my blog, with the verses I posted with it. And on the Google Image page a person can click, bringing it up as JPG 800x533 pixels.
We hadn’t thought that it would be automatically available to anyone else. Hopefully, if someone wanted a copy they’d write and ask for permission. Maybe that’s wishful thinking, on my part.

What do do with a 10 year-old that’s still running, but is before Intel? We saw the PC column in Courier about recycling or donating. Asked for info from Prez Art Gorski and John Carter. John was first to reply, suggesting we donate it to the DAV (Disabled American Veterans) in Prescott. A very knowledgeable man there was happy to take it, and we’re delighted to be able to help someone that way.
