greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – December 1, 2017

Starting off the last month of the year on December 1st and trying to really get used to this but babysitting came to the forefront for three days this week doing the greendougherty.blog and a lot of time spent putting out an updated Out West Medical Employers took over most of my time.

So, with that purpose in mind, here goes with this weeks Friday Roundup.

Latest How To Video

Is It Green?

Palms of the Dougherty Garden

Yorkville Resources on the Net 

Nostalgia

Irisha or Italiano

So You Served

So You Worked for Corporate America

Oldies (Doo Wop) Music

A Few Funnies From The Net

Jobs Out West

 

NOTE: Also, I’m still working on doing an intro for the assorted groups on Facebook under my Admin and putting a new intro for each group and the respective videos that I have related to that facebook group. Like I said, use the comment section to engage other visitors who leave comments on the videos and not only the facebook postings.

We’re getting close to getting a weekly rhythm on these blogs and the weekly roundup on Friday. I got thousands of pictures and tunes to share and hopefully I can find a way to fund the day to day operations. Having side dinero would give me peace of mind.

greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – November 10, 2017

First off, today, November 10, 2017, is the U.S. Marine  Corps birthday, the 242nd Birthday since its founding in 1775. Oorah!

Now, getting back to the Friday Roundup.

The first thing that I’m concentrating on is doing a little editing on my KA Favorite Tunes, or, as I know them as Kick-Ass Favorite Tunes. Right now, we’re at 100+ but I know for sure that this list will grow if I get support (Subscribers).

Just added a few funnies from my email from Jim.

That covers this week’s updates to Marty’s Blogs. I’ll be adding tunes to the Oldies (Doo Wop) Music over time as I go through my music collection and look for the same tunes on YouTube.

We’re getting close to getting a weekly rhythm on these blogs and the weekly roundup on Friday. I got thousands of pictures and tunes to share and hopefully I can find a way to fund the day to day operations. Having side dinero would give me peace of mind.

How to Use Movie Maker to Make a Movie for YouTube – October 6, 2017

Marty Dougherty #greendougherty #yorkville #doughertygarden (#doughertypalms #doughertypalms and #palmsofthedoughertygarden#nostalgia #oldies(doowop)music #irishaoritaliano #jobsoutwest #corporateamerica #lifeintheusmarines #afewfunnies – doherty167 on  Pinterest

_______________________________________________________
I’m in the process of adding Cards and End Cards to some of the videos that I have on YouTube. It’s a long, tedious job but the end game is to see if I can increase viewership to my garden videos. If I can crack the system, I’ll play around with the Yorkville pictures that I can convert to video and see if I can duplicate the effort in that group of pictures and share with everyone.

 

Before I get to that section of the YouTube and working with Cards and End Cards, I’ll introduce the process of trying to make a movie via Movie Maker and all the fun I was having trying to understand (WTF) what was going on while in Movie Maker.
First, I open up Movie Maker and click on Add Pictures
01 Add Pictures
Note: I use a program called Snag It that enables me to take a picture of the page, or, portion of the page that I am working on at the moment.
I’m working on the next issue of my garden blog and will be using this Movie Maker to issue my Dougherty Garden Blog. I’ll be using 19 pictures from my garden taken on October 5, 2017.
02 All Pictures Added
This is how the Movie Maker looks like with the pictures added. Notice that the pink area below the picture shows a description “DCIM\100SPORT” which I believe is the description on each picture assigned by my camera that I am using. I’ll show you how to change that description.
03 Sample Picture
This is the first picture and I have to use another tool in order to catch a few steps that are not available to use with Snag It. This is where my camera comes out to capture what I can’t grab a picture of with Snag It.
04 Click on Properties in Dialog Box
Right-click on the mouse and go down to the Properties and click on Properties.
05 Change Description to Picture
Forgive the clarity of this picture but I’ll try to get a better picture before I finish this blog. For now, the Title is: DCIM\100SPORT. It is here where you can change the description to the picture to the one that you want to show up in Movie Maker as the name of the picture.
06 Description Changes
As you can see in the above picture, the Title of the picture is now correct. The only trouble is that this feature must be changed before you Add the pictures to Movie Maker. One of the things that I do now is to make sure that the Title of the picture is correct in the Title section of the Properties. I was tending to have problems with my Movie Maker when I had to add the name to the picture in Movie Maker.
This was one of the problems that I was having and it was a headache for me. Now, when I do a project that involves pictures, I make sure that the Title is complete and accurate for all the pictures before I add them to Movie Maker.
07 Title of all Pictures Changed
As you can see, all of the Titles of these pictures are now complete and in Movie Maker. Now, I can continue with the next step in the process of how I make a movie of my pictures in the garden.
This will be a simple video of how to make a simple video. I’ll do the basics of getting a Title and the Credit for a video to keep it simple.
08 Click on Title
Using the Home Index, click on Title and a Blank Black Box will appear on your Movie Maker for you to use to enter the Title of your movie. Click on the Black Box and “My Movie Title” will appear and you can change that to the name of the movie you are working on.
09 Title of the Movie
I made the change to “Today in the Dougherty Garden” as the title of my movie in Movie Maker. I normally use a date with my blog but for simplicity’s sake, I’ll just do the Title for now.
10 Credits for Movie
This section is for adding Credits to the end of the video.
DCIM100SPORT
Drop Down Menu for End of Video Use
Sorry about the blurriness of the picture but I’m using a hand camera to take these pictures of the screen. Snag It doesn’t capture the picture. When I click on Credits, I get the Drop Down Menu. Then, when I click on Snag It, the Drop Down menu disappears. So, I have to use the camera to catch the Drop Down Menu.. I’ll try a Copy and Paste on another screen later to see if that will work.
12 Credit Screen
Credit Screen
13 Director Screen
Directed By Screen
14 Starring Screen
Starring Screen
15 Filmed Screen
Filmed on Location Screen
16 Soundtrack Screen
Soundtrack Screen
The above pictures, End Screen pictures, can be altered in any manner to let you tell your viewers anything about the video and who produced it and add further information that you would like the viewer to see. You can not add any live links at this point in these Credits. That can be accomplished, to a degree using, Cards and End Screen Annotations.
The Cards and End Screen Annotations are primarily YouTube tools that lets you promote other Channels and Videos, your Playlist or Videos on the Playlist.
The first of the end of your video starts with the Credits Screen. Everything that you see on the screen can be changed or adjusted…fonts, size of fonts and what you want to do as Credits…you can even change Credits to another word. It’s all up to you and what you want to say on each one of these screens.
Again, for simplicity’s sake, I’ll go through the Credits that I use on this video for my purpose. You can get creative on your end and do whatever you want to and change or add as many Credits as you want.  All you have to do is change the name of the page and what the Credits are for.
Link for the Finished Video on the Dougherty Garden
For now, this is as simple as it gets for making a movie out of still pictures. If you are making a movie from a movie, which I have not done so far, this is all about making a movie from pictures. My purpose here was to show how to do a movie with pictures.  I have to do videos in the near future and will tackle that in a future blog and video.
For now, I’ll convert this blog into a video and possibly add some additional comments in the video about this procedure.

Just had our insurance adjuster look at our back yard and found out why we may not get a penny on hurricane damage because the damage to the yard damaged our yard not a neigbor’s yard. Here’s a picture of what happened in the Dougherty Garden from Hurricane Irma on September 10, 2017.

The Dougherty Garden – Hawaiian Ti Plant – September 6, 2017

Featured

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of the more popular plants in the Dougherty Garden is that of the Hawaiian Ti plant. The Hawaiian Ti plant has two versions in the Dougherty Garden. onw is the green leafed version and the other is the pink leafed version.

Scientific Name: Cordyline fruiticosa

Common Name: Hawaiian Ti

Over the years, I have produced a few videos on the Hawaiian Ti plant and here are the lniks to these videos.

COMING SOON: Recent video of the Hawaiian Ti plants growing in the Dougherty Garden, including young plants.

Pink Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. This is part of the Cordyline series of plants. Most of this series of plants have the tell tale trunk.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Green Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. You can see from this picture this is not a leggy plant.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The pink version of the Hawaiian Ti plant add a bit of color to the Dougherty Garden. What I love about this plant is that if somebody wants to grow one of these plants, all I have to do is make a cutting and dust the bottom with some rooting hormone and pot it up and in a few weeks we have a new Hawaiian Ti plant. You can even take this cutting and place the cutting in a glass of water and in a short operiod of time, roots develop.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Seed pods from a green leafed Hawaiian Ti plant.

At this point in  time I labeled the plant #742. Here are a few cuittings that I had taken from a Hawaiian Ti plant that had a leggy look.  I cut a section away asnd cut them into several section and potted them in this pot.

greendougherty.Blog – Today in the Dougherty Garden – September 3, 2017

Featured

The first in the Dougherty Garden from the new greendougherty.Blog featuring a post from Today in the Dougherty Garden. Since I’m working with a limited library, grab the pictures as I’ll delete older piuctures so that I don’t overload the library. Cutting costs on this end. Also, Today in the Dougherty Garden will combine all plants (palms, flowers, tropical plants, and then some…) into one blog and I’ll try and do a video of each blog. Enjoy.

My three unknown plants at the moment. So many plants change hands over time that one forgets to write down the name and we’re subjected to searching the internet for plant names. I’ll do a blogs on just these plants the next time because they are so unusual.
