This page displays an up-to-date listing of changes and additions to my website.   It is a good place to check first when visiting Recesses of My Mind to see if anything's different from your last visit.  If I don't put a hyperlink for something new here, head to the section or page it describes or use your imagination to find it!

  • Created a page for Words of the Day from Transparent Language services, including Italian, French, German, and Spanish.  My own page makes it easier to see all four languages at the same time rather than having to navigate their website.   (Some browsers may throw script errors, but I can't help it; it's code they gave me to use.)

  • Added two new paintings to my Watercolor page.  I'm not crazy about the English Cottage, but I like my McGuireville Rest Stop.  It was an amazingly beautiful oasis in the desert on my Sedona/Grand Canyon trip and had the most colorful cactus!

July 5, 2008

  • Added 26 watercolors to my Watercolor page.   Many are somewhat recent, but some are a few years old.   Hard to believe I hadn't posted any since 2004!    Yikes!   I need to paint more!

  • Fixed all of the Hacked pages I could find that were ruined thanks to some jerk with nothing better to do than hack every site on my hosting company's web servers.  If you happen to discover any more pages that were hacked, please let me know what you were trying to access via email here: Webmistress.

October 17, 2004

  • Removed the couple of not-so-flattering photos of yours truly with Terry Madden.

October 9, 2004

  • Posted some photos of new watercolors from the San Diego workshop I just took with Terry Madden, PBS Host of "Watercolor Workshop".  Includes a couple of not-so-flattering photos of yours truly.   Oh well.

September 25, 2004

September 18-19, 2004

September 5, 2004

  • Posted four new watercolors from a painting flurry.   One I finished in class this week ("Hot Chocolate and Old Lace"), two I painted yesterday ("Heron and Dragonflies" and "Orchids"), and one I painted today ("Presidio on the Hill").

August 29, 2004

  • Posted a new watercolor I painted today, called "The Old Barn".  I don't think I like the out-building in the back, but the rest of it's not bad.  And, at least I painted....

August 28, 2004

  • Posted ten watercolors painted from April to August, mostly from David's class.  Not only had it been awhile since I'd updated this webpage, it had been awhile since I had painted anything.
  • I created a separate website for that watercolor teacher, mostly to get something up and running for him "quickly", but check it out by clicking here: David Musser Fine Art.
  • Although I haven't been mentioning it here, I have been managing to post photos and scores from the last several monthly shooting matches at Rainbow, whether or not I attended.  August offered a mini-shotgun class as well, so I've posted some photos of that that you might want to check out (not including a formal posting of the photo of my bruise from mis-mounting the weapon several times).

April 10, 2004

  • Posted final version of my Easter greeting and egg-decorating Flash creation and added it to my main Flash start page as well.  (For the critical among you, this now includes the final Easter basket having as many of the decorated versions the user/player made as the basket would hold, which was no easy programming feat, I might add.)

March something, 2004

February 25, 2004

  • Updated my Whack-A-Worm Game yet again (to give user choice of turning off music in three places and to fix the mallet cursor problem). Also put links on the other pages to refer to the latest and greatest rather than just removing those pages.

February 23, 2004

  • Updated my Whack-A-Worm Game to add checkbox for user to turn off music if desired and to try a special mallet for the mouse cursor.

February 22, 2004

  • Updated my Hangman Game with a new and improved version (now with ability to replay, slightly new ending sequences, etc.; done in Flash MX 2004!).
  • Updated my Whack-A-Worm Game to fix some late-clicking problems and to add background sound (though somewhat annoying).

February 14, 2004

January 18, 2004

  • Added new Hangman Game (done from scratch all by myself in Flash MX 2004!).  I can't figure how to make it replay correctly yet, so you'll have to hit your browser's refresh (F5) to play more than once.
  • I also updated my Flash start menu with Hangman and fixed a couple of recent additions.

January 11, 2004

December 31, 2003

  • Added a new mini Flash creation for a friend who was missing snow.  (It uses Robert Penner's snowfalling in a three-dimensional particle system and has dynamic interactive wind force, by the way.  I just added cute graphics and music and other fun stuff like that.)

December 28, 2003

  • Added special variation on yesterday's Flash creation (see link below) for those of us with memory problems.  (Check out the one added yesterday first, though, or you won't understand this one nor find it very amusing.)
  • Added these two game versions to the main Flash start page.
  • Updated Site Map (Art and Creativity/Macromedia Flash Animations) with above changes.

December 27, 2003

  • Added new Flash creation for Happy New Year matching game and message.  (It may prompt you to download the latest Flash player, but if you don't already have it, it's safe to get it because you'll need it for other sites eventually, and more of my Flash creations.)

December 17, 2003

  • Added newly introduced yellow pin award to the Rainbow Range match's Pin Awards page.

December 13, 2003

December 6, 2003

  • Added 50 or so photos in daylight and nighttime for my outside Christmas decorations for this year, plus a photo of the street sign our street won last year in the City competition. Check it all out, plus notice how nice the weather is!!

November 15, 2002

November 10, 2002

October 27, 2002

  • Added a new section that will chronicle my millionth attempt at dieting.   It will be of little interest to most, but in the end, when either I'm dead and the authorities from CSI want to find out why, or when I'm successful and the tabloids want to find out how I did it, there'll be a place to go.    It's called Diary of a Dieter...
  • Posted October's scores from the monthly Rainbow Combat match.  Though I just missed winning a pin, dang it, check out how well I did on four of the five stages and finished above several of the usual guys who always out-shoot me!

October 19, 2002

  • Added a section recapping the recent Springfield Armory/PMC XTreme Duty (XD) Skills Challenge shooting match held last weekend in Norco, CA. This includes photos, including one of me with Jim Scouten, the host of the TV show "American Shooter", stage descriptions and my assessment of my shooting on each, and scores of a few of my pals (including rankings by stage).

Sometime in September and October of 2002

Later in August, 2002

Saturday, August 3, 2002

  • The gap in time shown here (August 2002 to December 2001) would indicate I've been dead or in a coma!   Actually, I've been updating the site only insofar as the part of it dedicated to the Temecula Valley Art League and Rainbow Range shooting activities are concerned, but neglected to list them here.   So, for various up-to-date or equally out-of-date findings, surf around yourselves starting at these links:   Art League;   Rainbow Range.
  • Changed email link on all pages to remove the ever-troublesome Clubnet account.
  • Modified some TVAL pages to reflect Art League is dark for the summer, new officers have been elected, etc.

Monday, December 31, 2001

  • Removed the Temecula Valley Art League link from the Recesses Home Page. (To access that part of the site, go directly to www.temeculavalleyartleague.org.)
  • Added a page for theDecember 2001 Results for the Rainbow Range Combat Match.
  • Made a separate page for the Combat Match pin awards and their criteria.

  • Added several (21) new jokes. (I just added them to the top of each category where applicable; it's not necessarily obvious which they are. I have tons more, but I'm not sure if/when I'll get to them.)

Saturday, August 25, 2001

Monday (evening), August 20, 2001

  • Added five Watercolors from earlier this year.
  • Updated list of Books I've Read (since I gave in and actually read not one, but TWO books during my recent recovery from surgery!).

  • Added a counter to this What's New page to see how many people visit here!

  • Added a page of my sculptures (which includes a photo of my sister's ceramics dog bowls, since it was easiest to put it here for now).
  • Modified slightly the wording on the sketches page. (E.g., the horse head is in charcoal pencil, not pen and ink; what was I thinking?!)

Sunday, June 25, 2000

  • Added two new watercolors and two old watercolor pencil creations (at the bottom of the watercolor page).

Monday, June 5, 2000

Saturday, June 3, 2000
