Green Screen

GreenScreenAVSwithSoundBlaster  It is hard to do simple things when you are old.   I moved the desk and computer and everything else around in my bedroom/computer room.  It was hard.
  Back when I was young, in the early 1970s or was it the late 1960s I moved, in one day, our business (tropical fish shop) and our home in the same day by myself.
  A couple of "friends", two twin brothers that I went to high school with, happened be driving down the street and saw me out in the parking lot of the business and pulled into the parking lot.  I told them I could not visit that I had one day to move everything.  Did they offer to help?  No!
  So much for friendship.
  I moved the stuff in my room for a number of reasons.  One was to try and setup and use the green screen (see photo above).  
  No I do not own an iron.
  I own three video editing software programs, at least, Magix Movie Pro, Corel VideoStudio and AVS Video Editor.  I have no idea how to do the green screen.
  I know you get the video with the green screen in the background and then you pull in or drop in or something what you want to replace the green background.  Well I do not see how to do it.  I guess I will have to read the docs or watch a YouTube video on how to do it.

2014 SKYWARN Recognition Day

“On behalf of the members of the WX5FWD SKYWARN Team that works radios at the NWS, I want to wish all the members of the NCTC Link System a Happy Thanksgiving.
I also want to remind you of a Special Event coming on December 6. It is the 2014 SKYWARN Recognition Day.
SKYWARN Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service (NWS) and the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). It celebrates the contributions that volunteer SKYWARN radio operators make to the National Weather Service. During the day, SKYWARN radio operators visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world.
National information regarding SKYWARN Recognition Day is published at hamradio.noaa.gov, and for the Fort Worth office at wx5fwd.org
See the full announcement for the NWS–Fort Worth Office and WX5FWD at:
One of the ways that we will be making contacts is on the NCTC Link System. The link covers a lot of NWS-Fort Worth County Warning Area (46 counties). This should bring a greater awareness to the link, as the announcement was sent to amateur radio and emergency manager contacts in the CWA.
Thanks for all the hard work that you do in establishing and maintaining the link, and again have a Happy Thanksgiving.
Michael Heskett

Test Post of Google Docs (using cloud) and Plugmatter

Test of Plugmatter

I am trying something new out.  This is a test.  I am using Chrome and I Google Docs on the cloud.  I am typing this and then I am going to “Publish” this to Howard’s Notebook.
I am seeing if this will work to replace Windows Live Writer which I have been using for years to publish to different blogs.

So this is a test.
