The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

I Just Realized Something....


I found out that I could print out any blog, question and or photo from this web site. For instance, my most recent blog together with responses is three pages long.So I will commence a project of creating my own personal GOY compendium, diary and calendar of sorts of my own favorite blogs, questions with answers and photos (including select favorites of other members too). It will be an enjoyable coffee table book for my home. There are no copyright problems since that type of proprietorship is nonexistent for anything posted on the site. The other advantage is that other GOYers have in the past and present have posted memorable blogs, given brilliant answers to gardening questions and captured unique garden photos which I can now assure at least for myself, by this method, not be lost should they decide to delete years of participation with this site and I have regretted their decision to do that very much. When I pass on the last thing I want to leave is a boring album of photos of my vacations. I would rather leave my thoughts in the form of written records and images of the goings on in my life. This can be done on this site and as I have now realized in “hard copy” too.

That will keep you busy for a bit! Its an interesting idea - should make a good collection for browsing later - especially if you are ever unable to access Goy for some reason! A Happy New Year (a bit early) to you!

Its a lovely idea but you are meant to own the copyright to any photo. But you can get round that by getting the poster's permission. You can use any of mine you wish.

I have printed off my list of garden plants before so they are in a folder just in case the computer crashes.

Holy Jumping Jehoshaphat!!! SBG! I totally missed the “terms of use” and the copyright rule not only applies to photos but other members comments too. The IT developers of this site state that they are the only ones to use members comments and photos for any use and in any form they see fit. I thank you for your gracious permission to use yours. SBG and Stera....Happy New Year!!!

Me too, you are welcome to use mine, Loosestrife. It's an open forum this site anyway.
Sounds a lovely idea!

Wonderful Kate. Of course, you all may partake of my thoughts and images too. The spirit that come from such generosity has reminded me of something that Steven Smith, who is the founder of one of my favorite rock bands -Aerosmith- said....if I have a lit candle and you have one that is not, it won’t grow any dimmer if you light yours from mine...

Thank you to you, too. Loved the “Aerosmith” lyrics!

A good idea Loosestrife!
Something to look back on one day!
When we had to leave our beloved Willow Cottage, I thought I would make an album of it and years later brings back happy memories instead of sad ones!
You are also welcome to use mine too!
Best wishes for the New Year!

Thank You Rose and Happy New Year too......I am at the point of my life where I take it a day at a time and I love the New Year because here is where my days start to get longer and brighter.
