And This Past Week….

10 Jun

The Rainy Season!

June 1 came and I think, so did the rains.  So far it hasn’t been what I was expecting but it is early days yet.  So far about 60% of the days of this month have been rainy.  Many of those days were accompanied by lightning, thundering, power outages, water outages.  But what I had been led to believe was that it would get so wet that our clothes wouldn’t dry.  Not yet so far….but like I said – it is early on in the season.

The days have also seemed to be hotter.  Even I am having trouble with staying cool and that hasn’t been much of an issue until now.  The breeze isn’t even cooling me down, especially as it isn’t always coming in the front door.

On another note – this past week I also took the third stab at making tortillas – and I think I was pretty successful.  I had asked one of the locals how she makes her tortillas – and learned a little secret – use oil instead of shortening  – and I think I missed a step last time – or maybe I just had a different recipe.   🙂

The circus came to town this week and is supposed to be here for 10 days.  The first show was scheduled for Friday evening.  A car drove around town Thursday and Friday announcing the circus.  People from the surrounding villages hopped on their buses, or caught rides in passing pick-ups.  People rented rooms in various small hotels in anticipation of a late night.  Actually, I think the buses don’t go back to the villages that late.  So all plans made….

And they cancel the circus on Friday night.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin
