Back and working on the walls

Here's what I decided to do on the wall. We didn't (mostly me) do such a professional job on the drywall joints and you could see where they were because of the way the light comes is, so I decided to try to downplay them by painting stripes. I like them a lot, but I'm going to live with them a bit before I decide they don't need to be toned down. I played with the contrast and brightness of this picture and I got it just about right, but we'll see.

I had a very enlightening time learning about blind technology in Portland last week. Lots of good stuff. The other participants were pretty fun. We stayed in a "cottage" (read dorm) on campus. Actually quite nice. Back to work tomorrow. I may paper the other wall, or it may wait just one more day.

I'm trying to learn how to make a simple relational database for my recipes--I know, not enough to do yet. I downloaded OpenOffice--any suggestions for a good tutorial? If I find one I'll post the link.

Hey Mary,
I like the striped walls. I've been thinking of doing that in one of my bathrooms. Did you use painter's tape? I'm stripping the wall paper in there. YUCK. Then I'm going to paint it. I've thought about sponge painting the areas between the colors. Kinda like the fabrics we use in quilting.
