Sharing youtube Videos Now a quick note about sharing youtube videos, this one is on youtube.com as https://youtu.be/IGBrDBbynd8 right. That makes the ID of that video be IGBrDBbynd8 ok? So to have just the thumbnail to share (like is on the page now at http://route6tour.com/Route6californ.htm Always start with http://img.youtube.com/vi/ image-ID-goes-here/0.jpg ok? then were it says image-ID-goes-here you paste in the IGBrDBbynd8 ID for that video, and then YouTube will serve up the thumbnail from their site for that piece. Something I learned and share here now as part of 'paying my dues' Yes, the code is JUST the image-ID-goes-here , keep the 0.jpg too ok? Have a good weekend.

On Google+ @ https://plus.google.com/u/1/+GuyCook/posts The first question: What do I do first? (in setting up their new website) The answer might well be this simple: Planning Session All good websites come from a good plan. More on that @ the About tab on my Google+ page
Help your Website Everyday Have A Right Start - via Guy R Cook
The answer might well be this simple: Planning Session
All good websites come from a good plan. Sounds redundant, but it’s true. If you want to create a good and solid website, you need a good and solid plan. I know it’s hard to do, and I know you want to keep poking and playing with this exciting program, but it is time to take a break away from your computer and turn to the old paper and pencil. That’s right, we’re going back in time to when people actually wrote things down.
On a piece of notebook paper, or whatever is lying around, describe your site.
Take five to twenty minutes to come up with a purpose for your site, or better yet, call it your Mission Statement.
Answer the following questions:
What am I going to do with this?
Who is going to read this?
What kinds of information will I be posting?
Why am I doing this?
Who am I doing this for?
How often am I going to be posting and adding information?
Now, compile this information into a paragraph so it looks like this:
This website will be dedicated to X, Y, and Z, and cover the topics of A, B, and C. The audience will
be __________ ________________ _______. I will be adding posts every _____________ about ________ _______ ______________.
I am doing this because _____________ _____________ __________________.
