Removing Visual Deals in Google Chrome

I did not have this problem on my 9 year old Windows Vista laptop, but since I upgraded to a new laptop, with Windows 8, these new little ad bars were popping up on pages.  They look like this:


or this:

That entire row of washing machines is there because of "Visual Deals".  This is a search page for "How Do I remove Visual Deals from Chrome"  :-)

Visual Deals is an add on to Chrome extensions.  From what I have read, they are a violation of google's policies, but they still happen.  Two of the most common extensions are Translate, and Pinterest.

You do not have to remove the extension to remove Visual Deals.

In google chrome, click on the three bars (menu) on the top right of the page.  Choose Tools/Extensions

Under Pinterest, Click options.


Choose Change, the enabled will turn to Disabled.  Close the window, and voila - annoying Visual Deals ads are gone!

Replacing The Broken Glass on Our Patio Table -

We have horrible winds here.  One storm picked up our large patio table & smashed it sideways against the deck railing, shattering the glass top.
After looking at a couple of options, I bought a piece of plywood (they cut it to size for me even) and a remnant of linoleum from our local flooring store.
We should have sealed the plywood with an all weather paint first. 
Then we attached the linoleum with contact glue.  The entire project cost me about $35 and took minutes to complete. :-)

Homiletics Worksheet

One of my favorite seminars at BSF was on Homiletics.  I love the process of studying the bible through Homiletics.  Recently my friend Natalie taught our Sunday School class how to do homiletics, and again I found I really enjoyed the process, and I decided I wanted to use it more frequently.

There is a great "Crash Course In Homiletics" here - http://www.christinakline.com/homiletics-crash-course/
Earlier this summer our Pastors wife suggested, in our Womens Sunday School Class, that we choose one epistle and read it every day, for a month.  I love this bible reading plan.  I have used many plans over the years, and have read the bible cover to cover a few times now, so the idea of really learning one epistle at a time felt like a good next step for me.
For the month of August, I am reading Colossians every day.  It is only 4 chapters, a quick, easy read every morning.  I decided the 4 chapters made it perfect to use homiletics for my weekly study, doing one chapter each week…

How to Make a Chalkboard Graphic

I'm going to assume you already have a basic knowledge of some sort of graphics program.  Gimp is free.  I use Paint Shop Pro - because I have used it for many years, and I lack the attention span (& budget!) to keep up with photoshop.  

First, The Background.

Next The Fonts:

This site has links to all of the fonts on the poster above http://colormemeg.com/2013/01/free-chalkboard-fonts-printable.html (most of my favorites are on her list, so I didn't see any sense in replicating it. Plus, she did it better than I would have.)
I personally recommend going to Dafont and d…
