Sending in Stories or Images
Regarding anything you might like to write about:
The door is wide open for good experiences, bad experiences, regrets, "thank
yous," or a straight-forward recording of history or SPB folk lore. It would be great if you could
email your pages, but if you
can't, typewritten pages by US mail is fine. Also, the
forum at groups.yahoo.com/group/pascalalumni-nyc
would be a good place to publish them. The advantage is that they will go
online immediately. Lately, it has taken me many months to get around to
doing updates to this site.
Photos & other images for this site:
Unfortunately, given my time constraints, the only photos I am soliciting
and accepting now are group graduation pictures and anything showing the
priests, nuns, school, church or neighborhood that would be of general
interest to the wider SPB classmate audience. If you have such images,
please use these directions to send them in:
- Stick them in an envelope and drop it in the mail (contact
for address). I find that the Post Office gets
a bum rap and are pretty reliable. You might want to sandwich your shots in between
two pieces of corrugated however. And please be sure to include some notes
describing the pictures (street locations, and dates if possible).
- If you have a scanner (assuming your pictures are black and white) scan them
"Grayscale" or "Black & White Photo" (or
whatever is appropriate) at 150 dots per inch, 100% size, and save as a
PNG file. Save them on your computer and email them to me (maximum 5
MB per email; contact
for address) as an Attachment.
- If you don't have a scanner, go to a place like Kinko's and have them scan your photos. Follow
the instructions above. Should questions arise, go with the advice of the technician. You can then
download the files to your computer and email them as an Attachment
me for address).
- You could also send the files on a CD by U.S. mail
me for address). Please include some descriptions of the photos.
Your personal photos and images:
Photos of your
childhood, present life, family, class reunions, etc. can be uploaded to
one of the many free photo album web sites, such as picasa.google.com
or photobucket.com. After doing
can then go to our forum at groups.yahoo.com/group/pascalalumni-nyc
and post a note about them and include the URL (web address) of your collection.
Folks could then follow your link to see the photos. This grouping I put on picasaweb.google.com
might demonstrate what can be done with this easy to use technology. Make sure to click
"Slideshow." If you have any problems mastering this
and I'll try to walk you through it.
Good luck and happy trails,
