Hi Everyone,

This is quite a train of wallpapers I have here... pun intended. I don't often put up this many in one day. I uploaded them to celebrate my new group; "Traffic Signals nSigns." I've been wanting to start it since February, but I decided to wait until DN was back up & running again.

My first wallpaper is rather unusual, I know. Unfortunately, I made it out of necessity. If you do nothing else--- read the words in italics at the bottom of this purple wallpaper's description! What I have to say there will be of great interest to you, especially if you are planning to start any new DN groups.

There is one more wallpaper that I made out of necessity also. This one shows the Traffic Signals nSigns Group Avatar.

The rest are walls that I made especially for the group. I hope that you'll decide to join it! :D Here is the link in case you are interested...


One more thing. I've written a journal post that is relevant to the group... Very little to read... Most of it is... Wallpaper Pictures!!! Some of them might even be yours. Check and see if you may have walls that fit into this group uploaded already. :) Or you may get some fresh ideas for this group... many of these wallpapers are absolutely beautiful. Others are very humorous. At any rate, here's the journal link:


Have a wonderful week, everybody. I hope you decide to join the group. It's going to be fun to belong to!


Elaine :)

Dear Chris, the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of happiness, may all these be yours at Christmas.
Hugs from Luna!

Christmas in Bethlehem. The ancient dream: a cold, clear night made brilliant by a glorious star, the smell of incense, shepherds and wise men falling to their knees in adoration of the sweet baby, the incarnation of perfect love.

Lucinda Franks

I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.

Shirley Temple

We consider Christmas as the encounter, the great encounter, the historical encounter, the decisive encounter, between God and mankind. He who has faith knows this truly; let him rejoice.

Pope Paul VI

Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.

Dale Evans

Hi Everyone,

It's been a busy, but happy Summer for me-- which is the reason that I may not have been around to visit you for awhile. Well... mostly happy. Car problems that were not cheap kept me from seeing my 5 month old granddaughter for a couple of weeks, but at least the car is finally working again. :)

My job has been keeping me busy also. We are engraving a lot of Stainless Steel mugs right now. We have one type where each shrink wrapped mug must be unwrapped by hand before it is engraved. It's time consuming, and my hands are getting a little sore... but hey... it's a living! I can listen to any kind of music that I want to while I unwrap them too.:D

I try to upload at least 5 wallpapers a month. I uploaded one wall on July 4th. I tried to get more up here during the month, but things kept coming up. Finally, today, July 31st, I rushed these 5 wallpapers up here. I got them uploaded with less than 3 hours to spare; August 1st starts on Desktop Nexus at 8pm my time. (Michigan, USA) It feels great to have beaten the clock! :D I hope to get many more walls uploaded during the month of August, because I have a backlog now...stay tuned! lol

As you can see, I've got 3 Cows Group walls up in this bunch; and 2 of them are especially silly...:P :D If you aren't a member of the Cows Group yet, you should check it out. There is such an incredible variety of cow wallpapers in it scenic, unusual, cute, humorous, etc... I think this group has become one of the most interesting (and fun!) ones on Desktop Nexus! :D

I hope that you are having a great Summer also, or a great Winter, depending on where you live!

Elaine :)

PS. PUPPYDAWG/ROGER news is that there isn't that much right now. He is doing better, but has an annoying, chronic cough. I do think he could use your prayers. He wants to come back to Desktop Nexus, but he needs a new computer to do so. He has enough money, but he isn't very mobile. Hopefully, one of his relatives will be able to help him out with that soon. Believe me, he misses everybody!
