Our Church Website

Lately I have been doing a lot of work on our new church website, Grace Baptist Reformed. Today I did quite a bit with it, since we where at our friend's the Castille family today for fellowship, it was convenient to work on it after lunch while we where all together and could figure out what needed to be done.
Since I am the "computer dude" at our house right now, the job of website building has fallen to me. I really don't mind, since I enjoy playing with webcode.
Though I must say, seeing a long line of code characters in my sleep now is somewhat disturbing.
I still have to run to my older brother for help every now and then, and I have grown quite close to google as well (please don't stone me!) but all in all, I think I'm starting to get quite familiar with this language like so:




And like so:



Copy and paste has befriended me as well...but don't tell anyone I said that!

Fun isn't it?

The difference between "Dolce" and "Dulce"

Since there tends to be some confusion concerning the two, and which one is the correct spelling, I am going to help you understand the difference between the two.

Actually, there's a big difference!

Dolce is Italian for sweet. It is a common musical term, and often used when one is to play the music in a sweet manner.

This is what the dictionary has to say about it.

dolce |ˈdōl ch ā|
adverb & adjective Music
(esp. as a direction) sweetly and softly.
ORIGIN Italian, literally ‘sweet.’

Dulce is another thing entirely. Dulce does mean sweet, but it's meaning is slightly different since it is directed at food.

The dictionary says this about it.

dulce |ˈdəlsā|
noun
a sweet food or drink, esp. a candy or jam. [ORIGIN: Spanish.]
adjective
sweet or mild. [ORIGIN: from Latin dulcis.]

Now you know the difference between the two...and why my blog says Dolce instead of Dulce! I am quite certain after all, that my music is not food!

Cake!

This is a cake Elise made. Isn't it elegant? Not much more I can say. Not that you would read it anyway, you'd be too busy looking at the pictures, so I won't say anything more!
