Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

Lush Eden

I had my own wee garden, where grew the most lush and sweetest tomatoes on the vine.

Amazing it was to witness the sun shine its Divine rays of Love into the misty quiet hours of the summer morning where time seemed to stand still for just a little while.

The voluptuous tomatoes with their delicious fresh scent filled the air. The left-over dew drops from the cool of the evening before, sparkled with violet light and garnet crystal shimmer.

Green ones and ripe, I would inspect them all for their perfectness

then place them in a wooden basket. With a breath deep into my soul

the fresh moist air embraced the senses with all the sounds and smells of the wondrous summer morn.

Filled I was with great gratitude for these special moments shared in my garden with glorious Mother Nature.

The tomatoes once washed, would be placed whole and still on the vine in the little deep freeze to ensure that there would always be fresh tomatoes in my little larder.

The series 'Lush Eden' celebrates with honor and gratitude our Loving universe for providing the healing rays of sun that make nature’s gifts grow so abundantly.

No pop ups or underlined highlighted words what so ever Steve.  Such a relief.

You have been so gallant to just jump right in here with your tech wizardry, God Bless your shiny heart.

Glad to help, and glad that worked out.

Hello Steve,

I'm using AVG internet security, as well as update regularly.  A report has been sent in to Google who post prompt pages and suggestions to research and try out eliminating the ad words and pop ups, have also done an anti spam sweep, nothing showed up in the results. as I am still seeing them.

So I took your advice and downloaded Firefox from the link you provided below.

I am about to start a scan.

Many thanks for all your advice, you are indeed most helpful and accommodating.

I will let you know how it is all fairing shortly.

Hi Imelda,

If you use Firefox as a browser there are a couple fee add-ons that work well, that's a good start, but I guess the main thing is if ads are being attached to your/my/all of our content as i don't want that at all, I don't want my works selling stuff that I have no connection with so if they point to ads we should figure out if it's the sites being a part of it or what.

You can get Firefox at:
then after installing browse their add ons (only install through them make sure it's the mozilla site) and you can find safety ones, privacy and ad blockers and all kinds of ones.

Plus I'd make sure to use a good anti virus, anti spyware and like you mentioned firewall and update regularly.

Glad you like the music, I actually have a bunch on here, if you go to my page and click "videos" there are I think 31 or so. Or you can go to the project site

Hello Jeanne,

Many thanks for jumping in here ~Big Smile

It is a great relief to know that my postings are not altering the view of others.  These little things are crazy here on this side of the fence.

With the taking of Steve's advice, since Google seems not to have a solution, I will research the internet for an ad blocker... not too sure about how to go about it but it is seems that this might indeed be a possible solution.

I have checked the firewall and all seems well there.

Blessings to your new vegetable garden and you the planter of seeds.

Hello Imelda,

I don't have any ad-blockers... and I don't see any ads either. So sorry... I am not any help in that regard.

Love the veggies... and an am loking forward to planting another garden... as soon as this cold weather subsides.

Hello Steve,

Thank you for your advice about the pop-ups and ad words,  It seems to me that if they are not obvious to you then it must be only me that is seeing them which in turn is as you suggest that I must need to install a program to block them.  My computer was stripped clean recently and rebuilt with more memory.  That must be what it is.  

Even your posting here to me has the pop-ups and highlighted and underlined words such as the word beauty and account.

I do believe you hit the nail on the head with your suggestion to install an ad blocker program.  It is a great relief to know that they are not interfering with the site as I post.  You are a doll.

Your music is lovely, I managed to listen to the three you have posted here on AOAND.

So, I am off to do just that, find an ad blocker thanks to you.

God Bless and have a great day full of Light here on AOAND.

Hi Imelda,

I'm glad you like the photos, thank you for the kind words. I do try to find the best way to share the works of Mother Nature, but with beauty like that it's impossible to take a bad photo.

I am not sure which add words you meant, I know that some sites do run ads but I have so many ad blocker type programs on my computer that nothing like that ever gets through so I don't know how much I can help by sharing my observations. but I will ry if you give me any links or tell me what to look for specifically.
I do know that on some of the sites you can opt out of ads being on your page, they usually bury the instructions of how to do that deep in the privacy policy or somewhere plus they make you have to play around in your account to find where to change the setting, but I do know some you can block. Are there ads here on AOAND? If so where and what are they?
If you let me know that and any other sites I can let you know if I know about how to opt out of them. I know over time there have been a few places I have not used as I didn't want ads on my page.


I'll check out your other posts and works as I can, glad to have somehow wandered by and found this one.

If you have time feel free to check out my project site if you haven't already.

Thanks and Peace,

Hello Steve,

It is a most welcome note that you have left here on the 'Lush Eden' series and sharing of thoughts about Mother Nature.

It seems you also have a flavor for the beauty in the garden, I surely loved your beautiful photos that captured the individual character of the bloom. 

If I might be so bold, could you tell me if there were add words connected to all the key words of peace that are posted in the 'Lush Eden' note?

It seems there is quite a bit of ad words and annoying pop-ups happening from the posts that I have on various sites on the internet.  Working to remove them is most challenging indeed, it occurred to

me that perhaps they are only showing up to the person who posted the notes... I know wishful thinking on my part ~smile

Thank you so much for taking the time to peruse my sharings.

Looking forward to discovering more beauty in our world here at aoand.
