I have had the privilege of serving on the Kewaskum 9/11 Memorial Committee and building the website for the Memorial. And would like to share it with you, in hopes that you can help and share it too!
The memorial, with a beam of steel recovered from the North Tower of the World Trade Center as its center piece, will be a place of reflection, to seek knowledge, and to honor the memories of those lost on September 11, 2001.
You can visit the website at:
There are a few ways you can help to raise funds for the memorial. By purchasing a Flag of Honor from the website, purchasing the book Just a Few Sleeps Away, by making a monetary Donation or by becoming a sponsor.
You can also help by sharing the website with others!
Hop on. Do Good.

If you have visited a few of the longer pages of my site, you've probably noticed that as you scroll down a tiny button appears in the lower right corner(the arrow button) that when clicked, will scroll you back up to the top of the page you are on.
It is called the 'Back to Top' App. If you haven't seen it before, it can be found on this page by scrolling down slightly. For those of you who are Weebly users, it's an element that I have added to the blog sidebar so it appears on the blog page, and every blog post.
It looks something like this:
As you can see from the screenshot above and the button I have on my page, the Back to Top button can be customized. Currently there are 40 different arrow types that you can use, but it's also got a number of other features as well.
Here are a list of Features:
I think that I should be quick to point out, for my fellow Weebly friends, the element can easily be added to any page of your site (I usually add the 'Element' at the very top of the page so it's easy to find in the Weebly editor). When adding the element to a blog page, you would want to add it to the sidebar. If you wanted the arrow to appear on every page of your website, the easiest thing to do would be to add it to the Footer.
You can view a demo here:
(note: the demo does not include all of the features) Things like; Positioning the Button, the Hover colors, Control when Button Shows, when it Fades In and Out and Scroll Speed are not demoed.

In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar. With two forks, or a mixer, mix butter in until it forms pea-sized crumbs. Pat the mixture into a 10 inch spring form pan. Bake at 350 for 10 - 15 minutes (until browned).
Cream the cheese with a mixer, scraping the bowl with a spatula several times to ensure the cheese is fully creamed.
When the cheese is softened, add the sugar, flour, and vanilla. Beat until mixture is consistent. Add the heavy cream, and eggs, and beat until the mixture is smooth.
Pour the filling into the spring pan.
Bake for one hour at 300 degrees and until the middle doesn't jiggle when nudged, and the top has slightly browned. Turn off oven. Remove cheese cake once oven has cooled (usually about 1/2 hour). Loosen the sides of the cheesecake from the pan with a small knife. Then remove the sides of the spring pan when cooled.
Place frozen blueberries on top of cake. Melt jelly and spoon over blueberries to glaze.
Chill until served.
Every day, we learn from the things that others do. In one way or another, whether right or wrong, we take what we see and use that information when making our own choices in life. We look to our elders and we ask our peers. What would they do? And with the web at our fingertips you can 'Google' just about anything or watch a video on YouTube on How To:.. So, why should building a website be any different?
If you are the do-it-yourself type, there are a number of places on the web where you can find helpful information for building your website. With this, I'll try to point out at least a few basic facts, maybe some unknowns and a couple of links to get you pointed in the right direction. If you need help with building your website, there are also a number of services and people such as myself that can help you with your individual needs. (So don't hesitate to Contact Me)
If it isn't immediately obvious, I've used Weebly to build my site so the examples are going to revolve around Weebly and their website builder. If you're not using Weebly don't fret, as I've noted above you can take the information found here and apply it to your own website.
