    I've not got the ability to do a video, but have a powerpoint. I'm not overly tech savvy and am trying to get some narration onto it. How do I upload it? I don't have a youtube account.

    @Alison That is a great question. I almost did PowerPoint, but wanted audio, so that became a non-option for me when I couldn't figure out how to mesh the two. If you could do narration with it, you got me beat.

    I will see if I can figure it out. Have you tried either the picture/file/mountain scene icon or the file icon in the comment box to try to upload it?

    In the meantime, @Marjory Wildcraft @Jimerson Can you help?

    **A reminder that you can vote on more than one video. I am not sure if everyone realizes that, so I thought that its worth mentioning. But, you can only have one vote per video...unless you want to upgrade the vote or (eep!) downgrade your vote, but you can't vote continuously like on the popular singing reality shows (that, I think, is just silly).

    If you like more than one video, you can show support by voting for them in one of the three ways mentioned in the OP.

    Two days left!

    I've managed to get the audio on my powerpoint and zipped the file, I've found that it will try and upload it via the link icon on the comment section but it says the file is too big.

    Any suggestions?

    It's a quick powerpoint with narration.

    @Alison That was all I had. πŸ˜• I hoped it would help you.

    Hopefully @Marjory Wildcraft or @Jimerson picks up on this soon to help get your presentation up.

    THere is a way to make a video out of a power point. I'm not up on the specifics, but many of tthe presenters at our Summits do it... Hey @Jimerson got any help here?

    This is such a great idea!! @goodvibesedu was my favourite for being so creative in an urban space and getting kids involved. I also used to run some community gardens on abandoned lots and it's so great.

    @Garden Girl your video was amazing! I loved the song too! So creative.

    @erikawinterton Aw, that's too bad. It would have been great to see what you've done.

    That duck is funny. She got nicknamed "Periscope." She was the first one who started doing this, now each will stick their head out if they are curious.

    She was pretty shy at first. When she saw me taking a video, she just had to hide.

    They will stick their heads out to take a look around, to drink rain water & eat snow or grauple (that snow that's like bitty styrofoam balls), all around the hole's perimeter.

    I wanted to put a short video of a fluffy chick swinging by its beak from a large red shoelace (it found a mighty big worm & wasn't sharing!) but the video was nowhere to be found. πŸ™

    @LaurieLovesLearning that is too bad. I would have loved to see your chick too! Maybe I'll put out a video on youtube and share anyways. Even though the contest deadline is over. :-)

    @LaurieLovesLearning thanks for teaching me e new word! (Grauple).

    PS Periscope is an hilarious name for a duck.

    @mgray11 It is such an interesting word for such a unique thing. I really like the word. I think it is entertaining.

    Periscope came by her name honestly, as you could see. We also used to have a cat named Slinky who, when quite young, was pushed down stairs by an older kitten. It went down head, bum, head, bum. We could hear the sounds it made as it happened, so went to check. One end sounded softer than the other. This happened more than once.

    We also had a hen named Lena. She was the last of a small flock that continued to suffocate each other. We found her sitting on top of her last "friend" under a bush. We figured that she couldn't suffocate herself. So, she got a name. Her name came from a phrase one might use when learning a certain sound when studying German. This sound was repeated 3 times in the sentence. It came from a phrase that said (translated), "Lena has nice chicken legs." She had nice clean pink legs. So, she got the name! She was an excellent daily layer of extra large eggs and lived a very long life.

    Our animals can get unique names here, but there is always a good/unique story behind each one that earns those.
