The easy way is to just embed a PDF document in a Weebly document. This uses weebly to deliver the PDF document to the reader in visual form without having to do much of anything. You need to use the Scribd Document element type in Weebly. Just drag the Scribd Document element to your document and follow the instructions.
The hard way of recreating a formatted document is to deconstruct the document into it's text and image components and then rebuild it using the Weebly mechanisms. Of course this is what we wish an automatic translation program would do for us since it is so simple to describe its behavior. However, formatted documents are not as simple to understand as it appears. So, here is what I did to reproduce Alex's travelog (or at least 10 days of it):
6/21, Weds: First day's drive finished. We're in Walterboro SC.
6/22, Thurs: We're settled for the night in Staunton VA. Today we visited the Pearl Fryor topiary garden (a private residence I learned about from the Atlas Obscura, a wonderful book my wonderful daughter gave me for my last birthday).
6/23, Fri: Arrived in Sciota PA, checked into a timeshare condo, were joined by all our children and grandchildren, and went to the first day of a 3 day family reunion (descendants of my maternal grandparents) at Pocono Lake.
6/24, Sat: Lunch and dinner with lots of Smith family relatives. Great job by Derek Savage and Tom Smith (and their wives as well, I'm sure) in organizing this event.
6/25, Sun: Leisurely breakfast with lots of relatives. Time at the beach with Layne & Rettie. Retrieved Zoey from the kennel. Dinner with children & grandchildren. Relocated from the condo to a dog- friendly Red Roof Inn in Mt Laurel NJ
6/26, Mon: Visited "Diggerland" with the children and grandchildren. This is an amusement park full of construction equipment – some provides the basis for rides, and some can be operated by children and/or adult visitors. Kathy stayed back at the motel with Zoey.
6/28, Weds: Yesterday Kathy went to Sesame Place with the MacGumeraits and I did some laundry. Today I went to Northlandz Model RR in Flemington; another find from Atlas Obscura. After reading comments in Trip Adviser I wasn't expecting much, but this place is spectacular, even if a bit frayed at the edges. I spent more than 2 hours looking at over 8 miles of track and scenery. Highly recommended!
6/29, Thurs: Drive to Uniontown PA via Maryland. Lots of traffic around Philly, but clear sailing after that.
6/30, Fri: Today we left Zoey in daycare and visited 2 outstanding Frank Lloyd Wright houses: Falling Water and Kentuck Knob near Uniontown PA. We are in awe, especially of Falling Water!
7/1, Sat: You probably thought "Tara" was in Georgia, but today we visited "Tara" in Clark PA. An old mansion, converted to an inn with a Gone With the Wind theme. Lots of life-sized Remington bronzes in the garden.
Next a stop at the Kent State Museum to see their collection of (mostly women's) clothing from 1750 to the 1980's. The thing I took away was that if I ever needed to hire a fashion designer for a woman's dress it would be Zandra Rhodes, a designer I never previously heard of.
Finally a visit to the site of the killing of 4 Kent State students by the Ohio National Guard on May 4, 1970, in a stupid attempt to stop a student protest of the Nixon/Kissinger expansion of the Vietnam War into Cambodia. The four students died in a parking lot, and there is a ring of lighted pillars around each spot where a death occurred. Kathy and I had flown to Europe for a 6-month camping trip on May 1, and didn't hear about this tragic event until several days after it happened. The site brought back many awful memories.
We've stopped in Akron for the night.
7/2, Sun: Today we left Zoey for the last of her scheduled day care stops while we spent several hours in the Toledo Museum of Art, (described as a "Gem" in the AAA tour guide). A very good collection of 19th and early 20th century European painters, and lots of other collections as well. There is also a "glass pavilion" which features glass-making demos and a modest collection of glass art (but it doesn't compare to the Corning Museum collection).
7/3, Mon: I visited the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg museum in Auburn IN while Kathy and Zoey waited. The museum is in the headquarters (and showroom) of the Auburn Automobile Company. There are a lot of fantastic autos, mostly built by this company in the 20's and 30's after E.L. Cord took over as president, but some Auburn's going back to the first years of the 20th century, and a handful of classics from other makers. After the museum we drove on to Columbus IN.
Here are a 360° video and a 360° still (like a Google Street View) shot yesterday at the Yale-Harvard game. Yale won 24-3!
I gave a talk about 360° Digital Photography last Wednesday to the Computers & Technology Group at the Lexington Community Center. Although there are no speaker notes, I think if you click through the talk you will get the gist of what I said.
The talk was too long for the time I had, so I have been invited back to deliver the second part of my talk on December 6th at 10am at the Lexington Community Center.
No matter how much an Internet surveyor tries to assure me that there will be no attempt to connect me with responses I give to a survey, I never believe them. This impacts how I answer a survey.
From my viewpoint, what is needed is some cryptographic-based mechanism that assures that there is no possibility of linkage been me and my answers. From the perspective of the person running the survey, there is also a need to assure that a single person does not submit more than one response to the survey.
Searching around the Internet, I have discovered just such a solution called Anonize, developed by a professor (Rafael Pass) and his students (Susan Hohenberger, Steven Myers, and Abhi Shelat) at Cornell Tech, an outpost of Cornell University in New York CIty. They have written several academic papers about the scheme. Wired Magazine has published a more accessible description of the problem. The Wired description still does not provide enough intuitive details about how the solution works.
Acceptance of such mechanisms by the Internet survey industry will have the same resistance until to things happen:

Of all the sights, sounds, and ideas of my four undergraduate years at Yale, one that evokes instant positive transport to that time is hearing the Whiffenpoof Song. Even when I was at Yale, this evoked a feeling of an era that was long past -- so this isn't recalling something I actually experienced, but rather the myth of Yale that I understood but didn't actually live in.
Here is a rendition I filmed with my iPhone at a party before the playing of the 2016 Harvard-Yale game in Cambridge, MA.
Here is a flyer announcing the showing of "To Be A Man", a film by Murray Lerner that was made in 1966, funded by the Yale Admissions Department. Rather than the limited showing to prospective Yale Students, the film was picked up by WGBH and shown on many public television stations shortly after it was created in 1966.
Marsha and I celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary on June 5th. We went to The Hedges, an old fashion "camp" on Blue Mountain Lake in the Adirondacks.
We knew that the weather was going to be yucky, so we brought lots of things to do including books, crossword puzzles, sudoku, cameras, art supplies, etc. We also payed a visit to the Adirondack Museum where life in the Adirondacks is celebrated in all of it's dimensions.
We returned home via the Berkshires where we attended the wonderful wedding of Shana Hill and Richard Hughes at a country inn in Lenox right across the street from Tanglewood. Shana is Joan Hill's daughter. All in all, a great week away from Boston.
I found the following information about NPD, one of the many things that Trump suffers from, on numerous websites. I record it here for reference. "He" refers to Trump.
NPD - A guide to learning to deal with narcissistic personality disorder
It’s not curable and it’s barely treatable.
Pay attention to your own emotions: do you sort of enjoy his clowning? do you enjoy the outrage? is this kind of fun and dramatic, in a sick way? You are adding to his energy. Focus on what you can change and how you can resist, where you are.
"We are all called to be leaders now, in the absence of leadership."
Today I started a goal of riding my bike over all segments of the Across Lexington set of trails. ACROSS Lexington is a network of 40 miles of marked routes throughout Lexington. Many of the trails are through various parcels of conservation land in Lexington, others are through existing parks and side streets. There are six loops. Several of the loops use portions of the Minuteman Bikeway.
In general I will start on my bike at my house, ride over to the start of a loop, go on the look and then ride home.
Today, I did loop A.
This route had a wide variety of surfaces for me to ride over, including:
Here is the final report from my bike navigation app
