July 2011 Desktop Calendar

July 2011 Desktop Calendar

At the beginning of every month, I am offering C&Z readers a new wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.

Our calendar for July is a picture of water kefir (kefir de fruits), a thirst-quenching fermented beverage I’ve written about a couple of months ago. It’s wonderful in any season, but it is exceptionally refreshing during the summer months, and if you can lay your hands on some crystals, I recommend you start a batch of your own.

Instructions to get your calendar are below.

Here’s how it works:

1- This link will open a new window (or tab) displaying the right wallpaper image for your screen.

2- Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and chose the option that says, “Set as Desktop Background”, “Use as Desktop Picture,” or something to that effect — the exact wording will depend on the browser you use.

3- If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference screen (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.

4- Enjoy!

[Note: Readers of this blog live all around the globe, and I am unable to provide localized versions of the desktop calendar at this point. This is why I've opted for the international standard, by which a large majority of countries abide, and which states that Monday is the first day of the week.]

    Another lovely one! Thank you. And a reminder to try and find the water crystals when I am in Europe next month. Amazon USA have them but don’t ship out here.

    Have a great summer!

    Thank you; I fully agree with the statement that a week starts on a Monday… :)))
    I do monthly calendars myself and my sis get one every month. For July I have now adopted yours because of the very refreshing and summery theme. Thank you very much!
    I shall also visit all the links you’ve so thoughtfully provided…. just not now as I need my beauty sleep. I live outside of Paris and am up since 5h30am.
