You may have been re-directed to my photography page if you were looking for Shane’s Flying Disc Show. Dream Weaver just blew me away. I could only get so much help from Go Daddy before they refused to help me get through the hard parts of web pages, like connecting FTP sites with Dreamweaver and Go Daddy.
I am utilizing Facebook, FlickR, Youtube, Vimeo and WordPress to bring you Shane’s Flying Disc Show and Shane K. Smith Photography. I have been a photographer and Flying Disc Thrower since elementary School. I made my first money with a camera in High School and my first money with a Frisbee in 1978. I also made money by teaching Tennis since I was 13. I am writing this in 2020.
I am going to set my menus up on my web pages so that Shane’s Flying Disc Show comes up first. Then all my other stories will fill in alphabetically.
Thanks for showing up in here!
Please make time to click on follow and fill out the email alert part near the bottom of the page. Share on Facebook or other sites. I put some tunes at the bottom of each page. Please come back often. I get motivated knowing someone is out there!
As of 20200514, I temporarily deactivated Facebook so I could concentrate on this project. I’ll be back on Facebook soon. I am shooting for a return to Facebook by June 12, 2020.
To get to the best of Shane’s Flying Disc Show please find me in the menu above.
Then I do a 180 round house kick and use the Flickr albums as embedded slideshow panels because I can’t afford the web space on Word Press. Some of the Flickr viewers have between 500 to 16,000 photos in them. That overheats the internet and if you are in an album that should have more photos in it, click around on the viewer and it will take you right to flickr to finish off!
That’s easy for you to say! It took me ten years to find the slideshow button! So We can use two styles. One way you can go through our photos one by one manually. Or I can do an occasional slide show with it.
South Sliders is a little tricky and takes some finesse on the phone especially. I was finally able to get my web page to load on just a telephone connection. I couldn’t break into Wal-Mart’s wi fi so I used my phone’s connection. When you see South Sliders a couple of Slide Shows will move the photos every five seconds or you can push one of those dots to get to another photo. The FlickR slider is touchy on the phone. I found if I barely touch on the far-right side in the middle, the arrows come up and I can surf each slider with my thumbs. If I bump it too hard it takes me to Flickr.

SALISBURY – William Crawford Owens, 55, of Salisbury, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, Aug. 15, 2010, at his residence surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with lung cancer.
Born July 12, 1955, in Cabarrus County, he was the son of the late James Louie Owens, Sr. and Margaret Gwendolyn Thomas Owens.
Mr. Owens was a 1974 graduate of South Rowan High School. He was employed by Charlotte Pipe and Foundry in Charlotte as an IT specialist for 12 years, prior to his illness.
William was a member of World Hope Worship Center for many years, serving on the church council, with children’s ministry and served in many other ministries in local communities and foreign missions.
Mr. Owens was a loving husband, dad, brother and friend. He was most of all an example of what a Christian man should be to all he came in contact with, displaying his love for his Savior Jesus Christ, and living that same life each day. He had a passion for helping others with a selfless attitude, always putting others first.
William loved spending time with family and friends at church, the beach, the mountains, fishing and camping. He was an avid runner and loved the run over the Charleston Bridge.
Those left to cherish his memories are his loving wife, Ginger Lea Owens; son Matthew Owens (fiancee Mara Matthews); stepson Jeremy Hill (Jaquelyn) of Dallas, Texas; brothers James Louie Owens, Jr., of Gwinn, Mich., Michael Thomas Owens of Landis; sister Melissa Sue Sutton (Richie) of China Grove; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Visitation and Service: Visitation is 1-3 p.m. Wednesday at Linn-Honeycutt Funeral Home, China Grove, with the service to begin at 3 p.m. in the chapel of the funeral home, conducted by Pastor David Cowger of World Hope Worship Center. Entombment will follow at West Lawn Memorial Park Mausoleum.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Black and the entire staff of Carolina Oncology and a special thanks to Dianne, our Hospice nurse who was truly a blessing to our family.
It is hard for me when I know such a good person passes on and I have no information. That is not anybody’s fault. I knew Bobby much better than Roy. At anytime if Bobby and his family has a photo or two or a story to put here please get it to me in the group or a pm, something!
Many of you are thinking , Shane this already happened. I know and you know but many don’t. This is my attempt to sort out my memorial media page to make it easier for us to find someone .
It takes me more time to recover after creating a page. Everybody should go have a little fun while they can!
