Missing Widget Icon on my Dashboard


I uploaded the most recent software updates, and now I can not find the widgets Icon in my dashboard/dock on the bottom of my Mac OSX screen???

I'm still a newbie, but can not find it again?
So you cannot find the icon for dashboard in your dock? Go into your Applications folder and locate the Dashboard icon. Drag that into your dock. Alternatively you can actually use a key (on your keyboard) to open dashboard up. This can be customized in System Preferences > Dashboard & Expose'.
