Chatty has been a bit frustrated the past few days. We went with my ten year old grandson to Ohio to visit my son and his family and 6 month old son. So I work hard at making some blogs and then I figure I'll have my lap top to read blogs and answer emails.
Well I didn't take a lot of things into account. One being blogger - I am a loyal person and I love blogger - but they have just been driving me nuts lately. And I'm not home and on a laptop with things going on all around me.
Now when my GS was asleep and my other GS went to the zoo - I read every one's blog. Do you think that I could comment nope - I found that if you had your comment form embedded and or your word verification on - I couldn't. I think a lot of bloggers had that issue.
If a word verification goes on for my blog - let me know. As of right now - anything blogger suspects is spam - gets held. There is a place under the comments to allow them or not.
You really don't have to have word verification on.
If I did not leave a comment - forgive me - I did try! I read them.
I had quite a few friends tell me to use foxfire as my browser - WOWSER - THEY WERE RIGHT! IT IS AWESOME - even spells checks your comments!
Now here is the funny thing - it was a Star Wars marathon for the boys - so they wanted the lights out. On the desk top they have an extra set of numbers on the right - and if you hold down the alt key and push 3 - you get a nice little heart ♥ - I was writing someone and since my lap top didn't have the numbers - Old Chatty thought (and this is my problem - thinking and doing what I think about) - I'd try to push the buttons on the top row - maybe that would do it - really couldn't see - but did it anyway.
A few minutes later - coincidence - my son's computer went out and mine. After doing what I could do I asked hubby to look. He tried for over an hour. Was just going to restore things, get rid of foxfire and everything - and my son (finally came and sat down beside him).
The computer kept saying enable the Internet to go on - well duh...now my son who doesn't know much about computers said, did you push this button dad - and dad says no - then I gulp - and say - well I did - they looked at me INCREDULOUSLY - like why did you do that - I tried to explain the heart theory - and to no avail. So son pushed the button and wallah - the computer turns on.
DID YOU KNOW THERE IS A SINGLE STINKING KEY THAT CAN KEEP YOUR COMPUTER OFF THE INTERNET????????????????
YES THERE IS!
And two more words of advice - if you trust me- I put on version 9 - I hate it. Tried to make me do things I did not want to do and if I didn't wouldn't cooperate. And google chrome - I think foxfire is better.
And you do not have to listen - just my experience and I know because all this went on this weekend.
Now while I was computer frustrated - I did have a good time with my son and his family.
My new grandson (pics tomorrow) is a cutie pie and a stinker. He rarely sleeps - SERIOUSLY - I didn't believe it until I saw it. Anyone have a baby like that?
This quote is exactly where I thought I was this weekend - but instead of the bullring - I was in the computer ring. Some times you have to jump in - get dirty - let people get mad - and do it anyway - to find the answers. lol
It's not the same to talk of bulls as to be in the bullring." ~ Spanish Proverb
So my ever ringing motto is NEVER GIVE UP!
