Fun Friday with a little help from my friends...

I have three problems today:
1.  Leontien died yesterday - a friend to us all.  A young person with super courage! My heart goes out to her family.
2.  When I have new followers sometimes I can't find them - so if you are new - and you have a blog - will you send me your blog?
3.  And I added a program to my computer yesterday - not blogger - and my entire sidebar is below - any help or suggestions?  If they are on today by some miracle I will take this off.  lol

Thank You.

 

The Banana Test
There is a very, very tall coconut tree and there are four animals A Lion , A Chimp A Giraffe ,
...AND...A Squirrel.
They decide to compete to see who is the fastest to get a banana off the tree.
Who do you guess will win?
Your answer will reflect your personality.
So think carefully . . .
Try and answer within 30 seconds.
Got your answer?
Now scroll down to see the analysis.
:
If your answer is:
Lion = you're dull.
Chimpanzee = you're dense.
Giraffe = you're a complete moron.
Squirrel = you're hopeless.

A COCONUT TREE DOESN'T HAVE BANANAS.
Obviously you're stressed and overworked.
You should take some time off and relax
Have two glasses of wine.
A full box of Chocolates.
And a nice lunch.
And I'll go with you.

 

























THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

Hello Sandie...
As for your sidebar, it has to do with the width of your template. That's all.

Hope you're doing well, it's been a while since I've been here.

jack69 said...

If I was as smart as Hootin Anni I would know what a template was!!!
Anyway I loved the entry. Sorry to hear about the friend, prayers for the family.

Love the "Limes Smile" thing. Words like numbers are fascinating. I noticed the other day when I called you a Georgia Peach, I first Typed Georgia Peace, since I have been typing Peace River so much.
Anyway singing ((((HUGS)))) yourway.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I'm back....I checked your view source and it tells me you're using "Awesome, Inc." template....

All you need to do is go into your blogger admin and adjust the widths, that should work out fine. Your main width should be somewhere around 900-950 and your sidebar width around 200-260. Do a preview to see if it brings your sidebar to the right, if so, then save/set.

I have no idea how to fix anything. Anything that happens right on my blog is an accident. That's all.....AND, I'm a complete moron!

I'm sad that Leontien died.....she was a wonderful, brave young woman who wasn't afraid to follow her dreams!

Jeanie said...

I was so sorry to hear about Leontien yesterday. What a brave young woman she was.
I hope the suggestions above solve you template problem.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Sorry about the death...

Yes, your Sidebar stuff is at the bottom, like I want my Sidebar stuff to be (at bottom). But I think you do not want it, at bottom. ???

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I'm so sad today after I read the post about Leontien on her blog. She was such a brave, sweet young woman and had such big dreams. I'm so sorry she had to leave so soon.

Funny cartoon of the hubby clipping his toenails and one plopped into his wife's coffee. I think I would have had strength enough to at least dump my coffee over his head had that actually happened!

Thanks for the chuckles, we need them today after yesterday's news.

Gloria Hood said...

Sorry to hear about your friend.I'm still learning how to fix things with my blog, lol.

Ruth Kelly said...

You are the expert and computer whiz. I am still in the basic stage. SORRY I can't help you.

Theresa said...

Praying for your friend's family! So sad! I don't know anything about the sidebar problem but I bet somebody will in our blogworld:) Have a blessed day dear friend, thanks for the cartoons! HUGS!

Knitty said...

I'm sorry to hear of Leontien's passing.

You got me on the banana question. (shaking my head, embarrassed while chuckling)

I hate to sound like an old coot, but I often miss the old Blogger. I like all the new features when they work as expected but that doesn't seem to happen with regularity anymore. Currently, I can't upload photos from my hard drive. I am using Photobucket but that isn't without problems either.

Sandra said...

i have those tiny critters in my clothes making them smaller, and have for years....your blog looks good, just adjust the width. i will send and email on where and how.

Dolores said...

We were praying for a miracle for Leontien; she was so brave, inspirational and a beautiful young woman. The miracle now is that she's in heaven and well.
Now to pray for her family......

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Daisy said...

I love the owls looking for Tootsie Pops! :D Thanks for the smiles today. Have a great weekend!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I do love that quote at the bottom. That's something I'm always trying to do. Rearranging things so I can SMILE. Looking on the bright side of life is wonderful!

Dar said...

Another star shines in the heavens. So sad to hear about Leontien, a one in a million inspiration. Prayers to her family and friends.
Loved the jokes today. You got me too, dang. And like Jack says, you are a peach and (((Hugs)))
Blessings

My thoughts and prayers go out to Leontien's family...

Paula said...

Good Morning Sandie: Like the pictures and jokes. Thanks for making my day everytime I read your blog.

Pondside said...

Sandie I love your signature - thanks for makin me smile on another Friday.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

No favorites today - all good! So sorry for Leontien's family. Though- she is now at peace and celebrating!

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Sandie, What program did you load? There's a word at the bottom of your blog which says "Sitemeter"... Have no idea what it is.

Something has obviously changed your template. Go back into design and choose one of the templates they list --and hopefully you can get stuff back the way you had it or want it...

Cute post today... I too am praying for Leontien's family. So very sad.
Hugs,
Betsy

Shelly said...

Sweet Leontien- I'm praying for her family.

Your pics, as always, brought merriment to my day! Sorry, though, I can't help with the problems.

Sandy said...

I am so sorry about your friend's passing. I had to console a very close friend whose daughter was killed over last weekend and she was only 26. So heartbreaking.
Thanks for spreading cheer with all the sweet and funny jokes.
Hugs!

Angela said...

It is so hard when a blogging friend passes.

I have never seen the Limes to Smiles! That's really cute!

Have a Fantastic Weekend!
Angela

Beth said...

I have lost several dear blogging friends through the years. I didn't know your friend. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

Ms. A said...

I was so saddened by the loss of Leontien.

I've had several followers that haven't left a comment and I can't find them, because their blogs aren't linked to their profile. One finally commented yesterday and I was able to track her that way.

Happy Friday, Sandie. Have a great weekend!

Granny Annie said...

It is always nice to spend Friday at your place. I have seen the picture or the deer in the snow many times and really what to know where it was taken and if the deer made their way out safely.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

i love the "women's prayer" ... so great!!

God bless Leontien, her family & friends. wow... tough. thankful i knew of her.

enjoy your weekend. ( :

LL Cool Joe said...

Ha ha I love all the pictures today, well apart from the one about the Woman's prayer of course! Ouch! ;D

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...Sorry to hear about Leontien. May her soul rest in eternal peace.

Your other entries were funny as always. I get a kick out of them.
Susan

Ginny said...

So sad about Leontien. Funny things here today, but I am dense, I don't get why owls like Tootsie Pops?

Renae at simple sequins said...

Sandie! That was all great. I have been LOL for about the last five minutes.

sorry about your comp. me no know answer. me comp dummie.

Belle said...

I laughed so hard at the jokes and comics. Thanks. "I kissed a dog and I liked it." Oh my. All hilarious.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Once again I show up to see...

YES!!! Your sidebar is now back up on the right side.

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

I'm sorry to hear about your friends passing.

Hugs,
Dee

That corgi :) said...

It is sad about Leontien; though I didn't really know her, to pass so young, it is so sad.

On a lighter side, did love the definition of a calorie; too cute!

I hope your weekend is a good one Sandie

betty

Sarah (Nikki) said...

You are a nice breath of happy! Hugs to you Gayle!!!!!

Renae at simple sequins said...

Sandie cutie! Thank you, I am 5'5" and no I only shop about once every other week for about 3 hours. Thrifty shopping requires trying on the clothes, which take about an hour, the rest of the time I have figured out where and when to look for the items. Perhaps it is a science.

Jill said...

LOL! So many funnies!

I'm so sad about Leontien too.

Hugs my friend.

Mevely317 said...

Color me, "hopeless." How obvious, I was trying to make that puzzle harder than it is. (Story of my life - ha!)

These cartoons sure cheered this tired gal. TGIF!!!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I am so saddened my the death of our blog friend, Leontien. She was brave and beautiful. Have a good weekend, my friend.

Stephanie said...

Oh I am so sorry for the loss of your blogging friend. Hugs to you and all who knew her.

Nonnie said...

I'm sorry for your friend's family, but happy for her that she is with the Lord.
I love the cartoon about asking for directions. I have many stories on that topic.
Happy weekend.

Dee said...

Sorry to hear your friend has passed. She put up a courageous battle and touch many hearts.

I can relate to the deer in the snow asking Frank to stop and ask for directions...I have to ask my Frank that all the time.

Your side bar looks good to me...but then I am a little late getting to your blog.

I love your fun Friday wit and humor :)

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Your photos all made me smile- and I needed that,,,,
cause I am sad that our sweet Leontien has gone to live with the angels now,,, I know she will be loved there- and she will become an angel too--- but I feel sad- for her family. I feel sad for all of us.
love
tweedles

BelovedBomber said...

So sorry for your loss...Shana

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

It makes total sense that adjusting the width will fix your problem. However, when it comes to technology and changing around my lblog, I become dull, dense and a moron. I pray though that I am not hopeless.

Renegades said...

I love the question about which animal i so feel for it.


Sorry to hear of your loss of a blogging friend.

Renae at simple sequins said...

Sandie! I am so sorry to not mention the loss of Leontien. I didn't know her prior to her illness but I do know many of you knew her. So sad and yet so nice to know you had her in your heart and I am sure you prayed for her often.

rubyslipperz said...

once again...you have me in stitches. Oh, you WISH! my lips were stitched shut... =P

No...girl! you made me laugh! out loud..too!

and the dancing hippo...if she keeps at it, my might get too skinny =P

hugZ,
annie

EM Illustrator said...

Yes I saw it as well, and was so sorry to hear about Leontien :( I've been following her on the FB page.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I was so sad Thursday to hear about Leontien. Spent the whole afternoon sobbing. Amazing how connected we feel through an internet connection.

LOVE the owls looking for tootsie rolls. LOL! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Sandie! blessings ~ tanna

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

Ok, you got me with that coconut/banana joke. I thought I was so clever when I picked squirrel.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Oh, Sandie, I'm so sorry to hear about Leontine! I just started following her site and wondered how she was doing.

I can't help you with techy stuff, Sandie. Most of the time, I have to get help from other people.

SweetMarie said...

I only know to look in the template for the sidebar stuff.
I really like the woman's prayer. :)
Happy Saturday to you!

Betty Manousos said...
