BLOGGER PROBLEM SOLVED

After spending the better part of the week being irked that I could not read my Blog list I can save I solved the problem.    This great discovery came from a forum group of people on Blogger.  I was not alone and the solution came from a few people.

It it is your problem go to the settings, Blogger help and "uncheck"  Use Blogger Draft.   I know very little about computers but can read instructions, which I did.   That little maneuver has solved the problem but I am spending an inordinate amount of time today reading the postings I have missed for a week.

I am awaiting my next problem so I can bitch and moan about that, what ever it will be.

TROUBLE WITH BLOGGER

Now, if a person is having trouble with Blogger where can they go for advice?    Everything was working fine; then the same afternoon, about a week ago the trouble began.    What you might ask?   My subscribed blogs are not showing up on my Blog list, only the latest one is there and when I click on "view more"  a blank screen appears.

I do not know what to do with this.   Like a lot of companies, they have plenty of help to sell you the product and after you're hooked the help disappears.

Perhaps I will try Facebook and see if there is an answer there.

FINALLY FIXED THE MOUSE PROBLEM.

Computer mouse that is.   For the past year (really it has been) I have been having trouble with the mouse.  Everything is sailed over it would connect to that site.  This made me crazy because I spent most of my time unclicking things I did not want to see.

I went into the bowels of the computer, Google searched the problem and tried many suggestions. Today,    I again, went into "Mouse"  and still could not figure what was the problem.  There are about five sections and I found one that said "reset" for the mouse settings.    This has seemed to have fixed the trouble.  It also have a very limited area on the mouse pad when I could control the the movement in a small area, that too seems to have been resolved.

At least, for today, if is functioning in tip-top shape.  Strange things is I know I was not playing with the mouse settings,  perhaps the computer is possessed.

APRIL IS ALMOST GONE

 

I think the cold winter is almost over; exceptive for the fact there was frost on the lawn yesterday morning.   I wanted to take the winter quilt off the bed but worry that I may freeze some night.

I like sleeping with the window open;or perhaps open just a crack at night.   I have to make my decision soon, or get everything off the bed and into the washer and then to storage until about October. 

The whole winter was extremely cold and snowy and the chill has extended into Spring.  Who knows what summer will bring.   The interesting thing, to me, was the fact the the Farmer Almanac had predicted a brutal winter, and they did better that the National Weather Service.    I heard a tidbit and the Farmers Almanac predicted a cooler summer, and the weather service predicted a hot summer.   It all remains to be seen. 

The husband could not get connected to his brother on Facetime.  Seems the brother had updated his iPad and now it will not connect.   His brother said he had just done an update and husband said he had never updated his iPad.   

The daughter stopped by and took a look and said there were multitudes of updates not installed, LOL.  She said she would stop by on Tuesday to hopefully solve the dilemma.  This should be an all evening affair.

Since I do not have an iPad I do not have the problem and do not know how to solve the problem.   My iPhone, however, is updated.  This will make an interesting story when I relay the procedure.

HELLO APRIL

I just realized that I have not posted since the end of February.   It is starting to warm up, so they say.   It is funny that 56 F seems warm to the lengthy cold winter.  I am glad to see this winter season end.  I hear the same sentiments from anyone I talk to when the subject is mentioned.


Yesterday I went to the Phipps Conservatory to the Spring Flower Show and took a few pictures.   The scent of the hyacinths was in the air.   It amazes that they produce such a fragrance.  I do not have any bulbs planted in my yard because they will be eaten by various woodland creatures.  They do not seem to bother the annuals.

At the end of my visit I usually stop at their coffee shop and get a coffee and a sweet.  They sweets are from a local bakery that is famous for Burnt Almond Tortes. The Torte is unbelievable.   Much to my dismay and disappointment they did not have the little bites, which is about the size of one fourth of a small cupcake.   I talked to the young woman behind the counter and they are not going to have them anymore because of the sugar content.  WHAT !!!!!!  Since when has the coffee shop decided what I should eat or not eat?  

They were not selling huge slices of the damned thing !!!!   I expressed my displeasure at that.    I will not go and buy the whole cake because that really has too many calories...I think I will post it on their FB page and see what they have to say...

MORE SNOW IS MORE THAN POSSIBLE

Since I am fixated on this unforgettable and much hated winter, I have heard the update on the radio this morning.    Even though the storm is still off the Western coast, and not yet formed, the prognostication is we may get a foot of snow and or ice.

Now, should I take my car out of the garage and put it in the driveway because that will give me less of the driveway to shovel, or is this fantasy thinking?   I think I will leave it in the garage because I can not reach the top of the Forester to get the snow off of the roof.   I will just take a Motrin before so my arms do not hurt when I shovel the load.

MORE SNOW, IF THAT IS AT ALL POSSIBLE

I think that I and all the people of the Northern portion of the USA are slowly going raving mad.   I was starting to feel a little better when it was actually warm over the past weekend.   Most of the snow had melted, the weather was warm; at 50 F it actually felt warm even thought it was not in reality.  But 50 is better than 10.

On the local station it hinted this morning that there was something going on this Sunday into Monday.   I am happy that the rain has now arrived in California and a series of systems seem to be on their doorsteps, so to speak.  In fact, some of them who had forest fires nearby were preparing for mudslides and floods.

This same system is going to go across the Midwest and into the Northeast and with it brings snow, freezing rain and perhaps ice storms.   Everyone I talk to is bordering on weather induced insanity.   I am thinking that perhaps they should start to put anti anxiety medication in our water supply, starting tomorrow.

I am glad that I have not worn out the snow shovel this winter and I am considering replacing the driveway and installing a heating system that will melt the snow on the concrete....
