A Time To Mourn

I will be taking some time away from blogging to mourn the unexpected passing of my Granddaughter's Daddy.

He was working out of the country, in Cameroon, Africa and died on his 35th birthday.

Please send good thoughts and prayers, if you are so inclined.  He will be truly missed.

God bless you John.  You will always be in our hearts.

They Say...

... a picture is worth a thousand words.  Good thing, since I don't have a thousand words in me.

Several of you have asked about Michael and how he is doing.  I haven't had many answers, other than what I hear from my Daughter, since Michael is a lousy communicator. (Yes, Michael, I said that and it's the truth)  When he isn't being held captive in the hospital, he rarely carries on conversations of any length and only messages on occasion, usually when I pester him.  As long as he is doing okay, I'll take that to him being sick any day!  It is what it is, we try to deal with it the best we can.

April is a month of several birthdays in our family.  My Daughter turned 32 on April 9th and my Grandson, the baby turned 3 on April 7th.  Saturday, we got together to celebrate and I was able to see, firsthand, how Michael is doing and I'll have to admit I was impressed.  I think he looks pretty darn good, what do you think?

I can't believe this little guy is 3 years old... already!

April 14th is my Son's fiancee's birthday.  Happy Birthday, A!

Time To Vent

Blogger, you are getting on my last nerve!  Some time back you changed everything and left us no options but to accept it.  Some of us don't adapt well to changes, especially if what we have is working for us, even with the occasional glitches.

We used to have a "Manage" button we could click and make adjustments to the blogs we follow.  It became nonfunctional, even before the drastic change.  Since the change, there is a little gear icon you are supposed to be able to click and manage your reading list.  Click that and what do you get?  Something else nonfunctional.


I follow a lot of blogs and I read them from my dashboard.  I start at the bottom, where I left off and read up, oldest to newest.  As soon as I finish, I hit the refresh button and read what has been added throughout the day.  Some blogs that post daily don't even show up, I have to go looking for them.  Once I have found them on my list and clicked them, then when I hit refresh, they magically appear... but not without tracking them down first.

Now, about that refresh button.  When I click refresh and expect to see the updated reading list, what I don't expect to happen is for Blogger Buzz to show up over and over again.  When it comes up new, the first time, I read it.  However, I don't like to have it foisted on me EVERY TIME I HIT THE REFRESH BUTTON, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, FOR WEEKS AT A TIME!  (the current one has been showing for over 5 weeks, that's old news now)  Sometimes I hit the refresh button 5, 7, 9, 10 times, before my reading list will show up again.  Each time I finish reading, multiple time a day.

It's no wonder people just give up and disappear!

Anyone else having issues?  Take time to comment and tell me I'm not the only one... PLEASE!
