More Problemas

For the last two weeks I have been having problems with Blogger. I’m not sure what the problem is, but it could be my Hughes Net connection. For all I know it could be the weather. Last week, in particular, the Internet was painfully slow as the day moved on. By evening, there was just no point in even trying to use the computer. Usually, I post in the early morning hours, so you would think I would not have any problem, but I did. The problem with Blogger was that it would not let me upload a photo to my post. Several times lately I have tried to post a photo, but would get a message about the connection being lost. I then downloaded Picasa so that I could blog and post pictures from there. It worked great with the watercolor house picture. Then I did a collage of Thanksgiving photos for my last post. Sometimes it shows up on my blog – sometimes not. I don’t understand it, nor do I know what to do to fix it. I am open to suggestions.

I will try to post some individual photos from Thanksgiving this morning.

After trying several different ways to post a photo with no luck this morning, I finally got it to work. It seems that lately I have been organizing my photos into folders. Blogger does not seem to want to look in to the folders or maybe it takes up too much time and Blogger gives up - whatever. When I just save my photos to "My Pictures" it let me post them. Go figure!
This first picture is a take-off of a photo we took years ago - kind of a family joke. It is suppose to look like the people are in a hot-tub. As Craig, Kathy and Toby stooped down behind the counter for this shot, I said, "Now take off your shirts." I got a big grins from them instead. Here is GBN2 hugging Revelie, the dog. Then there was the football game in the front yard. Jesse and Bo seemed determined to tackle each other. It can be a pretty rough game, but I loved these shots of GBN2 on the field with her daddy and then with Jesse running by, yet being careful not to run over the baby. I also loved the colorful trees on Mom's street. I took this last shot at dusk while Jesse and GBN1 jumped on the "jumpoline." My camera does not take good night shots, nor does it work well with action shots sometimes. But I thought the photo caught GBN2's delight (in dedark:)

Dunno what to tell ya, Lou. Most of my picture-posting problemas have to do with network time-outs... as in "Blogger could not complete your request due to a network error" or some such message. The answer in this space (for me) is "keep trying."

And then there's my ongoing, recurring "you can see it in FF, but not in IE" issue. I have NO idea what causes this... but I strongly suspect it's something in the code MS-Word takes along with it when I cut 'n' paste into Blogger. This isn't gonna help you, though!

The bottom line: "Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of Blogger?" And The Shadow seems to be AWOL...

The individual pics were great today!

I loved your reference to the Shadow. While teaching in Taos Jr. High, we got free Weekly Readers. One of the Readers had an article on "The Shadow." It also contained a flimsy record to play an old episode of "The Shadow." The kids loved it! They loved the laugh - bwahahaha!
