Hair Pulling and a Harley Update
This is how I feel right now!! And I don't have long enough hair to pull! I'm not sure how many other people are having the same problems so I thought I would post this to see. I'm not complaining....just trying to understand the problem and give others some insight.
I've always had some problems with blogger but lately they seem to be different and worse than usual. Maybe it's because of the new and improved beta blogger. I'm still waiting to see if I want to change over to that or just move to another blog service.
My problem is with comments again. No, not the ones left for me! I love all those. Earlier I mentioned having problems leaving comments on other blogs and got a couple of good suggestions. Now I'm having different problems leaving comments.
Before, I wasn't able to get the comments window to open but with your suggestions I have tried right clicking and that usually works.
Now I've having problems with the word verification. On one blog I had to do it four or five times, being especially careful each time to type in exactly what was shown, and each time it would just give me another group of letters.
Other times I type my comment and verification, click the publish button and get "page cannot be found."
Several people have written on their blogs about the lack of comments and I'm wondering if these problems are happening to other people and maybe that's why there are no comments being left at times.
My other problem is with bloglines. I use them to keep track of the blogs I read regularly. I noticed that some blogs didn't appear to be updated....and one in particular I know updates almost every day.... so I clicked on it anyway and sure enough there were several posts that I had missed because bloglines had indicated nothing new.
I'm just curious if anyone else is experiencing these same problems. I guess if you're having problems leaving a comment, you might not be able to leave one here! If you know I'm a regular visitor to your blog but I haven't been leaving comments it may be that I'm trying but running into these problems.
Now on to a Harley update. He has finished his medications (thank goodness!!) and seems to be doing just fine. About the only thing we have noticed is that Harley is much more subdued, and the deep rumbly purr that goes with his name has not been heard since he got sick. We have not let him back outside and are trying to turn him into an indoor cat like LuLu. The vet agrees and said that if we could keep Harley inside for a few weeks that he would get used to it. (fingers crossed)
So far Harley has been inside since August 8th when he got sick. HB and I are hopeful that it will work....although I'm not so sure LuLu feels the same!!
Here's a photo I managed to get yesterday....Harley is either asleep or running around so it makes it a bit difficult to snap photos of him.
I do wish he could learn to relax!!
