I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Bored, Boring and Gimpy

Stumpy and I have been a little gimpy lately.  Stumpy, with her luxating patella and I with my various issues. That makes us boring and bored.

She's always looking at me, as if to say, "Let's go!"

Also, the ongoing issues with Blogger, YouTube and Google have sucked the fun right out of blogging.  Even when my hands are able I, oftentimes, can't comment.  I have to log out of Blogger to use Google or YouTube. I have to log out of Google, to use Blogger or Youtube and I have to log out of YouTube to use Blogger or Google.  In other words, I can only be logged in on one of these websites at a time.

On top of that, I can't upload a picture to blogger about 50% of the time. In spite of the fact that blogger says it's "done" the picture doesn't show up.  Doesn't matter which format, html or compose, I use.  Or how many times I upload. 

Blogger/Youtube/ Google could care less about these issues.

Please know that I am reading your blogs, in spite of my inability to comment.

First of all, Boring, Bored and Gimpy are three of our favorite Dwarfs! We are getting comments from you, despite all the issues. Have you thought abut changing browsers to Google Chrome or something else? Computer issues make me Crazy and Crabby - two other Dwarfs who hang out at my house!

We miss your posts!

You make our computer problems seem trivial. Sometimes computers seem to toy with us.

We just got a message that our letters didn't match and to try again. But the comment still went through. Strange.

Michael Ultra said...

Are you using Google Chrome? I really would like to see you get this worked out.

Stella said...

Hi you desert kids!

I have been missing you, but didn't know why! Sorry very for all the troubles. I mostly have problems with Blogger and photos, but if I keep trying, eventually they make it.

We hope you get fixed. I don't have Google Chrome, how special is it? You gonna get it?

Stumpy's looking fine!


Dexter said...

You must be in some sort of weird internet dead zone or something. Your worries with google and blogger and everything sound down right mental fits producing. Glad you two are OK, albeit a bit gimpy.

Phyllis said...

Well, it's been so stinkin' HOT that I haven't felt like doing much either, which makes for me feeling quite dissatisfied. This afternoon the temps have gotten most comfortable! An absolute miracle!!

Sam said...

And I'm reading yours, too, despite of my lack of time for regular commenting.

I hope that both you and Stumpy feel better, soon. Boo to luxating patellas!

Hi you two! Glad you managed a post even with all the frustrations! I'm getting your comments so something is working :)

Hope y'all feel better and your puter starts behaving soon!

Waggin at ya,

As always, clear the history to the browser first.

Do you use two separate emails in Google and keep one logged it all the time? If you do and it isn't the one that is tied to your blog that may explain why you have to log out of one to post comments on the other. No idea (yet) on why youtube is being a brat.

I did have an issue with photos posting a while back, but no more. Can you give more detail?

Peruby said...

Post your browser and it's version. To find the version, click on Help about from the menu and you should see the version number.
