It looks like the new word verification has been a hot topic on quite a few blogs recently. I’ve noticed quite a few bloggers that have finally turned it off. Thank goodness!
Evidently there were quite a few that didn’t realize they had it turned on. I double checked mine just to be sure. I’d have been awfully embarrassed if mine had been on after all the complaining I did about it on others blogs.
When I checked my account, I decided to look through some of the “spam” comments that blogger had caught for me. To my surprise I found three comments that Rick made that were in the spam folder. I don’t know why they singled Rick out. There was nothing in his comment that resembled any spam. I guess I will check them once in a while from now on.
If you are still one of those bloggers who use the comment verification, and want to turn it off, but don’t know how, check out Rick's blog for detailed instructions. I know a lot of bloggers that are still reading, but not commenting on blogs with word verification/aggravation turned on. Me included!
I noticed a lot of people turned theirs off yesterday, but this morning I ran across two that hadn’t. grrrrr No comments left my me!
It was cloudy yesterday and we got some light rain off and on. There’s a cold front trying to come through and we may get some more rain tomorrow. It’s okay though, we really need some rain, and we’re no longer dependent on the week-ends for our fun.
Al worked Thursday and Friday, and I kept busy around here doing those procrastinated paperwork type things. When went to the gym Thursday and evidently both of us overdid it a bit, because we were both a bit sore that night
I mentioned in my last blog post about a flock of birds around here that I haven’t been able to identify. They buzz around in a huge group and never sit still long enough to photograph. I did manage to get some long distance shots of them in the air. I’m hoping Judy, or someone else can help me identify them.
They aren’t as large as they appear in the photographs. They have a yellow belly, and there are hundreds of them all together.
The pictures are bad, but they were moving so fast and were at a pretty good distance. I’m pretty sure they are not Cedar Waxwings.
I ordered a dash cover for the motor home, a couple weeks ago from Rv Toy Store. I immediately got a receipt showing my order was placed, but there was no shipping date or tracking number like I normally get from online purchases.
I waited a sufficient amount of time with no tracking number, or order, so I sent them an email for a status. They never bothered to respond, so I called them. It turns out that the company they use to make these dash covers doesn’t have a pattern for our motorhome and I was out of luck. Really? Thanks a lot!
I always post about products we buy and like, so I thought I’d post about one we don’t love! I don’t think I’d ever purchase anything from them after this experience. It could have been a fluke, but they lost any future business from me.
I really want a dash cover to protect the dash from little kitty claws, so I found another place that’s actually on the Lazy Days premises. Lazy Days uses them for a lot of their custom work, so I know they’ll do a good job. The place is Wade Rv. They are more expensive, but they custom fit the cover to the motor home. The only problem is that they need the motor home there to make a pattern.
That means a day spent at Lazy Days and a $350 bill. We can’t do it until we leave here anyway, so it gives me a chance to look around. We may have to leave here a day before we head to the Keys and get that done.
