Housekeeping and a bathroom counter drawing

First, I hope that my frenzied attempts to remove the word verification which was reported to me by a couple of frustrated wouldbe commenters, has worked. Evidently when dear ole Blogger overhauled behind the scenes, it made the word verif a default, whereas I had always set it to default to no word verif, not wanting to make life any harder.

I could only get the "no" setting to stay put, after many many attempts after which it would default right back again to "yes", by putting in comment moderation. So that's why this is there. I do read comments quickly, so there's not a big delay in getting your words out here, and I trust the the word verif. stays away.

Should it suddenly show up -- I guess you realize that it's impossible for the blog owner to know this? it shows only on guest commenters' screens -- please complain instantly, and I will go after it with a shovel, or Roundup or something.

Today I made a moderately successful drawing, as I sat on the side of the bathtub -- just in case you were wondering! -- and drew what was on the counter, the finished toothpaste tube before I tossed it, and the replacement and the various other items in use.If this enthralling description leads you to actually want to see it, go here

I made at least five attempts to get my paragraph breaks used by blogger, and this is my final try. They really have done a job on this site! sorry if it's hard to read, not for lack of trying. I'm trying one more workaround, and then I'm out of ideas.


  1. I sometimes wonder if blog-grrrrr does these things just to make us exercise our grey matter trying to figure out a solution.

  2. p.s. - no word verif. showing up so you're a success, at least so far!!

  3. I did wonder about the word verification thing but supposed you had put it on for a reason. It was a bit difficult to read sometimes. Glad it's gone now and will certainly let you know if it reappears. I don't think I want to start a blog after seeing the hassles that you and others seem to have. A bit like Facebook - TPTB seem to think they know what their users want. I will just continue to read blogs rather than create one.


Thanks so much for commenting. I read all comments with care and much pleasure!
