The reward for all the hard work will be a hot turkey dinner and a walk in the brightly coloured woods.
A tragedy has befallen Blogger as of late. It seems that comments are disappearing at an alarming rate. At first I attributed these problems to a minor glitch, sure to disappear but a post by Debra at Common Ground concluded that the issue is really that Blogger is now strictly aligned with Google, or more specifically Google Chrome. If you haven't got Chrome you've got problems. Thank you so much Debra for setting me straight on this issue. I tried to leave a comment to thank you but ironically Blogger wouldn't accept my comment as I don't run Chrome!
The easy answer to this dilemma is to switch all browsers to Google Chrome but that's not necessarily possible or something I want to do. Changing to another platform is a consideration. Others would be able to comment on my blog freely but I would still have difficulties commenting on blogs that run Blogger. The larger issue at play here is that in order to keep up with blogging it would appear I need to have the latest in computer gadgetry. While I understand that technology constantly evolves and the result is that it tends to work faster and better, it really gets my goat that in order to participate in the internet one must consistently spend money to constantly upgrade computers, devices and programs. The short story here is that I haven't yet decided how to deal with this issue but if my comments seem a little lacking lately please accept my apology.
On a much happier note I'll leave you with some photos of yesterday's giant pumpkin weigh off that took place at Veseys Seeds on the York Road.
|Look at all those pumpkins!|
|This one gets its own blankie|
|How do you get a giant squash to the weigh scale? A forklift|
|There were separate competitions for pumpkins and squash.|
