I still don't know what is going on with Internet Explorer and Google and why I've been locked out of Blogger for weeks.
So, GoogleChrome was downloaded again from FileHippo because I couldn't sign in to blogger from anywhere. It didn't matter because I can't sign in to Google Chrome either.
Firefox was still on the computer so download all updates and switch browsers. Favourites still had blogs on it from five years ago and I still have to comprehend "synching" favourites from Internet Explorers.
One problem at a time.
I am blogging and I switched off the double word verification. Thank you Google for answering the numerous emails complaining about this. Unfortunately I have to sign in as anonymous because signing in with my google leads to the IE8 message that it can't display the page. So anonymous it is.
Mother is ill. Temperature was 38.5 this morning and she's pulled a muscle in her back which makes breathing very painful. Temp. came down to 37 this afternoon but it's the first time she's asked for the window to be opened for a cooling breeze. Usually she's very cold even on a hot day. She didn't sound great so I pulled on the glad rags and reached out to call a cab when she rang to see if I'd come down. I always know when she needs someone around. Doc Marvin will call in tonight or tomorrow morning and I'll be back there on Wednesday.
Wednesday we start pricing all the white elephant goodies and hopefully it won't rain on Thursday. I've covered 14 note books and diaries and would have finished with 6 covered boxes but I think I'll make do with 4. I'd forgotten how long it takes to do one book let alone 14 of various sizes.
This Firefox takes a bit of getting used to but I did find a lovely green theme with little orange cats so the page pleases me but I'm still going along with IE8 until I can figure out how to import a very long list of sites even after culling a few dead ones along the way.
To Miss O'Dyne, I can't access any of your blogs, IE8 hates both of us.
To Antikva, thank you for trying to help the extremely computer illiterate. I still can't understand how I can be on the phone with you up country, me in Cheltenham but you roaming around in my computer telling me which buttons to press. I've been to places in this computer that I didn't know existed. Creepy little programs running in the background but fortunately no viruses but plenty of tracking cookies which are now languishing in the virus vault.
I was wondering why I hadn't had any accounts from Mum's pharmacy for this year, Gmail decided they were all spam and chucked them in the bin along with Taste.com and a load of delicious cakes. The worst thing that ever happened to our Blogger.com was Google taking over. If I wanted a facebook type blog I'd be on facebook so stick that up your little netcrawlers looking for illicit mentioning of your Google name.
