Where Have All The Bloggers Gone? Rusty Stuff, Wisconsin Barns


Documenting Tuppence's Morning Bath



A face to love

Last week I was having problems with Firefox, which wouldn't let me log in to my Etsy shop. I finally got advice which told me to delete all cookies from my computer, which I followed, step by step. Although it didn't solve my Firefox problem, what it did do was delete all my GFC followers from my dashboard and deleted my entire Feedly list.

I have managed to reconstruct at least a partial list, but if you are not getting usual visits from me to your blog, you'll know why. Should you wish to leave a comment, I will add you to my list of contacts once again.

I still don't know what the deal is, but have had to log in with Internet Explorer, rather than Firefox.

So here I am, being annoyed by a browser.

Fifteen years ago, I didn't even know what a browser was.

UPDATE:  For those of you have mentioned it, yes my GFC followers gadget is on my blog, but the list is not on my Blogger dashboard. I am getting my Feedly list back as you visit and I visit your blogs in return and reinstate you on Feedly. It's a real hassle. Just a warning, should you be considering deleting cookies.

Have a great week
Woolie HUGS

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Oh wow I can't believe that deleting cookies would do that! So you lost all of your followers too? You still showed up on my dashboard this morning!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

I haven't had problems with Etsy... yet, but Blogger has been acting very weird with me telling me about five days a week that I don't follow any blog, so it's been hard for me to visit blogs as well!

Dicky Bird said...

blogger problems are so frustrating I feel for you. Have a good day

Deb said...

Tuppence should be ready for her day by now. Lovely photo of the old rusty barn. I look for them on my drives in the country. Hope your 'blog issues' straighten themselves out soon. Hugs, Deb

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

Enjoyed seeing Tuppence doing her morning ablutions. I used to love watching my own kitties at their kitty 'chores'. A treat to see again.

Rats about losing your stuff... I came to my computer once a few years ago and my whole blog had been deleted by Google. My heart sank. Fortunately, they were able to get it back and very helpful. (It turned out other people were having similar things happening).

So hopefully you'll be reunited with all your blogging friends.

Wishing you a beautiful day...
Brenda

Computer troubles are second only to car troubles - or maybe they are both at the top of the list. I like Chrome.

Tuppence got a good bath!! What a pretty kitty!!

Wishing you a frustration-free week!!

Sandra said...

love the rust and the bathing beauty.. wish I could take my bath with no soap and water or shampoo conditioner and come out looking purrfect.

did you try uninstalling your Firefox and re-install a new one?

Diane said...

Computers can be a pain. Yes, who knew any of this 20 years ago? Pretty kitty-- reminds me of my old cat. He was white with tan patches.

Vee said...


Tuppence is a very pretty and clean kitty...nothing like a bit of calm first thing in the morning. =D

TexWisGirl said...

love the old hay wagon! cute kitty cat!

Donna said...

LOL, you were getting some good practice with Tuppence. Just take some more for the photo challenge this weekend! With a cute kitty like her, we'd like to see some more. Love that Amish barn. I use Safari as my browser. It is free and it's given me no troubles at all over the past 4 years. Maybe you can give it a try.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

LOL well a browser WAS someone just browsing through a store! :)

LOVE the bath photos!

Last time I cleaned cookies I couldn't get in to google and gmail...had forgotten my email for my blog, etc. Couldn't find where I'd saved it / nada.

FINALLY it dawned on me to CHECK MY BLOG where I had Contact Me info LOL! :)

Debby Ray said...

Such sweet pics of your sweet kitty bathing herself...she is such a pretty kitty. I am getting your post so I assume I am still on your list! Who can understand why or how these things happen in cyberspace? Not me, for sure :) Have a great day!

Beth of "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

i wonder what you mean? ... i see you followers. hope it will work out. wonder if it is something that will work out soon. sorry to hear you are having trouble. have a better week.

thank you for your visit. i appreciate your friendship. ( :

Maureen @ Josephina Ballerina said...

Comment.
I lost all the pictures off my blog a while back when google coupled everything including the kitchen sink with google+.
Still not don't putting them all back up. Not that anyone will read that far back; but I like to think my grandkids will like reading about their dear departed MoMo some day well in the future.

Carla from The River said...

Love your photos of the bath. :-) She did not mind you taking photos of her during her beauty routine. ;-)


I also emailed you about some dates for a get together...did you get that e mail?

I HATE computer trouble too. Hoping it gets better for you soon.

Simply Linda said...

Good Morning..I have never used Firefox, so I couldn't be of any help. However, Google/Blogger still won't allow me to make a "page"..so who knows..hope you have a great Monday. Thanks for the smiles. Blessings

Nancy Shuman said...

Oh no - blog woes. I'm still here, still enjoying!

Heide at ApronHistory said...

Cute Tuppence photos! I love her name by the way, as I love Tommy and Tuppence.
I have gone to using google chrome for blog reading and editing. It gives me the lest headaches right now.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I am so sorry. It would be extremely rare for me to delete my cookies because of that reason. I see that your followers seems to be back on your page.

Empty Nester said...

Good grief. Is everyone having trouble these days? Sheesh. I think we're good BUT, just in case, here you go: www.emptynest1.net AND www.grindingmygrits.blogspot.com

I see Tuppence found a nice sunny spot. :)

Thanks for getting the soap out so quickly!

Valerie said...

Oh my such a pain! Tuppence is just lovely and looks so relaxed and lovable.
Happy Monday,
Valerie

Tammy Chrzan said...

In all of my brilliant maneuvering, I managed to lose my blog friends completely! I changed my blog name and zap.. there go my friends... so I won't be on any of your old lists.
How are you my friend? That almond and peaches soap looks divine!
I hope you have a great week!

Stephanie said...

Oh no, I'm so sorry about the hassle you've been through, Judy! I am often too scared to try anything out of my comfort zone for that main reason - you never know what will happen.

Your photos are wonderful, as always :) Thanks for sharing and have a lovely Monday!

Linda Kay said...

My first visit to your site, but I'll be back! Love the kitty. They are so clean...and what a cute name.

podso said...

Seems things aren't quite what they were in "blogland"--lots of snags and little messes. But I love that barn photo (well, both really)-- the blue jean jackets are perfect against the rusting barn. Lovely!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I hate having computer problems because I'm sooo not tech-minded. Hope you get your blogger list back. Love the shots of Tuppence. She is a sweetie!

Gail Dixon said...

So sorry for the browser woes. I had to laugh when you said you didn't even know what that was some years ago. :) Lovely photos on your post today. I think I'm going to order your Amber & Musk soap. Is that a good scent? I have eczema, so I have to be careful what I bathe with.

Pamela Gordon said...

Oh what a pain, Judy! I have wondering about deleting cookies as I have never done so but I think you're the second person I've found recently that had a problem with doing it so I'm really afraid to try. Some day. I enjoyed Tuppence's morning bath time. So cute. I'm still on a break but had a few minutes this afternoon with no company and too hot to go outdoors so decided to visit a few friends. Blessings, Pam

L. D. said...

I am glad I am still connected. I remember how everyone cheered Firefox on and then one problem after another our school switched off of it. It just didn't stay compatible to a lot of other things. Love the cat.

Susie said...

Looks like kitty cat bath time. So funny. I love the rusty barn photo. I can't even begin to help you or I would. xoxo,Susie

thirtysevenandcounting said...

What very sweet captures of Tuppence!

Great finds for Rubbish Tuesday - I particularly like the rusty barn. :)

J said...

Thinking about blogging computer issues makes my head spin. So I will just say that I really enjoyed your beautiful photos of Tuppence! Like my house, yours, too, is "cat heaven!"

Terri @ A Creative Princess said...

I feel your pain with the blogging issues. I had trouble with Internet Explorer, but since I went to Google Chrome I haven't had any problems. Knock on wood!

Mama Zen said...

Gorgeous pictures. And, thanks for the warning!

bj said...

I had a place in my toolbar where I could delete cookies but with this new computer, it isn't there. Now I don't know where to go to delete them. I know they need to be cleaned out every now and then.
Love your photos...

Jacquelineand.... said...

Tuppence is gorgeous (and clean!). Long ago I had ONE cat who preferred a sponge bath to bathing himself. When I would take my bath of an evening he would be right there, demanding his!
Then again, he also taught himself how to use the toilet... although he could never quite figure out how to flush!

Noelle the dreamer said...

Tuppence knows how important hygiene is!
Judy, any news from the little boy who fell?
P.S. Computers can be a challenge or two...

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Cats really know how to enjoy the moment, don't they? Sorry about your blogging problems, I know how frustrating those can be. Love the 'rusty' barn and wagon! Glad you got me back :) xo Karen

Felicia said...

I love the images of your kitty bathing and your rubbish pics are wonderful.

sorry about your Firefox trouble. I used to use Firefox but switched to Google Chrome-its faster. I still don't like I E.

Cheryl said...

There is nothing much cuter than a kitty getting her morning bath! So sweet!!

I had to laugh at your "browser" comment. Actually, 15 years ago, I probably thought a browser was a shopper without money. (Come to think of it, I am still a browser some days.)

Jenny said...

Blogging can be very frustrating at times. I've had my own battles with it. Hang in there. I love your cat and will get a little one when I return to Texas and have my own apartment. xo Jenny

Jenny said...

You showed up on my dashboard, too.

Roan said...

Aww, cute. Enjoyed seeing the morning bath. Love that hay wagon. Haven't seen one of those in a long time. It's nice to see the rusty barn is still getting some use. Thanks for linking up!

Debbie said...

awwww computer woes, for us youngin's, what a pain!!

i enjoyed the waterless bath, talk about making do with what you have!!!

and i love that rusty ole' barn...i adore rust, i'm not sure why!!

Sue McPeak said...

Such a neat and clean cat...great photos of the spit bath. Thanks for the Techie advice...you just never know what can causes such frustrations! I'm happy to say I haven't had any ETSY issues, but I use Explorer.

Love the Rusty Stuff you shared...we have some of that HAY Rust here in Texas, too. Visiting from Rubbish Tuesday#14.

Anita Johnson said...

Last week, I couldn't get any pictures on my blog using IE or Google. I like blogging, WHEN it works! Hope you are up and running normally soon!

Cynthia said...

Bummer, stuff like this annoys me with computers. One day they work fine and the next poof a problem. Love your pictures. Been MIA for a bit still getting settled.

Cindy

Tanya Breese said...

so cute!!!

pattisjarrett said...

I like the name Tuppence. It looks like everything got a good cleaning.

Lorrie said...

Agh! Technology can be so wonderful and so horrible. Tuppence looks most unbothered by it all. I hope your blogging is getting back to normal.
