This and That
Just to keep you posted, my crazy Dr. Seuss plant has now officially reached the ceiling. Just thought you might like to know.
I've come across another rather interesting phenomenon. It seems that a number of people decided during the recent holiday season to celebrate by adding moose antlers to their automobiles. You may be able to spot them on this car I saw on the Parkway the other day. Reports are that antlered vehicles have been sighted as far away as California.
Hey! I just got a comment on this from Dawn, who gave me this:
Pretty darned cute! Thanks, Dawn!
Meanwhile, back at the ranch (so to speak) my current petty peeve is: Why is it that every so often I go to my Dashboard to look at the list of blogs that I follow to see who has most recently posted, and what I find is a note from Blogger saying, "You are currently not following any blogs." No list. Actually, I am currently following about thirty blogs, thank you. But I see none listed. If I then leave the page and click on almost anything else, then immediately return to my Dashboard, my list has magically reappeared. It isn't a very big deal. I can do this in a couple of clicks. It's just annoying.
And while I'm at it, let's talk about word verification again. Judy, over at Imagine mentioned it the other day, and I find this annoying too. You leave a comment for someone, and go to publish it, and you are told to copy the word - but there is no word to copy. Blank. Usually, if you click on "Publish" a word will then appear and you can go back and do it, then publish. But not always. Sometimes you have to leave the site, go back to it, and do the whole thing over again. Super annoying.
Well, like the man said, "The more things change, the more they stay the same."
Obviously, I have nothing very earth-shaking to talk about today. Perhaps I should end this now, until such time as I have something a bit more interesting.
