Fore! Err No - Fire!
Another lovely day here. The mist is now burning off and the sun is starting to shine brightly and the leaves are really starting to turn now. It was very warm yesterday also. However, it will not last. Tomorrow we are set to return to strong cold winds and rain.
I am still hoping that something can be done to save my comments. As you know my old journal did transfer and was combined with the new one. However, when I checked, all my comments had disappeared. Over four years of them including all the wonderful comments I received last year when I went through that awful time with my diagnosis and treatment. I decided that there was only one thing that I could do. Transfer the journal again. Yes, it would mean having a duplicated blog on here but at least my precious comments would be saved. Yesterday, with long gaps in between, I made seven attempts to transfer my journal. Every time I received the message - error, transfer failed. I have asked for help at Magic Smoke and I can only say - fingers crossed.
On Saturday a clubhouse near us was severely damaged by fire. By the time the Fire Brigade reached it, the clubhouse was beyond saving and will have to be demolished. I remember, years ago, we had internet friends visit from America. This was long before the days of journals, this was when aol ran a penfriend system. That is how we met. Anyway, the husband was a golf fanatic and we arranged a game for him at this very course.
Him indoors took a couple of photos yesterday. The first picture is one side of the building, then you will see it from the other side.
Talking of photos does anyone know any tips for putting them on here. Yes, I know about clicking on the picture icon and adding them that way but whenever I do that, it always puts the picture at the top of my posting and not where I want it to be! I do use Photobucket but often find that the pictures appear on here far too large. This system is driving me mad quite frankly. This is the second time I have done this entry. The first time I saved it as draft as we can do on here. It confirmed that the draft had been saved. I went to make a phone call and put some washing on. When I came back and went into Dashboard to bring up the entry to finish it, I was told - You have no drafts!! Oh, how I wish aol had not made the decision to dispense with us.
Talking of aol, I have been having lots of trouble with them. I lost the internet on Saturday, back yesterday but running very slow and today I keep getting thrown off so, before I lose this entry (no intention of doing it a third time) I am going to finish here.
Wishing you all a good week.
