Morning Glories Everywhere

 I still have issues -- don't we all? But this posting problem seems to be between me and Blogger and my laptop -- which may have to go in for re-grooving (does anyone remember The Firesign Theater?).
 I am posting this from a desktop computer that I haven't used in years. And I couldn't upload from Picasa as I usually do -- instead I used the little picture icon to upload from a web album.
 I've uninstalled and installed various things. (I don't have Chrome, Alan, so that wasn't the problem. And I'm only using a fraction of my purchased Google storage so it shouldn't be the pictures -- I don't think.
 On my laptop, I can't see the main pictures on this blog -- but I can see the little LINK WITHIN thumbnails. I can't even leave comments on this blog.
 And to compound the weirdness (not to mention annoyance), on the laptop I also can't access the Politics page of Huffington Post.   I can read the Entertainment or World or Media  or any of the other pages on Huff Po but not the Politics page. 

What's a Liberal political junkie to do!?!

I don't have a clue what you can do for the other problems... but the morning glories are gorgeous, especially the first one!

Vicki, I'm afraid I'm no help with computer problems. All I can do is send your computer healing vibes. (What? I'm from California, lol).

Your photos of the morning glories are truly glorious!

Ohhh, I love the stripey golden light on the door and adjacent vines. Something about light that color on worn wood . . . it feels like home.

This gave me a chuckle, Vicki! Beautiful photos between your computer dialogue. As for the Huff: I'd stick to Morning Glories!! ;)

I'm not sure exactly what's causing the problem. Have you tried clearing your cache?

I also had trouble with blogger and pics yesterday...but I always use the little single photo at a time system, so my little lap top stays happy. I did send Google feedback that photos weren't posting right. But I'd say yours is sending you a message, definitely! What could it be? The electronic fairies know!

Vicki Lane said...

Martin, that's rather a personal question, innit? (just kidding -- yes, I have.)

Mel said...

Oh, I hate an unsolved electronic bug. I haven't had this problem yet, maybe because I use Chrome, which has it's own quirks, but explorer wouldn't let me blog comment. It's always something.
Thank goodness you got those wonderful photos to post, they are delightful. I can almost smell the crisp mountain air.
Hope your bugs resolve soon.

I can understand your frustation...
especially the part with the Politics page of Huffington Post because I had a lot of fun with this page:

Beth said...

Oh what lovely morning glory shots! They are taking over our place, too...but we don't mind.

So sorry about your computer problems---I know how vexing they can be!

I've just come back from Kefalonia where the morning glories were flowering profusely - glorious they were - and your pictures do them justice.Sadly they don't grow in the wild in the UK.

In spite of all the bugs your photos are beautiful! I like to see those flowers when the sun shines through them. Thank you!
