Problems with "Blogger"
Is anyone having problems with "Blogger" NOT storing (Save) your posts before they are published??
I put Sunday's post together twice (and a long post at that) and even though I periodically hit "save" each time I finished a section, or paragraph, or photo, the entire post would not store or save. It keeps going off into computer "La La Land" somewhere. This is the first time this has happened in over four years of blogging, and it is most frustrating and aggrevating to say the least....
If this query even publishes, please leave a comment as to what might be causing this or if you are also having a similar problem.
Well Mates, this entire post consisting of anectdotes, toons and a GREAT video, is a humorous and Common Sense approach to the various problems facing ALL of us during these tough financial times..... ______________________________
I could not have said this any better myself! This is the reason for a lot of problems!
It's all about the Ice Cream .....
The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade in 2000. The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president. We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.
To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class Members. We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students Should have. We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.
The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids. I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support. I had never seen Olivia's mother. The day arrived when they were to make their speeches Jamie went first. He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place. He ended by promising to do his very best. Everyone applauded.
He sat down and Olivia came to the podium. Her speech was concise. She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream." She sat down. The class went wild. "Yes! Yes! We want ice cream." She surely would say more. She did not have to. A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn't sure. Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it? She didn't know. The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream. Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a land slide.
Every time Barack Obama opens his mouth he offers ice cream, and fifty-three percent of America reacts like nine-year-olds. They want ice cream. The other forty-seven percent know they're going to have to feed the cow. _________________________________
Well Sir...I think these here toons are appropriate fer the times we're in....

UNITED STATES MAP - Short But Good!
A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what the United States looked like, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Shelby, and said, 'Go into the other room and see if you can put this together. This will show you our whole country today.'
After a few minutes, Shelby returned and handed him the map, correctly fitted and taped together. The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly.
'Oh,' she said, 'on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got Jesus back where He belonged, then our country just came together.' _____________________________
Well Sir....got some Christmas shoppin t'to today, and this is how Cookie does it (of course not in the nude...got on a bathrobe). So, There probably won't be much postin bein done at The Cookshack T'Day....Sorry..
I'm just an old Vietnam era Disabled Veteran Seabee, (and an old "Diesel-Boat" Sub-Sailer ) who's just a killin time...till time kills me. After retiring from many years in Law Enforcement as a Detective Sergeant, I now spends most a m'time a cookin fer feller sportsmen(and m' Wife) & writin a cook'n column fer a Fish & Game Magazine. I Hunt & Fish and don't care much fer liberals or ACLUers. I live in a small northern NY town on Oneida Lake, and like it that way. I can be as cantankerous as a Grizzly Bear with a tooth ache, or as cuddly as a Teddy Bear...mostly the former...
