Remedial Blogging













Does anybody else have difficulties with the technical aspects of Blogging? I am at the mercy of my severely distractable son "Crabgrass" for guidance. I feel a bit lost, and at the moment can't find my sliderule.

This is a picture of Crabby (right) in a more focused moment, teaching me , under hypnosis, how to Blog. His sparkling eye scares me, though I bravely meet his gaze.

Hi MMCA
I can hear the comment even though blog is soundless: “Now Crabby, I can see it in your eye you are upset but don’t you forget I’m your mother”
Nice to have you back :-)

OK Crabby - you have crossed the line here-where and when did you pick up this Swedish vocabulary?This will take me forever to decipher what you and nb have deposited on my Blog-I'm going to Google now and hopefully will be done before midnight. I might poke you in that shiney eye of yours-simmer down!!!

Hi! I would never ever make fun of your English, Anna-Lys. I can tell you that it's a whole lot better than my Swedish!

The only Swedish word I know is Mats. And Anna-Lys, and Fancy, and Borje, Bjorn, ABBA, Forsberg, Salming, Sundin, Wonderings,....
um... Erik?

I think I need a new picture for my avatar.

Hi, Starwalker.

Happy New Year everyone!! I just woke up. What day is it?

Anna-Lys or Fancy:

What did I say in my comment at 5:32? I stole words from other posts & comments and mixed up the order. Maybe you know that. I was trying to say that George W. Bush is an insane war monger who hates me for my freedoms. How did I do?

Hi, n. bourbaki. I love your medals!

Hello dear Canadians,

Lovely sunny day overhere today! Made me think of you and your son(s)!
I am happy to notice that my link is here. Now comes the most difficult part. Be prepared!

Put your marker over my name on the link list to the left ... I am just a "click" from you ... still I never see you. :-(

You are welcome any time, nice to be neighbours, isn't it? Unfortunately I can't have friends links on my blog due to stalkers. I have moved through five different internet portals to get some peace for especially my friends, because stalkers walks into my friends places as well :-(

I am actually seriously thinking of leaving this online world, but still I would have missed the fun and joy over communicationg with people like You!

So, I guess ... I try once more ... but yesterday I had to enable moderation again. And I hate it!!! Makes me feel trapped ... and that takes all the fun out of it.

I wish you a wonderful weekend,

Kram

That what happened with NB was, I think, his total misinterpreting of
Engrish site. http://www.engrish.com/ Check it out so you’ll understand better what I mean.
On the other hand it is, as Fancy said, unsuitable to write the way he did. We are all here to communicate with each other, learn about each other and at the same time have some fun. Regardless what he wrote he didn’t disgrace you, with text, in any way. In some Swedish bloggers eye he is a bit pain it he ass but I’m pretty sure you can handle that.
Du you feel like a little girl again? Everybody keeps eye on you so you won’t get hurt. Those Swedes like your company and do care about you and they show it. Nobody wants to loose a blog friend just cause of one person.

Good Evening Starwalker -
Thanks for your concern - and yes, you are right, I can handle pretty much anything life throws at me.The challenge is on with nb,and I managed to get something out of his comments --
I thoroughly enjoy communicating with all of you,learning about your country,culture,weather,music,etc.,and I will be a major pest down the line. You will not get rid of me so easily!!!

Not only did I not delete-I actually looked up every damn word,and while I can't make a real case for a communication out of it,I did learn some new words in your language.I cannot use them in a grammatically correct manner,but I will use them down the road,and subsequently give you a good laugh!!

"We cannot write in water...we cannot carve in water. Water's nature is to flow and that is how we should treat life ...emotion, negative or positive. Do not deny it but always let it flow through and then away."

My thoughts upon that quotation:

I do like to stop the flow with a little reflecting water-stone, to make sure I learn something ... then I let it pour through my hands ... saving the most precious drops in mind and heart.

Anna-Lyze .... that! ;-)

I closed and deleted my site and opened another. I do read your blog from time to time and I’m happy to se you’re all right. When everything cools down, if it does, I’ll come back with my new blog address.

Hi MMCA

"the problem" is only a "preblem" something dude's do when the become prisoners in the space between reality and their own imagination. When they mix bloglife with real life. Their own real life with someone else online life. A well known emotional phenomena to us living online for many years, and do no longer mix those senses.

Those people are more often than seldom getting the feeling of that everything that is been written are addressed to them, and only them. Thanks God ... I have left that state behind me.

I receive a lot of e-mails, upon this matters from those still living in that shadowland. Maybe, I could help a few by writing a blogpost about it. But, agan ... then they will feel accused, not helped?!?

Whatever move I make ... I still have my behind ... behind :-D

Wish You a joyful weekend ... no every day of your life ... my friend!

Crabby has always had a fixation with this word. As a little boy, he would shout it out in the grocery stores, Doctor's office,even in Church!! If he got angry with you, yup, he would call you a Penis. Just think of it as
