Week-end Whoopee!


Recently my boss told me that I was the only one on his staff who could not be replaced by a computer. What can he mean?

Perhaps he meant that so far they’ve not invented a machine that does absolutely nothing.

    That’s a stunning use of monochrome, Bushka. I am quite taken with the picture and the ‘crawling’ leafy end points.

    As for machines doing nothing, just wait till they break down, with or without mortal assistance.

        Bushka, perhaps you can help with something. I do get notifications that you have ‘liked’ a comment, and also, often a second notification usually encouraging a visit to your site. At least I get to know you may have responded to a comment I have made. For some unfathomable reason the notifications I used to receive of a reply to a comment of mine no longer appear. Puzzled by this, I have checked sites where I have commented and seen replies, though I I have had no nudge to advise me of them.

        So,I have trawled through my settings every which way; all that should be checked/ticked is. I am at a loss to understand what is affecting the notifications. Do you receive notifications of replies I make on your comments? Is there something in your settings that might assist?

        I’m afraid I have been having probs with some notifications as well…have tried everything..even asked ‘Help’.
        More over, previously I could read comments and interact with bloggers who read, like or comment on my autumnambles blog -in the Reader -until a few weeks ago…since when I have not been able to access any likes, comments etc re my autumnambles blog….Except if/when I go my my aumtumnambles blog directly. Don’t know, M! Hugs!

    Sounds like the site is being ‘messed’ with. Snowbird, who paid for her site, is not getting notifications of new postings.

    What did ‘help’ suggest? I don’t work from the new reader usually. I still prefer using the old posting page. I had probs with navigating to other areas with the new one and also losing posts with it. I did discover that one cock up affecting lots of people, (can’t remember exactly what it was now) was linked to some faulty set up with WP’s pages. I was thanked for guiding the ‘help’ people to the faulty location. However, none of this resolves the current niggles.

    If you tick the box ‘notify me of new comments via email’ you get absolutely all the comments made. The very popular blogs, bless them, can get large numbers. You do not, however, receive notifications of any replies to your own comments if you go that route.
