I’m a work in progress. Maybe as I write a bit more I will know exactly what it is that I would like to share with you.
Take it each day as it comes. Thank you for your comments on pacificparatrooper and greatestgenerations.
I just wanted to thank you for following my blog and leaving comments. I enjoy hearing from you and responding to you. Quick question: Is your photo at the top taken on the Erie Canal? It looks like so many gates up there with that particular color of yellow.
Yes, my husband grew up in upstate and on our honeymoon we went to New York (my first trip). Not only did he show me around his home town but we did a few side trips that weren’t too far off, including Niagra Falls, The Eastman House and the Lockport Museum and boat trip. I had never seen locks before and did see them while visiting his hometown, I wanted to get an up close and personal view. What part of the canal did you and Biss travel?
thank you for dropping by my blog. I am now following you! I love genealogy and wrote alot about that subject when I first started my blog back last May. As time has gone on , I have expanded my subjects!
Welcome! I’m still getting familiar with blogging and it is easiest to write about people I have come to know through my genealogy research. I am pretty obsessed with family history. I peeked at your blog and will browse a bit more later.
I was exactly the same way. If you look at my medical history, you will see I had to retire. I had memory issues and it ended up that genealogy was like a big endless puzzle that I enjoyed and it stimulated my mind..Just what the doctor ordered.haha After writing alot about genealogy, I began to expand my themes. It has been lots of fun. Thanks again for dropping by. : )
I just love the puzzle aspect of it! Good therapy, too! 🙂
Just wanted to stop by and thank you for your wonderful comment on Judy Guion’s blog about my guest post. You really boosted my confidence. (Now… the big question is — What do I do next month!?!)
Hello Mrs. P! I had to come over to see what you are all about. Hey, did you know your gravatar doesn’t link to your blog? I found your blog by clicking on full profile. Linking your blog might help drive traffic if your blog is listed.
I see familiar faces here, so I will stop by again!
Hmmm… I figured out how to get it to link to the profile but how do I get it to link to the avatar? Please tell.
I couldn’t remember who I told about their gravatar not showing their WordPress account. I came by here again because your conversation with Paige cracked me up, and voila! It was you I told about the gravatar.
If you click on your gravatar, up at the top is a drop down menu under “My Account.” Go to “Edit my Account” and then on that page go to “My Links.” You can add your URL there. Let me know if you have trouble.
And, because I am having fun with you, I’m a new follower!
Hi, I was actually having trouble getting notifications until just a second ago. I did some troubleshooting with no joy…and then suddenly I am getting my notifications. Wish I knew what I did.
I also was just fiddling around with my Gravatar account (again) and I am linked but and have been but I can’t seem to get the picture of my blog to show up with the link, I get a default picture. It seems to be a constant “in progress connection”. Any suggestions? Also tell me what you get when you click on my link. Is there even a link below the Gravatar? It might be different for me since I am the account holder.
Something is up with WordPress these past two days. When I comment on a blog like I did here, the WordPress app on my phone dings and i can see that the person replied to my comment. However, i can’t go to my comment reader thing-y and see their response. I had to go back to your comment on MY blog and work my way back here. It is a glitch I hope they fix soon.
But, that wasn’t your question. Let’s see if I can make sense of this.
1. You comment on my blog.
2. Your blue gravatar with a cat (?) on a fence is next to where it says, “Mrs. P. said”
3. “Mrs. P. isn’t a hot link so it doesn’t take me to your blog.
4. I can click on your gravatar and it has your email address and under where it says “verified services” is this:https://mpozzanghera.wordpress.com/ This takes me to your blog.
5. When I click on my gravatar, it has my email address and then down at the bottom it has “personal links” with a thumbnail picture of my blog page and it is a link to my blog.
Does this help at all?
I think the key is adding your blog via “My Links.”
Okay, try it now. It all looks right on my side.
Comment on my blog again so we can see if your name is hot-linked now.
Hmmm . . . tis a mystery.
Nope. No joy.
😦 I’ll try Gravatar support.
Hi Mrs. P,
Are you sure you want to read my blog… make that blogs?
This is my newest one.
It’s about someone whose great uncle died in the war. She wanted some help with her research. She found the right person.
I did not have any close relatives who died in WWII, but I got interested in aviation when I was 10 years old. That was in 1958. That interest never dwindled.
I became a history teacher… well sort of. Taught only 2 years out of 34. Then retired and went back to study translation. Then I got hooked on blogging. I have been blogging since 2008. First about genealogy, then… this happened in my life.
This blog which is the English version of another one led me to write more blogs as people shared what they knew about their relatives during the war.
How many? Many…
So when I say that this blog about Gail’s father is amazing you know it comes from someone who knows about blogging and history.
I’ll follow your new one. The other one has been going on for such a long time that I feel I’d have to catch up too much. But, I did find some of it interesting as my grandfather was a shipbuilder in the US and worked for the Maritime Commission on a similar project of replacing the WWI vessels. I don’t know a lot of the details of those ships but do know some of the names of the ones he worked on. After the war and when the Commission was no longer needed he went to work for private shipbuilders as their Chief Architect. These were both cruise ships (holiday type, not military). Eventually the need for cargo ships replaced the need to build cruise liners so he built those as well.
I left a comment on Gail’s blog
Thank you kindly for dropping by wePoets. We’d be happy to showcase your work should you ever want to share it. 🙂
I wish the best of luck in all your blogging endeavors for 2014. 🙂
Thank you…and you also! 🙂
Looks like we’re coming your way. We found a place in Reddick (North of Ocala) and we’ll be there from 1/3 – 3/31 — so sometime along the way we’ll have to bop over to see you when it’s convenient. If nothing else we’ll go looking for other parks while we’re there. No idea if this will be a good choice or not but it’s OUR choice for three months.
Any place in Florida is a good choice for me! I have lived in Florida too long to know so little about it…and road trips are fun.
I broke my hand and am having to type hen peck style, which I am not very good at. Since the ground is too wet to weed, I have time to suss out the vice to text feature to see if I can get a faster mode of communicating going. Until I do, my presence may seem absent…but I’m here! 😀 😀
LOL — I know typing with one hand is tough but I nearly choked reading this: “I have time to suss out the >>vice<< to text feature”
We’ll keep in touch and figure things out once we get settled.
Sorry about the hand! I fell once (off my semi) and broke my wrist. That was interesting. Supposed to deliver in Portland 5 days later and in the morning I couldn’t even get INTO my truck, much less drive it. Got it sorted eventually but breaks are no fun. Take care of yourself. You can bask in Rick’s special attention while you are convalescing. 🙂
We knew there would be a lot of campgrounds filled by the time we dared to try making reservations — and we were certainly right. But next time we hope to have more time and while we’re there we’ll have time to suss out what’s available
Monday Mike starts on the fridge changeover — so hoping we get that buckled up and my meds arrive by the end of the week. That leaves us +2 weeks to get there, so plenty of time to enjoy the trip (once we get out of freezing temps.)
LOL, Rick just finished washing my hair!
I found you…well, Reddick and it’s only 2 hours away! That’s an easy route, too!
