Don’t worry; I haven’t gone all religious.
I’m going to rambling on, about the light that ‘philosopher mouse of the hedge’ showed me.
As has been pointed out to me, on occasion, by some , I’m not the sharpest knife in the block 😠, when it comes to the ‘finer points of “blogging” ‘; 😟 😕or much else apparently; 😕 😟
I do try 😊; well; sort of 😏😊
Some may have noticed, from time to time, the comments section of my web log (blog) turns into a forum/chat room over which I exercise no control.
Other times I’m given valuable advice, and helpful suggestions and the following comment, from philosopher mouse of the hedge: which I’ve copied, and am about to paste; got the old grey/gray matter;
“Make sure you print out copies of your memory posts – your great grandchildren will adore them!!! Grown kids take a while to get any sense HAHA
I treasure all the old family journals I have – tell real stories from those who were there…which may become more valuable/important as there are those rewriting history as we speak.
Beatles – can’t wait for that one – we all started speaking with English accents then…really, we tried”
What a brilliant idea; is it any wonder it never occurred to me?
“How do I go about it?” I ask.
There appears to be many ways to go about it and ‘phil’, with a great deal of patience, took me through some of the ways; and I gave it a go; sort of 😕 😣 😕, my first effort was good for a chuckle.
I was acknowledging a comment from a lady who’d dropped by, after seeing/reading something I’d said/done on one GP Cox’s / Pacific Parachuter posts.
Why she wrote on the one she did, I don’t know how she found, it is beyond me, but find it she did, and left a nice comment.
It was one I wrote 12 months or so ago; I had a read of it thought it might be an idea to try out one of the print systems that ‘phil’ suggested. So taking the easy step I selected the ‘Print’ button, that’s the one, just above the heads of those that drop by, at the end of the post.
Up pops the thing at the side of the screen, telling me whats happening with the printer, and what I’ve selected to be printed ( I suppose I’m raving on about something y’all know already) and I have a look and sure enough, it’s a good replication of the post, got all the comments -44- plus; all the rubbish that fills in gaps. The lot!
Then when I selected the pages to print, it told me that there is 31 pages. That’s 31 pages to print a small to middling size post plus comments.
‘You have to be kidding!’ I yell at the printer; and like everything/everybody else, when I call out. it treated me with ignore!
What to do? Being as smart as the average 🐻 I had a look at the page where the first comment appeared; page 8, cant fool me I told the printer to just print pages 1 – 7.
And it did!
I’m not joking
It took 7 pages, to print a small, to average, size post, yet the text didn’t appear that large, so it’s back to the drawing board.
While I was shuffling around with this nonsense, I had a look back at my first efforts in 2011/12; to see if there was anything there that may interest my great, great, grandchildren, and I found it quite amusing.
Blog, after blog, of me rambling on, and not a soul dropping in for a chat, and to leave a comment, I was ‘talking’ to myself; but as I’ve always said, I like to chat with intelligent people.
I’m planning on boring you stiff, with a reprise of some of my original posts.
I wonder how many will stay
For those who might be wondering what post it was. there are few new followers; here’s a link you might like to waste some time, it was one of my better posts if there is such a thing, and don’t forget the 44 comments, mostly from you can guess!
