Still Can't Down Load

Rick suggested downloading FireFox, I did didn't work and it made a mess out of my computer. Spent most of the morning restoring my system. I figured let me send feedback. New feedback gets a pop up box that - Analyzing the page, please wait. I could sit here until next Christmas waiting I guess. the line fills in but nothing ever happens and you have to x out. So I will give it a few more days and if nothing happens I will stop blogging here and try a different blogging site.

In between aggravating myself over this I did 2 loads of laundry, gathered things in the shed for donations and ordered a car charger for the laptop.

Took a nice walk with Fred this afternoon. He really enjoyed it and met some of his buddies walking.

Good Night All


  1. It sure is a good thing that computers work flawlessly and never frustrate us. (yeah, right)

  2. I sure hope you can get this problem worked out. It isn't easy changing blog platforms. I have so many reasons to dislike Blogger but can't find anything better out there - at least nothing that doesn't have a sharp learning curve.

  3. Well? that sucks, Jo .... I use Firefox and Blogger and have since the beginning. I reckon yer snake bit. I dunno... I've given up trying to understand things that don't jive. like these chargers I'm messing with ... too much going on today to go to the Apple store so.. I'll just wait until I'm sure I get right one

    On my mobile App for Blogger ... it keeps telling me that my browser isn't compatible with Blogger... the message further reads to check the compatible browsers list ... I did and Safari is on the lit ... my iPhone's browser is Safari and the correct version ... but blast almighty!

    any time I post form my App... up pops that mesage... I gave up trying to understand it ... as long as my stuff posted BUT y'never know what order the pictures would post.

    I haven't fooled with Windows in years so ... can you check your Blogger settings to what it prefers and most importantly ... what version... have you updated your computer's software in a while? You have a Toshiba?

    I know nothing.... ;)

  4. Jo, I really do hope you can post photos soon, especially by your next camping trip.

    I've been on Wordpress since early 2010, I think, and have only had problems one time when they were upgrading. Wordpress doesn't have all the bells and whistles that blogger does, but they are a good, solid, reliable blog host. I'm very happy with them.

    Hope you don't have to go through the hassle of moving, though. :)

  5. Good morning John,

    Yes the world of computers is a wonder place. NOT!

    Hello Gypsy,

    I have sent e-mails to both google and blogger and they have never responded. I pay a couple dollars a month to be able to post pictures and that will stop too.

    Hi Carolyn,

    I get the same message and yes I have all my updates. It calls for chrome and I have that too. When I downloaded Firefox it took away my tool bars and I no longer had my favorites. the main screen was bing I hate bing. I'm not a very techy person so I hate messing with this stuff. My level of patience is limited to about 3 seconds.

    Hello Sharon,

    I hope so too or this is not worth having. I can post on face book but this is where I want to show other bloggers who travel and some who don't . All the bells and whistles don't do me much good since I don't know how to use them anyways. I just want to keep up with everyone I have become friends with here and also enjoy their travels or day to day lives.

  6. Too bad you are having trouble, maybe if you took it to a local computer shop they could fix it. Or go to the library and see if you can have luck there.

    Yesterday I spotted a little Dodge van that I could rig up into a nice little camper but the man wants nine hundred bucks for it. I'm not paying nine hundred bucks for a twenty year old oil burner with a transmission problem, offered him two hundred bucks, he said the tires were worth that, really? One of them is flat, he can keep it, a wrecking yard wouldn't give him a penny for it.

  7. I have another suggestion, see if you can upload your pictures to a photo site, then you can link to them in your blog posts. For example a lady friend in Texas posts a lot of her pictures at FLICKR...

  8. My computer is fine it's blogger that is messed up.

    Vans are not easy to come by if their decent. I know I looked at plenty even took some to my mechanic to check out and they advised me not to buy. These are great guys been going to them for a few years now.

    I tried to down load Flickr but wasn't having much success like I said I'm not very good at techy stuff and have no patience what so ever. I'll try again later when I get home.
