Solitude. #1. Thank You!πŸ˜€πŸ˜Ί

Hello everyone! You might be wondering what happened to me today, I usually have a post out in the morning. Well, I wasn’t able to get online, because neither one of my browsers would work this morning for some reason. My internet connection was fine, just the browsers would not work. Other things on my laptop worked fine too, so I really have no idea what happened and after a couple hours I gave up and turned the laptop off for awhile. Normally I just put it to “sleep”, but this time, right off.

When I finally turned it back on again about 2 hours later, everything was working fine again. The thing I find amazing is this, no one else seems to have these problems. I try to get help from the “help” people, but that was no help at all. One guy said he had been working in “help” for 10 years and had never come across this problem before. That is not really what I like to hear. Surely other people must have problems with their laptops/computers too. I don’t include phones because they are something different entirely, and for me they are no good for working on my blog. I know other people use them and enjoy using them for blogging, but it is not for me.

Oh well, these things happen. Makes the day interesting. Sort of. So my solitude post is not really solitude. However, it is a beautiful day. We got another 4 inches (10cm) of snow overnight and about an inch (2.5cm) more today. And now the temperature is dropping as we head back to frigid temps for a couple of days. The birds are very busy at the feeders today. All of them were covered with snow this morning. I thought I had gone out early enough to clean them off before the birds arrived, but I did not quite make it.

I also want to say a big THANK YOU!!, to everyone for stopping by, following, liking and reading my blog each day!! I appreciate having all of you here with us! I now have 1,222 followers and Muffin and I are thrilled by each new follow and for all of our regular followers.

    • Yep, it was kind of a rant, but it was meant to be sort of a funny rant though.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή Maybe I didn’t quite succeed with that though!πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ™„ Yes, things are working better and I hope it stays that way for a while now! Have a great week Simon!πŸ˜πŸ˜ΊπŸŒžβ˜•β˜•πŸ₯ΆπŸ₯Ά


  5. Wow congrats on the subscribers. We love what you and Muffin share here. It’s like being with two best friends.
    How do you capture these photos without scaring away the animals?
    It’s normal for us to keep devices on without turning it off.
    But try turning your laptop off frequently (especially cellphone) it gives the device a chance to rest.

    • Thank you so much Tiffany for your support and encouraging words too!
      They get used to having me around so I can go out and put my face right up to them, they come bouncing over to me and chirp their hello, looking at me while I look at them. It is so cute! They birds often sit all over me too, the deer will eat from my hand and let me pet them. It is great fun.
      Yes, I think maybe I will start turning my laptop off more and see if that helps it, might make it last longer too.
      Thanks again Tiffany, have a great week!πŸ˜€πŸ˜»πŸŒžβ˜•β˜•

  6. What a great photo of that fluffy little bird! We have had problems with Firefox and the Edge, even though hubby and I operate from different computers. I primarily use Vivaldi as my browser and it’s very rare I have a problem. My hubby experienced Firefox crashing frequently and some of my programs won’t work on the Edge anymore. I shut down my computers at night. Good luck! πŸ˜¬πŸ™€β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈπŸ’»πŸ–₯

    • Yes, I have used Firefox for years now without really any problems, until this last year, so I have decided to stop using it. I’m using Edge right now, but I don’t really like it and I have never tried anything else but maybe I should. I’m going to try shutting down at night too, maybe that will help, give the computer a rest, maybe that’s why they don’t last long for me. Thanks Eugenia!πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸ’»β˜•β˜•
