This week has just been filled with challenges, but more about those in a minute. Last weekend was the annual balloon festival in our area and it is called Aloft! They used to call it Freedom Weekend Aloft because it is during the Memorial Day weekend. But for some reason the organizers must not be too fond of the freedom thing so they dropped that from the name. Over the years we’ve seen lots of hot air balloons and a couple of years ago one of them made a splash landing in our lake. At least I got to see a few of them this year so my T.G.I.F. for today is That Gizmo Is Floating!!!
None of the hot air balloons really came close to our place this year. Oh well, maybe we’ll get to see more of them next year.
Anyways, we’ve had some challenges this week with our blog. Several of you tried to visit and were rudely told we were not available due to a server error. Dang, turns out we were exceeding our bandwidth that we are allowed to use from our hosting service. We are back to normal, at least so far, and we are working hard on a permanent fix. The spam doesn’t help either. I have been getting upwards of 700 spam comments each day. So, since I am a super non-fan of the Captcha things, I’ve opted for the little check box that you simply have to check to say you’re not a spammer. It seems to work great on this end as we’ve dropped to only 1 or 2 spam comments per day. Sorry to inconvenience you with that check-the-box thing, but I seriously had to do something. We had a similar problem with our other blog ForeverHomeWanted.com and have made the same adjustments over there. Technology sure can be fun!
But it’s Friday, and we’re all sure ready for the weekend. Sister Dolly is going to the Vet tomorrow but she doesn’t know it yet, so let’s keep that between us since it’s pretty much just routine stuff. Hey, Dad will get to look in on Ray Charles & Sister Rachael while they are there.
I hope you all have a fun weekend and be sure and stop by tomorrow for Sister Saturday with Precious. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
