And So It Doesn't Go

I just had to come back to tell all how happy it made me to hear from each of you. I feel like I've known you for so long. I am not able to reply to your comments no matter what I try and I can't comment on your posts. I appreciate each of you for different reasons and will try to stay in touch. I am still lacking skills on the technological front and daily have some sort of trouble on my phone and/or Mac. Just know I think of you fondly and wish only the best. It is heartening to know that you are still out there carrying on in the midst of this crazy time. Love you!

Oh, hello! I was wondering how you were holding up during quarantine, Donna. -good to know that you're still poking around Blogland. xx

Donna, I just read your comment on Weave's blog. The reason you can leave comments there is because she does not use the Embedded setting. Most of us do. For your own blog, go to settings and comments and change embedded to one of the other settings, eg pop up, or full page. I don't remember the other setting but that would be ok too. Just don't use embedded. Hope that helps. Then at least you can respond to your own comments here if you want to. Rachel

I hope that Rachel's suggestion works for you.
While you may not be able to comment on our posts it is lovely to see you posting again.
Stay well, stay safe.

Good luck Donna. My skills are patchy but keep trying.

Just knowing you are 'keeping calm and carrying on' is good news.
Most of us seem to be doing the same as each day seems just like the last one and nothing is really pressing because we can't go far.
I hope you can get your blog problems sorted and, like me, you won't have too much trouble changing over to new Blogger by the end of July when the old 'Legacy Version' comes to an end.
Chin up, hang in there. . . . . and all that dear Donna!
Hugs - Mary

Hi Donna and so good to hear from you .... I always look to see if you have posted anything. I miss you and your posts. Hope that you and your family are doing OK in these strange times ..... none of us have much exciting news to report as we can't do much can we ?!! Hope you sort your computing troubles out and that we hear from you soon... take care and keep safe ... sending love from across the pond. XXXX
