Cough. Sneeze. Blow nose. Cough. Sneeze. Blow nose.
And again. And again.
Unfortunately, I have sensitive skin and within… oh, say 5 minutes…of starting to blow my nose frequently, redness occurs. I look terrible. Oh, and my eyes get glassy. I’m looking good here at MHC, just in time for our 13th wedding anniversary, which is tomorrow. If I continue at my current pace, I will barely remember to fling a “Happy Anniversary” in Don’s direction.
Is anyone else having problems with blogs loading slowly? Mine, in particular? At times, my blog takes forever to load. And others? In a second. I can’t figure out the culprit, though I am leaning more and more toward Google Chrome. Chrome is already irritating me because I can’t get Picnik to work in Chrome. Out of the blue last week, I could no longer save a photo to my computer after I’d finished editing it. Many emails back and forth to Google/Blogger/Chrome help and I still have the problem. I uninstalled it. I installed a new version. Still, I get a message that “Flash Shockwave” has crashed. So now I’m using Firefox, which I already had installed, to use Picnik. And this crashing problem? Lots and lots of posts about it not working in Chrome.
Today, as I was noodling about trying to figure out why my blog was loading slowly in Chrome, I tried loading it in Firefox. No problem – fast, easy. So that leads me to wonder about Chrome…
I’ve also heard about a lot of problems leaving comments and one of my readers, Lucille, wrote me today to say she couldn’t leave comments and that sometimes she has a problem opening blogs, including mine.
That’s not good. I suppose it could be due to slow internet connections. I have a high speed connection and Wi-Fi here and I have to think the connection speed isn’t always consistent.
Any thoughts or wisdom to pass on would be greatly appreciated.
Go ahead. I’m a captive audience, sitting here in my flannel pajamas and blowing my nose.
