Pancakes and word verification........

Later - I had to add this. Cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top then rolled up and consumed with gusto. Delicious!
Pancakes. I am going to be making a pancake or 2 for supper today. It is, of course, Shrove Tuesday, and tomorrow it is Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. And the 40 bags in 40 days challenge. Not that I am trying to minimise Lent in any way shape or form, but the thought of re-homing 40 bags of Stuff and simplifying things around here is a heady one. So are the pancakes. With lemon and cinnamon. Who needs meat and vegetables.........

I popped in to visit a few blogs last night, and so help me, has Blogger completely lost its mind? TWO words for word verification??????????????? I see your point, Vee. This is beyond crazy. Or is there some huge problem that they have yet to divulge? I can't read one of them at all, and gave up trying to comment after 3 attempts at proving I was not a robot. I also find that a ridiculous addition to the comment box. "Prove you are not a robot". So, I am going to lift the verification for a few days and see how it goes. This could also explain the sudden drop in comments. It drove me crackers last night, so I am assuming the rest of you are also pulling your hair out by the roots. What are they thinking of?

OK, WHO MOVED THE STOP WORD VERIFICATION THINGY?????????????????

20 minutes later and after googling the problem and discovering that the last remnants of the world who had not yet removed word verification had now been tipped over the edge and that there is a mad scramble to drop it immediately as I speak........

It is gone.

There is no more word verification on this old blog.

You may now leave your comments freely.

Word veri-fiasco.

And a very useful tip I read is to keep your old blogger dashboard on your bookmark bar as well as the new one if you have switched. That means easy access should  we need to trot back and twiddle something else vital, which will no doubt be tomorrow's exciting discovery.

I am sorry it took me so long.

And now I have completely forgotten what I was going to chat about, so I am off to gather the ingredients for the pancakes.

Agreed. The new word verification is a nightmare. I might take the plunge and drop it myself...

It always amazes me that someone always needs to change up things that are working so well.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, why don't Blogger get that?

Thank you. As wonderful a thing as Captcha is, in Blogdom, it is a nightmare. Good for bank accounts and rare sign-ins, but not for leaving comments on blogs. Enjoy the pancake supper! I should join you in this 40 days/40 bags endeavor. Hmmm...

It has been a nightmare. I have given up on commenting because of it. Sometimes I would "mispell" it three times. Forget it!!!! Grr. Why do they have to make it so difficult?
