~ Don't Jump ~

Photobucket

Good Mornin!! Don't jump folks, it's not that bad. Ok, except for the fact that my subscription service sent out an alert for the past 8 entries. LOL I guess I was suppose to approve each subscription as well and I didn't. I did it this morning and poof off went that mail. So sorry for the intrusion, but now you know I'm making entries :) Well, at least one person I know got that email. I do hope everyone who signed up got an email.
I have to be honest. I like it here. There are a few glitches, and I feel a little lonely with the lack of comments but I feel they'll come once folks get the hang of it around here. I find the actual set up user friendly with lots of things to add. Things AOL could not even dream off. Alerts would be nice.......
I had several emails and comments about the email thingy. I DO get comment alerts I knew how to add my email to that portion of blogger. What I was in fact talking about was the comments from you. I don't get YOUR email. I get your username if you have one, but no email. I have to hunt you down to find an email address ( I don't have AOL save them). That proves to be time consuming if I want to respond to your comment or if you ask a question. Sometimes I can't even find an email address. That is one glitch I don't like. YOU have the option to fix it tho. Add an email address to your blogger profile then all comments that go out have your email address on them. Is that making sense? I thought I was pretty clear in previous entries but with all the notes I got on how to get comment alerts it apparently wasn't.
Can I just say it's freezing here!! A whopping 43 degrees :::shiver::: A little chillier then just fall weather. The picture above is actually the creek that runs behind my house. I pulled over on the bridge about a mile from my house and grabbed the shot. I thought it would be a better view, but it didn't come out as I hoped. I did do some editing to give it a bit of an old time feel. Successful? LOL I don't know.
Not sure what I will be doing today. I know of 2 people that will in fact get our football game. One has a satellite and the other was lucky enough to get those dang rabbit ears. Who in a million years would have thought in this day and age 1000's of folks would stand in line for hours to get them??? Either way I'm hoping to get the game. I'd love it if the Bills could go 5-0.
The boys play their last preseason game tonight and then it's off to the regular season. Do I even need to tell you how excited I am? LMAO I didn't think so.
Happy Sunday folks.... and remember... don't jump! It's been less then a week and I think we are doing damn good getting use to this place we are calling home.


hugs

Hi, thanks for the visit to my new blog.
I'm still fiddling with it and making a few changes. I expect we all are. On the whole though, I think I'm going to like it on Blogger and AOL can go boil their heads.

Your leaves are changing faster than ours are. Must be coz your farther north. It was in the 30's here last night. Hope you get to see your game. Still shakin my head over rabbit ears...love ya!

Jeannette said...

I think that overall it is better here as well. We can do far more things. Even if our journals come over, I shall stay with my new one now. The only thing really is the lack of alerts. I am surprised that blogger has not come up with something. Maybe when we get settled we can all write and suggest it. There are enough of us for them to listen.

oh man i so wish it was 43 degrees here in Texas....blah....

let's say we have about 60 women in J Land who have all been around an average of 3-4 yrs...and big bad boss comes and fires everyone. So these 60 or so women (and men too) have to leave and everyone moves quickly to the new place. Well the new place is WAY WAY over the majority of the peoples heads! In TIME, we'll love it or "make due" but MY GOD, this has been awful for me!!! If Megan was here, i would have been moved over in 2 hrs TOPS and been the first one knowing everything because she is so smart about PC's. WHAT A HEADACHE.
That photo is DELIGHTFUL. The colors in Ohio SO FAR as not pretty at all.
LOVE YOU

Indigo said...

(Giggling insanely) oh yeah, you never know what's next. Still loving it more. By the way I added an extra line to that post to come over and send you some love. You've worked just as hard as I have to make the transition easier for everyone. I'm loving the changing colors. I wanted to escape to the mtns. this weekend it wasn't in the cards, maybe next. (Hugs)Indigo

LIZ said...

I didnt know you could get alerts on here like we did on AOL? I think we are all getting use to our new journal home...have a great day!!!

Beth said...

Ken and I both checked, and we have our emails in there for when we leave comments. I haven't signed up for your entry alerts, because I get your feed on Reader. I am LOVING that feature.

I'm actually kind of excited about this, and wish I'd started writing on here when I signed up back in the spring. I didn't play with it enough at the time! I als love that we can use any HTML and Javascript we want, not just approved sites. So many things to choose from...I feel like a kid in a candy store! LOL

Our teams are not doing well at the moment. Colts (my team) are 1-2, Bears (Ken's team) are 2-2. WTH? At least Notre Dame and Illinois won yesterday. Sheesh.

Joyce said...

Love the photo (as always) Donna. Hey, I'm like you...I haven't gotten it all figured out yet but I like it here. I think AOL did us a favor and I'm sure they didn't mean to. Enjoy your day.

I'm having a ball over here! They have so many more things you can add to your site such as music (Yahoo) and as always your site is Amazing! And your pics are as well. Take care and enjoy!

Robyn said...

That would be an awesome site to see on a regular basis. Beautiful pic! Yep I agree and you already know that with the help of each other we are all going to be happy here once we figure it all out ;) I thought it was cold in MN today it is 50 (guess I will stop complaining now! lol) Have a great afternoon D!

Missie said...

I've said this on a couple of other blogs, but I think AOL did us a big favor. I'm loving google reader. I just wish there was a way to get updates on private blogs.

Linda said...

Pooh Hugs,

Morning Donna, *hugs* Just wanted to wish u a good day. 1st of all the pic above there is beautiful. I just love fall. That pic just shows why right there. I dont see any beautiful fall like trees here though, *sigh* lol. Anyhow thanks for the tips about how to add our email to our profile. I admit i havent made up my profile yet, my blog or anything lol. I am moving slow here, lol. But i will for sure this week. When its all done ready to go i will let u and others know. I hope u all will add me and i hope to get new readers. That would be great :) Yeah the alerts with blogger are way different then aol. But as u said we will all adjust. Its like the same way when we all first had aol journals we had to adjust to that and figure that all out. I remember my 1st aol j i was lost lmao. I hope u got to see the game dear. Wow 43 degrees there? Geez cold lmao. My gosh we are still in 80s here for high and 70s for low, lmao. We already know haaa how excited u are about ur boys playing reg season now. ur too funny, lol. Take care dear. Agian you have been so great to us all thru out this whole change. Thanks for all the words of wisdom :) Have a good day, Leslie

Penny said...

I'm here, Donna. And yes, it's much more lonely here than in the J. I do hope we can all start making blogger sit up and notice how we have been communicating all these years. Perhaps a community reports blog here on blogger. I don't know. I guess we will need the more able to teach us more about pictures, tags, etc. I don't miss AOL, but sure miss the ease of use. I am so glad to see your tags and photos over here. It's a bit like home. Love & blessings, Penny

Meg said...

I really like that view...and yeah, you succeeded in making it look old.
Rabbit ears? I haven't seen those since I was a kid.
