Storms-r-Brewing Saturday

They're calling for storms today, thunder storms, that is. Hey, isn't this the first day of Autumn? Whaaaaaaa.

Preparing to sit down to go through my papers, my mail and my mags for the week. I don't know where the week went. Hmmmm. I found my double clotted cream last week. Sometimes my grocer carries it, sometimes they don't. I was lucky. My thighs and chin(s)will thank me later!

I need some help. I'm thinking of switching over to Blogger Beta (or whatever it's called). Heck, I may already have it. Duh. I just don't know. But, I want to begin categorizing my posts to make it easier to look one up when I need to. My library is getting quite full and when I go to find a link-back-to, it takes me for-ever. So I looked into it and found out that I have to have the new Beta thingy. I'm reluctant to change over until I hear some feedback. So, if you have any, let me know--good or bad.

Before doing anything, I just backed up my blog. If you don't or haven't, please do. I have heard horror stories of losing all your writings. I print mine out (and I am quite behind in that department), but I still want a backup. I found the "Blogcollector" which seems to do the trick. Check it out Aspise.

So, please let me know if you've heard anything about the new Blogger Beta! Thanks. Hope your neck of the woods is cool and fallish. (Hot and humid here----grrrrrrr.) A strange day. As soon as the sun comes out, it starts raining. We're going to be under a tornado watch this evening. Joy.


Here's Miss Bev doing her yoga, as the kid calls it. Look at her poor little chin, all scratched up. I'm going to look into some herbs to give her. She's already on Bach's Rescue Remedy for calming. Poor little boo.

Don't know much about Blogger Beta, except those of us still using the old blogspot have to "comment" as "anonymous" instead of our as usual name. Don't know why that is. A good friend of mine, hommakerang.blogspot.com, switched over a few weeks ago, and that is how I know about "anon" comments
LOVE your backgrounds!

I've been reading about 50-50 for and against. Several people have lost their whole blogs when trying to change. Others seem to do it easily...
I did read that Google will change everybody to Beta eventually...
Thanks for the backup link!

I can see you had a lot of reading to catch up on this morning! lol I get so behind with stuff like that too! Like Sue, I've heard bad and good things about Beta Blogger...for now I'm staying put unless I'm forced to change. Thanks so much for the link, I've put it in my favourites and will check it out later...I don't have my blog backed up so want to do so soon! Hopefully your tornado watch doesn't materialize into anything...scary! Love the pic of Miss Bev:-) Hugs xox

I've bookmarked the page about backing up your blog...very interesting...I had not thought of it before...stay safe during the storms!
Sorry, I don't know a thing about Beta...I did hear a rumour that they were going to switch us all over eventually *shrugs shoulders*
Poor Kitty Kitty!

Janet said...

I'm wondering about beta too. I've heard some good, some not so good. I think I'll wait a little longer to see what happens.

Love the photo of your cat!! And hope the tornado watch turns out to be nothing. I grew up in IL so I'm well acquainted with tornado watches and warnings.

I know nothing about Beta ...heck it took some hair pulling just to add/ change a few things on my page. Thank you for the back up link as that is something I will look in to.
Your home looks so lovely!
and Miss Bev, that is a great photo!!
xoxo

All I have heard is what I have read on comments and it has totally frightened me away.

That cat is a character.

Take care,
Connie

ok, what do you want to know about the beta? email me, I have read a little about it - apparently eventually we will have no choice but to change over.
how on earth did people lose all their writings on the blogs? makes me shudder to think
hope your miss Bev is doing ok on the rescue remedy. Have you tried catnip?

All I have heard about beta is that comments get lost and that it does have great templates...love your yoga kitty. You have been tagged on my blog!

Shell said...

I don't know much about Blogger Beta..kind of afraid of it, actually. Bev does yoga? My cats do that I we say they passed away from stravation, because they hadn't eaten in the last hour.

LOL

I wish I could find the cream at my store. Actually I haven't asked...but it's pretty gourmet oriented so it could be I'm looking in the wrong place.

I love the first picture! Your place looks so peaceful and beautiful. Just to look at this great picture relaxes me! You have a terrific view from that table and balcony. I wouldn't mind sitting there reading a book, drinking a cup of tea/coffee and enjoying the magnificent view outside!

Miss Bev is absolutely cute! It's funny to see that most cats love lying on their backs. I could just cuddle her and kiss her smooth tummy...

So you will be visiting Geneva in October? That's great! You must both be very excited. I'm sure that the place will look very different than when you came 16 years ago! Many things have changed within a very short time...

I just wanted to let you know that if you need informations, tips, addresses or anything else, then don't be afraid to ask me. I'd be very happy to help you in any way possible!...
