Thanks to Peter

A friend in need is a friend indeed!
Thanks to a great deal of head banging from me and hard work from Peter, I am once more able to post on my site. There appeared to have been some gremlins at work in the links between myself and my isp. It seems to be allright on the night now. Many apologies to those who visited my site and received no acknowledgement of same, it was beyond my control.

I have been for an overnight visit to Bribie Island, to visit with my eldest son and family. For the benefit of those not familiar with the name Bribie, it is situated 45 minutes south of Caloundra by car. The reason for my visit was a birthday celebration dinner out. The venue was a lovely restaraunt in the Pumicestone passage at Bongaree which is the name of an area on Bribie.

The weather was ideal and the food was great, we went back home to my families home and watched musical dvds. One was a compilation called Australian legends and the other was called The Best Of Cheyrl Crowe. After that it was time for bed. We had a reasonably early breakfast, hung out for a while then it was time for my family to be off to a BBQ (you have to feel sorry for them) and myself to drive back to Caloundra. I potted up some interesting succulents that my daughter in law had given me and proceeded to have a lazy day. This was after having a couple of heavy discussions with my PC which of course it won, I then went away and sulked.
I relented and came back to work on the PC after Peter had notified me that I was up and running once more. I am looking forward to my future blogging experiences.

Dear Margaret ~~ What an awful time you have had. Let's hope it is right this time, or you won't be too happy\
about blogging. I did leave a comment
about Caloundra. It sounds nice and I hope you are happy there. And it is
lovely to hear about well run and well
managed nursing homes with caring staff - such as yourself. Do you plan to post about Deans Rd. You probably
have photos from there? Love, Merle.

I think we are finally there Margaret, everything is back on the sidebar and it seems the gremlin post has gone away, time for happy blogging.

I see a couple of my blogging friends have been here ahead of me.

Happy Birthday for starters. (Belated by now?)

I'm Ann, a great-grandmother living in the California San Joaquin valley (middle of the state and our primary agricultural area). I'm raising three great-granddaughters now 10, 11 and 13 who will start back to school on Monday. I'm counting the minutes. (Sunday 9:15 a.m. Pacific Daylight time as I write this. I think you're 17 hours ahead).

Welcome to blogging. I'd love to have you visit my blog anytime.

Oh those far away places with strange sounding names! Someday, I will visit Australia. It is a promise I have made to myself.

Meanwhile a belated Happy Birthday and I came to your site by way of Peter's and I promise to come back every once in awhile to read your posts.

Happy Birthday Margaret!!
I mean it, just in case you doubted my other comment.
It is nice to have you back up again.
I had e-mailed Warren asking about you and was fixin to e-mail Peter today and decided I had better check (I had been accessing your blog through his link) and he said on his blog that you were up again!
I'm glad. And I'm glad too, that the cats (you told me their names?) are rescued on this one.

Margaret...first of all Happy Birthday, I know I'm late, but I couldn't help it...I didn't know about you until Peter sent me over.

I'm sorry that you have had some blogging problems already, but I hope this doesn't discourage you from blogging.

I'll be 62 years old next month, I'm from the U.S.A and the state of Kentucky. I'm a great grandmother living with great grandpa. I have a blog, just click on my name to find it. Come over and visit me anytime.
