Blogger Issues

   Some of you may notice, or have noticed, that I had to repost my most recent post because it was accidentally deleted.  Thankfully, we were able to retrieve the post with nothing lost but, the comments.  So, Pat, if you haven't already, please see the comment I put at the bottom of "We Fought The Waves and The Waves Won".  I just thought I'd let everyone know that the reposting was on my end and that, if you got an email or checked the site to find what looked like the same post, there was a reason for it.

   Now, to the actual reason I was going to put up a new post in the first place - comments.  It has come to my attention that some of you are having trouble figuring out how to actually post a comment on our blog.  This is understandable, as BlogSpot (or Blogger) is a little different to navigate than most other blogs (at least that I've seen).  So, if you are one of those people, don't feel bad.  It looked weird to me when I first used it, too.  I will explain.

   If you are looking to leave a comment, there are two different links to look for.  Once you've read through the post and gotten to the bottom, there will be a line that starts with "Posted by . . .".  After my (or my husband's) name and the time of the post you will either see the words "No Comment" or a number with the word "Comment(s)" after it.  For instance, if two people have already put up comments, you will see "2 Comments".  Click on whichever of these two phrases is there. Once you do, scroll back down to the bottom of the post (because you're now on the page for that particular post).  You will see the comments section ready for you.  Type your comment or question and hit publish.   

  Thank you for the comments so far and I look forward to many more.  I apologize for any confusion you may have had.  I hope this clears things up for those of you unfamiliar with BlogSpot.  In case, later on, anyone needs a reminder of what to do, I have changed the note that comes up at the bottom of every post.  It will help guide you through.

   I am including some pictures from our travels so far that didn't, for one reason or another, make it into my previous posts but, are still great.  So, for those of you that were having trouble with comments, this is my little bit of gratitude for your efforts. For those of you that didn't have any trouble, well, enjoy the pictures anyway.

   Please let us know what you think. Feel free to ask questions and leave nice comments. (If no one has commented yet, there will be a "No Comments" link near the bottom of the post. If someone has already commented, there will be a number and the word "comments" beside it. Just click whichever of these is there, click, "add comment" when the window opens, and type away.)



  1. Ah yes, the refrigerator. I think mine is a bit larger than yours but if so, not by much.
    I am considering, if I ever find a cruise lady, before leaving the dock, buying one of the medium size 12 vt box fridge/freeze from West Marine and put in the bilge to supplement the the current 12vt fridge/freezer. Also removing the pressure cooker. I have not used it in years. It will look nice in my storeroom. LOL

  2. How did you improve the insulation for your fridge?
