Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Now that was a LOL moment for me.
I can really hear these two saying such things.

PS I really love your header picture, so clean and full of spring! :)

Debora . . you have an apostrophe before "thingsthat . . " etc in your URL in the Linking List, so browsers can't open the page unless the reader spots what's wrong. That's probably why you have only 2 comments so far on your amusing post.

Thanks for your comment on my MFM.

You ask how I found the error in your link (No 27) on Stony River's link list.

When I clicked your link, my browser (Safari on a Mac) said "Cannot find the page "http://'things etc.
I guessed the apostrophe was a typo, and when I erased it (in my URL bar) your page opened OK.
I think only Stony River can correct the error in your link on her list. The best you can do for yourself is make a new link on the list - without the typo, of course!

Best regards

I use Mac's Safari browser (like Dr. FTSE?) and spotted the mistake in your URL no bother. Something else Windows 7 doesn't do properly? (I know Bill Gates Rules the World, but one day the world will rumble him!)

I like your interpretation of the picture-prompt. Posted mine very late.

Lucy Westenra said...

Debora . . when I click your new links, my URL bar (on my Mac) still shows
Notice the apostrophe after//

and my browser screen says "Safari cannot open the page http://'www.thingsthatarelovely.blogspot.com/"

I can't tell you how the apostrophe gets into your links when you put in your URL, but to open your post correctly, all I need to do is erase the apostrophe in my URL bar and press "Enter"

Hope this helps!
