the money shot


thats an old photo
one of my very favorites
 taken a few summers back
 outside riverside park

 toonman and i were taking a walk
 i am not sure 
but 
i think
 it might have been
 fourth of july weekend 2012

 we didnt walk much
 before
 toonman's epic medical adventures 

anyway
 i love that shot 

what i dont love
is google

google lacks any real help
 if you can't figure it out on your own
 or 
you dont find someone
 who had a similar problem 
in the 
not so helpful
 help forums 
you can forget
 ever 
solving
 your problem

 whats my problem
 now
 you ask 

well
 i have both my blogs set up 
so
 if you desire
 you can get 
each new post
 emailed to you

google bought feed burner
  the software 
behind
 email subscriptions 

since google bought it
 well 
lets just say
 like everything else
 google 
its
 not
very reliable

 over the last few months 
email delivery
 of 
my blogs 
has
 been
 less than perfect 

sometimes neither gets emailed 
sometimes only one goes out

 i checked all the settings 
i subscribe
 so
 i can see if it gets delivered or not 
and 
i apologize to anyone 
who subscribes 
for 
the lousy service
 google/feed burner 
is providing 

aaawwwwwwwwwgggh

  1. I agree! It is SOOOOOOO frustrating when things just do not work! I decided not to even venture in to subscriptions. Thanks for the answer on the Rockefeller Ctr. Pic. Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend!

  2. Oh really? Is that what's happening? I get yours by 10pm Pacific time/ 6am UK time pretty regularly, but my other, (all of maybe 9 subscriptions), are all over the place.

    Anyway, Robert and I both love that shot and decided that if we were walking past that "adopt me" dog he's be coming home with us. The R said yes, and we'd name him Thursday and then the next day we'd come back with a Friday and so on and end up wit 40 dogs named after days of the week. (The fact that the week has only 7 days doesn't seem to figure in this) :)

  5. Yes. Blogger is so frustrating at times. But I'm not interested in attempting a move to WordPress. Plus, no site/service is going to be perfect.

    Awesome shot!

  6. You know companies make mistakes but Google's lack of support and dependence on the forums is very frustrating.

    Love the pic.

  7. Such a cute doggie!

    Sometimes blogs, including my writing blog, take hours to show up in a blogroll. Other blogs don't update at all. Yesterday I realized one of the photoblogs I subscribe to has been posting, but I haven't seen notifications in two weeks.

  8. Oh my goodness, this photo is adorable!!

    Yup, Google help is definitely self-help. Been there, done that more than once. xo.
