A quick fix

Re my post about the loss of the editing pencil, The Broad has directed me to another blog - Perpetually in Transit - where the quick fix has been posted by Perpetua. Since Perpetua is generous enough to suggest we all copy her post, I will do so. But first, the raison d'etre behind the change. Blogger advised:

We are doing this to provide more support for managing content locally. If we receive a removal request that violates local law, that content may no longer be available to readers on local domains where those laws apply.

And what is the "this" Blogger was talking about? It is a change in the URL from xyz.blogger.com to xyz.blogger.co.uk or whatever. Doing that has removed all the quick fix tools such as the spanner and screwdriver, the pen, etc.

If that has happened to you - and it applies only to bloggers outside the US - here is the fix, couresty of Perpetua:

Open your blog, then edit its address in your browser address bar. Delete the .co.uk or .fr or whatever it may be, then after the word blogspot add .com/ncr and hit your return key. This takes your blog address back to blogspot.com and Hey Presto! all the Quick Edit tools are back.

And talking of "have you noticed", have you noticed the weather forecast across on the right? Three days of bright sun! Yesterday was warm and sunny, too, with the afternoon temperature hitting 19.5 - that's about 66 or 67 for those still using the old money. I had a most enjoyable walk with the dog up the Waterhall valley. There were dozens and dozens of tiny tadpoles swimming about in the dewpond and I heard my first chiffchaff of the year. Two weeks today will be Good Friday and we will be on my cousin's farm anxiously awaiting the return of the house martins. At least, I expect we will still be waiting for them as they don't usually arrive until mid April.

Oh, sure, rub it in!

Yeah, and the wind speed is in miles-per-hour. So the Old Money apparently still has value... ;-)

Skip - you should just come to sunny Sussex!

Buck - we are terribly confused with a mix of imperial and metric measurements.

Oh, it's sunny today ...and a breeze, now, that will cut you.
