Testing the waters

The waters are rocky at the moment.  I've been without internet service for two weeks. There was tension between hankering for it, and feeling relief at not having it at my continual beck and call.  Or do I mean being at the beck and call of it?  To my delight, the new modem arrived in the mail Thursday evening - just in time for the Euro 2012 to begin on Friday (yes, that would be a footie reference) but in the course of a lovely online chat with my sister-in-arms, Sarah, I discovered that I cannot access blogger, for some reason.  Every other account and application seems to be working peachy keen, but blogger insists on telling me I've logged out from another location and do I want to log in again?  However I answer that question, I end up in a twilight zone-like loop, getting the same question over and over.  I've spent the past two days (as much as work and sanity would allow) Googling, Binging, and help foruming in an attempt to discover what I am doing wrong, or what I am not doing right.

So, while I am full to bursting with things I want to say, I am unable to say them!  I remain bottled.  Perhaps I am meant to continue is cyber-less silence yet a while.

If this emailing-a-post trick works, I want to let you know that all is well in the world of work and home.  It is feeling more and more like where I belong all the time.

Hope all is well with you,



  1. Yay! Welcome back...and I hope blogger starts behaving for you! Soon!

  2. Tess, I'm not sure what you have for a computer or if you have Firefox or Explorer for a browser, but the problem seems to be that your 'cache' is not clearing when you close. Here is a link to something that might help. I was in the same boat less than a month ago. Let me know if it helps.

  3. Shoot!!! Here is the link Tess lol.

  4. Thank you Bobby; I knew I could count on you to jump in with some help. I tried clearing cookies, to no avail. I'm using Chrome if that makes any difference.

  5. Okay Tess, here is a youtube on how to clear the cache on Google Chrome. Very simple to do. It should work if that is the cause of your problem. Clearing cache is not the same as clearing cookies just to let you know. Let me know if THIS works ok? Here is the link:

  6. Hello Tess! I told you, I've been monitoring your blog. I have been waiting for you too to update your blog posts but this post made me upset. Hope you'll go back to the cyber world soon.

    Take care!

    Nichelle. =)

  7. Bobby, you're a star. It seems to be working now. Phew!

    Hello Nichelle! So nice to see you here. Thanks for writing!

  8. I had that problem with Blogger, too. Using Chrome as the browser. Seems to pop back up every few months, usually when I'm in the middle of writing a post... Chrome still has some issues - there have been some image rendering problems, too, which and others have sent feedback about. But nothing that keeps me from eventually getting a post up.

  9. Hi Avery, nice to meet you. Thanks for visiting the Lighthouse.

    It might have been Chrome - I still don't know for sure. I didn't do anything and it went from not working to working, rather randomly.

    Whatever happened, I'm awfully glad it's back: I now know just how important this blog is to me!
