WP is Being Fickle ~ 12/6/20

I still cannot like and comment on my iPhone and iPad as much as I used to. Somehow on certain sites, WP does not recognize me as being logged in. If I am lucky, I can type in my name, email and web address to add a comment. Then sometimes I get all the way to the end of the entries only to receive a message “sorry, your comment could not be posted”. My guess it that is for folks who moderate comments. Just my hunch.

Despite the occasional ability to comment, the like button is still generally a no-go about 1/2 the time. And I have no idea why I can like some posts and not others. I made a guess that WP would allow me to like and comment on people I follow but that is not the case either. WP is just plain fickle. Choosing for me.

I’ve tried all the tricks. Removing the app and re-adding it. Logging in manually instead of automatically. In minutes, the issues start in all over again by WP forgetting who I am and reverting back to more fickleness.

I am not often at my desktop which retains full functionality. Maybe I will plan a desktop catch-up day. Or something else that allows me to be an active participant in something I love so much. WP the forum that saved me when I needed it most. Dramatic as that sounds. I’m just joshing. Kinda, sorta, maybe. Hobbies are good things. Life savers. Or they can be.

Now to close with a plea. If you’re so inclined the Dub household could use your prayers. Just general prayers for health and mental well being. Peace. And we will return in kind.

My roots are showing and not the ones on the top of my head. Well okay, those are showing too. In pre-Covid times. I would’ve been to church daily. I would have lighted enough candles to start a blaze. I miss the smell of the well polished pews and waxed floors. And all the other memories of our shelter from the storm.

As always, more to come.

Jim gives us alligator, crocodile, lizard, snake, turtle as prompts. First thought was Elton John singing “Crocodile Rock” and I almost immediately thought of Jim Morrison with his moniker of “Lizard King”. Ultimately I went with ELO’s “Don’t Bring Me Down” Songwriter: Jeff Lynne. More at the wiki

You got me runnin’, goin’ out of my mind
You got me thinkin’ that I’m wastin’ my time

Don’t bring me down
No, no, no, no, no
Ooh-ooh-hoo
I’ll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down

You wanna stay out with your fancy friends
I’m tellin’ you, it’s got to be the end

Don’t bring me down
No, no, no, no, no
Ooh-ooh-hoo
I’ll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down

Don’t bring me down, groos
Don’t bring me down, groos
Don’t bring me down, groos
Don’t bring me down

What happened to the girl I used to know?
You let your mind out somewhere down the road

Don’t bring me down
No, no, no, no, no
Ooh-ooh-hoo
I’ll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down

You’re always talkin’ ’bout your crazy nights
One of these days, you’re gonna get it right

Don’t bring me down
No, no, no, no, no
Ooh-ooh-hoo
I’ll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down

Don’t bring me down, groos
Don’t bring me down, groos
Don’t bring me down, groos
Don’t bring me down

You’re lookin’ good, just like a snake in the grass
One of these days, you’re gonna break your glass

Don’t bring me down
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Ooh-ooh-hoo
I’ll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down

You got me shakin’, got me runnin’ away
You got me crawlin’ up to you everyday

Don’t bring me down
No, no, no, no, no
Ooh-ooh-hoo
I’ll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down, down, down, down, down, down

I’ll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down

Last week sucked, not gonna lie. Also not gonna belabor the point because time keeps ticking forward. This time is a family affair I am not carrying the burden alone. Damn that’s something special isn’t it?

Without further ado, here is the roll call.
