There's either a mouse in the house or bats in my belfry - or maybe both! I dunno, but something strange is going on here!
Earlier today, when I signed in via Internet Explorer 6.0, none of my things that are normally displayed in my sidebar would show up on my screen! But, if I closed IE and went and opened Firefox, my blog showed up with everything intact.
Which is why I posted the entry just below this one about "Confusion Central" because I sure was confused by the missing data when I tried to view my blog via the IE 6.0.
But, since I was able to work with the Firefox, at least I was satisfied I could still post, make corrections, whatever to my blog. And, after I made that earlier entry, I sat down, wrote a long e-mail letter, fed my grandson, talked on the phone to an old friend too for about an hour. Went back to my blog on firefox and surfed a little more then closed it. After that, I reopened my blog on IE and lo and behold, all my links and archives and my index of titles, profile, etc., are back within full view and also, when I scroll down to the bottom of the blog entries, everything that is supposed to be there is in there once again.
How the heck did this happen? I didn't change a thing while I was writing my other post or reading other blogs when I had it open in Firefox, so what happened to return my blog back to looking like its normal self again?
Now, I know programs get "bugs" in them from time to time. I know too, for a fact, we had a mouse here in the house, at least it was visiting over the Christmas holidays because I saw it scurry across the living room floor a couple of times and watched it go behind my bookcase by the fireplace to hide its little self. No one has said that they set a trap and caught anything as yet, so I am assuming the little fellow is still around here someplace.
I'm thinking though that maybe people who know me and have told me in the past, on several occasions too, that I must have "bats in my belfry" that quite possibly that is what has happened.
Yep! Evidently I am really going daft!
