Ok, I know dial-up is slow, problematic - very -in many ways, but are all these issues I've been having tonight ALL from dial-up?
I thought it would be fun to post a little video that Kate - the 16-year-old here - made last week with her new digital camera. It's just a cute little clip -about 5 maybe 10 seconds maximum of Nina, the cat, perched in the windowsill behind the tree and looking around, ready to make her attack on something. It's definitely not of the caliber of a 3-4 MINUTE video like a u-tube or something like that.
I have tried three times now to upload this little video to a post and ended up canceling the process each time because frankly, I got plain tired of waiting for it to load. This is using Mozilla browser and each time, it just sits there and says it is "contacting Blogger" and I am waiting and waiting and waiting -anywhere from ten to thirty minutes with no change in the message at the bottom of my screen. How the heck long does it take to "contact Blogger" anyway?
Just wondering if anyone else has problems of that nature with dial-up-blogger-firefox, etc.
So, for now, you won't get a chance to see Kate's film work in the video of Nina or also in the little video (about the same size) she did of Kurtis running around the living room the other night. It's not that either of them were ultra great -not material for the Funniest Home Videos or anything like that - just cute is all.
Add to those problems the fact I am not feeling up to par at all tonight - either have some kind of allergy, a sinus infection, or I'm getting an good old fashioned head cold but I feel like crapola at any rate. I'm not running a fever -not warm to the touch anyway - but I am cold - just can't get warm so I am getting these mini-chills but just in my arms. Go figure! I know, my system is just plain weird isn' t it? Add to that my left forearm up just above the elbow is stiff and very achy sore all day today too. And it's one part of my body that's never suffered any type of prior injury that could flare up -no old "football" wounds ya know! LOL
Guess it will just have to suffice to say I am truly getting old and decrepit, aren't I?
Hell of a way to go!
Time for me to pop another Mucinex DM tablet now and pray it begins to kick in and give some results so hopefully, I won't end up with a deep, nasty cough on top of all this stuff - something which also usually happens to me anytime I get a lovely little cold these days too.
I think I'll go dig out a big heavy old afghan, curl up with it on the sofa and put the DVD's in of "The Office" that my grandson (Alex) gave me for Christmas. At least Bill got the DVD player fixed and it's working A-ok now after Maya's little fun-fest a while back when she was feeding loose change into the dvd and vcr slots - her own form of "pay per view" tv ya know!
