Here's something that has happened to me a lot, lately: I click to comment on someone else's blog and my comment does not go through the first time; I get a message in red that says, "Your request could not be processed; please try again." I click to post the comment again and sometimes it goes through, sometimes it does not. If it fails to post the second time, I am presented with word verification (which wasn't there at the beginning of my valiant effort to comment), type in the word, and my comment finally appears.
This happens several times a day. I always persist until my little blurb is officially added, but I think this might be discouraging to some folks. There are certain blogs where it always occurs. Ora's is one.
Just another of those things that make me go "Hmmm".
On a different subject, I'm trying to figure out a way to put my music system in the computer room ( spare bedroom now that I have the daybed). I spend a huge amount of time in here, and I know I'd get a lot more use from it in this room. I have it in the bedroom now, because I thought I'd turn it on at bedtime, to lull me to sleep; I've found I prefer my Grace Internet Radio for that purpose, though. The time of day when I really want to listen to the radio/CD player is in the morning; right now it's in the bedroom where Cliff is sleeping, and he doesn't get up until at least 10 A.M., thanks to the wacky shift he's working at his job.
This is such a small room, though, that I'll need a not-too-big table of some sort on which to place the radio. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for such a table. Garage sales will be starting up in a couple of months.
Oh, thanks to all the comments on my "hoarding" entry. Dee from Tennessee, I believe I'll do as you did and buy a CD "storage thingie"; perhaps an album-type one. I'll toss the jewel cases. Problem solved. "Pudge450" shared some wisdom: Katrina taught her that all that "stuff" isn't so important after all. (I do hope I'm right about saying "her"; the profile doesn't tell me much.)
Right now I'm considering the bookcase I have in my bedroom. I love each and every book therein, but how long has it been since I've read a single one of them? Trust me, it's been ages. Maybe I need to have a few book giveaways here on my blog.
