And Blogger Wins

I don't know what's going on, but approximately 12 hours ago, I sat down and composed a positively stimulating post. There were pictures; there was jaunty banter; I shared parts of my soul (I may be a little over dramatic at this last part), but alas (when in Rome) it was not to be.
I have tried again and again throughout this day to post and the best that I can come up with right now (ie. 12 hours later!) is that I'm not meant to show you pictures today; at least not the 5 that I had selected and since my 'text only' test message worked and I want you to know that I am still here...busy sewing and knitting and baking; boy, it was a good post! I decided to try again with different photos.
I have DSL, but after I've uploaded my pictures it asks me if I want to 'connect' and then tries to dial up a connection...which it can't and doesn't need to, because I'm already online, but when I cancel then the whole system thinks I'm working offline and I've only gotten back this far, by going in the 'back door' through my emails. I'm pretty proud of the fact that I can figure out this much, but annoyed as all get out that I can't figure out what 'their' problem is; I don't know who 'they' are, but they sure have a problem!
So here I sit, sipping tea, longing for bed, and hoping against hope that when I hit save and then publish that at least it will not all have been for naught! ( I spent some time on the weekend with some English and well educated friends...can you tell?)
I wish I could share some more wonderful insights (AND PICTURES!!!), but I'm really tired; so good night everybody.
Maybe tomorrow I'll try just one picture....or maybe next week.
And PLEASE, if anybody knows what I'm talking about here and can offer some advice, I would love to hear from you.
Thank-you and good luck with your computer.

I had some problems posting earlier this year and then everything seemed to be OK again. No trouble since. If you're going to do a long post, maybe type the test up in a Word doc first, so you still have it in case Blogger doesn't co-operate.

I encourage you to try posting the pictures again tomorrow. I'm dying to see what you've been up to.

Sorry you are having technical difficulties but glad you are still out there.
