MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

I'm baaaacccckkkkkkk!!!

I'm a happy camper!!

Some of you noticed that I was somewhat AWOL last night and part of today and I want to thank you so much for the concerned emails and phone calls I received.  It's nice to know I was missed!!


My blog, my email, and my RSS feed all disappeared from the internet and I was told that my 'access was denied'.  Denied?  What on earth did I do???  After the initial panic subsided, I emailed Google to ask what had happened.  This morning I visited their forum and discovered that this was a world-wide issue, but not for everyone.  We were told that Google was working on it and by mid-afternoon I was up and running again.  Yay!!!

I was so afraid my blog was gone forever and, like an idiot, I don't have a paper copy of all my favourite blogs and email addresses...I was panicked, thinking that I had lost all my contacts.  Needless to say that particular issue will be taken care of!  

I'm so glad to be back among the land of the living, and thank you all once again for your concern and cheering up!

OH! I hate it when Blogger belches and tells me I am following NO BLOGS...AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!! (I don't think I could do a hard copy list---I don't have enough paper!)
I know I have had problens putting posts together, but then I always do so, eh, what's new?
And I am sorry I did not notice you weren't there...I've barely been mentally *here* all day!
But welcome back anyway!!!

XXOO~~♥

Glad you're not AWOL anymore. I didn't realize we lived so close to each other. Actually DH and I are planning to move a little bit south once our home sells, so we might be even closer then.

It's miserable when you lose your connection like that. I do hope you have your blog backed up on a flashdrive, though, huh??? I do,though blogger will only save the text (i think they have ownership concerns about pix, even though all my pix are my own production). But it's good to be able to reconstitute if necessary.

This reminds me to put my email address list on a backup, too! I' ve had more than one crash and had to start from scratch rebuilding it.

Anyway, glad you're around again.
