well, boo guys - i can't tell you how much i dislike captivas and now i have to go back to using one since i'm suddenly getting bombarded with spam. idiot people - those and the people that send viruses are just such losers really. *sigh* i apologize - i had really streamlined the place because i wanted the blog to be quick and easy to navigate and read. i thought about not allowing anonymous comments - but there are some people that come from wordpress or other venues so i didn't want not to hear from them.
so, this weekend....valentine's day huh? yeah. that's about all i have to say about that. if only i could convince the love of my life to move to montgomery and stop calling me at 2:30 in the morning. my day could be sooo much the better. *laugh* i will rather focus on the fact that it's the last week of carnival and fat tuesday is coming one week from tomorrow. you know what that means? 40 days of lent. you know that means????? it's 47 days until good friday - one of the recognized signs of spring. here in the south, good friday is the first day of planting for the veggie garden! spring...yes, spring.
hope that cheers you up.
what....oh no....I think I understood what you're trying to say....ReplyDelete
I mean I totally understand idiot people....that made total sense....can we help somehow ?
and valentines day....I'm sending my extra cupid down your way with a fresh new bag of really sharp arrows, k ?
WOW...see that's what sucks about living up here...we have to wait till the 1st week in MAY to plant!!!!ReplyDelete
I HATE spammers too!!!!
I had an issue too. I started using comment approval, but it was such a pain. Why can't all people just be good...ReplyDelete
yep, spammers are what keep me having the crazy words to type into my comments too. I just leave it with approval status, as much of a pain as it is. Been a while since I got hit but the minute I let things get loose again... BAM. Hang in there,.. oh, re: the two a.m. phone calls.... I'd have a talk with that boy! haha! :)ReplyDelete
i understand you wanting to make it easy to comment...2am calls...you must love him!ReplyDelete
What is Valentines Day? Oh that's right just another. A day were single people are made to feel even more unloved.ReplyDelete
Nothing against Valentines day but there will be not cards, or flowers, or hug, chocolates or deep felt I love you's headed my way.
stupid spammers. so SO very annoying.ReplyDelete
This is a gorgeous photo, though...i love all the textures.
and ohhh, spring...bring it on...
Spammers...a pox be upon them!!!ReplyDelete
Nice timetable for the arrival of Spring. Can't wait! We're getting another 5-8 inches today on top of the 18 we already have. Bleh.
The WV seems to help with spammers. Up here, we don't plant until just before Mother's Day. Well, you can put in peas, of course and hope it snows on them once or twice. Peas are happy that way.ReplyDelete
l love this photo..i do not love spam.. i love your spring reasoning ..ReplyDelete
I have turned my WV on and off. Each time I've had it off...I get loaded with spam comments. I hate them! So once again I turned it back on and will leave it on.ReplyDelete
2 a.m. phone calls huh? Have you been holding out on us?????
Spamming is SO annoying! The funny ones though are the ones I get in my email junk.ReplyDelete
"Hi, I'm Spanitam (whatever). I need help fleeing from my country and my abusive Uncle. All you need to do is send me your back account number."
Right, so that my life can be totally shitty too? No thanks!
back=bank... sorry, I got heated!ReplyDelete
Boo on spammers too!ReplyDelete
I've been getting some
recently too. SO annoying!
Yes, Spring... I miss your
uggh...spammers have been awful on my blog, too. i was deleting comments everyday because of it. on my new wordpress blog there is a spam blocking widget that i applied to my page...i hope it works.ReplyDelete
oh, and spring...i can't wait. i need more sunshine. hasn't this been the rainiest and grayest fall and winter ever? uggh...hurry up beautiful spring!
Girl... we can wear white shoes again after Easter to LOL!!!! Late nite love calls are da bomb and you know it!!!ReplyDelete
Boo spammers, yay spring! I hate using the stupid word verification on my blogs, but I'm sick of chinese porn or whatever it is that is attacking my blogs.ReplyDelete
so far i haven't gotten much spam, but i don't get more than 10 comments a post anyway.ReplyDelete
spring will be here before you know it. hang it there.
I suppose that there is one nice part of not having a ton of followers, almost no spam for me. Sucks to have to put on Captchas but we're here anyway!ReplyDelete
2am calls sound interesting. :)
Spring would be really lovely right about now. Unfortunately, I live in a place that may be summer in March or may snow in July if it's an odd year (I've seen both of these in the last 7 years). There's no real knowing spring is here until it is. Boo.
Yay for Spring! Boo for spammers!ReplyDelete
I had to disable anonymous comments a few weeks ago due to spam, in order not to have to resort to the letters/numbers thing. I didn't realize that meant the folks from other formats couldn't comment..ReplyDelete
spring is a comin'!!:) -- sooner for you than me.ReplyDelete
Whoa good friday already!? I can't believe it! Gee the year's going fast.ReplyDelete
Re: the spammers - you should be so lucky! Haha I think only popular blogs get them, I've been bypassed!
okay... I think I am finally ready for spring, but not summer:)ReplyDelete
The internet is both a blessing and a curse. You'd think people have more to do than be destructive for no reason.ReplyDelete
Lovely picture- you know, I live right here with my valentine- and I still can't get into it- I think I am cynical- we really feel like we show our love everyday- do we need valentines day to underscore it? oh well- the chocolate is fun, the kids love making and receiving cards- so it all works out. We just decided nearly a decade ago to not place expectations on ourselves to do anything extravagant for V-Day- just daily hugs, cuddles and kisses and I am good :)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous photo Char! Oh I know what you mean about those spammers--and the funny thing, do they really think anybody's going to buy these things by leaving them in the comments? 2 am calls sound suspiciously valentine-like...:)ReplyDelete
Yay!!! Spring! I even made a spring apron the other day. Although, weirdly enough, I'm actually enjoying winter. Which is new.ReplyDelete
And btw...I was thinking of doing more etsying and promoting come spring...found socialmention.com which led me to your link of crafts/artists. That really made me smile. : ) Thank you so much for thinking enough of my creativity to include me in that list. You're awesome.
And don't worry...I don't mind the captiva stuff or whatever it's called.
those stupid spammers! i wish they would just get a life. their success rate must be .00000001% and they keep on with their stupid activities! grrr!ReplyDelete
Spammers are the worst! Ben can talk about this subject for the rest of the day. It fires him up. Being in IT, he is all for cleaning it up and making it spam free. That's in our fantasy world.ReplyDelete
I love your photos Char. You are so very clever and congratulations on being part of Blog It Forward. I saw your blog in the list. Only the best blogs are on it. You deserve it. :)
I really like this shot, very dark...in an artistic way.ReplyDelete
This photograph is crazy interesting in a good way.ReplyDelete
