and Sneaky!

A fellow blogger came up with this sneaky solution! Thanks Vero! 
"I don't think so these people don't have time to spare for the little bloggers like us.. I found something out which helped me to solve at least a small part piece of the puzzle. I noticed, every photo of mine that was rejected as too big was shot with the the zoom. I went ahead and cropped the picture via the windows snipping tool. The cropped pictures are all accepted, but when I tried to use the original one... it was again rejected. So far I am good now and able to add the cropped pictures. It must have something to do with the MB of the original. Not sure if that is of help for anyone.

Tarnation and Frustration

Has anyone else encountered this annoying message
from Blogger. I have moved a ton of files off of Picasa
and I still get this message.

"Whoops! You're out of space. You are currently using 100% of your 1 GB quota for photos. Upgrade storage
Photos are stored in your Picasa Web Albums account and are included in your 1 GB free quota for photos. Additional storage you purchase is shared between several Google products and is in addition to your free quota. Learn more"

Is this Googles way of telling me "Happy Thanksgiving"???
Am I going to have to move to Word Press?
If any of you have a suggestion please comment!

No this is not some strange American pre-Thanksgiving
tradition where we place bowls on the floor for cats.
 This morning after a horrendous windy rainy
night we discovered our dining room ceiling seeping water
from an improperly installed storm window above on the
second floor. (work done by previous owners...not us!)
Hence the plastic and towels in bowls to catch drips.
Russell did a temporary fix with the roofer so no more leaking.
All is dry now and the roofer/window guy will be here
when the rains stop to help us permanently repair and stay dry!

I love watching families playing on the beach-
long after dark the kids and parents enjoy their time.
Unlike Americans who seemingly are so structured
that they take their kids off the beach once the sun begins to set.
Too bad.
