I just found out that Hancock Fabrics is going out of business. Right now everything in their stores and on-line is 20% to 50% off. It's a good time to stock up on any sewing, stitching, and craft supplies you need.
In 2011, we announced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.
As part of this plan, starting the week of January 11, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.
On 26 December 2015 our sweet fur-baby Jack ran across the Rainbow Bridge to go play with all of the others that have gone before him.
He had a seizure at 11:30 pm Christmas night and was taken to the vet the next morning where ex-ray's showed a tumor about the size of a big grapefruit that was more than likely cancerous. Given his age (14 yrs.) and condition from the seizure and blood loss from the growing tumor we decided to have him put to sleep.
He will be greatly missed, but will always be in our hearts.
