Easter, a moveable feast

When I was a child I looked forward to Easter, not for religion, although I did understand about Christianity, but because of the Easter eggs we used to get (I was a child, forgive me).

As I got older I realised that Easter wasn’t on a set day, like the 25 December for Christmas. But it seems to be that it has to run Friday Saturday and Sunday and is linked somehow to the Jewish Calendar? But also to the phases of the moon, so Easter drifts a slowly, then jumps around. Any time between late March and April if I remember. It used to make the Easter break at school a bit odd too. If anyone knows the correct reasons let me know?

I’m lost

Why?

On New year’s eve, without announcement, suddenly my phone version of WordPress switched over to block editor. But I like the classic version. I know how to use it. The new version looks childish somehow. Too simplified? There is something about it that upsets me. It’s not what I chose. It doesn’t look right. I don’t need massive icons to see what I’m doing. It feels dumbed down.

And why change it without asking? No notification…. On a busy day. The last of 2020, with a million things to do. The last thing I need is to have to relearn what I’m doing here. WORDPRESS PLEASE NOTE : I’M A BLOGGER NOT AN EDITOR. AND I DON’T LIKE NASTY LITTLE SURPRISES. Who decides these things anyway? I pay enough for my plan not to be messed up about! Happy NEW Year for tomorrow. Don’t spring anything else like this on me, PLEASE!

I want to delete this thing. I don’t have set opening times…I’m not a shop! can I delete this image? No, I don’t know how – so Ive clicked closed for all the days! Not very professional I know, but I’m not au fait with WordPress Blocks at the moment. Does anyone know how to delete this if I want to?

Its like everything is foggy, unclear, the learning process on WordPress is like learning to drive on a game station. You put your foot down but you don’t know how it works. It does not translate to the real world. Its not like Word or PowerPoint …. I’m confused.

Now Facebook is getting rid of its ‘classic’ pages

Like WordPress, Facebook is changing. There pages are being changed and from September they are closing their ‘classic’ version.

I feel like giving up. Social media takes up too much time anyway. This is ‘nudging’ me away from it….

Imagine, you have learned to drive on the left hand side of the road, you have always driven on the left. When you get to a roundabout you drive into it and go round it clockwise.

Now, suddenly, you are informed you have to drive on the right, drive counter clockwise round roundabouts. You have to drive at 70 miles an hour on minor roads, and 30 on motorways. No training! No question about what you might like. Imposed!

Thank you. Please change the rules for chess and monopoly too. That’s what you have. Power over us poor plebs who have no say in the matter!

Now email problems!

Had an email this morning. Because my email is in someone else’s platform I have to download an app or something so it still works in a few weeks. Why? Because I’ve chosen to run the email address this way I’m not bombarded with adverts and junk. I don’t want to lose my email address so I guess I must comply. But it’s irritating. Why can’t they leave things alone. If you can’t email me soon you will know why!

Cloud bird?

IMG_20200814_230116_963

It was high up in the sky, a cloud shaped like a bird? No shaped like a white dove. A dove of peace.

All around the world people looked up and saw it. The symbol of peace.

We saw it one evening, then again the next day. It was happening everywhere. People were posting images on the Web. On visage journal and quick telegraph!

The government’s didn’t like it. They asked their troops and scientists to investigate. Look at the occurrences. Telescopes were trained on each cloud. Radar and radio telescopes. No sign of a reason. It was a mystery.

A week after it started it ended. People saw Elephants and crocodiles in the clouds, turtles and Teddy bears. But no mote of dust or speck of mist became a dove of peace. People started to miss them. Fights broke out between neighbours, children cried. The world had lost magic. Sadness flew round the world. Maybe one day there woukd be an answer.

Tomato plants no flowers!

We put up two little greenhouses for the tomatoes this year. We’ve given them plenty of food and water. It’s a bit shady, not the usual place we put them, and they have grown leafy, but with very few flowers, and they don’t seem to have set. It’s getting too late for tomatoes now. On the other hand the local shop gave us some very withered and dried up small tomato plants yesterday but they have fruit growing on them. Weird… Anyway I guess I’m lucky we had other produce xxx

What my hubby bought!

_20200620_150742

A train ground signal! Why? It cost £60, he got £5 off. Again Why? He’s going to hang it up in a tree and put a light behind it… Railway memorabilia from the 1960’s…He did have a garden railway but the track got covered by plants.

Men are strange, but I guess women are too. Some go out and spend lots on makeup or shoes. I think I’m just weird. I’ve never been that bothered…

I don’t know what will happen to his train signal. I guess eventually it will rust. But it’s made him happy… Ah well…. At least he’s not into football!

New Editor?

sketch-1590101169724

Has anyone else seen notices on WordPress about a new editor being released? I’m just about OK with the classic editor, and I don’t like the Gutenberg one. Is that the right name for it? Anyway, I am confused. Is the new editor a brand new one or the Gutenberg one? There are posts saying get ahead with it. There were previous ones last year about ‘levelling up’. But I’m not a revolutionary sort of person. I don’t need change every year. Let me use the basic skills I have as a slightly older writer. Don’t force unnecessary change on me. Please.
