A Big Thank You.


Good Afternoon, firstly today I would like to say a big thank you to dear Jeannette for choosing my journal as one of her Guest Editors choices. I have had so many comment it has taken me ages to read all the comments and visit the rest of the journals she chose, it has been great fun and reading so many new journals that I have not visited before. I installed a world map on my journal and it is so interesting if you click on it, it tells you where all your visitors come from I have had US, Canada and the farthest away was Australia and of course here in GB. If you would like one of these maps just click on mine and Bobs your uncle follow the link from there.

I am having a problem and I was wondering if it is happening to anybody else. If I have read a journal from America when I close it I get numerous pages coming up of that journal and it will not stop, I have eventually to close down my PC is this happening to anybody else or do you know what I can do to stop this other than closing down.

Stuart and I have been really enjoying the Olympic Games you

know what armchair sports lovers we are. Our track cyclist have been doing so well winning all those medals. It’s a pity all the swimming finals have been while we have been asleep I thought we would have been OK knowing the usual schedule but it was changed to fit the US audience which was a bit disappointing for us. Still the cycling and the Athletics have worked out better.

Can’t do an entry and not mention the weather well today is quite nice sunny spells and warmish so no complaints today.

Till next time take care. Love

I am so glad you got lots of new people Joan and you enjoyed visiting others.  Yes, but only lately have I had that problem you mention from time to time and yesterday and for the last couple of days, when I go to a journal sometimes AOL throws me offline so I think it is their fault.  I do not know how to fix it.  Quite a nice day here today as well.  I have a map as well but it does not tell you where people are from, only gives dots.  My farthest away is Singapore, I know from my tracker and I also have one from Sweden.  Amazing who reads us or at least has a look.

Hi Joan, I keep forgetting about the time zone and I thought "good evening?". It is still morning here. Can't imagine what's up with the U.S. journals doing that but just aol having fun I guess. Glad you enjoyed all the comments and other journals. So I suppose aol is worth putting up with after all:)  Gonna check on the maps:).....alice

hi; just popped over to say congrats on being a guest editor's pick this week!!

I am also enjoying the Olympics; its fun to watch the gymnastics, swimming events, and now with track and field starting, that's another favorite of mine

I'm not sure why you keep getting those extra pages when you read an American journal; odd; I hope someone can help you figure it out; I'm so computer illiterate

enjoy your day!

Congrats Joan and well deserved too, I might add!!
I've had the mutiple window thing happen to me before as well, and it's most annoying and a bit frightening too!

Stopping by to thank you for visiting my journal and I do hope you'll continue to come back.  I was one of Jeannettes picks this week too and have been doing the same...trying to catch up on all the alerts and read the journals she choose.  I'll put your journal on my alerts so that I can keep in touch with you.  I've had no problems like yours, but have opened alerts to find no entry there at all.

Hi Joan, visiting you via Magic Smoke. Congratulations on being a Guest Editor pick!

My husband and I also love the Olympics, and we can get coverage all day long. I'm sorry you can't see more of what you want to watch, but there are only so many hours in the day!

All my best,
