This is the new me...




    As you can see, I have changed the layout of my blog. I'm very excited about it, because I think it will give me more scope for photos and text.



    In the meantime, however, I have a question to ask. I've tried Google to no avail. It's a silly little question about a silly little problem, but it is annoying me.


    When I copy a verification word on someone else's blog or web page, my iMac wants to autofill it. Let's say the word is animate: okay, the computer remembers the word antler from two months back, and tries to put it in. (I've used real words in my examples, although real words hardly ever appear for verifications.)

   This is a very small problem, as I said, and has actually seldom resulted in a failure to verify, or whatever it's called when you type in the wrong word, but I find it very annoying. "Shut UP, computer, I know what I want to type, and that's NOT it!" You know the feeling.
     
    So I thought I'd include this question in my introduction to "the new me" just in case anyone has an answer.
Thanks,
Kay
Success!! The very first person to read my blog was my husband, who emerged from his office (two rooms away from my computer in the dining room) and showed me how to get rid of that autofill thing. Posting questions to my blog really works!!

I see you carry one of those great travel chair canes with you. Aren't they the handiest things in the world. I especially love it in places where we tender on a cruise. People are lined up in droves, usually in the blazing hot sun, waiting to get back on and at least I have a seat while I wait. I get a lot of envious glares, however.

Carmen, you're right. People get jealous when I'm the only one sitting down. LOL

Ebie said...

Kay, I think, in my opinion, is to clear your "cache".

I like your new layout too!

Ebie said...

Ooops, I did not see your update. Glad your hubby was able to help!

Kay L. Davies said...

Thanks, Ebie. Actually, I tried clearing my cache and that didn't work, so I'm glad he was able to help, too. Now I can't remember what I did, but whatever it was, it worked.
Glad you like the new layout.

Julie said...

Yes, I like your new layout too, Kay. Very uncluttered. Go for it, girl!

Mr Puddy said...

This is beautiful new look of your blog. Feel fresh !

Mara said...

Nice! It was the first thing I noticed (while slightly drunk): the posts were on the other side of normal. And as long as you can get more or better photo places (drink really kicking in now)....

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Mara -- You are TOO funny. ;~)

Nice! We may want to our blog look now too. :)

Jo said...

Love your new layout, Kay. Yes, the photos were on the other side and you look great on your photo. I'm glad your hubby sorted your word varification out. Yes, the non-words that appear in this are very strange. I actually had a real one today: "hence"! Have a great day. Jo

That's so funny Kay -- my husband and I sometimes e-mail each other interesting tidbits when we're each on our individual computers -- from one room to the other, so to speak. But I love that you could post a problem and he answered.

I like the new look

HI Kay, you know what in the Philippines, as a show of respect to those older than you are and if its a woman ... we call them TITA... in your case .. I'll call you Tita Kay... sounds really great... You're awesome.. love your blog... I envy your walk-along chair too... thanks for dropping by.

Francisca said...

Fresh new look Kay! Yay! Tita means aunt... and here everyone likes to call people by some family title... but I won't start calling you Ate... sister. :-D It was great to travel with my mother in the years she was in a wheel chair... we were always whisked to the front of the line.

Like Sallie, I was amused at the picture of Hubby picking up your plea and rushing in before the competition could get a word in! ha ha!

Leslie said...

Love the new blog look, Kay! Very clean and fresh.
