A BIG DAY!!!!

My "little boy", who is almost as tall as I am, is 13 today!  He is a great little guy with a razor sharp sense of humour.  He will spend most of the evening shooting zombies on his XBox while munching through the assortment of goodies that he requested for his birthday "dinner".  We will be going out to dinner to celebrate properly on Saturday.

Meanwhile, it is becoming clear that people are having increasing problems commenting on my blog.  I will start to look into moving to a different service - any pointers would be more than welcome - assuming you can comment, of course!

Happy Birthday to your "little" boy! Hope he enjoys his special day.

If you're serious about switching blogging platforms, I highly recommend WordPress. They seem to have all the kinks worked out.

Happy birthday to your young man son. What food did he pick for his birthday dinner? I used to enjoy that when my kids had birthdays. Anything goes on the actual birthday.

I personally like Blogger and have had almost no problems. But if I did have problems I would be searching for a different one. It does seem that each time Blogger made major changes available there were complaints for awhile. Remember when so many people tried the new format thingy and for some it was disaster? And now Blogger is pimping their new Blogger Face, which I don't care for.

Terri - Yes, I was thinking of having a look at WordPress.

TechnoBabe - I am not sure - I know that there is mac and cheese in there somewhere, but there are also M&Ms and things like that! I have been happy using this blog site, but don't like it if people have trouble commenting - or indeed if I have trouble replying to comments!

Testing, testing... is this thing on?

Apparently I can comment. Wish I had something profound to say. Tomorrow I will, promise!

A big day, indeed!!!
Happy Birthday to him from Georgia!

I am now using Google Chrome and having no problems commenting...let's see...

Ms. ~K said...

Yes, it works fine! :)

Whoo-hoo, he's a fully-fledged teenager now (eeeeek)! Happy belated to him. Keep your fingers crossed for me - I am about to post this..

btw, I don't know if the problem isa with your site, or with the site of those visiting. I've had problems commenting on Wordpress from time to time, too.

Rock Chef said...

James - I will try to write something that inspires a profound comment!

Mrs K - Thanks! I will pass it on.

Shrinky - I have had that too, but not as often as with blogspot blogs. I might have a flirt with WordPress and see what happens.

Another birthday? Didn't he have one just last year? Another teenager unleashed upon the world.

Happy Birthday and I hope he enjoys his day.

Agg79 - he is a good one - the world would be better if there were more like him. But I guess most parents say that...

They grow up so quickly.

I think each program has it's problems. I had no difficulty posting.
