Lion link

The
I am so happy to have the macbook back and running. I was edgy crabby unsure why for the last few days.... I gave it considerable thought, even got on the bike to workout... Started reading Martha's Beck's Joy Diet Book, took a long nap but to no avail and then POOF, as soon as we had the macbook running again and I could Post, I felt this ....relief... this connection to you guys. To your posts and mine. All is right with my world. The image.....well The Lion was magnificent at Lincoln Park Zoo on Tuesday. Why it took us over 2 years to get to the zoo which is a mile from Zach's University...I"ll never know. As cat crazy as I am and will admit unabashadly, I love the BIG CATS at the zoo. They are so much like our housecats to me. On that note, Lionbrand has a winner of a pattern that I am going to try. The Tweed Stripes Marble Cowl. It is a winner because someone finally designed a cowl that hugs your neck. Most cowls are lovely, but leave me cold.... Seems it is only a matter of working some ribbing for 1 1/2 inches and then changing to st st for 11 inches. It sounds easy too, and I'm all about easy successful knits. I am knitter hear me ROAR (I have not mastered the punctuation and paragraphs in the new BLOGGER format. Very sorry If this all comes out as one paragraph....anyone else having this issue?)

Nive lion photo! What version of blogger are you trying? I was using a new one recently that made me crazy. Posting photos was really difficult. As soon as the ? do you want to switch back appeared, I did, but even what came back was quite a bit different. Crazy, eh? Hope you're feeling lots better now!

I'm a Leo, so I love lions. They are amazing creatures.

Sometimes, I have difficulty with paragraphs on blogger, too. I switched back to the original format, and things are better.

Glad to hear that your world is back on an even keel.

I understand how you feel about your Mac problems. We were without the DSL for two days last week. It was horrible!

The lion is beautiful but my favorite zoo animal is the polar bear.

I haven't had a problem with blogger but I write in Word then copy and paste. It has been working so far but having said that it will all fall apart the next time I post!

Lions are my absolute favorite. I collect them in all forms. And THAT is a magnificent picture.

I love those lazy lions at the Lincoln Park Zoo! They might be my favorite part, or maybe that's the primate house...

Blogger and I do nothing but fight. Of course, Wordpress isn't on its best behavior right now either... Time to threaten with Typepad again.

SHEESH! I understand your frustration with Blogger. I gave up on it about a year ago and use Windows Live Writer, a free program that is so much easier to use for posting. Of course, that probably won't do for a Mac.
