Capital Sin, Apocalypse Wow

Okay, I realize I've been away from Blogger for a while but:

Since when do we have to answer trivia questions to access our dashboards?

And does Blogger really care whether I know the capital of Texas?

(Now, I'm not sayin' I got it wrong, mind you. Nope, not sayin' that at all. I mean: I got on here, right?)

I admit that "Do you know the 37 things you should hoard before the coming disaster?" has me a bit stumped though.

(Hmm, after looking at some of my post titles I'm thinking that I should know the answer to that one....)

  1. Hi Nancy,
    The ads go right across my dashboard! Is there a way to get rid of them?

    I hope you feel better soon!(Hee,hee- I just left that comment about my non-abs on your blog and there's an ad flashing below me of a woman grabbing her belly bulge and it claims: 1 SHOCKING tip to KILL belly fat.
    I was tempted to click on it but, if I'm being honest, I'm quite attached to my belly roll...)

  2. Blessed Christmas Feast to you Mary! You have been in my thoughts and prayers (especially when I look at 333!)

  3. Welcome back Mary! Hope you are doing well. Guess I've not been away from my blog long enough to have that odd experience! Bless YOU!

  4. Hi Theresa,
    And to you! I hope you (and yours) are well, my friend! (Theresa, it's so weird but...I'm actually sleeping pretty well! Who knew that this is how regular people felt - I certainly forgot. It makes me realize the terrible toll insomnia takes.)

  5. Hi Monica,
    Thank you - it's good to be back :) Merry Christmas!

    I'm guessing that we are stuck with all the ads even on our dashboards? I may as well forget about putting up links anymore too...

  6. So wonderful to see you here again! I haven't seen the questions you've mentioned on Blogger.. yikes. Do you have to answer them CORRECTLY to get on?!? Double yikes. If I seem to disappear, it could be that I got a Math question and am trying to multiply 2 times 1......

  7. Welcome back Mary! I've been thinking and praying for you and your family! May God bless you during this Christmas Season!

  8. Hi Nancy! What? This doesn't just happen on MY dashboard, does it? Yikes, is right! Well, there was no x to close them and they are blocking my list of posts and other areas of my dashboard. I answered it just to see if I could get it out of my way :)
    They better not send me any math questions...

  10. I’m just dropping by to let you know I’m presenting you with a ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award. Please stop by my December 29 post at the Cloistered Heart - http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2012/12/blog-awards.html . I had temporarily forgotten that you’ve begun posting again, so this will lead you to a Breadbox Letters post at http://thebreadboxletters.blogspot.com/2012/12/blog-awards.html Boy, what a scavenger hunt I’m leading you on, huh?! But I am truly grateful for the blessing of your inspiring blog.

  11. Mary,

    Lovely to see you back. I was going to email to see if you were okay but I was too slow putting that thought into action...

    Questions? I have trouble remembering the answers to security questions, the ones you set up for yourself... What's your favourite colour? What's the name of your best friend? Should be simple but it's not!

    God bless!

  12. LOL
    I am glad you are back! Missed you!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  13. I'm confused. Are these adverts and questions only on US Dashboards? I don't get any on my Dashboard. Not that I want them ...

    God bless.

  14. Hi Sue,
    How are you? I never remember the answer to those security questions either! Can't even keep track of my passwords for that matter.

  15. Hi Colleen,
    I missed you too! Can I come visit? We just got hit by two snowstorms in a row and it's pretty frigid up here. Brrrr!

  16. Hi Victor,
    I don't know what's going on with the ads. I guess I'm the only one having this problem but I can't figure out why. I don't have adsense enabled or anything and why would they be across my dashboard even if I did? Hopefully I'll figure it out. It's driving me bananas.

  17. Adverts for bananas are never straight are they? Especially if you're driving, as you say, and they're on your dashboard. At least they're not on the windscreen.

    God bless.

  18. They stick them under the windshield wipers around here!
