Catching up on a bit of business....

Remember this?

This is the giveaway celebrating my three years of blogging.  I had published this post earlier several days ago, and just this past Monday announced the winner - Sara1025!  At this point I've not heard from Sara, and there was no apparent way for me to contact her when she left her comment.  If I don't hear from her by Sunday, December 14th, The Husband will draw another name.  I will keep you posted about developments.

Also, on some of the blogs I follow, there has appeared a verification box asking for numbers to be entered when making a comment.  I have learned that it is possible for me to skip that box and go ahead and press "publish."  I don't know if such a box is appearing on this blog when  you make your comment.  If it is, try skipping that step and going ahead to press "publish."  That might work!

That's all for today!  


  1. There is a number check..I don't have one..but many do..
    The Sara that won..if you click on her name does she have a website? You could contact her there maybe?
    A shame she should miss this!

  2. Yes you do have a box Nellie. I hope your visitor returns to get her calendar.
    I hope you have a wonderful day.
    Still raining here. :)

  3. It is strange that I didn't have the number box till we were out of town and using a different computer. I thought that might have been the reason for the verification, but I see that I still have it, so I'll try skipping it and see what happens. Thanks for the tip, Sister, and have a fabulous Friday! The sunshine is beautiful here!

  4. Nellie, I knew something was going on...probably blogger..when I saw so many of those "prove you are not a robot" on many sites. Hope you hear from Sara soon...she may be missing a wonderful gift. Hope you have a great weekend. xoxo,Susie

  5. If Sara has a blog, you might try commenting on there and see if you can get a response.

    Also, this came up on my dashboard last night.

  6. Hi Nellie , I do hope Sara come forward to claim her gift , if not , the hubby will have to pull another name . Hate to see Sara miss out on a wonderful gift .

    I like Susie found there was a lot of "prove you are not a robot' on many sites . I bet Susie is right , blogger is upgrading . Have a nice day ;-D

  7. Hi Nellie. I have noticed it as well. Blogger has another glitsch, what else is new? I am going to try skipping it when it comes up. I hope it is not happening on my blog?

  8. hope she gets it, if not hope someone else will!
    I always have to put in the numbers in the box, it will only jump and show me another number, but there's always a chance! blogger is a strange animal, it often varies for me, hope you have a nice weekend!

  9. Hi Nellie...Well, for the winner's sake, I hope her email surfaces. If it doesn't, oh well, we all get another crack at winning! Susan

  10. Hope Sara contacts you but it will be nice to have another shot at winning. : )

  11. Ooh, yes, the word/number verification. I have tried and tried and TRIED to opt out of it, and it still appears each time I leave a comment on my own blog. Now, at least, it seems to have changed into a more-simple "prove you're not a robot" box to check, but I don't know why the opting-out never worked. Ah, technology!

    Happy new year, Nellie! ♥ 'Glad you had a good day with your "Country Couple."
