Comments and cannonball

.
You see this? It is a heavy old Turkish cannonball.
Not that I want to hurl it an anyone or anything, BUT . . . Blogger is making a mess of our comments for the last week or so!

My blog's list of your beloved comments goes crazy somewhere in between Comment Moderation and Publish.
AND, many of the comments that I have left at your blogs have disappeared.
.
So please do not think I am ignoring you, dear friends.
Hopefully Blogger will fix this soon. According to the Help Forum, many are encountering this problem right now.

Very strange. I don't moderate my comments but I did have one day last week where my comment total for that day's post was consistently one less than it should have been. It corrected itself eventually though. Hope yours get sorted soon.

Cool cannonball. Looks heavy.

I thought maybe you had joined a shot put team?!

About the Russian Museum on my blog today - they had an AMAZING icon collection last year in October! I had a client appreciation dinner right in the middle of the gallery! I'll take you there if you come to the Twin Cities!

Well. The cyber world is just as imperfect as the rest of creation, and when it has a glitch it is just as annoying! I hope your comment problems are healed soon!

It might be a kind of virus or something. I'm experiencing similar thing, Dina. Your comments were safe though.

Was this cannonball part of your finding in your last dig?

«Louis's» recipe blog and his "Frog Blog" got all buggy and Blogger would only ignore his requests for help - to the extent of hiding the "report a problem" page, so he quit writing to those blogs. He intended to move them to a new platform, but he got busy opening his espresso shop and never moved them.

«Louis» suggests you hurl the cannonball at Google/Blogger....

The cannon ball reminds me of the stone cannon balls we saw while in Rome.

It's a great photo of the day, especially when you describe your frustration with blogger. :-)

Your comments have come through on my site without interruption, I think. And I thank you for them, Dina. Hope all is back to normal for you soon.

At least I got your last one, and it is indeed a kind of wall anchor. It was used to tie down and bind large supporting walls made of dry stones.

PS We have such a cannon ball lodged into a church tower after a battle between English and Dutch naval forces sometimes in the 17th Century

Leave it to you to demonstrate with an amazing artifact! I hope the problem clears up. In the meantime, thanks for the Turkish cannonball.

Ann said...

where did you find that canon ball? Were you tempted to take it home?

Kay said...

Oh dear! I haven't seen that yet. Blogger has done a few crazy things but I'm just keeping my fingers crossed.

Great photo, and your (ahem) subtlety is wonderful.

Pietro said...

I forgot: it's a nice image, of course.

Pietro said...

With this photo you well describe your feeling, Dina. Some days ago it happened to me that the total of my blog comments was not right, but the day after it was ok.

This one made me think of Jaisalmer in India, where old stone cannonballs are spread on top of the city walls (you can check it on my travel blog if you like).

Dina, I was having the same problem with comments on the last days too... a total mess!

Dina said...

Shalom to all. Thanks for your humor and encouragement.
My neighbor friend who lives just two terraces down from me found the cannonball. It was in the ground. A trench was dug in order to build a wall and that's what he discovered.
It is a mystery to me why there would have been Turkish cannonballs in our area.
