Tags, Broccoli and WV Update

Hey, happy Monday to you all.  It's Cameron here again.  The other Funny Farmers chose me to do today's post.  Guess they don't mind I called myself the handsomest dude the other week.

Oh, wait, I get it now.  We were tagged by two bloggers - Katie Isabella and Austin - and we ... um, one of us has to answer some questions.  I'm not very good at answering questions. Maybe one of the others would like to answer these?  Hey, where'd they all go?  Never mind.  I can do this. 

1. Describe yourself in 7 words:
Handsome, dapper, trim, loveable, loving, intelligent, and mellow.

2. What keeps you up at night?
Nothing I can think of, but I did keep everyone up the night I accidentally pushed a dish drainer full of artillery onto the floor.  Jan shouldn't keep such dangerous weapons lying around the house.  "Silverware and pots," she claimed, but I know we were under attack.

3. Who would you like to be?
A horseback rider.  To add a little excitement to my life.  Wait, right now I'd rather be a magician so I could make the other Funny Farmers appear and answer these questions too.

4. What are you wearing right now?
A tuxedo.  Do you think I should ask Jan for a top hat to go with it?

5. What scares you?
"Silverware" bombing the floor at 3 am.

6. The best and worst of blogging?
The best is meeting so many nice bloggers.  The worst is losing so many to the bridge.

7. Last website you've visited?
That's easy.  This one, of course - Blogger posts.

8. One thing you'd change about yourself?
I don't know.  Do I need changing?  Jan says I'm perfect as I am. 

9. Slankets, yes or no?
 I have no idea what a slanket is, so my answer is yes or no. 

10. Tell us something about the dog, cat or person that tagged you:
Katie Isabella is the hug bug who moved in to comfort her new mom after Admiral Hestorb sailed to the bridge.  She's beautiful and regal.. 
Austin is a handsome tuxedo cat (like me) and very self-assured (also like me).  See, I moved in without being invited and Austin's mom posted, "We took him home because he told us to!"

I'm not sure how many I'm supposed to pass this on to - 4 or 7 - and I can't remember which blogs have already participated, but I'll pick 4 and if they've already played, they don't need to play again unless they want to.

We'd like to add to our Saturday post on word verification,  Some who have not turned on word verification or in the past had turned it off are finding it is on their blogs.  So we again suggest if you have a Blogger blog, check your settings. Blog owners do not see WV on their own blogs.

Some are having trouble finding where to turn WV off.  Turning it off is easy.  Finding it is the hard part.  We wrote this out and shared with a couple of bloggers over the weekend and they were able to decipher our directions, so we'll post them here in case any bloggers would like to turn off WV but can't find where Blogger has hidden it.  Our guess - and we stress the word guess - is that when we are all switched to the new interface, we won't be able to turn WV on any more.  Hooray!

On your new interface -
There is a gear icon upper right below the name of your blog. On the drop down menu, click on "Old Blogger interface."

When it switches to old interface, click on
Scroll down to Show Word Verification for Comments? and switch to "No."
Scroll to bottom of page and click Save Settings.

Scroll to top of browser page and click on Try the Updated Blogger Interface to the left of your blog name.

That should take care of it. And heartfelt thanks to each of you for turning off WV - from all of us and a huge host of other WV frustrated bloggers.


  1. THANK you fur posting the TURN OFF the Double The Trouble WV instructions!!
    I am STILL seeing Many Blogs that are continuing to use it.
    I wonder if some might have forgotten that the must SAVE at the bottom... in order for the Change to Stick.
    I hope and pray that MORE turn it off.. and I MOSTLY hope that no one gets any spam and stuffs so that they will KEEP it OFF.

  2. I enjoyed reading your answers! I am also enjoying not seeing that WV thingy as much!

  3. Hahaha! Great answers Cameron :) I can see that like Austin you are full of tuxie confidence!!

    Thanks for mentioning again about the dreadful WV. It is sometimes impossible to put a comment without refreshing several times, so then give up!

    Have a great week x

  4. I enjoyed your answers. And your directions are superb! Thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention! You wouldn't believe how much time mom spent looking for the place to turn off WV. We've always used the new Blogger interface and didn't even know the old one existed. Thanks again!!!

  5. We checked ours twice and are (pretty) sure that it's not on. We've been having a problem with a few non blogger WVs lately. Some of them have all kinds of letters and symbols and are really hard to read.

  6. Oh beautiful Cameron! You made me and Charlie giggle - thank you!! What a fun tag - yay! We loved your answers - of course you are perfect and very brave for fending off the silverware attack! Yay!

    Awww that woofie in the clip is hilarious!! Take THAT Brocolli! LOL!

    Take care

  7. Handsome Cameron..I'm a Hug Bug Tuxie like you and Austin. We should form a club.

    I should not have nor have I ever had the WV. TELL me if it shows up.

  8. WE thinks WV is off on our blog but if you have the time could you check and let us know so the Mom won't stress out about it.

    We enjoyed your answers Camron. Gotta go the Mom has housework to do.

  9. Silverware bombing, bawhahhahaha! This has happened in our house when my feline sister goes looking for a snack at 3 a.m. I have been known to sleep through these incidents, but they always send my mom flying out to the kitchen - she is a light sleeper.

    Your pal, Pip

  10. Great answers. Love that you are wearing a tuxedo right now

  11. So hap-pee to nose more bout you, Cameron! You did a very good job answering those questions.

  12. Oh Cameron! Yous is just the handsomest! Me is so happy that yous answered!

  13. I loved the tuxedo too! Do you normally wear one around the house? Definitely ask for a top hat!

  14. I is confused as to why Jan hasn't gotten you a top hat already.
    Silverware hittin' da floor at 3 am happens heres too...cuz mum is puttin' it away AT 3AM!!!!!!! Poor woman needs to find sumptin else to do at dat hour!

    We has done dis tag but thanks you so kindly furs thinkin' of me.


  15. I think a top hat would make a wonderful addition to your tux :)

  16. That is one silly dog in that video but very cute. Loved your answers to the questions. So far we haven't had any trouble with the WV. We seem to be able to get it every time. Have a great Tues.

  17. Great answers, Cameron! Thank you guys for tagging us. We also got tagged by another blogging pal, so we'll definitely be doing a "tag" post sometime soon. :)

    We turned off that infernal WV thing, too!

  18. Hellooo Cameron and the funny farm gang ~ Yes Cameron when it comes to doing the work everyone disappears. But somebody did the work coming over to my blog and making what was a dreary day alot brighter. Thanks for your encouraging words on blogging.

  19. Dear friends,

    Sorry for not dropping in awhile :) I've been busy working (helping mom) thus kind of forgot to update my blog.

    I might not be able to post as often as before so please head over to my newest post and leave a comment so I could add you on mom's new site. With this we could still keep in contact and it'll easier for me to drop by often to your page :)

  20. Thank you for dropping by and let us know about word verification. We've removed the verification, hope it'll make readers out from trouble :)

    p/s: mom's work in pet magazine now so the magazine its not purely our own. we're just helping by making noises and runs around while mom trying to work on her keyboard :)

  22. Cameron, you got it goin' on! I personally find both silverware bombing and broccoli scary...(great video)

  23. Thank you for your comment on Kizzie's blog and for posting about how to get rid of the word verification. I don't usually get spam, so hopefully this will not become a problem now.


Thanks for coming by. We love to hear from you.
