Tags, Broccoli and WV Update
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.
Animal Shelter Volunteer Life
A canine hero protecting the humans from a broccoli invasion has been caught on tape. The hero is a 7-week-old Pomeranian.

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.
