Taylor: Panic alert! Panic alert! Everyone hide. Jan's on the warpath. Or maybe not. Has Jan calmed down? Is it safe to come out now?
Merci: What's the problem?
Taylor: Haven't you heard? Last night we tried to do a post and discovered Google had made some major changes in how our post photos work.
Merci: Yes, and after hours of trying to help us figure out the new system, we all gave up and went to bed.
Taylor: And when Jan got on the computer this morning, most of our photos had disappeared from our blogs. There was little left except place markers.
Merci: Oh, that must be why those strange sounds were coming from the living room. I was afraid to come see what Jan was -- What was she doing?
Taylor: After the initial shock - moaning, crying, ranting? I have no idea. I've been hiding and feared this was the end of our blogging. I haven't been here but a few months, but for you guys, losing years of photos could kill your desire to blog.
Merci: So why are we posting now?
Taylor: Jan went round and round until she was dizzy, and she's not sure which setting change was successful, but suddenly all our pictures were back.
Merci: Oh, so this is a victory post. Good let's break out the champagne and celebrate our rapid return to blogging.
Taylor: We don't have any champagne.
Merci: Well, the least Jan could do is to split a t-bone steak with us.
Taylor: You know we never have steak around here.
Merci: Okay, well break out a - What do we have to celebrate?
Taylor: Hope for a blogging future?
