You’ve been given due warning

I have another library talk this-morning, in a few hours: I’ll be away till lunchtime.

When I get back, I shall take the site off-line and install the new theme I have my beady eye on. Having played with it a bit, I know already that it will not inherit anything much other than text; so almost everything is going to have to be done manually – “or once a year”, as Stringer would often add by way of explanation.   😉

To give you some sort of idea of timing … I can’t ! I mean, I can tell you that it is, in Sydney, Oz, currently a bit before six in the morning – but that doesn’t help anyone reading this later. (Note to self: put time/weather widget in sidebar !)

All I’m able to do is advise that in roughly seven hours from now this site will be offline for an hour or so. Wish I had a magic wand that would let me know everyone’s local time. Sighh …

Here is a cartoon that amuses me greatly, just to keep things sweet:

    I would say that I will wait with baited breath…however, with the time difference, I will merely be asleep and look forward to seeing the new look tomorrow!!

    Indeed, me little love. It is noticeably different (as opposed to scarcely so from the current one to the previous one), but not in a “Mein gott !” kind of way. 😀

    Cool! Have fun with the transition, I hope it goes smoothly, and enjoy the reading 🙂 once again, I wish I was in the audience xx

    Have fun ‘moving the furniture’ or ‘cleaning house’! Just have to say, I love your header image on this blog – of the purple flowers draping over the edge of the wall are gorgeous!
    Cute cartoon, too!

    Offline again? 🙂 You are the queen of offline and of changing your blog. Can’t wait to see the next incarnation.



  9. Wandering Iris 03/04/2014 / 7:21 am

    can’t wait to see the “new you”. Love the cartoon, later Dudette.


  10. Amy Pinkrose 03/04/2014 / 8:08 am

    OH, this is going to be fun. Can’t wait to see your new theme. I have no clue how to even take myself off line. I changed a theme while still online. Hhehehehehe Best of luck to you!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

    That cartoon is so true, I remember growing up, we had an old black and white cat and you could never get him off the back of the television set.

    Looking forward to the new look.


  13. bikerchick57 03/04/2014 / 8:41 am

    I love the comic, tis so true…:-)


  14. PiedType 03/04/2014 / 9:55 am

    As I lifelong owner of both cats and televisions, I’m cracking up over the cartoon.


  15. Jackie 03/04/2014 / 10:09 am

    Love that cartoon and boy is it true! I hope the library talk goes well. I look forward to seeing the new look. 🙂


  16. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:44 pm

    Me too ! 😀
    Turtle failure, Iris. 😦


  17. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:44 pm

    Isn’t it? 😀 Are you a cat person, Marc ?


  18. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:45 pm

    V. disappointing, as you will read, my dear Miss Pink …


  19. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:45 pm



  20. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:46 pm

    Niente di nuovo … Ahimè …


  21. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:46 pm

    It’s an old new look, unhappily …


  22. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:47 pm

    Ain’t it just ? – ‘specially for them what spoils their cats most horribly … 😉


  23. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:48 pm

    😀 So glad it got the response I hoped for. Obviously we have a lotta cat-lovers around. Fills me with hope for de woild.


  24. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:49 pm

    Second hand Rose… alas. 😦


  25. M-R 03/04/2014 / 2:51 pm

    It is proving most popular, to my gratification ! 🙂


  26. katarinawohlfart 04/04/2014 / 3:14 am

    No problem. I kept mine offline a day and survived! 🙂


  27. M-R 04/04/2014 / 4:20 am

    Yep – but it is so useful to those who read you, eh ? 🙂


  28. katarinawohlfart 04/04/2014 / 4:24 am

    Yepp. But I would only think that it was something wrong with my computer and be back next day, so no problem! 🙂


  29. M-R 04/04/2014 / 4:26 am

    Dunno whether to describe that as optimism or pessimism ! 😀


  30. M-R 04/04/2014 / 5:18 am

    Quelqu’un qui aime les chats !!!!!!


  31. marc bourbon 04/04/2014 / 5:20 am

    Ah oui mais j’aime aussi les dogs d’ailleurs sur ma page about je le prouve !


  32. M-R 04/04/2014 / 5:24 am

    Jenny … Alsatian ! – the most beautiful dogs in the world. What do you have now ,,,?


  33. marc bourbon 04/04/2014 / 6:57 am

    Jenny was the only animal which I had in my life and will be the only one she was too much perfected and I am afraid of being disappointed with an other one


  34. M-R 04/04/2014 / 7:05 am

    How strange. I would have thought you had more courage,Marc …


  35. katarinawohlfart 04/04/2014 / 7:24 am

    Neither do I. But it is due to my weird up an down internet connection and not your blog.


  36. marc bourbon 04/04/2014 / 7:30 am

    i have more courage for another things in the life


  37. M-R 04/04/2014 / 7:31 am

    You are A Noble Woman, my dear, to persevere through such difficulties …
    Meanwhile I persevere in working my way through the emails advising me of posts from blogs I follow. I am hoping to reach yours before long. 🙂


  38. katarinawohlfart 04/04/2014 / 7:33 am

    Yes it is a photostory which I created for our student Mag. So no much reading! 😉


  39. M-R 04/04/2014 / 7:35 am

    Few of them are as important as having and loving an animal and receiving its love in return. You’ve chosen to deprive yourself of that …
    Chacun son goût …


  40. M-R 04/04/2014 / 7:36 am

    Great!!! 😀


  41. marc bourbon 04/04/2014 / 7:55 am

    There is another reason in fact I cannot take care of an animal in apartment, when I had Jenny I had a house with a garden


  42. M-R 04/04/2014 / 8:07 am

    Ah. More reasonable. In fact, I compliment you: for I am very much against having dogs cooped up in apartments. Daily walks simply don’t replace their natural activity.
    I shall now, as the Americans say …
    BUTT OUT !


  43. swamiyesudas 05/04/2014 / 11:02 pm

    Just on the cartoon… The pOOr Catsie! JUST for the Cats, the Old monitors should be brought back!


  44. M-R 06/04/2014 / 6:49 am

    TRUE !!! 😀
