Reviwers Comments!

 Lightning at Sunset


Mozilla keeps updating and changing things for our Firefox! Up until yesterday I answered every review on the site but as of yesterday I can no longer thank you for your wonderful review comments. Apparently they were having some kind of problem with them! But I want you all to know I DO READ THEM, even if I can't comment on them. I will post some more this week but did want to let you know what is going on.

~~~Recomending a Firefox Extension!~~~

Painted Spring Birds

Hope your New Years celebration or sleeping in for the new year was fantastic! 

I just found an extension that is very helpful for anyone that is on the computer very much. It is Dark Night Mode and you can find it at: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dark-night-mode/

I used to use a page darkening extension but it is no longer available since the big changes when Firefox updated to 57. But I found this one and it is almost perfect. You can white list a page because it might not work well on that site. I haven't found any problems with it so far. And I have been using it for almost a week now. 

I am loving the Alexa Echo we received for Christmas. I actually moved it to the kitchen because that is where I would use it more. One thing that took me a bit to figure out was the microwave does not play well with it Alexa. Took me awhile to figure that one out. It is funny because I thought it would be so dumb to have something in your house that listens all the time! 

I have started doing my pre-surgery exercises. When I was given the notebook by the surgeon I thought they would be a snap because I exercise all the time. BUT they are hard because my knee hasn't been straight since my first knee surgery after a motocross accident when I tore the cartilage over 40 years ago! Trying to force it to straighten is painful and exhausting. But I am working hard on it.

Going to get back to work!

FIXED IT!

Difference in Time

Well, I feel like a total dummy! I have been trying to figure out why my blog wasn't showing any of the images. So I have spent hours on blogger help trying to fix it. So I checked my blog on my cell phone and the images were there, then I checked it using edge and the images showed...so I figured it was something on Firefox. I noticed there were 27 ads blocked on my adblocker extension so I updated it...and "WaLa" my images were there. Sometimes I can be so dumb! 

I also noticed this morning that the Newest Theme page on Firefox had an internal error also. Some of that is up now but not all. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We had a fun, easy family Christmas. We just had our kids here so it was an adult Christmas. No fancy food and just fun and laughter. Everyone brought snacks and we had let Papa Murphy prepare our dinner! We sat around the dining room table playing Uno for hours. 

Got to see some of the grand-kids and great grand-kids, too. I wish I was up to a huge Christmas like I used to have but now that the families have extended you have to share with other families. 

We were given an Alexa Echo for Chrsitmas! I had always said I didn't want one of those in the house to listen to everything you say...But as usual...I changed my mind after I got it set up. I may get one for the kitchen even! Our house is pretty big so it is hard to hear it in some rooms.

Well, my knee replacement surgery is scheduled for the middle of March. I really liked the Dr. that will be doing it. I am dreading it a lot but also looking forward to not limping and not having pain. I know it is going to be very painful for awhile but I am feeling very positive and know that will help. The part I am dreading (beside more pain) is not being able to do something when I want. That has already been impeded some but not all. It takes me longer to get from room to room and shopping is a "bitch". Sorry about that but I couldn't think of another word that worked as well! 

We went to a Nativity dance recital our great grand-daughter danced in and it was so special. I loved seeing the kids of all ages dancing to the story of the nativity.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

Christmas Carolers

Wow, the holiday is coming up fast, isn't it? I have still been making Christmas themes are realize it is time to STOP! So I am. 

If you remember me posting I was going to try to just use pain management on my osteoarthritic knee> Well, I changed my mind! I don't want to limp around the rest of my life, so I made an appt. with one of the best knee replacement surgeons in our area. He is booked till March so they are setting up an appt. for the surgery. They gave me a 3 ring notebook to read and I can't believe all the info and work I have to do before the surgery. I know it is going to be a long, painful recovery but if it is successful it will all be worth it!

Things on Firefox have been changing quickly it seems. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Personas Plus was supposed to be gone in November, but you can still use it. That is what I use to test my themes while I am making them. Sometimes I have to test a theme 7 or 8 times before I get it so it satisfies me in the placement on the header. Of course everyone has a different amount of toolbars so that makes it a little touchy. A lot of people are using Firefox Color so if you just want a plain theme with colors that works great but adding custom backgrounds is a problem...

We have been busy with the great grand-kids stuff. Went to the Church Christmas program on Sunday morning and enjoyed it. Monday night we went to a great grandsons's school program. It was cute but the school never has enough chairs set up for the size of the audience. Sunday night our only great granddaughter is in a dance recital for Christmas. Am anxious to see her dance but worry about walking to the theater and sitting for 3 hours! We are going with our son and his wife and they will let me off at the theater and then hunt for a parking spot! 

I got a notice on my laptop this morning saying my Firefox was running slow...panic time...as I knew it was. But I had done a refresh once before and had to completely reset everything, so I wasn't pleased. I have some settings on mine that I have to put in manually, like not closing FF if I close the last tab, etc. So I used my MozBack up. They say it isn't up to date and they are not going to be updating it, but it still works. I used it on my desktop and then put the USB into the laptop and it still works! So I didn't have to re-set anything, lose my extensions or themes! So if you download it now it should still work. 

The wind has been really bad this week. Even one tornado in our state and that is rare. I just got a text from my daughter and it blew her fence over. She lives in an area of town that is high up and has lots and lots of trees. She has had her neighbors trees fall on to her house once and her deck once. Then Friday night her power went out 3 times and blew her washing machine up! So she gets freaked out every time we have a wind warning.

I want to thank all of you that have been following me and using my themes and wallpapers. I appreciate all the wonderful reviews you leave and try to respond to each one.

Gonna sign off for now and wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR...or whatever you celebrate.

Last month of 2018

Santa's Minions

Well, December is here and everyone is working on getting ready for Christmas. We don't buy gifts for anyone anymore. Everybody has more "stuff" than what they need already. I would have to purchase everything on line because my knee has gotten so much worse I can't do much shopping. I was so hoping my knee would hold out on me for another year or so but it has gotten so much worse so fast, I doubt if I can. The Dr. has put in a request for an orthopedic surgeon and I am hoping I can get the one I want but I have heard rumors he has retired so will find out soon, I guess.

A cold, clear sunshiny day in the Pacific Northwest today and should be this way most of the week. Just beautiful. 

I have been very busy working on themes and trying to get the hang of testing them with Firefox Color. You can only add so many custom backgrounds before it locks you out so I have had to figured out a work around but it isn't very convenient. 

Thanksgiving at our house was really nice. Our daughter doesn't join us anymore as she goes out of town to visit her son and daughter for Thanksgiving. We missed her but they will all be here for Christmas day. 

I hope everyone is happy and well and looking forward to the holidays.

November Already!

Fall Not  Finished

Are you ready to turn back your clocks this week end? I do it on Saturday and we end up saying to each other "Is that the right time?" I wish we would just stick to one time. I don't care which but just one so we don't have to do it twice a year.

Well, I had a very strange experience this past Saturday. I felt absolutely fine when we left to do our shopping. We were in Walmart and I said to my husband we should pick up some beer so we had just turned onto the liquor aisle and our oldest son and his wife came up behind us. They had been ready to check out and spotted us so came over to visit. We were standing there talking and I started to feel kind of dizzy/funny or whatever and I went to reach for the cart handle to steady myself and woke up on the floor! Passing out in the liquor aisle at Walmart is not something you want to brag about. My husband and son could tell I was going to pass out and actually grabbed me and slowly let me onto the floor so at least I didn't hit my head. My daughter in law was talking to 911 and no one would let me get up. I felt like I was going to get sick to my stomach but nothing happened. So I ended up at the ER again and spent the day there. All kinds of tests again and the same diagnosis as it was in May when I passed out in the kitchen. I didn't believe their diagnosis in May but now I do. I was dehydrated! I just was not drinking near enough water during the day. So I am drinking a lot! And eating better. I have always eaten healthy but not a lot. I have to get something to get more electrolytes also and I don't like Gatorade so will have to find something. And I have felt fine since then. 

Are you liking the new way for themes? I am getting used to it now and don't mind it. 

I will be so glad when the election is over. Our house phone rings constantly. We don't answer it unless we recognize the number but the ringing drives you nuts.

I wanted to update my blog for November so will be back soon.

Thanks to all of you that review my themes. I appreciate each and every star.
