Bloggers Photo

My name is Caren; I was born an identical twin in a small rural town in Iowa; I live in the country; roosters wake me up. They are not my own roosters, but live behind me, and are eager to be helpful.  I am an artist, a cartoonist, a painter, a poet, a writer, and a game-player. When I was younger I knew all kinds of card games. When my children were small, I played many board games. They stopped playing with me when they realized if I was losing, I would diminish my age, turn younger than them, and throw the board.  I was once addicted to resale, and yard sale shopping. Every time I think I have broken myself of that habit, I have a relapse and drag home bags and boxes of other people's junk that I think I will someday use. More often than not, these found items end up recycled in other junk shops or recycle bins after I did not use them at all.  I'm an elementary school counselor, which means I teach children about respect, responsibility, and how to love each other and make friends. I love my life; I have been with the same man for 50 years, and our home is saturated with my paintings of booby women, because I love to draw and paint them and my husband loves me. I have three daughters, two sons-in-law, six granddaughters, and four grandsons, so my cup is full and happy.


Does Anyone Know how to FIX CATEGORIES?

Blog Posted:1/20/2020 10:21:00 AM

I am having a really difficult time with the CATEGORIES part of submitting a poem. When I click the boxes they do not REGISTER.  Is anyone else having this problem? I am having to try to submit each poem about six times to get the CATEGORIES box to WORK.  All suggestions and help are welcome. I have tried all three of my browsers. This does not seem to make a difference. Please give me a clue what I can do to get the CATEGORIES box that are checked to REGISTER.  Thank you!

Caren, tho I'm not having that problem, when my screen went b&w losing color, I cleared my browser cache and rebooted and it worked--that is, if you haven't tried it yet?

I didn't have an issue Caren when I posted tonight. Maybe there was a glitch in the system as I saw team soup logged in earlier.

Thank you Constance. I have sent them a little email about it. I thought maybe someone else might have a "trick".

Will it stick to the subject? Oh, & ironically you're not supposed to use duct tape on ducts anymore (true)

The mind boggles; it is quite apparent all three of you are well acquainted with duct tape. Sounds like loads of fun...;)

It is exasperating though Eve. I wonder if some time of day is easier than another?

A slow internet connection might be to blame. Or PS is working on the system ... You might drop them a line ...
