Respecting Each Other's Opinions

 November 20, 2019

Good morning.  I've already typed most of this post twice, and both times it just disappeared.  Poof!  Gone!  If this keeps up, I won't be using this laptop anymore for typing my blog posts.  I just don't have the patience for this nonsense. 

I don't know why it is happening and I don't know if I'm hitting a magic Poof key when I'm typing.  I've checked the keyboard and I can't figure any of this out.  Windows 7 was such a good program and it was not broken, so why did it have to be replaced? 

The same goes for Photoshop.  My last version of the program was working fine, then all of a sudden the whole program was re-vamped and changed so much that most of it does not even resemble the older version.  Sighhhhh!

I want to address a "commenting" problem that a friend of mine has encountered recently, and now she has decided not to leave comments anymore.  She left a comment on someone's blog in answer to a comment that someone else had left.  The other person came back with a verbal attack that really was not called for.  This other person had views that she felt needed to be shoved down other people's throats as the only acceptable views. 

This is entirely not called for.  So, please don't do it here.  If anyone feels it is necessary to attack another commenter on my blog, then I shall block them from commenting permanently.  (So far, no one has done this here on my blog, and I appreciate that.)  It is okay to disagree with other folks opinions.  It is not okay to verbally attack other folks because their opinions are different from ours. 

On a lighter note, did anyone notice how bright the moon was all last week?  Deanne sent me a photo that she had taken one night.  The moon was so bright that it lit up the whole street.

Then, Saturday night when we got home from the Cabaret, I noticed the big bright moon over my house so I took a photo (using my phone).  It lit up my whole yard.

Today I'm going to do a bit more wrapping.  It feels good to be ahead of myself for a change.  I also need to make a grocery order for pick up either tomorrow or the next day.  And, I have to decide what I'm going to do about Thanksgiving dinner.  Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is next week.  Wow, we are getting awfully close to the end of this year.  Time is flying by so quickly.

Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading before getting started on my wrapping.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I so agree with you about leaving comments. I have left some on facebook that were totally innocent and just my opinion and had horrible things said to me. Everyone is allowed to disagree, but if rudeness ever happens on my blog, then that person is gone.

I did not see the moon, but my friend yesterday was telling me about it. It was so bright she thought someone was shining a light into her bedroom window.

Hope you have a great day.

I think I may know the situation you're referring to. I usually allow commenters to say what they want to say, and I don't block anyone. (Except spam.) But I also hope people will stay civil!
