There are days when simple technology seems to boggle my mind. I have attempted to show the blogs I follow on my blog, but only part of them appear. Do any of you know what I might be doing wrong? I have more than 20 additional blogs that I enjoy following and would like to have listed so I can get a quick peek each day but they are not cooperating.

Also, some of you have an old email address for me. If you are emailing me and have not received an answer or seen your comment posted, please send it again. My email is updated on my blog now so things should work better.

This morning it was above 100 degrees when we headed out for our 45 minute walk...I survived, but hope the mornings cool down a bit soon. It's supposed to reach 112 this weekend. The resulting lightening and thunder storms that arrive in the evening are really a spectacular experience. They remind me of growing up in Iowa.

The cactus love the heat. Here are a couple I thought you might like to see. They are blooming. The desert does have it's beautiful side.


  1. Thank you for the extremely kind comment you've left on one of my last posts. I'm both glad and honored to have you as a follower.

    The cactus fruit is my favourite fruit: sweet inside, and thorny outside - and I love your pictures of it.

    As for the Blog List. I think you just have to go over the procedure again: Layout, Add Gadget, Blog List, Sort, Show, Add, Save, and see if you've missed something.

    (Me ,I haven't put yet a blog list on my sidebar. I'm using Blogger updates).

  2. Duta,

    Thanks for your words of encouragement. I'm still having trouble, but it may be due to me using MacBook instead of PC to do my blog. Some things simply don't interface.

    We love cactus, too. In fact, we are going to gather Prickly Pear fruit today. We make Prickly Pear syrup to use on pancakes, crepes, french toast, etc. and to make wonderful salad dressings. Glad to know someone else loves the fruits.
