“I don`t regret anything I’ve ever done.
I only wish I could have done more.”

- Puck / A Midsummer NIghts Dream
William Shakespeare

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber’d here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend:
if you pardon, we will mend:
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to ‘scape the serpent’s tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.

Default Frame Problem fixed …

People …

De fault wuz all my own.

The Default Frame problem is fixed – thanks to Fabiana at WordPress.

Thank you also to the Doug and CIndy for responding.

I was very frustrated with this issue and my attempts to fix went on for a LONG time - and really got to me. I was beginning to think WordPress was run by bots or a computer.

Anyway …. now I can do something.

Default Frames … help please.

Default Frames

WordPress is nagging me to renew my subscription.  I want to … but I have a problem with them - They won’t tell me how to remove Default Frames – though I’ve asked them several times.

Default Frames on my images has been a problem ever since I started my blog. Up till now I’ve been removing them manually – which is a pain, but it works. However, recently WordPress made another one of it’s unannounced ‘improvements” to the Toolbar – and I am completely unable to remove them at all.

Unless I place a caption under every image. Which I do not want to have to do. Would you?

I’ve gone on YouTube and tried to follow advice on editing CSS, but I can’t figure it out. Hell I don’t even know how to get in there? I have very little technical ability with this stuff – though it’s elementary to most everyone else.

Below … example of how Default Frames can ruin a blog image

Below: the only way i know how to remove a Default Frame – by adding a caption.

I’ve surely had some privileges in my life. One of those was that my folks were great lovers of Movie Musicals. So I grew up listening to many on our stereo (another privilege) like The King and I, My Fair Lady, Camelot, The Sound of Music … and on and on.

Among those was Oklahoma – and us kids on the farm at Brooks knew all the words and songs.

Anyhow, I came upon this clip on YouTube … thot I’d put it up.

 

Times have surely changed … yet I still love it.

Waltzing Matilda – history of a song

Very nice job Mate! Thanks for coming around.

Waltzing Matilda , first lyrics were written 1895 in Australia, the title is not related to a dance and not related to a woman. Matilda was the name for a bag on the back of wandering shepherds. The lyrics are related to a sheep-shearer, who was a protester vs bad working conditions. During the protest a barn was burned, some sheep were killed. The protester Samuel Hoffmeister was accused, but he said he was not guilty and made suicide beneath his favorite water hole – where he usually ate some stolen sheep.

Maybe you have an interest to read more at wikipedia. The song became a kind of second national anthem in Australia, was used for the opening of Olympic games 1976, was the soundtrack for a female soccer team (the Matildas) or was used supporting the out-sending of Australian troops vs Iraq etc. In Australia the whole…
