    Up near the title of a post, right beside the date, there used to be a counter that said how many comments there were. That’s disappeared? I used to like that feature. I can live without it, of course. But I found it an easy way to tell if there were new posts to read. Minor issue, truly.

      OK, never mind me. I think I had navigated to the site via facebook. When I came through my regular browser, the comment counter is still there. Computing: still an endless source of confusion and fascination after all these years …..

        The counter is on the main page; when you click to the individual post’s page it’s not there. If you came from facebook it must have been a link directly to the post page and not the home page.

    I don’t like coffee. I’ll take the kitty, though.

    • ^oo^ March 28, 2016 / 11:01 pm

      Just wonderin’. Is that a coffee mustache on the kitty?

        😀 😀 😀 I wondered the same thing..

        Could be! I have a pic of my Stars with her whole face shoved in my mom’s coffee cup (it was empty but for the last few drops). I think I posted it here a couple weeks ago.

    I like the mug.

    And hey, spreadsheets can be fun. 😛

    • Jan March 28, 2016 / 9:48 pm

      LOL! Thanks for that!

        I now have a spreadsheet picture of my Pablo. 😉

        I think his book will be my next read.

      This is Awesome! Thank you!

      I watched the whole thing. Nerdification at its best!! Loved it.

      • allein March 29, 2016 / 8:26 am

        I bought his book Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension: A Mathematician’s Journey Through Narcissistic Numbers, Optimal Dating Algorithms, at Least Two Kinds of Infinity, and More as a Christmas present to myself. Haven’t read it yet; it might be next after I finish the one I’m reading now.

        And now I need to see if I can find more of his stand-up comedy.

      Well, I just had to look up my birthday and it’s National French Fry Day and National Beans ‘N’ Franks Day. LOL!

      • debg March 29, 2016 / 9:56 am

        National Cream Filled Donut Day and National Eat a Hoagie Day for me. As a vegetarian, I’ll be embracing the former.

      • birdlady26 March 30, 2016 / 9:21 am

        Gigi! We share the same b’dy!

      I think mines the best, it’s also the Marine Corps’ birthday (maybe that’s why I always had a fascination with men in uniforms, hmmm). Plus Forget-Me-Not and Vanilla Cupcake day. So I guess I’ll celebrate this year with a vanilla cupcake with red/white/blue frosting while remembering the Marines.

      • allein March 29, 2016 / 1:28 pm

        Sounds good to me!

      • birdcage March 29, 2016 / 1:29 pm

        I’m National Macadamia Nut Day. If only I’d been born a day earlier on National Welsh Rarebit Day! That would have been a yummy tradition.

  5. Patty March 29, 2016 / 12:30 am

    My birthday is national roast suckling pig day and Answer the phone like Buddy the elf day.

    • Faye March 29, 2016 / 8:26 am

      My birthday is National Clean Off Your Desk Day, National Step In A Puddle And Splash Your Friends Day and National Milk Day.

      I’m lactose intolerant and my desk is pretty clean so I’ll just have to put on my rain boots and find a puddle next year. Lol!!

    I’m guessing I love bed sheets would be more accurate.

    • allein March 29, 2016 / 6:54 am


    • Faye March 29, 2016 / 8:28 am

      Yes, my bed belongs to the cat. And my printer, my folded clean clothes, etc.

    You know of course that Handsome Bailey is lying through his feline teeth – NOBODY can possibly love spreadsheets!! Unless he’s referring to the comfy sheets spread on his hoomin’s bed… my kitty loves my sheets so much that she makes sure they are well coated with her best belly floof, for my comfort I guess. 😀

    • allein March 29, 2016 / 7:02 am

      I’m afraid I must disagree on the spreadsheets. See the Matt Parker video I posted above. 😉
