Hey Y'all

Did ya know it's Domestic Violence month?  One of my favorites because I can get away with says so!

Therefore, I started cleaning out Miss T's room...whatta mess.   Violence to ME I guess LOL.

The other Violent thing going on in my house is this possessed computer.  It will NOT log into my separate AOL Icon...I'm having to do this through Firefox (which is a pain!) ... oh yeah, I've reset, restarted, rebooted and it REFUSED to cooperate.

More violence was that today I made Miss T go to the airport (didn't tell her we were going)....I wanted her to ride in a real live airplane just to see that it's OK.  My SIL's Dad has a lil plane and he was out there anyway and said we could go.

Once she figured it out she was ADAMANT about not getting in that plane.  She got in.....buckled up....unbuckled and got out.
Nephew, his mom and her dad took off for about a 10 minute ride and came back.  All the while I'm showing Miss T how well the plane is balanced and smooth and not sputtering you think she bought it?  Well,  yeah a little.

They got back and she got back in!!  They taxi'd a bit and then they were done....they couldn't take off this time because they were having radio burps....he said once he got them fixed we were welcome to come try it again.

Miss T was so proud of herself!  Kept repeating "I got in a plane" over and over.

Blog ID

AOL suggested we NOT name our new blog with the same name as we have it here....but I did.  Upon learning this I added "II" behind mine.

Some have asked about it  "Can't find you...."

Here I am.......Coastal Comfort II


Love you ALL!!

from Magic Smoke

Please refer to Magic Smoke ...... they trying to help.

Here's a copy from them:

In case you haven't been reading my comments..

Some of my responses to users comments

To Paul, yes a copy of your journal will be made on Blogger. Your journal will still be available till Nov 1st. Also, the migration will be opened up to Journals users starting on or after Oct. 7th. We will be using this week to iron out any kinks in the process.

To Sherri - I would not worry about the migration too much. It should be fairly straightforward. Blogger will also have a helpdesk that you can send email to, if you have any issues and a live real person will respond and help out. So, all efforts have been made to minimize the pain.

To Yasmin (cayasm) and everybody else - Your journals will be copied over in its ENTIRETY (entries, comments, about me). So, anything else you hear is not true.

And no, your email account is not affected by this at all as some have been suggesting.

I understand that people are upset and that is okay. However, I request you to be patient and understanding as we work thru this process.


Trying out Blogger

I know a lot of you are trying out Blogger by creating blogs. So, when you create a test blog over there, call it something other than the name you want to use for your journal.

The reason I say that is because during the migration (read:copy) process, it will ask you for a blog name on Blogger into which to copy your journal. At which point you might not get the name that you wanted, because you have used it up on the test blog.

Of course, like everything in life there is a way around this, but I do not want to complicate your life any more than it is now. If you are savvy with Blogger then feel free to go and grab a name of your choice. I will show you a way to use that name to migrate your journal later.

The best thing you can do ahead of the actual migration is to create a gmail or blogger account.

p.s I created a blog on Blogger called as a placeholder for magic smoke(sadly i could not get

Shelly had a good point........what if AOL can't merge our journals because that name's already taken????

So I just added II behind mine!  Cross your fingers .....

Blogspot Screen Shots

I am only "clicking on crap" as an instructor once told me, so that I can feel my way around our new home.  You can't hurt anything unless you hit SAVE by accident.  I'm running into boxes and tripping, but I am learning a few things along the way.  Here's somethings I hope will help....yes the RED marks are the blood from my boo boo's of moving ROFL!

Homepage.....has NEW POST and CUSTOMIZE

Settings / Comments

Comments......enter YOUR email addy where you want your comments sent to.

You can chose your background;  In here you can MOVE those boxes around too.

DASHBOARD....nice place to see your blog in its condensed version.  You can EDIT here; it lists your FOLLOWED blogs and their recent updates too.  I'm told we'd have to subscribe to FEEDBLITZ to get any kind of entry alerts.....the jury is still out on that one.
