I found my old theme.   I knew the name but couldn’t find it going through the one side of WordPress and Nan told me she couldn’t find it either.  Today I went through the old admin dashboard and typed silver in the search box and it popped right up.  I have set the font size larger as I couldn’t read the small print.   If anyone has display problems or can not read the print /  see the pictures please let me know.  I want everyone to be able to enjoy the blog.  Hugs

Tonight’s supper I am making

Filed under: Family, Love, My Life and Rants, News — Scottie @ 19:16

So in between trying to get my blog correct again due to my own stupidity, I have been doing home chores.  Tonight I volunteered to make supper as Ron has been all day putting up new vinyl siding on the outside of the kitchen wall that he had to rebuild.  I mentioned it in an earlier post that when he moved the kitchen door he found the wall was destroyed so he had to put in a new outer kitchen wall.  So today we got all the stuff and he has been out there working his cute butt off.  

So I took a dozen pork chops and seasoned them with rubbing minced garlic on them , lemon pepper, mesquite, garlic pepper, and steak seasoning.  I would have used all season but I can not find it in all the moving things here.

Then I put them in the oven at a low temp, 275 for a hour s Ron still wanted to do a bunch of stuff outside.  That baked the flavors in.   Then I got the stuffing read, the cut green beans, a dark brown gravy.   After the meat had gone an hour I asked Ron if he was ready to stop, he said in a bit, so I check the chops.  They were half done and already seasoned.  So I took them to 400 and put them in for about 25 minutes.  Everything should be ready at the same time.  Got to go cook.   Loves and hugs


I figured out the problem and it was me.

Filed under: My Life and Rants, News — Scottie @ 15:51

Special thanks to Nan and Jeff who tried to help me out.  I went through everything hard before trying the simple things.  I changed settings and read help blogs.  I queried WordPress and forums.  I even changed my theme and now can not get the old one back.  Then as I was doing the dishes it hit me.  Different browsers show pages differently sometimes.   Sure enough when I opened my blog page with a different browser there was all the buttons I had been missing.  So I went back to doing dishes and thinking.  “What was the difference between the two browsers”? I asked myself.  Well the second one I don’t use and did not add all my personal settings and apps.  I have gotten lazy and stopped keep several browsers all up to date my personal wishes as I only use one now.  Well what app could I have on the one I use that would cause it to stop showing me the buttons I need.   Then it hit me.  I have a strict ad blocker.  I recently reset to not even allow social media apps and links because of privacy concerns.  What I did not connect was when I did that it blocked the buttons I needed.  I thought it was WordPress but in truth it was the ad blocker I installed and tightened up.   I then allowed the social media buttons again and everything came back.   Now I have a problem.  My old theme displayed well for everyone.  I like a wide full writing area with a right sidebar for displaying all the miscellaneous stuff.   However both Nan and Miles tell me it doesn’t display correctly.  If that is the case it is no good to me and I will look for another.  The old one I had I can not find in the theme store, and I can use either free or Premium as I pay for the upgraded themes.  I find selecting a theme to be a pain in the butt.   So thanks again to everyone who helped me out, sorry I am an idiot sometimes.  If you have a theme suggestion , let me know.  Hugs

Changed theme.

Well what do you guys think , is it easy to read?  Is it big enough?  Do you have the like and share buttons again?   Hugs

Evangelicals Plot $20 Million Spend For Midterms. Scary what happened to separation of church and state?

Filed under: Harm, News, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 11:58

An influential conservative Evangelical group is ramping up its spending on efforts to defend Republican majorities in the November midterms. The Faith and Freedom Coalition, which invested heavily during the 2016 elections, plans to spend nearly $20 million on a voter turnout effort to protect GOP majorities in the fall.

Elections matter and make a big difference. Bigotry is alive and well in the christian community in Tennessee.

Some of the information at the link.

Remember Jeff Amyx, the Tennessee hardware store owner who put up a sign saying “No Gays Allowed” in his window back in 2015?

He just put the sign back up again after the SCOTUS ruling in favor of the Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding:

He told WBIR that he was celebrating a “win” after the Supreme Court narrowly ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple…

“Christianity is under attack. This is a great win, don’t get me wrong, but this is not the end, this is just the beginning,” he said. “Right now we’re seeing a ray of sunshine. This is ‘happy days’ for Christians all over America, but dark days will come.”

The embarrassment of the US

Evangelist: God Says Christians Are “Supposed to be Ruling in This World”

Filed under: Atheism, Bigotry, Harm, News, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 10:15

It’s not enough for some conservative Christians to have all the political power that they do. Some of them won’t rest until they have all of it, religious minorities be damned.

Conservatives Andrew Wommack and Lance Wallnau were recently joined on a webcast by Christian pseudo-historian David Barton to talk about the upcoming midterm elections. Barton made the argument that God wants Christians like them to control everything. Wommack agreed, saying very bluntly, “we are supposed to be ruling in this world.”

When Muslims say things like that, conservatives sound the alarms over Sharia Law taking over our nation. When Barton and Wommack say it, it elicits little more than a shrug. Sure they have plenty of power, but they won’t rest until the entire country is run under their very specific interpretation of a very vague holy book.

They demand a theocracy of their beliefs only.   They want the right to discriminate / get rid of those who do not support their views.   Please read the page at the link below.  Hugs
