A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
I spent yesterday at my folks house, going through stuff. My nephew, who lives there, has been trying to re-claim the garage and had filled most of a roll-off container. The backyard was filled with stuff for me to go through, take what I wanted, and put the rest in the bin. It was hot, and both physically and mentally exhausting. I loaded up my vehicle and still have more to go through. Teh Older will help me with some of it after church today.

Anyone need a high quality reel-to-reel recorder? Neither do I.

Good morning and happy Sunday!

I know it’s rough work, Paddy. Good luck getting through it and continuing good thoughts and prayers for Mac’s recovery.

Thanks for your opinion, Fatwa. It’s probably the wisest course, just not sure I’ll go that way.

G’morning from Happy Larryville, GN!

It was hot, and both physically and mentally exhausting.

Paddy --

Based upon experience, emotionally rough, too.

I probably schlepped more stuff down here from Mom’s than I really needed to last year due to constantly thinking “once it’s gone, it’s gone“. But I had a rental truck and figured it’d be better to go through some of the stuff here with a clearer head…and then decide to get rid of it. 😉

Plus, I thought there were some things the kids might appreciate for various reasons. And if not, they can dispose of ’em; muwahahahaha! (I probably should unpack and go through those things one of these days…)

Sven --

You’re most welcome; as the old saying goes, “free advice is often worth precisely what you paid for it”.

While playing around with my tablet, I found that when I tap the text box at this site on that device, the virtual keyboard pops-up and then immediately retracts. Which, alas, makes commenting here from the tablet unfeasible. 😉

As best I can ascertain, this is a coding problem with the site, rather than an issue with the tablet. But there’s always the chance I could be wrong about that… This has occurred with the browser it came with (which does not appear to be Chrome) as well as Firefox.

Not carping, just mentioning it; I’ll see if I can learn anything further besides the above “I dunno”.

FWIW, it’s a 2013 Note 10.1 (GT-N8013) running Android 4.1.2. If anyone has any hints or requires more info, you can post that here or email me at the addy I used to register.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Sunday thread.

Update: Just installed Chrome on teh tablet; same problem.

Fatwa -- there is a WordPress for Android app that should let you more easily read and comment on WordPress blogs.

Thanks Paddy; I’ll check it out.
