“There are few things as charming and attractive as country life, especially when we are tired, stressed, and overwhelmed by the noise and pollution of the city. Country life is the only available type of paradise for people who seek peace, calm, beauty, and harmony.” ~ Unknown
This is my second offering for GC and my photo challenge Peaceful over at Weekly Prompts. I’ve also linked to three other sites (detailed at the base).
Standing on the roof terrace surveying all that is below, I am once more reminded that something is not quite right, something is missing from this green and pleasant land, and if it’s possible to be too peaceful, then this is it.
At the end of March, Richard, the farmer who rents my land called in to pay his rent. “I’ll fetch you some lambs up in a couple of weeks!” – Richard, I’m still waiting!
I love this time of year as I eagerly await the arrival of the lambs. Often we have a few cows with their young calves, and they too bring a lot of pleasure, not least because cows are such curious creatures, frequently hanging over the garden wall, almost as though they’ve popped over for a chin-wag.
Recently, I took the bull by the horns and confronted WordPress about the failure of some our pingbacks, and not being one to let a situation slide, I badgered the company, with questions, and I cheekily offered ideas and advice.
I’m sure I must have been a very annoying thorn in the side to those poor Happiness Engineers, and they must have been extremely fed up of hearing from this know-it-all English woman who refused to give up and insisted on finishing what she started!
On Friday, a few hours after pinpointing and sending the developers a timeline, and asking what had taken place between those dates, a Happiness Engineer named James contacted me to say a developer had found the fault, and would I do some testing for them.
James was so nice to me, and I began to feel guilty for bombarding him and his colleagues with all those questions. The fault, by the way, was due to an update in the WordPress infrastructure!
Later on, I received a message from an engineer named Kyle, he informed me that he and James would work together and between them would attempt to find the cause of my iPad problems. Wow, I do feel honoured!
One problem I have is with a floating page, I can move the page around in all directions, almost as though it’s unstable. Yesterday, I realised that I only have that fault when I attempt to preview an edited post on Weekly Prompts, but it’s fine on Nan’s Farm. Why didn’t I notice that the fault was limited to Weekly Prompts? What a plonker!
So, it’s looking likely that GC and I may have to change the theme on our Weekly Prompts site.
A couple of other iPad/WordPress errors still exist, but I’m sure they will be resolved, I have every confidence in my new best friends James and Kyle!
