Gone haywire. The print has gone large and is filling the screen. All semblance of a post as usual has vanished. As you know, I hate change and never understand what has happened, but I will press on until my son can come and hopefully sort things out for me. Yesterday was a hot, humid and at times wet, day here, with thunder in the distance. The farmer is gradually returning to 'normal' after his series of tests and is now waiting to see the specialist. Today he feels well enough to walk round the lead mines in Swaledale with his walking group and as there is a slight breeze it should be pleasant. Friend W and I are going out for a sandwich lunch somewhere and then this evening a group of us (9) are off to the Chinese for a meal. Where would we be without friends eh in these dismal, dark days when the news from all quarters is of wars and rumours of wars? I prefer to bury my head in the sand and not listen to the News bulletins if I can help it - after all, we only get one view and it always appals me how the news cameras are there for the drama and move on after a couple of days as though the whole thing has gone away - it seems it is no longer news-worthy. Yesterday W and I went to a village called Preston under Scar, where there are a lot of artistic folk living, and once a year they have a week-end Art Exhibition in their Village Hall. It is always a pleasant occasion and coffee and biscuits with friends is good too, isn't it? Back to normal (whatever that is) soon I hope. Enjoy your Sunday. My son has corrected it for me and shown me how to do it if it occurs again. Thanks for all those helpful comments. I am pretty sure that I hit the wrong button during posting yesterday. Anyhow, all's well that ends well. Nice Wensleydale cheese, walnut, apple and mayo sandwich for lunch, sitting looking out over a lovely view of Wensleydale. What's not to like.

Well, whatever, it looks alright.

I listen to the News, not watch it, less emotive bulletins on radio 4 than tv.

Enjoy your busy day.

Yes. I think it is a good idea to pretend that nothing is going on.

Sorry you are still having problems but at least you managed this post.
I try to follow current affairs but, as you say, it is all doom and gloom and there is nothing I can do about any of it.
Glad the farmer feels well enough to go walking with his friends, and that you have had a lovely time out with yours.
Don't throw the new laptop out of the window just yet!

As you have been writing blog posts for quite some time i'm pretty sure you know you can change the font and font size/color etc....So this must be a new problem you've never seen before.

I don't know if this will work but since it seems to show up on your blog okay maybe its just YOUR view of it... You could try holding down the Ctrl button and hitting the Minus key at the same time... It should be up there near your backspace button. This should make your view of the screen smaller OR larger if you hit the + button..See if that won't work. Remember hold the Ctrl button down at the same time........ Hugs! deb

I've never heard of / thought of putting apple on a sandwich. But, of course, why not? Apple and bacon with mayo sounds good to me as I can't have dairy.
Hope your day is going splendidly

Glad to learn that order has been restored.

You've inspired me to think of sandwiches in a new way with your lunch plans.

Best wishes.
