Rain Whisky and Photographs.

Good afternoon, after a dreadful morning of very heavy rain it did brighten up this afternoon with a bit of sunshine, and not too cold. Last night I was trying to sort through my photographs in Picasa and I deleted the whole lot by mistake well you can imagine the panic.  I tried system restore but that did not work. Later after I had resigned myself that I would have to start again I discovered that could download them from my hard drive back onto Picasa.  I have not done them all yet it is a slow process but I will get there in the end.
I was reading the the paper today that the Isle of Skye had 3 inches of rain yesterday.  When we were there last month the lady that owned the house we rented told us they had had a very dry summer and when we visited the Talisker Whisky distillery the guide told us they had to close down in May due to lack of water in the spring they use to make the whisky well I don't think they will have anymore bother this year after yesterdays rainfall.
I was messing about yesterday on Blogger Buzz and went into a section called blogger in draft it gives you a slightly different box to write your entry but the way you put pictures in is much easier you select them into a box then you can choose the order you put them in your blog hope this makes sense I certainly thought it was better than working backwards as I had been doing.
Will go not and see whats for dinner. Till next time.

I do not use those albums, I always upload all mine into photobucket. I hope I can find that place where pictures are easier and you can actually put them where you want them. Have a nice weekend.

Well I found something called draft and it was a very small box but I could not find anything about adding pictures. Perhaps I am looking in the wrong place. Can you tell me where you found it please?

Blogger buzz is so full of different things. I'm glad you can retrieve those picutes. I did try and set my comments up like this. It worked and was very neat but I don't like not having the pictures. I have a few people that read mine with the same names and have no idea who is who without the picture to look at. Ugh, I feel so old. xx

What a horrible feeling that must have been to have lost all your pictures. Glad you were able to get them back!

Hi Joan, I just had to read this entry because the word `whisky` jumoped right out at me...lol! Now that sounds interesting. I must have a look at Blogger Buzz and see how to do that, if I can`t I`ll be back for help. :o)

Love Sandra xxxx

I did the same thing with Picasa only to learn that the pictures were still on computer. THANK GOODNESS! Enjoy your Sunday.
