It’s all excitement around here

Author: Helen

The other day, I was pegging out some washing and saw Ollie scratching himself on a piece of trellis which is holding up a jasmine vine. I didn’t take much notice, and then someone said, “oooh, look at Ollie. I think he’s been stung by a bee.”

He had turned into a Shar-Pei.

That’s to show how much I scoff at convention.

Ollie has been going to the Rose Street Market with SO and Boychild to help sell Mr Bucket.

Friday Tuesday Dog Blogging: The Cute Onslaught begins

Author: Helen

This was supposed to be Friday Dog blog, but what the hell!
I fixed my image display problem, and I’m having a rush of blood to the head on accounta my own extreme cleverness.


This is Ollie.

More Ollie than you can stand, under the fold!

Anyone but WordPress users can probably look away – besides the fact that this won’t really grab your interest and for that I apologise.

Lately some .jpg images have been refusing to display after I’ve uploaded them and cut and pasted the HTML into the edit window in the usual way.

Instead of the usual square icon you’d get for “image not displaying”, though, the alt. text displays when the post is saved.

Is the HTML wrong? No. I’ve grabbed HTML from the posts where the image is displayed and compared them carefully. There’s no difference in the syntax. None. Funny thing is, too, that those images still display in the new post.

Has the image failed to upload? No. If I try to upload it again, WordPress will tell me it has already uploaded.

Has it uploaded to the wrong place? I wonder. The process is so automated and opaque to me that I can’t even check.

Has anyone else had this problem? The world is missing out on Ollie photos. This must not be.
