For You

Good morning all.

So on Monday night the recaptcha nightmare set in whilst doing my DT commenting and continued all day yesterday...I'd never had a problem before and it was fine when I started commenting all I can think that triggered it was the volume of comments I was making! After several hours tearing my hair out looking for a solution I've managed to reduce it to ticking the "I'm not a robot box" and no longer have to verify the pictures....who in the name of all that's holy dreamt up that one!!!

In Chrome tools menu I went to Settings, scrolled to bottom and clicked Advanced Setting then selected Content Settings and under Cookies made sure Allow Local Data to be set was ticked. Then go into Manage exceptions and set one up using a Hostname pattern shown below and leave the behaviour as allow.


I hope this helps anyone else having problems and if anyone has any alternate fixes please share :)

So whilst I managed to sort my Christmas cards out and printed my address labels none of them got written...I guess today's another day!

Sharing with you today my November make for the Card Chain Challenge card swap which was sent to Christy in California.

Poppy stamp and die from Sheena Douglas....a recent RAK from a card swap partner, simply matted and layered.

    I had problems yesterday as well - I do think it is related to volume. It was OK when I started, then I had to tick the "I'm not a robot box", then it progressed to having to verify the pictures, then all of a sudden it all disappeared and I was back to normal!
    Thank you for sharing your fix.
