About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Omg I love this! I just saw it for the first time! So awesome! Great job! So creative, and well thought out! How fun!

    • Hope you join in and link back to Frank’s post as he was host this week. My turn next week.

      • Lisa M. Boyd says:

        I went, on and dropped my link. I donโ€™t know how to link on my own post. I participated, and had a ball! I canโ€™t wait to do it again next week. I am struggling with the ping backs. They take longer than my post. Sometimes they work, and sometimes they donโ€™t. It is biggest frustration within WordPress. I think I will live though lol. I am off on my bike now, I did leave what I knew how to on his page for Fibbing Friday ๐Ÿ˜Š

      • It if helps, for the pingback in your post, highlite the link on the post you want to refer to and copy/paste it into your own. That’s how I do mine.

      • Lisa M. Boyd says:

        Whoa ๐Ÿ˜ณ youโ€™re awesome! Okay I will try that. Yikes I am so bad at this stuff. I am on my phone too. So…when I get home from my ride I shall indeed give this a try. Incredible, I should have been able to think of this myself lol. Getting goofy cuz I am riding soon. My favorite afternoon pass time! Trying to get as much in before my next surgery. Thanks for the words of wisdom! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค™

      • Good for you! Have you got a date for your next surgery?

      • Lisa M. Boyd says:

        No I need to get in this month, and make it for next month. I put something in as a ping back on my post, it lead to nothing or oops. I am not knowing what to add after all that. I am not seeing the whole link I think. I will look again when I get home from my ride. At least I went to his page and added my contribution there. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      • Bear in mind that pingbacks have to be approved manually so it might still be in ‘limbo’ sotospeak.

    • PCGuyIV says:

      Regarding the length of time for pingbacks, there are two basic reasons this can sometimes be the case: 1) There are a few strange times that pingbacks don’t come through in a timely fashion, if at all, and unfortunately, there isn’t much any of us can do about it, since the pingbacks are a function of WordPress, and not something inherent with all blogging platforms. And 2) especially with my blog, all pingbacks and comments have to be approved by me before they will show up. Though I usually have my phone with me, I’m not always in a position to approve links or comments when they come through, so sometimes they sit waiting on me. Also, the spam-catcher will sometimes get overzealous and mark something as spam that is technically a legitimate pingback or comment, and I don’t always catch it.

      In the case of today’s post, I saw where you have a proper link in at the end of the post, but WordPress has decided to eat the pingback rather than let it through, It may show up in a day or two, or it may be lost forever. No way to know for certain.

      • thanks Frank. Your clarification is way better than I could ever do.

      • Lisa M. Boyd says:

        Wow that is a lot of information to take in. Thank you for explaining it all to me. Well I guess I keep trying, and hope the ones I do right do go through. If not at least I am posting, and participating! It was so much fun! Thank you for taking time to explain all of this to me.
