Trouble with Sparks tonight

Friday, March 09, 2012

It took me almost an hour to enter fitness min for the last 3 days. For some reason everything was working very slowly. I have "Fios" internet connecttion with the Pro plan, so I think it was this site rather than ATT. Some things were working really fast, likely the spin wheel. But getting the pages to enter mins, miles, ect. was taking bwt 3-5 mins. to get the page up. Every time I would enter something, once again I had to wait and wait and wait. I am not going to even try to enter food at this point. It took close to 2 1/2 mins. to get the blog page to come up.
I am going to try to upload a picture I took last week of the canisters I got at a garage sale a while back. Some who read my blogs may remember me talking about them. I got 3 of the canisters and the blue vase was an extra bonus.

This is a picture that a neighbor gave me after I saw it at her garage sale. I was going to go back and buy it but never got around to it. She gave it to me one day about a week later for free. I love it.

Jeff had a great birthday but had to work unitl 7pm. He also worked until 7pm last night and he is not home from work at 9:37pm. I had cook a nice pork loin with potatoes and carrots. He can have leftovers for his lunch tomorrow.

Ok that is about it. I sure hope Sparks works better for me tomorrow.

    Love the vase and canister!! Good find. I bet you are going to enjoy looking at them on your counter.
    Hope you have better luck with your internet. Have you tried foxfire or google chrome? They seem to work the best with SP.

    Oh, Teri! The vase and cannister are really beautiful, and the picture just seems to go with them so well. Creates kind of a "Southwest" mood to me! Thanks for posting the pictures! You have a good eye!

    Sometimes I have trouble with the site, too, but tonight it is working well for me!

    Pretty vase and canister! I love the picture too. It is so frustrating to have pages load so slowly......I'd be taking a break too.

    Happy birthday to Jeff! Take care and have a great weekend.

    Sorry Sparks wasn't working for you last night. I usually Spark late at night and that is when it can be troublesome as I think they use that time for site upgrades, but I didn't have trouble last night. Also if you are using Windows explorer and get two many windows open it can bog down, so just shut them all down and restart it. I have it set to dump my history when it closes to insure its not being overloaded. It doesn't have a great virtual memory. Mozilla works better.
    Those are lovely finds from the garage sales, way to go!!
    Hope you have a fantastic Friday and a great weekend!

    I love that canister and vase together- blue is my favorite color. Great find. My computer does that sometimes. Try restarting computer and see if that helps.
