I'm so glad you like the post, Ambree. Mechtild picked some lovely 'flowers' out of the Tolkien Field to illustrate, didn't she?

Speaking of birthdays, congratulations once more on your father's 100th and I hope there was a Party of Special Magnificence!

"there was a Party of Special Magnificence!"
There was!

[Hope you received email with link to newspaper item. Afraid Google-translate makes mess of translation. :-)]

oh, I"m so glad the party was G R A N D !!!

I did receive the email and replied to it....i think there's something wrong with email delivery, as thereafter i got a message from yahoo that i had to reset my password.....

But I used the google translate and it did a pretty good job....i think the one word it didn't translate was 'dam' and so i researched and found out that means 'checkers'. What an lovely and giving man your father is, dear Ambree. Such a wonderful life to celebrate!

How strange I didn't get your email and that your sending it caused problems with your yahoo account.

I'm beginning to think something might be wrong with my email provider. Every time I log on to LJ I'm asked to verify my email address. I also don't get email notifications of LJ comments any longer. That's why it took me so long to reply to you here. Must confess I'm feeling rather helpless about all this.....

My dad enjoyed his Grand Party, especially the Lord Major's visit.

I'm responding to you sooooo late for the very reason you state above: Suddenly came to my attention (in looking thru my LJ account for a long-lost user (Wellinghall) that I was also no longer getting notifications. I think you've fixed this problem for your own notifications now? (I had to go into my account and re-click a lot of stuff...they must have done some un-maintaining maintenance on LJ)....

"sooo late". Well, this reply is very much overdue. :-)
I still don't get email notifications, which is very strange because LJ does regularly send me emails about "what you may have missed" (full of posts from people that aren't even on my flist).

I have now adopted the strategy of checking "messages" on my "profile" to see if there are any new comments. That works but I still miss the notifications.

Ambree, I have heard from Jan about the lack of notifications. Just in case, I am copying and pasting your reply into an email. I've been getting mine, but there have been times when my notification function seemed to just evaporate, coming back later just as magically. ????

Thanks, Mechtild.
The strangest thing is that I get a warning each time I log on to LJ that my email address needs reconfirmation and yet I get these "in case you missed it" spam LJ-messages through my email all the time. I've reconfirmed my email many times but that hasn't brought the notifications back.

Inexplicable. And aggravating!

hellllloooooooo ladies......well, i think what we are seeing here is whomever has control of LJ acting just like the idiots who have control of yahoo.....(the other day, i logged into my mail only to find it utterly changed, looking like Bag End's garden on a summer day: full of flowers and butterflies but un-ful of anything you might need in terms of mail)...

anyway, Ambree.....I actually had to go into my Notifications on LJ and check everything and click or reclick that which had become undone.....and now it works splendidly....

so, if you have not tried that yet, that might help you.

BTW, stay tuned to Mechtild's LJ.......

i must also say: if there were a way to 'slap' LJ, I would. Especially those snarky "you might have missed" (to which i add: yes, and all because of YOU!)

ok, i'll go have lunch and then i'll be calmer.
