Taking One For The Tadpoles

It is such a glorious day in the pond that I am not the wee littlest bit ticked [nope!] that I just wrote another entire post - with the cake recipe no less - and while I was out of the room for a moment it disappeared.

POOF!

Dangit. Why does this keep happening?  And it was a good post too, with full Skippyness on display.  Just what y'all needed on a Saturday morning, right?
It's better than coffee, 'tis true.

As it is I don't have time to rewrite it, but I wanted to assure you that I will do it when we get home tonight. because. . . .

In light of the comments on the previous post and a few choice emails I have received I will admit to being a little afeared of y'all. ::laughing::

You are a cranky mob when you don't have cake. 

And yes, I did take one for the team.
How you ask?
I actually made a third Danger Cake.
[For those of you counting that is 3 batches of this cake in less than a week. I am averaging a cake every 36 hours. HA!  120 lbs is in my rearview and coming up fast mmmkay? ::grins::]

But I know you understand why I did.
I had to make absolutely sure it was perfect for my friends, right?
 ::cough::

Okay - we're ouuuuutttttaaaaa here!  If you are in the snow, please stay inside, warm and snuggly. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers that the power stays on and you will be dug out soon. In the meantime enjoy the downtime.

See ya' on the flipside gang! Love ya', Skippy

PS - Now Blogger is just screwing with me. I looked in "Drafts" while posting this and the last post, with the recipe is there. Sigh. I need to clean it up. So no cake until tonight. See ya'!

Once upon a time, Jesus and Satan were in a big argument about who was better at the computer. God decided to settle it with a contest. Work for 6 hours, and whoever had more done at the end would be the winner. For six hours the devil ran around, designing graphics, looking up info, creating spreadsheets, moving like a madman. Jesus sat there, taking His sweet time. With five minutes left to go, a huge thunderstorm rumbled in. Lightning knocked out the power. Satan lost everything he had done; but when power returned, all of Jesus' work was still there. Satan screamed when God declared Jesus the winner. "It's not fair!" Satan cried. "I did much more work, but the storm destroyed it all! How is it that Jesus didn't lose his?"

God said, "Don't you know? JESUS SAVES."

That's a lot of cake! I'm looking forward to the recipe, too.

OK, I'm glad it isn't just me! I've had Blogger eat a couple of my posts before, and that combined with the fact that I'm not a fan of the new interface makes me want to switch to something else, (most likely Tumblr.)

You are just toying with us about that cake recipe, aren't you?! I don't believe that the computer is just making things disappear like that!! That certainly is a lot of cake my friend. I liked CWMartin's comment by the way. That did make me smile on this very dark, dreary afternoon here in deepest Devon. Still, at least we're not snowed in, so that's some consolation I suppose. Now then, back to this cake recipe - if it's not in your next post, we will ALL come over there and hang you upside down til you give it to us!!! Hugs.

Blogger does save automatically - my problem is that my computer paired with my sausage fingers sometimes deletes my work and before I can shut down blogger to get it from drafts, blogger will save again and I have nothing!

I look forward to cake!
