You have to dig down through the snow to get any food. Looks like hard work.

“WENDY” IMAGE

On Thursday 7-5-2018, I met my parents, youngest sister and my nephew at Wendy’s. My nephew was having a little fun making us look like Wendy in a caricature on his phone and I asked him to send it to my computer. This is what I look like when he made me look like Wendy. I wanted to share it with you.  THIS SNAP DONATED $5 TO ADOPTION.

#Bullying, #Depressing News, #Be Positive

WELCOME TO CRYSTAL'S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)

Everyone has their routine and something tells me watching the news falls in your routine somewhere. If it doesn’t, you’re lucky because the news is usually depressing anyway unless you have something like Royal wedding or a bunch of ducklings being rescued from a sewer drain and reunited with the mother duck(which actually did happen).

In my part of the world(don’t know about yours) the news is talking about bullying, sexual assault accusations, Trump canceling and un-canceling the summit with North Korea,  a lot of protesting over blacks getting shot and even more depressing news which I’m not going to list. I’m not trying to be mean but if you don’t follow commands you might get shot.

#BULLYING

#Bullying is very real. Bullying not only happened when I went to school and it happened a lot. Only Back then it wasn’t called bullying it was called being picked on continuously…

UPDATE

This is an update on some comments going to my WordPress SPAM FOLDER. I addressed this 5 days ago and if you haven’t read the post or you just want to refresh in your mind what I’ve said, you can read the post by clicking HERE

To those who are going to my SPAM FOLDER and are wondering why? Let me try to explain. I’ve been getting SPAMMED by certain sites and from what I’ve been seeing WordPress SPAM Filter is not only putting the sites in SPAM but other sites with part of the same URL.

What Do I want from you? I need all of you to patient and bear with me please. Another thing I ask of you especially those getting Spammed please don’t keep commenting me What? If you have a legit blog I will find that out when I check out your site. If you only leave me only an e-mail address well I have no way of checking that out so it probably won’t be approved unless I recognize it. Also to those who have a blog in some other language other than English, please make sure you have Google Translator or another way to translate to English so I can check your blog out.  Please keep commenting.

I can hear the question now she’s told us what she wants us to do but what’s she going to do? Well I’ve done part of it already. Below is what I’m going to do.

  1. Take all e-mails off Blacklist(DONE).

  2. Put certain e-mails on the list to go to moderation first. No guarantees 

    I’ve done everything I can so I guess we’ll see what happens. Also, just a friendly reminder don’t keep asking What? to me or other bloggers if you see your comment  might be going to SPAM. I check ALL sites out before approving. Keep in mind that if I can’t translate your site to English I can’t approve your comment. I will be posting this on my other site also so everyone can see it.

Thanks For Your Patience,

Baby Sparrow Resting

COMMENTS GOING TO SPAM FOLDER

It seems some of the comments are going to SPAM. Please don’t stop commenting due to this. I have contacted WordPress and really all I can do is mark them as not SPAM once you’ve commented and they go to the SPAM Folder. Please understand my reasoning, I’ve had spammers in the past so I have put certain sites on Moderation and the Blacklist. It seems that WordPress is not just Spamming these ones but putting other sites in Spam Folder if they have part of the e-mail in them so keep commenting and I will keep unSPAMMING.

Also, if you see that your comment has been SPAMMED by WordPress I ask you not to comment What? I can’t tell you how many What? comments I deleted. Please accept the fact I will be going over my SPAM Folder and your comment will be caught. If you have a long comment please use comment form because if your comment is to long it will go to SPAM. 

Thank You For Patience,
