Weekend Open Mic

Weather: We’re in for an absolutely fabulous week as far as weather goes, especially for the beginning of August.  We had a very hot and humid July but August is looking much better, at least so far.

The weekend: I’ll be out for all of Saturday and some on Sunday.  Saturday I’ll be at a mud volleyball tournament all day that our group has put on for the last 33 years. The weather couldn’t be better.  Sunday is clean-up and recoup day and dinner with friends.  

TV:  I finished watching season 1 of Ozark on Netflix.  I enjoyed it a lot.  I’ve watched a few episodes of The Keepers and Black Mirror, both also on Netflix.

Websites: We got another thousand likes on B&P posts and comments this past week.  

I may try a different way to use the video ads I removed a couple weeks ago. Google Ads is suggesting I let them put them up automatically as opposed to me putting the code in. I’m hoping that would eliminate the problems some readers were having.  If I try this next week please let me know if you experience the scrolling problem we previously had.  I will remove them until a better solution is found. I just really need the income the ads produce to keep this place going if at all possible. 

That’s it from B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?

  1. Not sure if it’s the same thing – but one of the sites I admin uses adsense, and caused the following report earlier in the week “The 2 videos on the left side kept scrolling the page to the bottom so I would have to see their ads when I was…”

    Curious as to the specifics of the change you’re going to be trying to make.

    • That’s just about the same problem we had. Google sent me an email that said they could post them automatically. I don’t know if that would work but I think I’m gonna try a test and see if it would.

  2. I have been binge-watching the original “The Twilight Zone.” As some know, it was on from 1959 – 1964 (156 episodes), and how things have changed is interesting: shows are in color, almost everyone in the Twilight Zone smokes, Telly Savalas had hair (well, some), and several actors and actresses have been in several episodes. And the theme song did not show up until the second season.

    I should be able to sleep without a light on in a week or two.

  3. You should ask for a poll of all your readers if they experience the same problems (like I do), and if it’s a small percentage, then those people (myself included) would ‘have to do”. The last thing a real reader of Bits and Pieces wants is for the site to be discontinued. You’ve put too much work into it. I notice not too many comments on this subject.

  4. I was having issues with it, but honestly wondered if it was just me until others started commenting.
