Google broke blogger, Chicks with power tools, perfect valentines day present, blackberry down

I have been trying to post this blog for a week now and have been unable to  get photos to download.  I have been through all the  'helps' and quite frankly have concluded that they are amelioration BS.  A few months ago, Google broke blogger.  Their answer to  frustrated bloggers who cant upload photos or get the buggy  banner on their  overview page that says 'browser unsupported' is to  make  the people seeking  help jump through a whole lot of pointless hoops   just to wind up back at the beginning  with blogger still broken.  The upside for Google is the time  you have jumped through all their  fiery hoops and followed  all their dead end  rabbit trails......... ya just don't give a shit anymore and stop trying.... so they don't have to deal with you.  I give up... they win.
I'm just gonna post what I have and be done with it.

When you are a backyard farmer,  Valentines Day romance  morphs into something  strange and wonderful.  Jimmy bought me a really good hedger because I had been complaining that  cutting blackberries with my organic and quiet hand tools  was just too hard on my poor recovering hands.   The day before VD he came home with it in the trunk of the car and was worried that I wouldn't like it.  He was afraid that I would have preferred flowers or candy or jewelry.  Don't get me  wrong...I love flowers, candy and jewelry but,  I'm hard wired to  love power tools as well.
We pulled it out started it up and fifteen minutes later the blackberries that were back and threatening to swallow our beautiful vegetable beds  ...were gone.   Ok... the roots still need to be dug out but, that's the easy part.  I'm  just grateful that it only took fifteen minutes to do, with the appropriate power tool,  what it took me a month to do  by hand  when we first moved in.
15 minutes wasn't enough with my new toy so I also tackled some of the   other overgrown areas in the yard.  I whacked my way through the property for about an hour before deciding it was time to quit because  I still had another hour left of cleaning up everything I had  cut down.
Jimmy said I looked very sexy  wielding a deadly power tool.  He's so sweet and what a sweet valentines day  thing to say!

  1. My favorite garden/yard tool of all time was my mini electric chainsaw. Gotta love those power tools!
