A Warning!


I want to tell you a little something I discovered last night…
This only applies  to you if you have Google Plus.
I was browsing through my photos on Google Plus and there were so many photos there that I didn’t need any longer, since they are all from my previous blog postings, so I started deleting them.
Yes, you probably already guessed it…
I was unknowingly deleting them from my previous blog post!
This is the warning!
Do not delete your Google Plus photos because they are actually all of your blog photos!!!
Oh, I know that many (probably most) of you don’t need to be warned of this.
You were smart enough to figure this out!
But I have often wondered when I have seen blank photos on other blogs why the pictures were no longer there.
Well now I think that the blogger may have unknowingly deleted their photos as I started to do.
So just in case there is even one person out there that doesn’t know this, I want to save you the pain of learning this the hard way as I did!!
Now, on a more fun note…
Would anyone like to guess at what these three objects were used for?
I found them in my basement and photographed them some time ago to see if anyone could identify them for me.
I do now know what there use was, but I’m curious to see if any of you can guess!

  1. Are they hemming measuring sticks?? Kimberly, I do not dare to remove any photos…I for one would not know what the heck I was doing. I tried to delete some photo files once, the picture were gone but the folder jackets remained and said I could not take they out. HMMM. Blessings, xoxo,Susie


  2. I never knew that thank you for that advice. What wonderful goodies to find in your basement. I have no idea but would they be something to be outside to measure the depth of snow? They wood looks so pretty.


  3. Well, much thanks for the info. It's good to know, and will save us frustration in the future.I'm not certain what the sticks are used for…. as I can't tell how long they are.Can't wait til you tell us 🙂


  4. I haven't figured out the advantage of using Google+, so there's no danger of me deleting anything there, LOL. Hmm, not sure what those measuring devices are for. Perhaps for a tailor to measure clothing for alterations?


  5. Oh dear. I didn't go to Google+ as I don't know how to use it but if I do I'll know about the photos. I got a notice somewhere that Picasa is now part of Google+ but I haven't figured out just how or what to do. I don't like changes. I thought the same as Donna, that the rulers might be for measuring skirt length. Now I'm curious for the correct use. 🙂 Have a great day!


  6. Oh. 😦 What a sad lesson to learn. But you made it a lot easier on the rest of us by your experience!You found those in the basement? They were to measure the depth of the water standing in the basement in the springtime? 😉 No idea. But I want to know!


  7. This is one of the reasons I have and never will switch to Google + or Chrome , they tend to control your stuff way to much . Thanks to Papa here who is a computer geek and a programmer as a hobby we knew all the ins and outs of these newer Google's Thanks for the info though . Have a good day !


  8. This is also true of Picasa Web Albums where photos are stored for those Blogger folk who have not joined Google +.The sticks…is someone measuring oil in the tank?


  9. I think they are tailor's measuring sticks, for different hemline lengths, to get the hem exactly straight. My Mum had one many years ago, and have no idea where it went to, but think it had a wider foot, Cheers,Jean.


  10. Thanks for the heads up, Kimberly, and sorry to hear that you had to learn the hard way! Have absolutely no clue what these were used for, but some of the guesses above sound pretty logical, like Diane's!Have a great week!Poppy


  11. Did NOT know this so good to know! Sorry it happened to you though, but it was nice you warned us. Have no idea what those sticks are. Obviously to measure something, but what? lol
