      I had to google Minnesota to see where it is πŸ™‚ Sooo, not too close to the sea then! I wonder what your predators are? Alligators, Bears, Raccoons? πŸ™‚

      No I don’t surf, but I know those who do. And Yes there are sometimes sharks in the water. Mostly they are spotted and you are warned not to swim. Now and then someone loses a leg or a life. But it is rare.

        hahaha πŸ™‚ I wouldn’t be able to see a shark. They swim far out in the surf line. Life Guards sit high up on seats, and they can sometimes spot them. Sorry Ady – you’ll have to watch a Nature programme for your shark footage πŸ™‚

      Yes, I was trying to be kind, and not crop the first photo too much. Seems it made it too easy. I shall have to return to my usual cunning πŸ™‚

        haha Good πŸ™‚
        btw I haven’t seen your posts in my WP reader lately – and am just trying to visit your blog – internet permitting. It looks like I am no longer following you – despite never having Unfollowed you!! I shall Re-follow and see if that works again. But it may explain my absence!!

        How strange, as I’ve been seeing your likes and comments OK, Mind you, I also ‘lost’ a few people in my reader and had to refollow.
        Have been putting out quite a few posts daily lately, so hope you don’t get too bored catching up if you’ve missed any! Welcome back!! πŸ™‚

        It looks like I have missed a lot – but your Blog won’t load properly yet. I’m afraid I’ll have to wait till tonight when the internet should be working again.
        Someone said they couldn’t Like my posts, so something is definitely going on.
        How can I suddenly not be following you when I have not changed it? Also, your gravatar is just a b/w shapeless head – you know? But I’ll persist! πŸ™‚

        Are you aware of any censorship or restrictions going on? Sometimes I can’t get into a blog post because it’s ‘too busy’, and even Hubby’s blog doesn’t put me in his reader sometimes (sob) !

        Oh No! That’s not on!
        No I don’t know of any restrictions. And I don’t want to bother Rachel Squirrel again! I felt I did enough complaining about the “new improved” WP! But judging by the comments, quite a few people were unhappy!

        Phew, that’s good to know then!
        New improved doesn’t seem to be all that brilliant imo, but we’re muddling through (and using the old formats wherever possible!) πŸ˜€
