A Photo-Edit Thank You.

When I posted my holiday photos recently, I was upset that a photo of Julie and Ollie was spoiled by leaving in a plastic shopping bag, and Ollie’s drinking bowl. Here is the offending photo.

Thanks, FR! 🙂

Fraggle's Otherverse

I promised Kim at By Hook or by Book Blog, that I would do a quick tutorial on how to access the classic editor in the new block editor, for when or if they finally remove the original classic editor from your choices. I already did one for how to keep the new block editor simple and there’s now a menu option on this blog’s page to access both tutorials, entitled WordPress Tutorials.

I am not a techy person, and I am a hobby blogger, not using it for commerce or as a business, so these tutorials are for people like me who like to ‘keep things simple stoopid’!
