November Nonsense

I got a letter from Google and have asked them to send me in plain English what they are asking me to do. It is so full of legalese that I don't know what it is saying. They took a specific post away for copyright infringement. Since they took it away, I can't view it so don't know what specifically on it was unsatisfactory. I've replied as such to them but they haven't replied back to me.

I'm having my sister in law for dinner tonight. My son is away so I'm back to eating fish instead of meat. Her husband doesn't like the smell of fish cooking at their house (the same as his nephew, my son) so we get together for fish meals when one of them is away. I've cooked homemade baked beans - just took them out of the oven - and home made fish cakes made from salt cod. It's a tradition Maritime meal. Chow Chow, a type of pickle, is served with them and we have that and lots of other homemade pickles to choose from. Yum!

I'm packing up this piece of stained glass to take to my aunt. I had made it twenty years ago for my grandmother. It was returned to me when she was taken to a nursing home. My aunt and grandmother were very close so I'm passing it on. A lot of people I know are traveling at the moment. I have two different friends going to Vancouver on Thursday, most likely on the same plane. They don't know each other.

Rosie Thomas and Rosemary Clooney are bringing the music today. I'll let you guess which one is which. Here's Much Farther to Go and Any Place I Hang My Hat is Home. I am still experiencing difficulties from Putfile and am using the alternate method. I'm no longer going to mention this. Whatever host brings you the song, is ok with me. Putfile dosn't allow uploads and the alternate does so some people are happier.

I haven't had fish cakes for years.
My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

The stained glass is beautiful!!

When I got my message from blogger/google, they at least provided the link to the post (it was music of course) so I could read it and see what was offending somebody--in my case the people who produce Teddy Thompson's records. There's no hint at all??

Alf, nothing easier in the world to make which is the same for baked beans. Call me if you want to know how.

Cuidado said...

The link and name of the post is there, Ralph but it takes me to a page that says there is no such page. They have removed it.

Ralph said...

Yeah, that's how it was for me, too, but I could tell from some info in the url what they took down. It's the pits!

Cuidado said...

Ralph, My page was called Roads and Rambling or something like that and I wish I knew what was one it.

They took down a music post of mine as well. It was Blue Oyster Cult. Because Ralph and I post our music outside the musings, it makes it easier to know what disappears.

I have the first word I've ever had for word verification. It fits google. The word is swine.

Ralph said...

Kat, LOL at the word verification. But I don't blame google, really. The messages they send are fig leaves for a do-next-to-nothing approach. If somebody asks them to remove a post or they'll sue, I don't think they have a choice. But to their credit, they don't go looking.

Cuidado said...

I think you're right, Ralph but I would like to know what was posted that day so that I don't repeat the error.

Kat, I won't complain about Google as my spot here is free. Blogs I pay for I have a different attitude about. I'm glad you found out who didn't want you to post. If I were a musician I would be happy for someone to post my song for the enjoyment it brings to others. Someone paid for the cd at some time and we're just listening again.
