I am unable to see or moderate comments at the moment. Bloggers says it is a known issue and they are trying to solve it. So sorry if you cannot leave a comment or it isn't getting moderated but it is out of my hands. Hopefully, normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
(For those who don't recognise it - the above picture is the old test card that the BBC used to show when it was off air! When there was a breakdown it would sometimes appear accompanied by an apology and the phrase 'Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible'. Known as Test Card F it shows Carole Hersee wearing a red shirt and red hairband, and Bubbles, the clown, surrounded by colour scales and test graphics. The card was transmitted from 1967 to 1998. Designed by Miss Hersee's father, George Hersee, a BBC engineer, it is being broadcast again on the BBC's high definition (HD) channel to help viewers tune their HD sets, and is currently shown for 90 seconds every two hours when programmes are not on air. Technicians have rescanned the card in HD to allow viewers to set the colour, contrast and sharpness on modern televisions. Carole - an eight year old in the picture is now 50 and was surprised to see she was back on TV in HD earlier this year.)

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
