Can't wait for Part 2!! And maybe you'd like to take a look at
posterous.com, it is very straight forward as blog platform. I'd hate to see you stopping because of the "improved" blogger...
if you are on a pc and not a mac i suggest "live writer" you can write and post your photo's on it and not be on your blog at all.. then after you put your blog address into the program all you do is click "publish" and it puts it on your blog... you never have to go into your blog at all!
if not that then I hope you choose another place to blog.. there are many out there: wordpress, livejournal etc but please don't go away naomi!
oh, i was so upset you might leave I forgot to mention that the mansion is fabulous and I can't wait for part 2~
Fascinating history. I, too, eagerly await part 2.
Goodness, they really printed graphic murder pictures in the day. That mansion has a bit of spook value to it.
This is an interesting tale and I can't wait for more.
Don't let Blogger win Naomi. Hang in there.
The new blogger format is horrendous!
What a tragic happening - I blew up the small print so I could read it.
Don't leave us in suspenders too long please:)
These are two fascinating and well written histories, one about your father's love of art and the other about a famous Beverly Hills mansion and family. Hope you have better technical luck with your blog. Looking forward to the play, part two. Also enjoy your movie reviews and opinions about performers.
I was shocked to see such a graphic image too. I loved hearing more about your father and his art collection. I can't wait for part 2 either.
Give yourself time with the new blogger layout. I think you'll get there in the end it just takes longer to find everything. It is all still there, it's just it takes longer to work out where!
I enlarged the newspaper and read the article. Do you have any more reports on this story? Did they ever say what the cause was of his insanity?
What a fascinating history and also tragic happening!
The Greystone house looks awesome.
I am looking forward to Part 2.
Thanks for sharing this amazing story.
Like the entertainter that you are you've left us with a cliffhanger: Will she or will she not post Part 2??
I find the house, the history and the connection with your father and his art collection very interesting and would love to hear more. Your father was a man who stuck to his guns; I love that!
Btw, as far as Blogger goes, I've managed to post with a different browser (Google Chrome works OK, not great but bearable) and I only use it for posting. I visit blogs and comment on Internet Explorer. So far I'm not losing any sleep over it.
I do hope you don't stop blogging, my friend. I look forward to your posts, pics and stories!
Hugs from Miami...♥
Naomi, if you need any help with Blogger please ask me as you are not going to stop blogging because we will not allow it.
What a fascinating post. And what a great book you blog would be. I love hearing about your father and his art collection. A man before his time wouldn't you say?
I love the house but what an horrific thing to happen. Can't wait to hear part 2.
I am trying to think where your father was from again. Greece, Italy, Malta? I have to go and read some old posts.
Take care xx
I'll gladly help you too!
just don't stop blogging, I love you so much
and what a history
I'm glad the art collection didn't end up in California, as I'd probably never get to see it there! At the Smithsonian it's so much more achieveable, not quite so far for me to go.
But that certainly is a very impressive house.
Ooh - this is as exciting as a movie! And complete with twists and turns...Waiting for part 2... I'm a little surprised at the murder scene photo being released like that!
Hi Naomi. The only thing that's changing is Google is moving everyone's Blogger usernames/passwords under its new centralized Google Account. The service itself isn't going anywhere: if you have a Gmail account or sign in to use any other Google-owned service, you'll simply use THAT username to access Blogger from now on.
Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any more questions or need help managing the transition.
Now, the important stuff: You always make me feel like I'm witnessing history. This could become a book, you know...
Waiting patiently for Part 2.I hope you can sort out your issues with new blogger,change isn't always a good thing right.
Love always :D
You say room for expansion and it reminds me of Rose Red from Steven Kings books and the movie. I had to kind of laugh at that one with how my mind processed the comparison.
We have just come back from New Orleans and I am way behind again. I love your use of old postcards in your posts – you know I am a postcard collector – I think it adds a lot to a post. It must have been quite something to see Miami in the 50s. I am with you- I don’t like all the reality shows and their supposed stars. Your family photos in Miami are so sweet - thanks for sharing them with us. Your Greystone story is fascinating – looking forward to read part 2.
Yesterday I found that Blogger had changed. I wrote my post but for some reason the font changes between paragraphs even though my font on my document stays the same. I published the post yesterday afternoon but it never updated in Blogger. A little while ago I went back to my post and changed a space, clicked on “update” and it updated Blogger – 17 hours late. I certainly don’t like their new set up. I hope though that you’ll keep on blogging as your posts are always so interesting. My sincere good wishes for your brother’s health – I am sending healing thoughts to him.
I'm hooked. Such a historic story. I hope one of your blog friends (not me because I have no tech no logic sense) will run you through the changes. Maybe if you posed your question on google you would find others who feel the same way and are figuring it out.
What a fascinating story.
I hope you find something that works with blogging. I have not had trouble with blogger but I didn't do the interface when they said it was an option. I did upgrade to the latest beta version. I wonder if I'll have the interface forced onto me as it seems that must be the problem for the writers. I have heard so much from many writers about the frustration it has given them.
I like blogging, hope I can continue with it but I never figured it would last forever. it seems everything has its time and then disappears with so-called improvements.
Dear Naomi I know how hard it is to get used to this new computer crap. I too hate it and am struggling, please don't give up !! I so enjoy all the things you share. you have so much knowledge of that area, you Dear Naomi are a National Treasure ! keep writing !
Wow!!!! Great history lessons!!!!
And I think your dad's art is exactly where it belongs!!!!
Fascinating and now I'm on to read part 2. So interesting.
