apologies to my readers

update from my friend jeff branch has fixed the problem !! gold star for jeff ! here's the recipe if you have a blog of your own:

"The lightbox feature is back, but Blogger has added a setting to disable it. From your dashboard go to Settings, then under Settings, find Formatting and there is an option: Open Images in Lightbox, where you can select no. This worked for me.

worked for me too ... what a relief ... thanks again jeff

they're baaaaaaaack !!!!! aaaaahhhhhhh !!!!! the slideshows are back ..and i STILL hate them !!!!!

9/25 .. update
well now i have to take back my rant on google below. miraculously, my blog is now back and working how it used to work. click the photo; it gets bigger, like always. unless will did something that i don't know about, i give google a gold star for hearing blogger's complaints.

well, the folks at blogger seem to think they know how i want the photos to be displayed on my blog. after 4 years with them, they have now decided that everyone wants to see facebook slide shows when they click on an image ... that feature disconnects the photos from my text and effectively pretty much ruins the continuity of a post. it also, at least at my house, now takes every blog post longer to load. my apologies. this new format is not my choice and unless they change it or unless will can figure out how to work around it, i'll most likely be looking to move to wordpress or some other platform. in the meantime, thanks for your loyalty, comments and support ... we'll see what happens...

ps ... after a little reflection, the lightbox thing kind of works but you have to wait for all the pictures from each post to load (which may or may not be a problem, depending on the speed of your connection,) before you see them. to exit the slide show, just click anywhere outside the box, which will return you to the post.

I noticed the same thing. I have not seen an announcement from Blogger about the change.

I REALLY enjoy your site so much, even if it is slower or more cumbersome. If you move please be sure and post to where...thanks :)

Please, please do not stop the photos. I am secret admirer of your blog and love the pictures.

I think you are slowly being sucked into the whole Google Google+ environment.

Thanks for all the great pics and articles about your GREAT furniture.
