Swiss Threaten Ricola Embargo
January 4, 2006
BERN, SWITZERLAND
Angered by rising international tariffs against his nation, Swiss president Gunter Klima threatened a worldwide Ricola embargo Tuesday. "If these unfair tariffs are not lifted," Klima said, "we will have no choice but to withhold our natural Alpine-herb throat lozenges, causing billions of throats across the globe to go tragically unsoothed." An estimated 2.1 billion people rely on Swiss menthol for their throat-calming needs.

Rosie, I don't know ... I get that same thing when I got to other blogs on Blogger.com too. Usually I just hit internet explorer's refresh button and the page comes up.

I stand corrected, sis. Yer blog does the same thing as mine, it just keeps going back to day one (?)
Actually, I'll check on that right now. I'm not sure, but I think if someone wanted to forward , say, the t-shirt picture, it would send the whole of the blog...(Hey. I don't know cause I'm a dinosaur and my time at this here contraption (yes, better descriptive than computer) is all too limited. I would beg to come over to yer place and play, but, I'de have to bring all m'paints and shtuff, too.)....but, at this point, the "rambling on" part is making you go back to see where I first went into parenthesis, huh?
