Swampland, sky, and a question...

Monday, before heading to the Heron Viewing Station, we swung by this swamp area that we found a few years ago...We did not see one single turtle, or blue heron, or duck....but there were a ga-zillion dragon flies...
Almost all were this kind...it is cropped...mainly just to make it square...we fooled around here and as we were getting ready to leave Roger told me to look....
It was such a glorious day, even if it was hot and muggy.

Now to the question, did anyone else have problems with youtube today?  Not only did I have trouble with you tube, my gmail account has acted up.

With youtube, if I looked up something, then clicked for google to list the videos, I could click on a video and it would play.  But if I went to Youtube and looked up something, maybe the commercial part would play, but the video I went to see would not load, no matter how long I waited.  This happened even with my chromebook, so don't think it was my computer.  However, I cleared the browsing history and cache and it seems to be working better.  I am almost afraid to say that, though, cause I thought I had solved it a time or two throughout the day only to be wrong.

As for Gmail, I have been able to get my email, but different things about gmail would not load.  I could not check the little boxes to delete an email, the delete button did not show up half the time.  Just so many little things.  It has been a very frustrating day...I think I visited two blogs this morn, and had trouble with both of them.  Restarting my computer, I was able to see them, but then same old thing.

I have just now visited a couple and going to post this while the posting is good.

I am hopeless with the technical side of computers. Love your photos though!

Amazing that you could photograph the dragonfly. Those clouds are so pretty! Like Gil, I have no technical advice! lol

I'm glad you explained what was happening to you and gmail! My husband was just complaining about his gmail account and was afraid he had downloaded a bug. But now that you have said you are having trouble with gmail too, I'm thinking it has something to do with gmail.

if you are using Chrome browser, try another one, i had to stop my Chrome and use Firefox... i don't have gmail but my friend said hers has been acting up for the past two days. Google is probably doing something in the back ground.

My computer is switching out as I type, some of the time this morning. Weird, but it's not happening all the time. If it continues, I'll call the Geek Squad. Best annual investment ever!

I have occasional glitch days with google- that is part of the reason I moved my email. I do switch back and forth from Chrome to Firefox when one or the other is having a bad hair day.

Beautiful beautiful pic of the road with the huge clouds/ Love it.
The Blue Damsel Fly is the state Insect of Washington. I don't know if that is one because there are several blues.
Don't know a thing about YouTube or Gmail so I cannot help you there. Hope you get the problem solved SOON.
