Tuna Chowder; blog problems

This is one of the dinners I made for myself while mon mari was enjoying French hospital food.

It’s not just that he wouldn’t have eaten it had he been home….

He would have left the house while I made it.

It’s one of two things I remember making in my Home Ec class in high school.

The other was Baked Alaska – which I have never made again.

Being practical I made enough for two meals.

Tuna Chowder

Total time: 40 minutes


  • 4oz (120gr) tuna, drained weight, broken apart

I was very happy.

I am not happy about a blog problem I apparently have but can’t reproduce or identify.

I need help.

I have been told be several people that some blog posts are ‘garbled’… as in random unreadable characters rather than proper words.

It’s not the same post or the same post twice in a row, but random posts that will be fine one day and not the next.

I can’t reproduce the problem on my either of my computers, my tablet or my phone, none of which are Apple devices.

From input it appears that, for at least one person, the problem happens when the post is looked at on an iPhone using a Facebook ap.

If anyone can give me more info or even the same info, I would greatly appreciate it….

I have no idea what I’ll be able to do but knowledge always helps. (At least, some of us think knowledge helps.)

And that’s it for today….. We’ve been having high winds and driving rains all day with occasional power outages. This is as much online time as I’m going to risk at the moment.

  1. I love seeing what you are cooking and usually view it through Facebook but on a PC (old fashioned desk top) and it, so far, has always been fine. Hope you figure out the problem. This looks like a lovely dish for cold weather.

  2. Hi Katie – I remember a dish similar from home-ec class too. The old classics are so good. I had trouble the other day with the same issue from my laptop. Can’t remember what post it was on…then the next day it was fine. Strange….again very random.

  3. Using my iPad from the Facebook app, from my timeline, I get the garbled information.

    If I do a search on Facebook, it’s fine

  4. I saw it on the “Beef and Enchilada…” post on FB on an iPhone. The posts after that, and the post before that, were fine. I can email a pic if you want to see garble-porn. I’ve no idea why it happened. I could only speculate that any problem is discrete to that post (since all others come up fine on my mobile device). My view off your website is fine for that “Beef and Enchilada…” post is fine. Maybe chalk it up to Russian hackers and don’t sweat this anomaly much?

  5. And also, for record-keeping, I use an Apple mobile device set to U.S. English, with the latest (naturally) operating system released by Apple.

  6. You made Baked Alaska in Home-Ec?! Wow. That’s a far cry from the Double Fudge Pudding Cake we made!

    I love the sound of your tuna chowder. I’ll have to bookmark it for the next time that I’m having lunch by myself. (It appears that our husbands must be related. Mine can’t abide tinned tuna.)

  7. Thanks, everyone, for the info. All the replies I’ve made have disappeared. More mysteries, but thanks for all the help

    Elizabeth, yes, Baked Alaska. I also learned to sew by making an apron. The nuns were a bit old-fashioned…..
