Hi, I was doing a search in LJ and I was getting 404 errors. Looks like they are using a Google custom search engine and it’s failing…I tried finding a support contact but couldn’t find it on the site. Anyone else having issues searching projects? I searched in projects for the word “closet” and received the error.

Yup, I started a thread after a couple of other people did the other day… On way to do it to get what you want till they get it fixed is to do a search directly at google for what you want using the word ‘lumberjocks’. ie to find all murphy beds type in ‘lumberjocks murphy bed’ and it will show you google items in LJ’s for them.

I just googled ” lumberjocks cannabis ” images . Why ? simple boredom . The first picture is a pipe by lizardhead that is titled;
Peace Pipe . Pretty typical fare . Then I started to notice certain other images that seemed out of place but somehow seemed vaguely familiar . I clicked on one ,and voila , there I am . Then I clicked on another ,zap ,here I am again. Then another, and snap, here I am again ! Go click on an odd picture. See if you can find the LJ mystery thread that was demographed
by google almost two years ago . Factoid… one mentions cannabis at all on that thread ! : ) That person who was working at google must have been high on the day that they loaded that stuff up .

~peace pipe

I guess its time to start another forum topic…just for the archives . : )

Go To ,Forum, “Site Feedback” there are 7 Topics on this same Issue. Starting about 6 Days ago.

There are some workarounds there if you want to use them. One is as “Craftsman” has already pointed out.

I know Rick , can you relate more to deja vue or voo doo ? Whew , its dangerous over in
Site Feedback , mess with yer mind…... technologic .

Well on my search as i mentioned above and the oddly familiar images :

This image on the cannabis page was posted by…..................................wait for it… buddy Rick !!
This image on the cannabis page….posted by yours truly.
This image was posted by my friend renners

This one was posted by my friend Vipond33

So if you click on any of these images it takes you to a forum topic by my friend Jimbo4 ,
Jimbo’s title was ” HereI am again ! ” Probably the funniest spontaneous exchange of comedy
I’ve experienced while here at LJs …....a classic

I went back and reviewed that thread , someone did mention cannabis , it was….Oldnovice ! Funny chit .

Medication is not a problem anymore. Found a Universal Pill you can buy at Wal Mart.

Handles IT ALL!!

EDIT: Sorry Moment. I took the Pic Off. Before “Somebody” else would of, for sure.

I guess this picture of last Fridays Date should be okay. Cute Little Thing, isn’t She?

Just in case y’all hadn’t noticed yet, the search option is working.
