On my Species Universe site the WordPress instillation spell check doesn’t work. I am including a couple of screen shots here in order to link to from the WordPress.org forums where I am making my official inquiry into this issue. I didn’t see any way to include an image there so I am posting them here and linking to them from there.
Of course anyone reading this post and knows how to correct this issue can leave a comment below and/or follow the link above to where my official inquiry is and leave a response there.
Anyhow, the miss spelled words are highlighted but when right clicking on them no options for correcting the miss spelled words appears just these error messages. So, here are the images of the errors (click on the images in the gallery and/or the images below the gallery enlarging them in order to see more clearly the errors):
Again, anyone with any insights into how to correct this issue will be appreaciated sharing them here and/or on the WordPress.org site where I’ve made my official iquiry into this issue. Thanks.

Here at John’z Place we’re always Fishing for the Truth
So I decided to put it in the Header
With a little help from Paint.net and a great instructional YouTube video by TheWordPressAcademy on how to make Headers using Paint.net I was able to come up with this nice little new Header for my web site here on WordPress John’z Place.
Fishing for the truth just seems to capture the attitude of most bloggers and certainly this one.

Anyone having the frustration of using the WordPress plugin “Tweet This” in their blog(s) and getting the error:
“Tweet failed. Twitter returned HTTP 403. Check your OAuth settings and re-save this post to try again.“
I don’t remember ever getting anything but this error response using “Tweet This” in spite of this plugin being recommended by a lot of successful Internet Marketers and bloggers. I was giving up hope for this plugin and just about to delete it from all my blogs.
Finally out of desperation I checked out the “Tweet This” plugin settings. I found the “Report bugs here” link at the bottom of the page and followed this link to Richard X. Thripp’s plugin page.
You can read his remarks at the top of the page about his “Tweet This” WordPress plugin for information about the plugin and how to use it.

If you follow the news, you might have noticed two seemingly unrelated developments.
One, the hurricane season has been a dud. Last year, it was one killer tropical storm after another. This year, we’re still waiting for the big one to crash onto the shoreline.
The forecasts were frightening. This hurricane season was supposed to be worse than the last, when Katrina and her friends led to more than 2,000 deaths and billions of dollars in destruction.
Two, the stock market has moved into record territory, with the Dow Jones industrial average closing at 12,116.91, its best historical close.
A coincidence? No, the Maharishi Effect.
It’s the 1,200 advanced Transcendental meditators who are camping out for six hours a day in Fairfield and elsewhere, “creating coherence in national consciousness” and changing the national mood.

Belief in God ‘childish,’ Jews not chosen people: Einstein letter
LONDON (AFP) – Albert Einstein described belief in God as “childish superstition” and said Jews were not the chosen people, in a letter to be sold in London this week, an auctioneer said Tuesday.
The father of relativity, whose previously known views on religion have been more ambivalent and fueled much discussion, made the comments in response to a philosopher in 1954.

Vatican: It’s OK to believe in aliens
VATICAN CITY — There could be alien life forms and believing they exist isn’t contradictory to having faith in God, the top astronomer at the Vatican said in an interview published Tuesday.
“In my opinion this possibility exists,” Funes, the director of the Vatican Observatory, told L’Osservatore Romano. “Astronomers believe the universe is made up of 100 billion galaxies, each of which consists of 100 billion stars. … Life forms could exist in theory even without oxygen or hydrogen.”

Time travel is easy. The trick is finding a way to choose your route. Quirks of relativity aside, we never get to see the clock spin in any direction but forward and at a fixed and unvarying rate. (Illusions born of daylight savings time, inter–time zone travel and medication don’t count.) However much we might like to stop, divert or roll back time, our sense of it remains linear and progressive. Yesterday always recedes. Tomorrow draws closer.

REPORT ON THE GLOBAL CONFERENCE ON RECONSTRUCTING THE WORLD
UN, Government Leaders Offered
To Bring Health, Good Fortune,
(NEW YORK) Governments can eliminate at least 50 percent of the problems of disease, conflict, and negativity in their countries by reconstructing the homes, offices, and government buildings in the nation according to the science of Vedic architecture in harmony with Natural Law.
Such a program of national reconstruction will maximize the happiness, health, and fortune of the people—and create a peaceful, prosperous nation.
This was the bold message delivered by Dr. John Hagelin, executive director of the International Center for Invincible Defense, and Dr. Eike Hartmann, Minister of Global Reconstruction of the Global Country of World Peace, during the “Global Conference on Reconstructing the World.” The conference was held on Friday, April 13, at the Global Financial Capital of New York, 70 Broad Street, in Manhattan, and was broadcast internationally via satellite and Internet webcast. (See www.GFCNY.net for a replay of the conference and a schedule of upcoming conferences.)

A DIVINE LIFE SOCIETY PUBLICATION
Hinduism is the religion of the Hindus. It is the oldest of all living religions. Hinduism is not a man-made religion. It was not founded by any single person. It is not based on a set of dogmas preached by a particular set of teachers. It was not started as a system, like Islam or Christianity.
It is the product of the seers of the Vedas. It was developed from age to age by the teachings of Avataras, Rishis, Vedas, the Upanishads, the Gita and the Itihasas. It will exist as long as the world lasts.
There is a peculiar, mysterious spiritual force that is ingrained in the heart of every Hindu. Hinduism is also known by the names Sanatana Dharma and Vaidika Dharma. Sanatana Dharma means eternal religion, the Ancient Law. Vaidika Dharma means the religion of the Vedas. The Vedas are the foundational scriptures of Hinduism.
