  2. For some technical reason, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/search?q=Dirck+Bouts (the author's name in the “Search” box) currently doesn’t find this masterpiece.

    Using just the author’s first name, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/search?q=Dirck finds another masterpiece, but currently not this one, and just the last name, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/search?q=Bouts currently finds 3 others (with Dieric, the preferred first name, that was used earlier), but again, not this one.

    I thought maybe it was because “Fitness” isn't currently in the shown list of “Categories” might have something to do with it; but, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/search?q=Liebermann finds http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2014/01/masterpiece-964.html, which also has FITNESS as its only LABELS: value. Not only that, it currently shows this masterpiece among its RELATED MASTERPIECES; so, somehow it found this.

    Again, this is just an FYI; feel free to delete it once the technical reason has been fixed.

    1. Thanks for letting me know, mabrndt. It looks to me like the search function is a little inconsistent. I just clicked on two different "Fitness" labels and got varying results (two Masterpieces one time, four the next). I'll keep an eye on it and see if I can figure out the issue.

    3. According to Google, https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&as_q=&as_epq=Arrivals&as_sitesearch=thatispriceless.blogspot.com, so far, this is the only time you used “Arrivals”. If I put that in the “Search” box, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/search?q=Arrivals doesn’t find this masterpiece either. So, it isn’t limited to just the name.

    4. Monday, 2/16/15, using the artist name combinations tried earlier in the “Search” box, found this blog entry, but using “Arrivals” still didn't find it. Then on Tuesday, “Arrivals” also found this blog entry, as did other words in the posted entry.

      The “Search” box worked right away for the intervening http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/02/masterpiece-1151.html, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/02/masterpiece-1152.html, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/02/masterpiece-1153.html, and, of course, the archived http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2010/02/masterpiece-123.html blog entries; but, again, like this one was, blog entries http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/02/masterpiece-1154.html and http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/02/masterpiece-1155.html aren’t currently listed, when names/words from their posted entries are tried in the “Search” box.

      Just letting you know in case you used a different template, or whatever in posting this, #1154, and #1155, than you did in the others.

      I find it totally baffling that, unless you made modifications to this, with time it started to work, but there was no delay with the next few, and now there is a delay with, so far, two others. If blogspot.com has an explanation, I’d like to know what it is.

    5. Again, like this, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/02/masterpiece-1154.html, and http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/02/masterpiece-1155.html, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/02/masterpiece-1158.html isn’tcurrently listed, when names/words from its posted entry are tried in the “Search” box.

      #1154 showed up two days after it was posted, and, like this, #1155 took several days to be completely visible to the “Search” box.

      http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com/2015/02/masterpiece-1157.html is by the same artist as #1158, and it was visible to the “Search” box, if not immediately, within a day after being posted (when I first looked for it).

      I don't know if the posting day of the week has anything to do with this; but, this, #1154, and #1158, were all posted on a Tuesday.

      I only started using the “Search” box recently; so, if that is significant, it may have been happening all along.

      Maybe if you post something today, its “Search” box behavior will be the same as #1155 (last Wednesday).

      Again, if blogspot.com has an explanation, I’d like to know what it is.

      I wish I could contact you, about such technical issues, via e-mail.
