You might have noticed that I've just about given up on blogging. Between a painfully slow dial-up connection and the perverse nature of Blogger itself (i.e. eating pictures!) I am approaching my upper limit of tolerance. I haven't even been able to respond to comments -- that drives me absolutely crazy. I value those of you who read this blog and I really appreciate your comments. So please, don't think I am ignoring you!
Perhaps a new computer is in order or perhaps a change in service providers would help...we'll see. Meanwhile I'll try to post when I can.
