Update on the website thingy: Still in progress, still frustrating, but the help desk people at the new host are working with me to try to make it all better. My actual website - - works fine. If that had been all I was transferring to a new host, it would’ve been over and […]

Someone Please Pass the Strapping Tape

The Good News: I got the notice that my domain has been successfully transferred from one host to another.
The Bad News: That - sadly! - does not mean that my fairy godmother waved a magic wand, said a few “abracanoodles” and “bibbitybobbitybumpkins” and transferred my website and blog(s) in one whole and perfect piece to […]

Random Items from the Junk Drawer of my Mind #59

1. I’ve decided to try switching my website (and yes, that includes this blog) to a new host. Hopefully - if all goes well- it will be a lovely, smooth, and seamless transition and you’ll never even notice a difference. But if by some chance my blog disappears for a few hours (or - heaven […]

This is your basic finish-the-sentence sort of dealio. If you like it, feel free to steal it. I did. […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Scattergories

I went to Lexington yesterday and all in all it was a pretty good day.
Missions accomplished:
1. Take care of some business at the bank - check!
2. Find a particular brand of jigsaw puzzle featuring a photo we haven’t solved yet - check! Well, check-ish. I’d hoped to find 2 or 3 and only found one, […]
