Jennifer, my friend and computer guru, hauled me out of the quagmire I keep falling into with my computer. That includes Squarespace - I am back, I still exist, I think, therefore I am.
Tomorrow I will have lots to say. In the meantime, I'll cut and paste the blog I wrote yesterday and stashed until I could send it out.
BLOG FOR JULY 15, 2018
Shut out by Squarespace. Squarespace shut me out, but I can play around with words until if and when I get readmitted. Use the time well....

Okay, it’s a small – and maybe a repetitive-list . I’m not going to repair or augment it. The good news is, for me, anyway, I'm back. Squarespace was out of bounds, or maybe I was. Thanks to Jennifer, I'm back in my own domain.
