I apologize to my readers for all the confusion with the deleted blog. I was unable to retrieve my original blog, but the URL, or blog web address, became available again after the blog had been gone for a couple of weeks. So, I decided to reclaim it and here I am, starting over again.
I promise to be more careful from now on about deleting inactive email accounts and whatnot. But, after all, it's a learning process, especially for those of us who are technologically challenged!
Welcome to my new and improved blog. I hope you'll come back often!
