I ended up moving most of my stuff to Facebook. Facebook is great for things like keeping in touch with Auntie Sue (who lives in France).
Doing this I ignored the fact that Livejournal is also great for other things. So I’m back. And I’ll try to drop in at least once per week.
Meantime, we have a wild thunderstorm, so I’m going to shut down, before we get another lightning strike.
