It has been an eventful week!
I had a hard drive failure last Tuesday so I've most been 'lurking' online ... autocorrect just makes me want to throw the tablet and/or phone out the window. To save my technology, I thought it was better t... Read more

I've been here a LOOOOONG time. Sometimes I'm 100% committed - sometimes, not so much. I've climbed 'back on the wagon' so many times you'd think my arms would be in great shape! When I 'catch' myself slipping, of course, I want to get back o... Read more
