Apology to You

Oh, for Pity’s sake!  I have messed up royally.  This is an apology letter. 
I am going to try to do two blog posts this week.  But before I do anything interesting, I must apologize to all.  Again, I am a Luddite at heart, which is not an excuse for doing a poor job.  But there you have it.  I have several technical issues to learn and fix, but I am trying to do so. 

I have learned a bit this week.  (Not how to fix the white space on the last post though!) In my absence and while not paying attention, Blogger has made changes in the look, feel, and application for the posts.  And I am on a learning curve.  A big one.  Please continue to bear with me. (I have sort of figured it out.  As you can see this post is okay.) 

I know that there is a strong background color of RED. I work through my postings on a PC with Microsoft Office and prepare my postings in advance.  I edit live and then hit publish.  Everything works fine for reading on the laptop.  But, I also have an iPad and it does not work with this red at all.  The whole thing bleeds over and it renders the site unreadable.  The pictures, however, can still be seen.  I don’t know how to fix it.  For all the Apple product users, I apologize profoundly.  But as soon as I learn how to do these things, I will make the change.  It is decidedly inconvenient. 

I’ll know soon enough if I can hang with this and keep giving good service. 

Also, APPARENTLY, there are comments that have been made that have to be moderated.  I did not do this before as Michelle took care of the technical and I did the writing.  But, as much as she can help me, follow-through is important.  There are about 5 years of comments.  Oh, boy, this is unacceptable.  Some are questions, how-tos, and nice compliments.  But they have not been approved in all this time so I can respond.  I will get to some of these and perhaps take care of them as blog posts as well. 

For those of you who have hung around and noticed that I popped back in you are greatly appreciated.  I will try not to disappoint. 

I appreciate the condolences.  It has been a few years.  But we all keep moving on.  As Aunt Violet from Downton Abbey says,  " All life is a series of problems which we must try and solve, first one and then the next and then the next until at last, we die."   

This is rather in your face; it is also true.  

Continue to have fun.  We are all learning all the time.

Bienvenida siempre a este bonito mundo que compartimos.
Blogger siempre anda realizando cambios y a mi personalmente hay algunos que no me gustan como se ven pero hay que investigar continuamente estos cambios y adaptarse.
Esperemos que no nos lo pongan muy difícil para poder seguir teniendo nuestras casitas virtuales.
Un saludo
