Weekend update: Other things found this week:
Yesterday's update was ready to post when a lightning strike knocked out our electricity for most of the afternoon. And this morning when I try connecting I get no dial tone, even though the phone line is working, and the PC diagnostics don't seem to detect any problem in the modem. Luckily the laptop still works so that will have to be the substitute for now. I was counting on this desktop doing the job for me a little while longer, but now will have to think about alternatives. Bummer.
Blogging has been slow this week and will continue so for awhile as everything else is fast happening in my life and big changes occuring. So this list is a bit shorter, but there's much more to come.
