  1. Thanks for your warm comment, it brought a tear of joy to my right eye (or it could have been the bright screen on my laptop). You really started again from scratch? You should blogroll all the previous data you had, if you’ve kept it, as it would be nice to compare the contrasting styles.

    I’m still not 100% certain what I want to do with my blog just yet but I do have a few ideas. We’ll see what happens in January.

    Take care and I’ll catch up with you soon.

  2. You are funny. I’m going to say that the tear is from the online connection we have through WordPress.

    Thanks for the tips about keeping my info. I’m going to import it after I complete this message.

    Have a wonderful holiday, and let me know when you’re up and running again.
