The Kindness of Strangers.........
Thank you so to everyone, especially to Little Augury, who have offered such kind words on the loss of my blog. I have no idea what I did or didn't do, and shudder to think if this happened to a long-standing blog, and all that would be lost.
The general encouragement seems to be that all things happen for a specific reason.
The general lesson learned is.....beware of pressing buttons.
