Unfortunately, on the heels of my promises to continue blogging, I experienced major computer-related difficulties and literally had no computer access for several weeks. This directly interfered with my plan to commence the new series of posts I had outlined previously.
I sincerely apologize to those who were awaiting the new posts for what must have been a very frustrating experience.
And I appreciate the patience and support of the readers who granted me the benefit of the doubt and refrained from leaving sarcastic comments during my absence.
With the welcome return of my computer access, I am finally in a position to go about the business of writing those posts!
