In case you haven't noticed Blogger has been down for thirty odd hours and it appears still to be come and go service. As frustrating as this is Google has said nothing about what is going on or why so one has to take things as they come.
I have lost posts and have been trying to re-write as many as I can but Blogger has more frustrating than satisfying, though things seem to be back to normal so I am resuming normal posting. I hope the recent pattern of repeatedly writing the same post and having the system reject it over and over again is now over! Expect a new essay at 5pm Eastern time.
If anything this frustration has shown me how much I am enjoying working this blog and taking the pictures and planning my essays. All my plans are in confusion and the time set aside to compose the essays has been wasted! Oh well.
I apologize of course on behalf of the half-wits at Google who have lost control of their system. Perhaps we should take this failure as a preview of the collapse that a lot of people believe is headed our way, a mixture of Peak Oil, Climate Change, Endless War, Economic Greed, and Political Corruption. A nasty mixture indeed that my modest picture taking keeps at bay from the forefront of my mind.
I look forward to everything going back to normal, at least for a while longer...And irony of ironies on Wednesday, the very day the system failed I recorded 1040 visitors to my blog the largest number ever in a single day. I wrote an essay thanking you all for your support but that effort has vanished into the ether like so much else I wrote this week. Thank you all anyway for your interest.
