The Management Regrets To Announce...

The Management of this little confection deeply regrets to announce the passing of Captain Sir Thomas Moore, late of the Duke of Wellington's Regiment. More details may be found at www.bbc.com, and other news outlets. This will be a run-on paragraph, sorry to say; I have been away too long, due to some very bad news over the past few months. The conversations still go on at my forum, though.

Still Here! Still Carrying On, Too!

Well, the ship of state is still afloat. I slipped up, and haven't posted for a while; I have gotten a message from Google that if I don't use my Google account they will be closing it, so I plan on posting here once a week. It's kind of a placeholder, to keep the account open and save the photos I have on file. I still cannot use the new format well - I do not have a smart phone - so my usual longer essays are over on my Proboards forum: www.chirinebakal.proboards.com (I don't get line returns here, for example.) I just posted an essay about turning 64, and how it's impinged on my gaming. Have a look, and see what you think...

We are still here... An Update

We are, as the title says, still here. Janet's doing better - her sore throat is almost gone, and she has yet to show any other symptoms. My cold is in the wane, and I have tested negative for Covid-19. However, both my daughter and son-in-law in Zurich are sick and have tested positive for the virus. They have fevers, but are holding their own. I am still in isolation until next week. More news, when and if I get some...

Cancer, Covid, And Us

As you can see, we're still having issues with the new 'smart-phone' format. We'll deal with it.The news: Janet passed her annual cancer screening; she's still clear. However: She's tested positive for Covid-19. She's feeling pretty good, and we'll fight this. My own health is good, after a big change in my medications. More about all this over on the4 Proboards forum...

More Losses Of Functionality

Google has informed me that neither of the browsers on the MacBook will work anymore onBlogger, so in what little there may be left in the future here I'll be using the Windows 10 machine and Microsoft Edge. I cannot post comments on other blogs, however, until I switch over to Google Chrome, their proprietary browser. In the meantime, I suggest following our adventures over on my Proboards forum: www.chirinebakal.proboards.com
