First of all, I feel the need to apologize for my not being faithful to my blogging schedule this week. My computer wouldn't allow me to access it. It seems an update corrupted two of my machine's basic files. It couldn't be helped. Our son called and wanted to e-mail me something and I had to remind him I was out of commission.
