To maximize the enjoyment of my Christmas season, I will usually disengage from this blog after the first week in December, looking forward to resuming the blog work in early January of the new year.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year!
October 12, 2015—FORMATTING NOTE–– In September 2015, I updated my blog format to a newer responsive theme. Since then, I have been working to optimize the appearance and functionalities of the site. If you encounter any particular difficulties or confusion, please do not hesitate to contact me with your observations. Thank you very much.
December 11, 2013—FORMATTING NOTE— In March 2013, my Web host provider performed some software and systems updates. This introduced some blog format changes going forward. These kinds of updates of course are to be expected. Unfortunately, in this particular case, based on how I had been coding my posts, I discovered it also caused all prior blog posts to drop dashes, single quotation marks, and double quotation marks. It took me a while to figure this out. For me to go back through all prior blog posts and perform the needed editing right now is simply not feasible for me. I am hoping at some time in the future to begin systematically going through all my prior posts to perform the needed editing and get everything displayed correctly. In the meantime, please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you. And rest assured, as a meticulous, borderline obsessive-compulsive person, no one is more upset about this than me.
Finally, I have made specific changes in how I am coding my blog posts to prevent this situation in the future.
