All Fired Up

Friggin’ changed again!

In this wonderful computer age of ours when you sort of, maybe, get something figured out ... they change it.  "They" in this case, is Wordpress, my nemisis.  Lucky for me I don't have many others, BUT trying to keep the website sorted has turned into a bit...

‘Twas the winter …
