As I said, several years ago--I was young enough to wear one of those dangerously short skirts. This was before most cars had air conditioning so the window was down, and.... Yep, a bee flew in. You'll never in a million years guess where it decided to land!
Right on the inside of my thigh! I had no idea I was allergic to bees. So I didn't panic, tho it was very hard to concentrate on driving. Finally was able to pull over and get rid of the bee, but not before it got me.
I continued on to the hospital and was visiting when my leg started swelling, and a bright red streak started running down my leg. A nurse saw it, and I ended up in the ER.
A collector of rare books ran into an old friend who told him he had just thrown away an old Bible that he found in a dusty, old box. He happened to mention that Guten-somebody-or-other had printed it.
"Not Gutenberg?" gasped the collector.
"Yes, that was it!"
"Do you know what you have done? You've thrown away one of the first books ever printed. A copy recently sold at auction for half a million dollars!"
"Oh, I don't think this book would have been worth anywhere close to that," replied his friend. "It was scribbled all over in the margins by some guy named Martin Luther."

But a couple of fellow members who had the tech chops brought it back, and it's good as new. I say if the person(s) who run a thread or site can no longer do it, then there's no shame in asking for help to keep it going. Pass the torch along, as it were. I check in here along with a few other threads on these boards, and have reply notifications for this thread.
Have you considered looking to see if your computer came with voice command--where you speak into a microphone and it writes what you say? Voice recognition, that's what I meant. If not, you might consider Dragon Naturally Speaking. My netbook came with voice recognition, and someday I might actually use it! Again, if you need help, use what's available to keep you writing and communicating with everybody. BTW I don't use Facebook--I'm too concerned about security issues.
LOVE that story, Don. Like Edy, I didn't know boys were interested in those kinds of things. We had bushes dividing our yard from the neighbors and there was a big hole in them; large enough for me to sit in. I used to take coloring books and paper dolls out there and play for hours, pretending *I* was a fairy and lived there.
Don and Edy, fairies under flowers and violets? How about under cabbage leaves?...
...This reminds me a little of our pastor. He often says if there is even just one person he thinks might want to come and hear a message, he's going to preach it. I hope The Porch is like that. As long as there is one person who wants to come here, I hope it is left open....
