It feels like it has been forever and a day -- but I'm BACK!! My, how I've missed you!
Six weeks ago my blog was disabled by Blogger because an automated "bot" picked up some "spam-like characteristics" on my blog (I'm still not exactly sure what that means -- but whatever it is, I must figure it out so that it doesn't happen again). Since then I've been going through the restoration process to have a human look at my blog to confirm that it's legit, and then restore it. It was definitely a lesson in patience, as there are no humans to actually talk to -- you just need to complete some online forms, post your blog site on a message board, then wait....and wait...and wait for your turn to be reviewed.
You cannot imagine my delight when I logged on to my computer this morning and found this great gift from Blogger -- my blog is back in action!
So friends -- grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and join me 'Round the Kitchen Table -- we have lots to catch up on. It might take me a moment to collect my thoughts and pull my overjoyed self together -- so in the meantime, please, tell me how you've been!
