Things seem to be stabilizing with Go Daddy and readers are reporting that the blog is loading faster and they are not getting any more error messages. Hopefully they have finally got things resolved on their end. If the blog stays up through the rest of the day I’ll publish a new full blog post about midnight local time, as usual.

After being offline more than we were on the last few days, Go Daddy seems to have fixed the problem on their server and our blogs and websites are back. We appreciate your patience. Believe me, this has been more frustrating for us than you, and we are hoping things are are back on track.

The weatherman was predicting thunderstorms, some potentially severe, for us yesterday. But the storm came and went before we even got out of bed. It rained off and on all night long, sometimes pretty hard, but by the time we were up and dressed it was just overcast with a few scattered sprinkles during the [...]

In the past I’ve published several blogs about hanging up the keys and getting off the road, and talked about where we would settle down.

Before we left this area Terry wanted to make another trip to The Weaver’s Loft, her favorite fiber store in the country, which is in Guilford, only 10 or so miles away from the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails Preserve.

I belong to a small online author’s group and have been fortunate in that our mobile lifestyle has allowed us to meet several of them in person as we’ve traveled around the country. Yesterday we drove into Cincinnati to have lunch with Carol Ann Newsome, author of the Dog Park mystery series. What a delightful [...]

I had hoped to get some work done on my book yesterday but it seemed like the rest of the world didn’t want that to happen. To be honest, it started off slow because I didn’t sleep well the night before and got up even later than usual for me. I had a huge backlog [...]

After being pretty much glued to my keyboard the last few days I needed a break so yesterday we drove back into Cincinnati for a visit to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, which is located downtown on the riverfront, just steps from Paul Brown Stadium, home to the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Great American [...]
