Apologies — technical difficulties

Readers, I apologize for the lack of posts this morning. My laptop power cord decided to conk out this morning and I wrote my first post (and am writing this) on my KindleFire. Then I went out and bought a new cord which is supposedly universal, but didn’t t work. I’m going out again in search of a new laptop. I love my KindleFire but I’m afraid it’s not very good for blogging — linking and cutting/pasting are way too cumbersome. Posting will resume as soon as I can buy — or failing that, beg, borrow, or steal — a new laptop.

Yes, I’ll make a donation
