BLOG POSTING LIST



BLOG POSTINGS

Hopefully this list of Blog Postings will help sort out the 300+ or so entries (if I copied correctly).  I simply cannot understand the many vagaries of Blogger so have resorted to this list.  At one time the postings appeared as a list in the Blog Archives; however, that list sort of disappeared from easy viewing.  In this listing I have added the months and years so readers should be able to move to the listings in the Blog Archives on the right and locate the appropriate posting by clicking the arrow > on the left side of the entry.  Sorry, that is the best that my current skills will allow.  As usual, I appreciate readers taking a peak at the postings.  The BLOG is not advertised but somehow 339,000 people have found it.  That number continues to grow and boggles my mind. Life is good.  csrockboy at yahoo dot com with questions.
