Just after I created this blog, I posted it and voila my old blog was there. And I didn't even have to go into politics.
Unfortunately I wasted much of the rest of yesterday trying log back on so I could tell you this and using Googles totally useless help service. I'm not sure what the problem was, whether Blogger is not compatable with IE6 as somebody suggested on-line, whether my lap-top was blocking my log-in or the network I was connected to blocked it. Anyway I was able to log-in on a different computer.
I like the name of this blog better so I will keep posting here. Assuming I ever get to log on again.
