    • Not your fault. Google messed with my blog awhile back. I wanted to keep my name but I had to do something. I dropped ‘the’. The address should read . Sorry I had no way of letting you know. I think it shows on the URL Link at top of post. At least on my view they do. Thanks for letting me know. I think I need to put in a Widget. It might be helpful to those who don’t have the correct address. Didn’t know it hadn’t transferred. Thanks again. Happy New Year 🎶❣ 🌈👋⚡ 😎🎨
