At the moment, it may not look like it, but I’m getting ready to leave for Normandy for two weeks.

There was a small systems error. Please try refreshing the page and if the error is still there drop us a note and let us know.
Freaky! Half my post had been eaten and now that! I had to reconstitute more than half of it.
Now, I must say that it’s the first time I have experienced this with WordPress.com, my host since June, and it’s really been fixed very fast.
But I often think that instead of writing on-line, we should write off-line and then put the result on-line.

I have been using it for about a month, and that’s where I start writing now.
Still, I should follow my own advice and save both my blogs. I will definitely do this tonight.
Are you saving yours?
