Hi Cindy! I kept coming to visit here to see if you are over here now. I wrote a comment to the Editor over at the place that used to be Blogster, and they banned my IP address. Chris was able to go in thru his blog and get our blogs and Cold Onion's. He also tried to get me in to see my blog, finally I got in but only after he had to use Proxyserver. Go visit him, he still goes by Lostinthetriangle. I don't care if they let me in the door again I am all done. That place just isn't the same ole'Blogster I knew and loved...come say hi to me sometimes, glad the old gang is slowly getting together here...Now you remember me I was never gonna leave Blogster, but it is like communisism over there. If you need help getting your blog out from there, ask Chris to help you. He said anyone wants that kind of help, he is happy to do it....
