Update: all better now! We've left the land of the bland behind and now are seeing spots before our eyes.
Ooooops ! I don't know what the heck happened here with cutestblogontheblock thingy! Hubby installed new firewall this morning and maybe it's blocking them. All I got in the box where the logo and the blinking message was a little x , logos gone etc so some dummy, (probably a friend of Pudgy) went to see what was in the box and hit remove. Ouch, now I can't seem to get that blog site open again. Geeeez, it's not like I didn't search high and low for a black and white background that I liked! Anybody ever have trouble with them? Is it just me?? or is it hot in here.. . no, wait, that's another issue
