Only 1 post this week on this group makes for a lonely site. However, I'll
contact the isp and see what's going on. I know I had a lot of spam over
the weekend, and that might be part of the problem.
Me, too...probably due in part to all the storms around the country and

Thanks for reminding me again about it.
I'm in Seattle. I keep a basket of embroidery by my end of the couch. I do a
lot of dishtowels and pillow cases for gifts. The main problem is, people
