A year ago I switched to a different platform for this website. Of course this was fraught with problems, tears, surprises, and outbursts, mostly from people I asked for advice. The downside was that all images on every post are now being pulled from another server as code. Hence the loss of all SEO value. We're working through these one by one and recreating each post with actual images. 

At times, however, the change won't work and the post is recreated. These will show as new posts not because I am trying to pass off old content as new programming, but because that's life. When you find a repeat post, please simply pretend it's a rerun of Fantasy Island or Charlie's Angels. You can enjoy it all over again.

Thank you from the settlers at the burning cabin.
