So gang many many thanks. And I especially appreciate those of you who have expressed your feelings with "Likes" and comments (both negative and positive). Thank heavens 99.99% of your comments have been positive.
I first launched this blog just over 2 years ago. I named it MUSTARD SANDWICHES and I owe my blog inspiration to 4 people: Bill LaVallee (Read the blog Forward), Peggy Sweeney McDonald (Read the MUSTARD SANDWICHES story), Raymond Cothern and Carol Spruell. The latter 2, Raymond and Carol, provided the "How to" information and the "push" I needed.
Two years prior to this blog launch I was posting my stories directly on Facebook. The only drawback with FB posting was that there was no rich text formatting. Being able to choose font sizing, italics, bold face and underscoring gives the stories more color, depth and readability.
And after 2 years of blogging I am still a neophyte. I've not figured out yet how to enable viewers to make comments with each post or why "My blogs" would lend strength to the process. Or why Google+ would be of value. I guess I'm just impatient. Maybe I'll discover value as I go along.
In any event I have discovered value in knowing I have a significant number of MUSTARD SANDWICHES followers to whom I owe a huge debt of gratitude.
