This mobile blogging is a pain… I need to get used to it each time and figure out how to do it more efficiently. I had a silly auto correction to the title of the last post that I couldn’t get corrected because WiFi was slow (or whatever: it wouldn’t upload with all the heavy photos). I have finally fixed it and added a few more photos that you might go back and look at now.
