Well, here we are.

Blogger has provided a new home for my site. I have to say, I miss Pitas' familiar purple interface, but it got to the point where I needed site features that would actually work--apparently, functional websites are the future. I am still tinkering with this one. It's orange, though, so that's a start.

I hosted my website on pitas for 7 years. Isn't that nuts? In internet terms, that's forever. We will see what the future holds. Please let me know if there are things that are not working on your system or browser. Also, the comments work!

By the way, the name "legal despoiler" comes from a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude:

"...but in any case she had the right to expect a little more consideration from her husband because, for better or for worse, he was her consecrated spouse, her helpmate, her legal despoiler, who took upon himself of his own free and sovereign will the grave responsibility of taking her away from her paternal home, where she never wanted for or suffered from anything..."
I cannot reproduce the whole sentence in which this phrase appears because it is about half a page long. And I am only one woman!

Terrific! Now I can leave comments again. Something was fouling up in the comments on the old site when I tried to use them in Mac Firefox or in Safari... I even tried e-mailing you to tell you about it and that didn't work either... it was like the internet was keeping us apart. What the internet has put asunder, let no man join together.
