I want to apologize for not posting for the past couple of weeks.
We had a catastrophic computer hardware failure involving our external hard drive and we lost all of our completed,
but not yet published recipes, photos, website forms, inventories and all other support documents for upcoming
posts! It's taking me some time to regroup and get organized again. I
should have had a backup for those files, but I was researching the best way to do it and was lulled into a
false sense of security with our expensive external hard drive. :-(
Luckily, I saved everything for the website on a separate drive,
with a backup in yet another location. So previous posts are secure. At least I did part of it
So, the bottom line is that I've had to reorganize and start to
redevelop recipes and take new photos, but I'm making great progress and should be able to start posting in a day
Our other on-going problem should also be solved soon. If you have
wondered why we have a recipe blog without a comments section, it's because we created our website using a
very good program, but one that we've discovered is incompatible with any of the comment programs. I operated
on the assumption for quite a while that it was my inexperience with the software programs and HTML language
that was the problem. However, I've had some very savvy web people try to make it work and they had no luck either.
Whew! At least it wasn't me this time!
So, I am working on transferring the entire website over to a new
platform. Busy, busy! But well worth it when it gets done. It's going to take me a little while to get it ready to
publish while I sort out how to do it, but we will get there eventually and I'm excited about the changes. We hope
you'll come along for the ride and stay with us during the process!
