I had a comment from a blogger friend down in Oz (Australia) this week noting that it was summer down there and the citizens were preparing to roast through another hot summer. Well, Meggie, maybe you should come up to this side of the equator where folks are enjoying a warm, balmy winter.
By the way, some of you may have tried to reach Oddball Observations last night only to be told the blog had been removed. And for several hours it was. I still have had no explanation but early in the evening, as I was trying to send an email to a friend, my Google account was suddenly suspended. OO disappeared, as did my Gmail program. I was forced to rely on a long dormant Yahoo account to send and receive mail. It was pretty depressing when I turned out the lights but sometime early in the morning, Google responded to my pleas. My pal Tom sent me an email at 1:30 in the morning saying he had just accessed Oddball again and allowed that apparently the overlords at Google had allowed me back on the grid. So here I am, not as I feared forced to rebuild everything from scratch on some other platform. Just the same as before, writing somewhat tepid blog posts. Glad to be back.
Now, let's kick it up a notch.
