Blog Hiatus


“It is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”  ~Mahatma Gandhi 




Due to an ongoing shoulder strain, I am unable to do much typing or work on the computer, including reading and commenting on other blogs.  So I will reluctantly not be blogging for at least the month of August.


Once my shoulder heals, I will be back blogging and visiting blogs to leave comments.

    You will be missed, but we will be here when you return.
