Why is my initial comment in the Blog Archive to your left? I may have to bow out before I even begin if this is how I am going to participate.
Beth, you are doing just fine. You simply demonstrated how to start a new topic of conversation (or "thread"). Obviously you were as tired of Tim and Elaine's incoherent back and forth as I was. All new topics come up to the left under archives - it is kind of like a table of contents for the blog.
Beth, welcome, you did it!I thought we could use this space to share stories, articles, forwarded bits of information, advice you might want on a certain topic, websites you think people would enjoy...or -- to talk about the current atrocity of inaugural spending, any thoughts on that?
Apparently I am doing something wrong as the comments I have made (just to see if I have included myself in the blogo) appear in other areas of the blog rather than in the conversation that is flowing.
I think I got it now...quite a process.Now it should be clear to you why there is a turtle on my profile.
Although I am encouraged by your comments, Tim and Noelle,I am concerned that I am the only one with a garbage can(or a laundry detergent cap) next to the date and time of my comment. Is the blogo trying to tell me something? I must solve these mundane curiosities before I can take part in trying to solve world problems.
