Thanks to followers, visitors, and participants, past and present.
Last month I received notification from WordPress that it was my 8 year anniversary. My, time does fly. These past 2 years makes it seem much longer. The breast cancer treatment journey caused months to fly and at the same time, time slowed down. I suppose one has to have been or is on that journey to understand, because words are insufficient to describe how time can move slow but at the same time, move fast.
It was a year in March that I had surgery and was declared NED/NEC (no evidence of disease/ no evidence of cancer). Then there were post-surgical treatments with immunology drugs for 3 months, followed by tests, followed by physical therapy. July marked my one year anniversary since ending post-surgical treatment. I’m still receiving treatment for some of the side-effects that chemo left behind.
In 8 years, three of my best friends have died. We also lost at least one blogger to death, and several disappeared without a word. I miss them all. There are bloggers I met in 2012 who no longer blog, but are on Twitter. Read the rest of this entry
Hello friends and visitors.
The blog has undergone some re-organization. If you go to the top menu and hover over Cases/Victims, a drop-down menu appears. You can use the center wheel of your mouse to scroll down the drop-down menu. The names are in alphabetical order by first name. There are a few names not on that list. That’s because they were mentioned in an Open Discussion or other post.
There are over a hundred names. If you don’t find the name of a person on the drop-down menu but think that there is information on this blog, please use the search engine box on the right-hand border.
While going over the cases, I did some follow-up. There are so many cases where no one was charged. Rather than do separate blog posts, I’m thinking about doing one to cover a number of cases and possibly continuing that on a monthly basis.
Documents are barely visited. There are also documents that are embedded in blog posts, but not on the list on the right-side border. I’m thinking about preparing a table with links and posting it under a menu heading for “documents” on the top border, but that will take time. Once I do get that completed, the list will be removed from the right-side border. I might add my tweeter feed in that place instead.
Another Change For Comments
The other week, someone submitted a slew of debating comments to posts that were published in 2014. Some of those they commented to have retired from the internet since then. Therefore, I have changed the option so that comments cannot be submitted to posts that over a year old.
Thanks to all new and old followers. I’m still running behind in catching-up on blog posts for those blogs I follow. Please forgive me. I’m so far behind that I’m considering starting a new slate beginning with tomorrow.
Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful week.
Thanks to my dear friends for this humbling honor. I also want to take this opportunity to thank followers, visitors, and participants.
We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident has been nominated for Versatile Blogger previously, so I’m not repeating the Rules here, which are similar to the Blue Sky Tag.
I was alerted that Frederick Leatherman reported that his house was broken into, and someone obtained the access code to their router and accessed his and Crane-Station’s computers. Whomever it was changed the password to his blog and he could no longer log in.
I do not use the word “hack” because that sounds as if someone actually hacked into the server side to get into his computer. That’s difficult to do with Word Press blogs because the hacker would have to actually hack into Word Press servers then find the blog that they want to access.
What I actually think happened is that after breaking into Fred’s house, the perpetrator accessed Fred’s computer. If he was already signed into Word Press, the person was able to change the password on his blog. The most concerning thing however, is that if the person gained access to the administrative side of Leatherman’s blog, that person might have obtained the email addresses of those who submitted comments and might attempt to sign into and change the passwords on Word Press accounts.
