Well, This is Embarrassing!
I have been moving my sites to a new hosting company so that I can have better control going forward.
I consider myself to be fairly technically competent however…during the transition I seem to have lost a lot of stuff. Actually, all my posts are now irretrievable due to some sort of file corruption that must have happened during the transfer.
The upshot of all this is that I now have to build up the site from scratch again. So I hope you will bear with me while I get back up and running again.
All of the comments that you nice people left have unfortunately also been lost. But I hope you will continue to leave comments again going forward.
In the meantime, thanks for your patience and I hope to be back to (almost) normal soon!
