What this is

I started a blog as Notes on Facebook, then moved to my old Mindspring page, but had to stop because I ran out of room.  Later, I moved it to my GDrive page, but updates were really difficult. So now, I'm trying Blogger.  We will see if I can get it to work. 

Originally, the blog was to document the acquisition of my 2 cats from my downstairs neighbor (and the trauma that involved). But, now I want to add more: about cats, science, Jeeps, and other topics where I want to do longer posts than FB will allow.  And now, you can add comments. 

Rant: 
Blogger is NOT user friendly, and has no way pin a post to the top.  Stupid.  Even more stupid, no shortcut links to the Archive, top of bottom.  Sorry.  This post has to stay dated in the future to stay at the top.  All the other dates in the Archive are the post dates.  Not the original dates.  Sorry. 
Rant over.

UPDATE
The website is back up.  Try www.ellenjeep.com.  Yep, my very own domain name.

Ok, finally broke down and did it.  I purchased a domain name of my own, and can now post on my own webspace.  And email addresses.  Forever. 

www.ellenjeep.com

Simple, since I've been using it as an email address for years. 

So, the website it back up, please visit if you wish.  I can now add to it to my heart's desire.  And, technically use it for cloud storage, but I'm happy with my current clouds.  If they change, maybe I'll look into it then.  

Not a bad price:  $170 for 3 years.  Pretty much unlimited.  Great technical service.  Decent interface.
