1  Jan 2011 Icon: Add & Edit You should not see a difference, but I had to change the way form submissions are handled. After my hosting company 'upgraded' my account and moved the site to a new server, my previously used script did not work completely correctly. Apparently this cannot be fixed! Rather than trying to find, configure, and install an ASP script, I signed up with a paid service to process forms, FormtoEmail-remote. So far it looks like all forms are configured and submitting properly.

26 Aug 2010  Icon: News Last week Google AdSense advised me to make the ads at the bottom of the pages wider. I accidentally allowed image ads, too, when I made the change. Wow! Quite a difference. Sometimes the ads are from Honda, Toyota, ATT, L'Oreal, Allstate, Discover... all sorts of big-time companies. It's still not bringing in enough dollars to cover the rent, but every bit helps! Thanks to all who view and who click!
