In 2003 I created LikeTheQueen, and for the first 5 years I made almost daily posts to it. In those days I had no digital camera and only a flatbed scanner so I tried to paint word pictures for people to see what was happening in the Life-0-Bess at TheCastle. You have read with me through my AdventuresInSpinning, A Trip to England, the early years of the Knitters Review Retreat, Maryland Sheep and Wool, and a host of other fiberish travels. You've know how I met BD, you've seen pictures of LD, you've been with me through weddings and funerals and you all know about the Wheat Dolphins.
By the time Blogger moved to the New Blogger, LikeTheQueen was so big it wouldn't transfer to the new format. And this newer, supposedly easier to use format turned out to be NotSoEasy for me. I've fiddled with it on and off for the past year and haven't yet figured out if I like it or not. But lately some faithful readers have complained that the old blog triggers a virus warning when they log on. The e-mail account I used to start that blog was compromised many times and I finally abandoned it for a @gmail address. I believe it is time, now, to lay LikeTheQueen mach 1 aside for LikeTheQueen 2. I believe, my friends, that it is time for a cool change.
