Joining You All in Anger and Disbelief

I cannot believe that AOL is shutting down journals!  This is the only reason I have continued to pay.  I've only been here 4 years, but J-Land has become a home of sorts for me. 

That big-wig at the top has no idea what journals editors and my son John Scalzi have created here.  We are not just a bunch of bloggers ~ we are family. 

I have been so ill that I have not been posting as I did in the past, but I hate the idea of some top-dog nobody stealing what we have become.  I for one will not be paying for my account here after my blogs are migrated to Blogger.  This will be my e-mail for a while, but I can't stay where I've been betrayed.

Don't blame the journals editors . . . go straight to the top!  I suppose it's too late to revolt . . . the decision was made on July 25th with no notice to us until now.  It's a sneaky and underhanded thing to do.  There have been many posts on Magic Smoke, so go there to read the disgusting news. 

I love you all so much and will miss the camaraderie here in J-Land.

Blessings and prayers,  Penny

I hate this computer!  It's a lemon.  Today will be the 2nd replacement hard drive in 3 months.  I'm seriously considering a Mac as soon as I can afford it.  I won't buy a Dell laptop again.  Our desktop is a work horse.  Ugh. 

As for everything else in my life, things are okay.  The weather is beautiful, the pups are growing fast and my best love (Rob) treats me like a queen.  I have complaints . . .who doesn't?  I try to lay them at the foot of the cross.  Sometimes I grab them back ~ I suffer until I give up and turn it back over. 

Here's hoping that you all have a blessed and fruitful day.
