    I am suddenly able to reenter my NEW FB account. I am afraid to try to get into the OLD account that has all my “owner” rights for the many groups and pages I have started. It appears as if the problem may have been the VPN service that routs some login’s to servers in suspect countries ( Like Russia, Ukraine, Holland, Albania. etc.). Just watch it VPN users as FB is not the only one. I suspect my Godaddy Account blocked some Name Servers for the same reason. My website suddenly works again. Pseudo-anonymity is not without many heartaches and headaches.

  • Our RV

    After much consideration and heart rendering on my part we have decided to follow the land yacht route instead of looking for another sailboat. Thus ends the sailing chapter of our lives. Age and other considerations made my lifetime dream of sailing to the far Southern Ocean. If I ever get there it will be on someones boat as a crew member and not for extended cruising.

    Almost by accident we stumbled upon an RV that was a one owner, local and owned by a family that I had worked with and known all my life. Bonefide Pleasant Lake people at that. The saga started on or about 11/9/2017 when we took her from the owner to Auburn for weatherization and then a few days later to Elkhart for geneset repair. From there we now have her in Auburn again for a winterization valve repair, canopy repair and oil and filter change. Big bucks just like a boat. There will be more later but SAM just came in the shack and wants to talk about her meeting.
