A few desert dwelling coyotes howling in the pre-dawn hours and aside from that all was peacefully quiet. Had we stayed where we were I'm sure we would have gone to bed and woke up with the sounds of generators hammering in our ears.

Tried 'Open Live Writer' several times today but no go. I've suspected ever since the original Live Writer went down a few years ago that sooner or later the refurbished Open Live Writer would follow suit and that time may be now at hand. If they do get it fixed I think it's only a matter of time and it will go down again and be gone forever. With that thought in mind I spent some time earlier this morning familiarizing myself with the 'Blogger' format once again. Not my favorite of course but it's my only option if I want to keep my blog going. There are a few other formats out there like 'Word Press' but I have no interest in that and I'm not into any more learning curves with all this stuff. I guess 'Blogger' it will have to be and maybe with a bit of luck I can get their clunky way of doing things figured out.
