TypePad needs me to pay $135.00 for another year of blogging, and I just don't have it. If you are able and would like to contribute, there is a PayPal button in the lefthand column, where it says "Send Money" to BtB.
If I can't raise the funds rather quickly, my currently-suspended account will be closed. As I understand it, the "next time" I try to sign in, I won't be able to access the blog, so in the meantime I'm trying to keep it going... by not signing out.
If I could afford it, I wouldn't trouble you, but as things stand we are on hold and will have to see what happens. In the event that I don't get to say good-bye, en davar.
