Lesson learned

Well, if you noticed that the look of our blog has changed, that's because I accidentally deleted about six months of posts.  I checked on one draft to delete it and somehow a number of other posts were deleted.  Haven't figured out how to recover them so if you have any ideas, please let me know.  In the meantime, I'll just move forward and be more careful about future deletions :-)
