A Pitiful 2016

Filed under: Uncategorized — Janice @ 11:10 am

There’s been a lot said about 2016 and the “horrible” things that happened during the year and the many artists and celebrities and loved Americans that passed away. I can add to the horribleness by pointing out my measly 2 posts on my own blog over 365 days (oh, wait 366… this was a leap year). I make a New Year’s Resolution to do better in 2017. So this is one. I only have to produce two more posts to meet that goal.  It sounds easy enough, but we’ll see what I come up with.

I have gone back this week and re-read some of my entries from the Delbert McClinton Sandy Beaches Cruise in 2009. I am going to leave this Friday on that same cruise, but under different circumstances. No husband playing in a band this time, I’m going with a girlfriend who is graciously taking me along as her companion since her husband couldn’t go.

As I was looking up those old posts I discovered how difficult it is to FIND old posts. I can’t seem to find a way to look up a certain date or see the titles of a lot of posts at once. Have you figured that out? That makes me think that maybe 2017 is the time for a new WordPress theme to make them all appear in a more orderly fashion. If that is possible…   I’m not sure how easily I can move from one format to another. I know there are still many old posts that don’t have the photos they started with or have lots of odd punctuation because I switched hosts some years ago. I don’t know if I’ll ever get around to fixing those glitches, so let’s not go so far as making crazy promises like that, but I’m looking into a new theme. Be forewarned. I’ve gotten used to this soft peaceful green. I won’t get crazy, trust me.

Happy 2017!

  1. Janice, I am working on a Sneed record of descendants, my grandmother was born SNEED, in Oklahoma, and her father was born in Vigo, Indiana. Thank you for trying to preserve an important part of history. The civil war was a bloody indescribable experience for families across America, my great-grandfather lost 4 brother’s and his twin lived but I am sure suffered PTSD. Keep up the great work!! If you type in LadyHawke and Find A Grave you might find some of the pictures I have posted from the 1800’s. These are from Kentucky though— HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017!!! May you prosper and succeed in the endeavor to save the old mansion. Blessings to you and yours!
