I came back from vacation, a time away from my computer for which I had planned ahead by writing Gems and scheduling them through July 31. Arriving back home Monday, August 2, I discovered that the hosting program, WordPress, had problems with my Gems for Living website. But with the help of my son-in-law, we (hopefully) fixed the problem! So I am posting again, the next Gem scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, August 7.
If all things go right, I will be back to posting new Gems every Tuesday and Saturday.
God bless you.
