I have been so out of touch. It was a week before I could get to a WiFi location and then when I opened up my laptop it was completely black. The lights would come on but nothing on the monitor. So I found a Best Buy and they checked it and said it was the motherboard. It costs too much to make repairs and the computer was about 7 years old so I just bought a new one. And so here I am.
I will try to be in touch. I miss all my Internet friends, I miss my blog, and I miss my home. But I will be home in a couple of weeks.
Take care, one and all.
