This blog is the last online outpost for me. I've deleted or cancelled other journals, blogs, etc. I have closed comments due to the very personal nature of some of my posts. I also play poorly with trolls. IF it is absolutely needful to contact me? You may write to me at syrbal6 at gmail dot com. I may or may not answer.
