Wow – this is harder than I thought!

ARGH!  I had a whole entry typed up, previewed it and found some errors, changed it, saved it and published it.  Wa-La, the original draft with the errors showed up.  Wow even “cut” and “paste” aren’t working right.  I’m sure my husband would say, “Operator error.”  Oh boy, this is going to be a learning…
