Thanks for the tech feedback, especially Alexander, who was specific as to how to fix the problem. I have applied all the suggestions. Comments are working now too. I've set it up so only 2 days' worth of posts show on the home page, for speed, so if you want to look at previous posts, click on the date on the calendar on the right. Eventually I'll figure out how to archive by date and title or maybe topic, so you can find what you want quickly. I've also thumbnailed the pics and removed some that couldn't be reduced and still be readable. If 56K folks still have trouble loading the page, let me know and I'll tweak some more.
I do this when I am not working, which is why posts get up at 5 AM or midnight, and I've been concentrating so hard on content, I failed to pay enough attention to the underpinnings. Also, I'm new to blogging.
The purpose of this blog is anti-FUD. FUD only works when people don't have true facts. I am trying to put true facts out there, so the FUD doesn't stick. If anyone sees a way to do a better job, whether it be explaining something better, including information, or fixing a tech problem, I am listening.
