My Mistake! Please Resume Normal Activity

Well, it seemed worth a try but after wrestling with trying to move blogs to the discussions I'm now thinking, not such a good idea. Sorry to have caused confusion, please revert to the old ways: blog posts in the blogs and discussions in the discussion forum.

Here is a rule though: NO tent sales in the blog. Put them in the "for sale or trade" section in discussions. Please.

Help for Houston
