I meant to post this earlier, but my blog was shut down by Blogger for 24 hours. For some reason, they thought it was a spam blog. How could they think that? We have no spam here, indeed no meat products whatsoever! We much prefer fruits and vegetables, of which you will find plenty at Lock 3 on Saturdays:

Thanks for mentioning the shutdown. I got the lockdown notice last night and have been blogless since.

I might allow a chili-rubbed and perfectly seared DelMonico steak on my blog, but certainly not spam.

Apparently a whole lot of Blogspot people have been in lockdown mode the past day or so. Fervantly wishing for Blog Liberation for all -- ASAP!
