  1. Dear Joyce, I’ve never been able to read your posts all the way through.   The print size drops to super tiny and when I click to read the rest,  it doesn’t work.   Perhaps it is Word Press.  I used to subscribe to a D I D group that also used Word Press.  They disappeared.   Personally, I don’t trust Word Press. I don’t get any of your posts on my computer where the size print can be enlarged to be comfortably read.  You are the best encourager of me and my friends.  We love your stuff, but frustratingly cannot get it all.  Your Facebook page works very well.  I cannot understand why you use Word Press.  Do they charge you for their very poor service?  I hope not.  Will continue to keep you as long as I can and will keep trying to work around Word Press even on my computer.  Thank you for your very fine posts — what we can read — that is!  Very sincerely,Karen
