The old version of Blogger is slowly being ended. Some old blog accounts are being forced to switch despite the owners fear of and resistance to change. How Google determines when to target a group of blogs to switch I do not know.
This is a team blog. Several people can create posts and access the contol panel. That makes the switch different. The most important being "A team blog will only switch to the new version of Blogger when the original owner moves his or her account over."
The original owner is at least Marilynn M and may also be her grandaughter Karen and whoever Kevin Langdon is if they set it up that way at the start.
There may come a time soon when this blog is forced to switch and that could mess things up in unknown ways if it isn't done. We could get shut out.
This is just a heads up in advance. A whole new blog can be started as one option. I can attempt to eliminate the other team members. Or it may be time to say Aloha?
A Dear Bread Crusts letter for your Valentines Day. Thoughts.
Happy Holidays Everyone
I haven't been commenting lately. I think I may have political fatigue and nothing seems to want to go from my brain through my fingers to the keyboard. I have been staying very current on reading the threads.
I think the PNW has taken all the Express out of our Pineapple because we haven't had any rain since the first storm of the season. Nice and cool here now which I am loving. I am considering closing my windows at night to stay warm.
I hope you all, your families and loved ones have a Joyous Holiday Season.
Be prepared for the New Year and a New Congress.
May Love and Reason enter the halls of power in Washington DC once again for the benefit of all who share this planet.

Zephyranthes rosea ready to bloom in the morning.
Debbie has asked Cheryl and I to take over the maintenance of the Bread Crusts blog. I said ok. Hello Cheryl are you in for this too? We do not want to slow Debbie from helping change the course of politics in North Carolina and eventually the nation. Whatever I can do to help. Marilynn and her grandaughter Karen no longer seem to be with us. Hopefully Marilynn will return one day.
Currently I am only allowed to post new threads. I would like access to the control panel then I can make other changes if needed or wanted. If anyone has a wish or suggestion for change feel free to say so. Many may be dependent on the control panel. My first thought was adding links on the side bar to some of the progressive and news sites for our convenience.

I'm in the italics.
Dear PurpleOcean.org member,
Have you been to SinceSlicedBread.com lately? SEIU's search for new ideas to improve the lives of everyday working Americans has been pretty phenomenal, receiving attention everwhere from CNN to Newsday to Parade Magazine. What started as a contest really has become a national conversation with more than 22,000 ideas submitted, including many from PurpleOcean.org members.
Yesterday SEIU announced the 21 finalists -- innovative ideas that address healthcare, education, retirement, minimum wage, taxes, energy, home ownership, civil service and many other bread-and-butter issues for ALL of us -- and the American people are voting on the very best ideas SinceSlicedBread. Read the 21 finalist ideas, and cast your ballot for three of them now:
They were old crappy ideas that didn't adhere to the criteria or rules of the contest. Many had been posted earlier by other contestants. This was a farce. I'm not voting in protest. It would add relevance to a fraud. Many of us put a lot of effort into this and to have it end with 21 lame already been done ideas is an insult.
We at SEIU have always had faith in ordinary Americans having the best ideas. Most Americans wish there were a place for civil discourse in today's polarized world. I am so proud that SinceSlicedBread.com has helped fill that need.
The discourse is no longer civil. People are angry. You should be ashamed.
Here's how voting works: When you visit SinceSlicedBread.com, you can cast your ballot for three ideas. Round One voting will continue until Sunday January 15 at 11.59 pm EST. At that point, fourteen ideas will be eliminated, leaving the top seven vote getters to compete in Round Two for the cash prizes.
I'm curious who's Brother-in Law is going to win?
As a member of PurpleOcean.org, you're already working to improve the lives of working Americans. Let's all join the national dialogue by voting today at SinceSlicedBread.com and helping find the best new ideas since sliced bread.
You can kiss my fanny. I have been pro union all my life. I'm embarrassed by what you have either done or allowed to be done. This travesty is a black eye on the face of labor.
Thanks for participating!
Andy Stern, SEIU President
