We're baaaaack!

What a week! On June 4, I got frisky and decided to publish this blog on a custom domain, keeping the SpaceCoastBeachBuzz part, but registering the domain name to protect it and eliminate .blogspot from the URL. The process seemed to be pretty straightforward, but then the blog became inaccessible through any means at all! I've been in a tizzy, trying to find out how to contact Google customer service, even going so far as to ask Robin Chapman, who lives near the Googleplex, if she had any friends that work there (she doesn't). Long story short, I finally learned that to get help on a Google Blogger issue, you post your question on a forum . I did that, and very shortly received an answer - the whole problem was that I had entered my new URL as SpaceCoastBeachBuzz, and using upper case in the URL is a known problem (maybe known by others - not by me). I followed the instructions to correct the issue, and they worked - here we are! (Since the rest of you are bloggers too, I thought my experience and the forum link might at some point be useful to you. Actually, the forum is pretty interesting, and I'm going to go back and wander around in it.)
So the new address is, but using the old URL with the .blogspot in it will work - it just gets forwarded. I tried it - it worked, too. Whew!
One of the things I didn't get to post this week was the Flat Stanley that Wayne submitted to Channel 13. For those of you not from around here, Stan Van Gundy is the coach of the Orlando Magic, and they returned to Orlando for games 3, 4, and 5 of the NBA Finals. Channel 13 came up with a Flat Stanley cartoon and encouraged viewers to print/cut out/leave around in various places. (For those of you not familiar with the real Flat Stanley books and project, follow the above link.) Since Wayne had taken some great pix of the shuttle returning via 747, he whipped up this great illustration. The Lakers currently lead the series 3-1, and Sunday night's game will determine if the Magic return to LA for games 6 and 7 or if the Lakers celebrate their victory on the Magic's home court. We certainly don't want that to happen, so GO MAGIC!
