moving on-change of address

I am not a new technology adopter. I want my technology to work and to stay out of the way. The publishing "program" that has made the daily presentation of B&W possible is "Blogger", software launched in 1999.
Record a thought with pencil and paper, then throw your writing materials in a drawer. Twenty years later, open the drawer, the paper and pencil remain. Amend your thought. The pencil still works. The paper works. Blogger has approached pencil and paper reliability. Pencil and paper are good technology. As a user, I've never had to spend time software wrestling. Blogger worked.
On the simplest level the software has provided easy access to a space, a blank wall, a means to hang pictures. It's a blank wall in my home that appears in locations all over the world. Magic.

I've been at this Internet location for five years. At this URL, this uniform resource locator.
For business and security reasons, the good people at Blogger (owned since 2003 by Google) are changing their software in a way that will require me to move on, to leave this address.
The 1290+ posts that are accessed via this URL and presented with Google/Blogger software will remain.

Indeed, what is this bizarre means of expression that reads you as you are reading it, that is able to accumulate knowledge about the practitioner at the same time as the practitioner uses it to accumulate and record knowledge?--Emmanuel Garrigues

time machine-scode lake

He is the best physician who is the most ingenious inspirer of hope.--Coleridge
On the road to the lake, I am searching for the real lake name and lat/lon. It was in Franklin County or Henry County. This back when hauling people in the pickup was legal. Back when American kids were skinny. Oh lost!
