THE BLOG IS BACK (now with more ice cream)

Some ice cream

So, I wondered what I should be doing now that I'm not sciencing* so hard all the day long. Well, I will be catching up with friends and family. And doing stuff. I have missed blogging, so you'll hear about the stupid stuff I do.

As you can see from the photo, a visit to my cousin's house last night resulted in a major ice cream event. I think we tried every possible flavor that you can find after driving around past 10 PM in the Taunton area. We ended up at a Stop & Shop. And they carry gelato, among other things.

Flavors tried: Ciao Bella malted milk ball gelato, Ciao Bella pistachio gelato, Ben and Jerry's key lime pie limited batch, Ciao Bella key lime pie and graham gelato, Ciao Bella mango sorbet, Ciao Bella blood orange sorbet, some other Ben & Jerry I can't remember, Haagen Dazs 5 lemon and Haagen Dazs 5 ginger.

The deal with Haagen Dazs 5 is that it just has 5 ingredients: milk, cream, sugar, eggs and... whatever the flavor is. In this case, ginger or lemon.

Best of the bunch? IMHO, easily, the Haagen Dazs 5 lemon. It was not too sweet, tart and creamy. It tasted more like real key lime pie (IMHO) than either of the actual key lime pie flavors.

So, the blog is back, and it's already working for you. Try the lemon ice cream.

In other news, I don't know how much longer I want to maintain this blog anymore. The software is ancient. The commenting system stinks. I hate working on websites, so I don't want to fix it. I'd rather just dump it and get a whole new one. But I don't want to lose what is already here. I'm not sure yet what I will do. But whatever it is, I want to keep having a personal blog, and keep the current content here available. It's quite possible I'll just complain a lot and do nothing because, honestly, blogging for me is not about tweaking CSS. It's about life, opinions and writing.

Onward!

(* Spell checker sez I made this word up, but you know what I mean. it also doesn't recognize the word "gelato," so what does it know?)

I don't know anything about it, but I have heard of people who've managed to migrate their old blogs over to a new host, like Word Press or Typepad. Worth a look-see?

Many blogging platforms have importing tools. I am sure you can recover your archives.
