Welcome to our new blog on WordPress! We are delighted that you have joined us! We have relocated our blog at MobileMe to our new blog on WordPress. We are sad that Apple discontinued the MobileMe service, because we really enjoyed the simplicity of use and the fact that everything “just worked”. However, we are delighted with our new home and hope that you will enjoy the new look and feel too! We will be making adjustments to our site over the next few days, so don’t be surprised if the look changes as we explore all the options.
