for those who saw an incomplete version of this earlier..my paw accidentally hit the publish button while i was editing..oops..sorry.
when the blog started it was primarily a way to continue communicating with the residents of the condo..the controllers were shutting down..through intimidation..my ability to communicate by email. the consequence is that the blog has many followers who have no association with our condo..we have been read in 17 countries to date..amazing to me as i didnt know there were that many places..i mean..i thought east nashville was a foreign country.
anyway through communication..with some of our outside followers..i realize not everyone completely understands what i am writing about. i know the about section of the blog helps..but i thought perhaps a glossary of terms and things peculiar to this blog might help some of the non-resident readers who so graciously follow this blog. so you will notice in the bar above..a new glossary page..which i will occasionally update..as necessary. so to save you the energy..we have some lazies here..the following is the..
