Test post

This is a test...and I mean to test the laptop & posting to the blog, not testing you.

 
OK...it seems I can post again, but I can't make the font bigger, different color, or bold (I did the last one on Mr. Ramo's computer.  As long as we can get pictures posted we're back in business the regular way with notes posted here on the blog.

And yes, that's Simba. :)
