I’m writing this post right now in Notepad. Ahem. The server for my site is down, baby, down. Yes, I know it’s April Fools’ Day, aka All Fools’ Day, but this is no joke, no prank…at least, not perpetrated by me.
The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year. — Mark Twain
You’ve got some serious Twain ‘tude happening there, MT.
“The first of April, some do say,
Is set apart for All Fools’ Day.
But why the people call it so,
Nor I, nor they themselves do know.
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment.” — Poor Robin’s Almanac, 1790
Now, that’s more like it.
We’re sprouting link love on the blog today. No foolin’!

Note: It took all day to suss out why I couldn’t connect with my site. Of course, no one else could either. Problem solved.
