Figured out why functionality was so limited when accessing email and blog through my laptop...was running an old (i.e., ancient) version of Internet Explorer. Downloaded 6.0, the latest version usable for Windows 98, and we're fully up and running! I love when problems are solved so easily!
To test my wireless photo-posting capability, I'll try uploading a couple shots I took recently. I've been growing quite sentimental about leaving behind everything that is So Cal, from the beautiful desertscapes,
to the archetypal palm trees,
to the gorgeous ocean sunsets (those black specks are birds!).
