New Posts will be on hold for a few days

Hi all, Jim here.

We are in the process of migrating our web hosting from GoDaddy to HostGator.  I will give you more information on the reasons down below if you are interested in technical minutia {grin}.

During the migration we will not be posting to our blogs.  Any posts (or comments) made during the migration will be lost (more minutia below).

The migration process will take up to 5 days.  When we make the actual changeover to the new host, there could be a short period where we will be off line.

During the migration, you will be able to use all of the functions at

What follows is technical minutia:

Nine years ago we switched our hosting to GoDaddy.  It was a great experience for many years.  However, GoDaddy has slowly migrated to a less helpful host who had chosen to charge rather high yearly costs for services that other hosts provide free of charge.

In addition, we are hosted on rather outdated servers with what could be called a legacy platform.  That platform has significant restrictions that compromise the integrity of our websites.  We must spend a significant amount of effort to convert our websites/blogs to what is called a cPanel platform.  cPanel has become the standard platform for all hosting companies.  The old legacy servers will be turned off at the end of the year.

Since I need to make all of our websites/blogs compatible with cPanel, I have made the decision to switch our hosting account to a cPanel account on HostGator.  They are highly rated and provided several services that GoDaddy no longer provides (or charges outrageous prices for).
