Howdy folks, I'm not sure what the deal is, but the formatting on this blog is not keeping with what I've done when writing the posts. It seems like things are divided and seperated when writing the posts, but when I publish them, there are no returns and everything is just one big run-on paragraph. Sorry about that. If you can help out, email me. firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for understanding.
