For those of you coming here wondering what happened to Melanie's blog The Wine Dark Sea, we're having some technical difficulties with her web host. With blogs as old as ours, the danger is all the old legacy software that they're still running on and the web host says it's so old that it's gumming up their servers. I'm trying to figure out what to do about the problem given the constraints placed on us. I certainly don't want to abandon all her old blog posts.
Unfortunately, I had planned to move her site to WordPress this summer but never got around to it. This is precisely why I wanted to. Anyway, we thank you for your patience.
