I think I have, at least, a temporary problem solved. Linked from this blog will be a protected entry blog where I will post as I once did in LJ. To gain entry, you have to mail me your e-mail address (that will be your pass key).
So...if you want to be in this first group--- please e-mail me (you can find it linked from the profile page) and in the subject line write: PicPossums. Then, you will have to prove who you are and how you know us. If you don't get straight in approval, it may mean that I need to have my husband come in and help me figure out if we can add you. I suspect it won't happen to frequently. Thanks!
