I shy away from changes and choices.
After ignoring the message from blogspot saying YOU NEED TO UPDATE I did the update which forced me to choose and change . This necessitated me spending a whole hour putting some stuff back and changing the layout.
There are too many choices but I preserved and what you see is what you get whether you or I like it or not.
Well now i have a search on the page, that is good.
If you don't like it I suggest you drink two glasses of wine and then read it.
