It's with a certain degree of frustration that I have to report that for the second time in a row, Blogger has just shredded my most recent update, reducing it to a blank page. To those of you who logged on hoping to read about The Jackpots, I apologise - I really would try and write something for you all again for the third flaming time in a row, but:
a/ I have a busy Saturday ahead where I have other things to do
b/ My love for this Swedish psych-pop band doesn't stretch as far as doing two rewrites in a row.
"But you should copy and paste the text content and save it to Word, Dave, especially when you've already had issues!"
"I'll give you 'issues' in a minute, young man..."
As the BBC used to say whenever their tapes failed, we will return to The Jackpots as soon as we possibly can. That won't be anytime today, though.
Oh yes - and all the Sharebee links seem to also be down this afternoon, and I have no idea whether this is a temporary glitch or a more permanent action - so you all know just as much about this as I do...
