Special Announcement

I have decided to close down this website. If you’re interested to know why, here’s the explanation…

When I put this site up in 2012, it took many, many long hours of configuration to get it the way I wanted it. That meant writing what they call a “theme” for it that would put this over here, that over there, the comments down there, etc. That’s the general look of the pages. Over the years though, the software that runs this site — WordPress — has been updated continuously and the most recent update doesn’t seem to work right with my 2012 template.

Suddenly, the comments — which are the whole point of this site — didn’t show. They were there but they didn’t show up on the pages you see. Some fine technicians and I spent a lot of time trying to solve this and we got it to the point where it would show comments up to the end of 2019 and it stopped there. I couldn’t get anything newer than that to display unless I rewrote the whole template/theme…and frankly, I don’t have the time to do that. Even if I did, I don’t remember all that I knew about doing that in 2012 and I’m also pretty sure that the technology has changed a lot since then.

So I’ve decided to give it up.

Please do not attempt to post any comments here. No one will see them. The site in its broken condition will remain online for a while and I will be transferring the articles I wrote about various old restaurants to my main website, www.newsfromme.com. Around the end of 2020, this page will go away completely.

I want to thank everyone who contributed over the years and I hope you enjoyed reading all the comments as much as I did.
