Welcome to A Bubbling Cauldron, a blog dedicated to the observations and opinions of this writer. Most of the time the subject
will be local politics and politicians - those issues and/or people affecting the lives of those of us in Costa Mesa and Newport
Beach. Occasionally, I might write about something obscure that interests me. Or, I may just launch off into some philosophical
rant if the urge moves me. I might even include comments by others from time to time.

Adios, Old Friend - We're Movin' On
7:40 am pst
Well, dear readers, this is the final posting of this blog on this particular site. No, no - I'm not hanging it up, just
changing addresses. As of today you will find A Bubbling Cauldron at the following link: http://abubblingcauldron.blogspot.com
I've also added a direct link to the new site on my Useful Links page on this site.
This site will remain active for some time. I'm unable to transfer the archives to the new site, so I'll use this one much
as you use a rented storage space - as a place to store old stuff, just in case you need it. I've provided a link when you
get to the new site so you can navigate back to this one if you want to rummage around through the archives and read nearly
sixteen months worth of postings at this location. From time to time I might dredge up an old one and post it on the new
I've made the decision to move because this particular site is the result of what I've frequently referred to as a bargain
basement web tool. It's got some serious limitations to it, not the least of which is the deteriorating technical support
ever since Earthlink, my host, moved those functions to India and The Philippines. The new location, a Blogger site, will
allow me to include hot links in the text when appropriate. That will save you regular readers some wear and tear on your
mouse fingers as you tried to navigate around on this old site.
Also, the new tool, as you will see, provides an opportunity to directly comment on each posting. Some of you might think
you'll have fun with that, but before your heart begins to pound in anticipation of being able to pillory me with a caustic
diatribe, be advised that I'm in complete control of what appears on the page. If you write something I don't like it will
never reach the page. The same old rules apply - keep it clean and relevant. I always welcome a well-written opposing viewpoint.
So, I hope you will visit the new page and add it to your bookmarks and/or favorites lists. If friends (or enemies) ask how
to reach the site, just tell them to visit www.abubblingcauldron.com - that's a lot easier to remember than the actual URL.
Thanks to all of you that have visited this site in the past and endured it's quirks. I know it was tough to read some of
the postings through the template graphics. I think the new site will be much more easily viewed, although the content will
still be my marginal work product. A new site doesn't necessarily mean shorter posts. One of these days I may find a way
to deliver a message briefly... or not.
As always, I appreciate your viewpoints, so let me know what you think once you find your way to the new site.
