Over the last year or so, several factors that influence this web/blogsite have occurred / changed. As you probably know, we were hacked – the attacks came in through our email links, causing many headaches for Bill, as he worked diligently to build new protections. As a result, we had to suspend auto alerts of new posts to those folks who had requested them.
We also put up another site about Task Force 58 / 38. (www.taskforce58.org) – a work in place, but “unfinished.”
At Bill’s prodding, we put up a Facebook Group Page USS Boston CA-69; there are currently 78 members. Oftentimes, I post the blogs from the original website (https://ca-69boston.org) onto the Facebook page – but not always. Sometimes there is material that appears in one place but not the other.
Which brings me to the final bit: me. Regular readers of this site will have noticed my blogs have been less frequent of late. The reason: I have been immersed in writing something that I’ve wanted to do for 30 years. I side-tracked it for many reasons (not the least of which was the Boston books and the websites). I won’t reveal what it is exactly – but it involves a piece of colonial history that “changed everything.” I have not walked away from the Boston, but until I finish what I started, my contributions will be less frequent.
