I'm happy to report I found a copy of my template on my other computer and am putting all my links back in. My original layout isn't working with blogger any longer and I'll have to find a new one at the of the month.
I'm not sure what has happen but its a blogger's worse nightmare for sure. I've lost my template....and all my links and rings. They are gone and I don't even know what happen. I'm in several webrings and I will be working to restore my blog to its formal luster over the next few days. Please bear with me as I reconstruct my layout. Thx for your patience ~ don't give up on me, I'll be back.
