I'm not this stupid - THIS IS A GOOGLE ERROR they created around March 25th - read my explanation on the sidebar -- I've been having to REFORMAT all these by hand - they dropped all the line feeds in EVERYONE's older posts and they expect US to fix them one at a time! I have over 1500 posts to fix in 2 movie blogs--- they are STUPID beyond comparison!! nothing like this has happened to my sites since I've been online in the early 80's..

Sorry, I'll get to them all over time - complain to GOOGLE so they know! everyone that blogs is PISSED
