Welcome to Livin' High and Takin' it Easy. Thanks for dropping by! I'm sorry about the missing blogs, categories, tags, and links. My site crashed last June 2011 and had to go through a painstaking process of revival. We are slowly trying to bring back all the site features and formatting but going through nearly a thousand blog posts just isn't that easy. Thanks for understanding. Cheers!
