Switching from to was easier and quicker than I thought.  So its done.  I’ll do as I did in the past, and leave the site intact for now.  This poor little site has been back and forth from wordpress 4 times now, I think.  anyway, this is it for now.  The domain feels right.  Would have been better if I had been able to get back again, but there was no way I was going to pay hundreds of dollars for a domain that I built up in the first place, to someone who ran it into the ground.  I don’t want it anymore. rules OK
