Band of Bloggers

It is 8½ years since I started to blog in Atlantic Lines. I opened this journal to carry on after AOL pulled the plug on J-land. That was a community of bloggers, which tried to make a go of it here on Blogger, but ended up on Facebook.

One of their number, Sugar Lewis, has announced that she will close her Facebook account. Sugar has provided me with most of the tags on a memorial journal, commemorating those of us who passed away. Sugar, an ordained minister, has been battling ill health for a long time, and often shared the joys and woes of her furrs. She will now retire from the internet. Sugar, you will be missed.


  1. I really miss all the bloggers we used to know. Changes happen, but I'm still blogging. Just can't seem to get into Facebook the way some do.

  2. Sugar will be missed so much Guido.I love Sugar such a lot,she has been a very good Friend to me since J/Land.I missed the tags she used to make me too.She will be in my prayers and thoughts daily.Kath Motherhen xxx

  3. I do remember Sugar. I hope her health issues will allow her to still do some of the other things that are important to her.

  4. I saw her post yesterday. I wish her well. Can't believe it has been so long since AOL closed.

  5. I had lost touch with Sugar. What a sweet dear woman. I don't blame her for wanting to focus on real life. Thanks for posting this Guido!
