YEAH -----my updates are now working.
I was invited to dinner last Wednesday night to AN ALPHABET DINING EVENT - Creative Dining in Maleny, where the guest of honour was 'G' for Gary. Gary is a techno wizz, and I asked him about my blog not updating in follower's side panels. He said something about RSS feed. I googled RSS and simply cut and pasted the RSS address into my blog feed setting, [after I meticulously copied down the 160 letter address that was already there - just in case]. I have no idea where the dodgy address originally came from but hey - the new one seems to be working now. Fingers crossed :)
[this is a favourite painting, 'Canopy', to hopefully appear and celebrate my updated status in your blog feed]

'Forest - Aerial View'
