Google Strikes Again

This morning I updated the Monthly Clubs tab and Google (which owns the Blogger platform), promptly removed it for "violating community guidelines."  This has been happening for months now.  I can't tell what guideline has been violated or which specific link (there are thousands) has triggered this automatic problem, so I just ask for review of this decision.  Once humans gets their hands on it, whichever tab has been removed will be restored.

But until then, if you go to Monthly Clubs and it's missing, blame Google.

Watch Marie Barber Paint

If you are a fan of Colors of Praise, you can see Marie Barber (the artist behind the line), paint a huge one-of-a-kind needlepoint canvas.

It is an amazing design.
