UPDATING WEBSITE AND CHANGING TO A NEW HOST
Unfortunately, when I called Register.com, my web hoster, about
some issues I was having with uploading photos to my website, they said my website was built on their old software which is
no longer updated. They said I'd have to redo my whole website word for word, picture by picture, design by design.
I had seriously been considering switching providers for awhile now, but did not know my issues were due to their out of date
software. To keep it on Register.com (now Web.com) I'd have to totally rebuild my entire website from scratch.
If I'm going to do that, I'll change providers. So, that should enlighten you as to why some photos look different than
others (they are added as text, not pictures).

a women's group that supports KAC activities. Check it out. As we are moving from classical to modern design we
