Help! How do I banish convoluted WordPress block editor? Didn’t ask for it, can’t use it, not inclined to ask how high when WordPress says jump! I’m grumpy, frustrated and held hostage by inability to post content with ease. I’m posting without categories, tags or image because I can’t figure out how. SO MAD!

In western Kansas during the mid-1930s, farmers over plowed the soil and it dried out and began to blow. This created dust storms and mass amounts of static electricity. With no vegetation,the area heated up to record temperatures.
The area was then plagued with hoards of black-tailed jackrabbits. Adults were capable of producing three to eight offspring every 32 days. The rabbits ate everything in their path. By 1935 the Wichita Beacon estimated there were 8,000,000 rabbits in 30 western Kansas counties.

“Let us not seek the Republican answer, or the Democratic answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.”
John F. Kennedy
“Power always brings with it responsibility.”
Sometimes, leaders do not rise to the necessary levels during such times of need.
“I don’t take responsibility at all.”
Cosmic advice from Kenneth T.
When you want to wash your hands the right way– and you have forgotten the words to the Happy Birthday song (due to copyrights) or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star;
You can always go the Star Trek (tos) way:
“Space, the final frontier
These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise
Its five year mission
