Typepad Issues

Our blogging platform, Typepad, tried to install upgrades and conduct maintenance to the platform over the weekend.  Apparently there were issues causing blog users to be unable to access their blogs or create posts.  They have rolled back the upgrades and are still in the process of trying to correct everything.  You may not be able to see some pictures at this time due to the problems.  My apologies to everyone who tried to visit us or upload a card.  What a mess!  Hopefully the platform will be fully restored soon.  Thank you for supporting Retro Rubber!  We appreciate you!!
