Thanks all, an unpleasant lesson learned. It would be great to be able to go into your profile and see any drafts there. And be able to return to them. Is there anyone we can talk to about such functionality? Maybe some of us could put some money together and even help pay for the enhancement (I know I'd kick in some)

Also, be sure you check the box to stay logged in.  I have had posts get
lost because my login expired before I submitted the post.
