I'm sorry to say that when I checked in here this morning, the comments area of my previous post and another were filling up with spam. As a result, I've had to reinstate the word verification program once again. I hope this doesn't discourage anyone from commenting as I always enjoy hearing from you all. Still, it seems that this blog has been targeted by spammers who will not go quietly into the night, and I just cannot abide my creation being polluted by garbage advertising. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause my readers.
