Thank you all for the kind comments that I have received. It is appreciated and encouraging!
Several friends have indicated that it was difficult to leave comments on the blog. By default Google required a reader to register on one of the Google platforms in order to leave a comment. I have changed this setting. Now when asked to CHOOSE AN IDENTITY you can select NAME/URL and entering your name, or more simply select ANONYMOUS.
You still have to “prove you are not a robot” by re-typing the twisted distorted words that are displayed. I don’t know what to do about that yet …
So feel free to leave all the comments you want, in any form that works for you, including here on the blog.
