This should make most of you HAPPY: I have disabled word verification.No longer will you have to enter a nonsensical group of letters like the above in order to post a comment on my blog. This should make all of you want to quit lurking (see Tangerine Tulips, my daughter Kristen's blog. According to her, a blurker is a blog lurker who doesn't comment. ) and instead click the comment button to EASILY publish you opinions! No hassles!!
Of course there is the possibility that my blog & comment forum could be invaded by some hacker machine code, but for the time being I'll expose it to that risk for the convenience of my readers.
