Thank you all for your input on the Word Verification for comments. I am not shutting anyone off but for a while now, until I have figured out something different, I will continue to have it on.
For you who are Anonymous, I have found out another option for you to use on blogs who are excluding the Anonymous commentators. Use the option Name/URL, write your name, press OK and then leave your message. Very simple. No trace back to you more than a name. This is great news, right? The only negative thing I've noticed when experimenting with this is that the comment gets published immediately instead of me having to moderate the comment like I do with all others... Thank you everyone for your great advice and help and keep saying hi when you are around.
Now lets add some crafts to this blog tech post (it is a necessity isn't it?) Darn! I ran out of yarn. So typical now when I am so closed to being finished. Don't you just hate running out of yarn like this? The color bath of my new order better be the same as this one... Sigh...
