Special Note to Fellow BloggersPlease be aware that there are now wonderful tools, like Akismet (http://akismet.com/), for blocking spam comments that drive bloggers nuts. Actually, the number of blocked spam comments to this blog far outnumber the number of legit comments. I occasionally check to see if perhaps a legit comment may have been mistakenly blocked - I've never found one yet! I say this only because, as a heavy blog reader and commenter myself, some of the spam blocking devices (such as Captcha and other word verifiers) used by bloggers are both irritating and noneffective as well. And I always wonder if blog authors who use those devices realize that they often drive potential readers and commenters away. Think about it folks, if you use a word verifier, you are undoubtedly losing many readers and commenters.

When You Are Humbled By a Loaf of Bread …
It’s only right and fair that I admit that one big reason why I successfully completed my recent eye surgery rehab was that I had heretofore unmentioned assistance – namely from my helpmate and private duty nurse, Sandee. At the … Continue reading
But, Can You Come Home Again?
I’ve always been fascinated with Thomas Wolfe’s concept about how man can’t retrace his/her steps through experience and growth – and the older we get, the truer this concept becomes. It’s like our spirit is kept prisoner in the depths … Continue reading
