Sorry, Dear Readers, but the comments will be moderated until further notice. The up side is that you won’t have to do that dumb letter recognition thing anymore, but your comments won’t appear right away.
I’ve had a request for a button – something like “Featured on Things to Write Home About.” What do you think?
I have a lot of gems to share this week, Dear Reader, partly because it’s been two weeks since I last posted my notes. I hope you enjoy them!
