I'm having trouble with "comments".
While "operator error" is always a possibility (!) I've tried to be very aware of what I am clicking. A few of you have left me comments that I have tried to publish... and then they have vanished.
Not being a tech wizard, I haven't yet discovered how to even contact Blogspot about the problem. Still working on it.
In the meantime, if you don't see your comment, please don't take it personally!
