A few people have informed me that my blog is not accepting comments properly. I apologize if you've taken the time to type something and found that the comment function was not working. StatCounter also indicates that some comments may not have been accepted. I enjoy receiving comments, and it is very unfortunate that the blog is not working properly.
In an effort to correct this issue, I have changed the comment format. Now when you leave a comment, a pop-up window will appear, and you can type your comment on that page. Hope this works! (The Blogger Help directory indicates that this may be a fix.) In addition, you can always cut and paste the comment and leave it on my Facebook fan page.
P.S. If anyone else has had a similar problem, please let me know how you fixed it.
