Thank you to every reader who has left comments in the past 6 weeks or more! I did think it unusual that the last comment I had was on November 14th, but then I figured that perhaps readers were very busy with the holidays and life in general, not to mention...other national upsets.
So Blogger, you have "tricked" me, I suppose! Where once I saw my comments and my ability to publish them, there has been nothing at all. So this evening I searched deeper, in a different place, and lo and behold found them.
I am so sorry that I have not replied to all the interesting comments. I will post and reply to each and every commenter. My regrets!!
P.S. Later Saturday evening: I thoroughly enjoyed spending more than an hour responding to each comment, which I've so gratefully received. If you have some time, please look back to find them. Thanks to all!
