I’ve changed the comment setting so that all comments have to be approved.  In the early days of this blog the readers were folks who know me, or knew of me due to shared connections or affiliations.  With the increased publicity has come increased readership which for the most part has brought some wonderful things with it – such as the words of support and encouragement and the gift of new ideas and resources of which I was not aware.  It has also brought some less pleasant things including comments that amount to personal attacks.  This is my life and I don’t believe it can be said I’m whining about it.  I’m just living it as well as I can! Like I tell the kids – you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit!  So, please, if you don’t like the blog, don’t read it!  There’s a lot of content on the web and I’m certain you can find something that aligns better with your point of view.  Comments that are vulgar, hostile, political rants (or even debates- there are other places for that) and personal attacks will not be approved for publication.  Comments that are civil, and constructive are always welcomed, as, naturally are the words of encouragement and the sharing of your similar situation!  Now back to our irregularly schedule programming.
