I hate to get so mundane on such a wonderful day, but I have a quick announcement to make.
This site has been getting overwhelmed with spam lately. The blogger filter system catches some of it - but not all. Anyway, its a pain in the neck.
So I've changed the comment setting to require a word verification system. It doesn't look like it comes into play if you sign in with an existing account. But please let me know via email (in the "Contact" tab at the top) if you have trouble.
I'm hoping this will discourage the spam-a-lots. I'll turn it off if it presents a problem though.
Thanks for understanding.
And just to keep this from being a total bore, here's a little eye candy.
