There are a few changes around here...

the obvious change is the background and header...
but I do that a lot anyway...
so here is one of the probably many valentine backgrounds you will see this month..

I have been getting quite a bit of spam comments lately...
so I changed it so that you must have a google account to leave a comment...
this will knock out the spam...
and I am sorry if some you will not be able to comment now...
but I don't want that nasty stuff on my blog...
and blogger can actually shut your blog down for someone else's comment!
it's just not fair, I know...
so this is the only way I know to stop it from happening...

also, in the last week...
I have changed my comments from being at the bottom of the post to the pop up window...
which, I know for me when I am leaving comments on your posts...
it is the easiest and fastest way to do it...
duh...
I know, sometimes it takes me awhile to catch onto things...
it is also the best way to respond to comments left to you...
just click on the person and it pops open another window to take you their blog...
and when you are done, it changes to just the name of the blog and you can go down through the list so fast!

now, back to your regularly scheduled blogging...
stay safe, warm and cozy...
and remember the ones without heat and shelter today...
it is so cold out...
God help the homeless...
and the ones who lost electric...
and the ones stuck out on the roads...
and keep all our emergency personel safe...
Rebecca is still without power at her home and most of Charleston is out today until 7PM
Rebecca made it to Mattoon where she works and her parents live, so she is staying there until the power comes back on...
her husband is home with house, wood stove and animals...
the sun is shining today again, but it's too cold for anyone to be out...
we will have above freezing temps for the weekend!

Love the valentines...tried to e mail you did you check no reply again? Maybe with the changes that's how you want it, but just didn't want you to think I was ignoring you! I enjoy your comments! Lezlee

Very pretty changes, Tete. Love your new header. I am so sorry that you got spammed. I didn't know that people without google accounts could not reply. Is that a fact? Hmmmm...that could be why some people told me they tried to leave a comment and couldn't.

When I reply to someone I just do it through my gmail...I open all my comments through my gmail and then reply to them right there. It doesn't show up on my blog and goes right to them.

Hope your wintry evening is a good one. I am here until 9pm tonight and then have to go home and bake for our pot luck at work tomorrow. Hugs-Diana
