It's with red face that I again must admit that I've come across a whole crop of comments that escaped my notice.
I've bemoaned the lack of interesting and thoughtful comments, and so when I find out that I've overlooked a whole slew of them, I feel extra bad. Some were on posts from some time ago, though I hope that it's not too late for others to read them. They're worth looking for.
There were a lot of very good ones, thoughtful and interesting.
Again, my apologies to those who took the time to comment but didn't see their thoughts appear. They've been posted now.
It's not a very good excuse, but my mail program "stacks" up mail that comes on the same subject. Sometimes I read the top one, don't see any others (I'd have to scroll down) and move on to the next. I assume that's how I manage to miss so many comments.
I'll renew my efforts to be more thorough in the future.
