TypePad is currently having TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES where i cannot respond to comments via email. i noticed about 8 comments did not post so i opened a ticket with them. They told me others were experiencing this problem and they were investigating. i had to send them the date and time i responded along with the email reply address. HOPEFULLY this will be resolved soon! So, to all my faithful readers, i apologize but wanted to let you know i was not ignoring you! i value your thoughts and would never intentionally ignore you! Thanks for your patience and understanding while TypePad figures this out.
