WHAT am I supposed to do? I turned on Comment Moderation because Chinese spammers had found me and seemed to enjoy whatever it was they thought they were doing but I couldn't really tell because I don't read Chinese and so even if they were offering me 10 different ways to enlarge my penis I still wouldn't have any way to figure it out so why put up with it?
And then I decided "well, I'll turn it off" (Comment Moderation, that is) and found out when I went into the settings stuff here on Blogger that there IS some new stuff back there and I have more than 13,000 comments on this blog - more that 13,000 since December 13, 2007, which is when LouCeeL was born and I think that's amazing. I mean WOW. And I know there are people out there who probably get that many comments in a month but I'm not one of them and really, I don't care to be, because if I got that many too quickly I'd never be able to interact with all those people and comments.
I decided to "turn it off" because I went all day before I realized I actually had to go and MODERATE the darn comments and there they were so I hit "Publish" on all of them and boy do I feel foolish.
So I turned it off.
Grannie's gonna be okay. She's in a regular room, out of ICU, and now it's just a question of managing pain and allowing time and Nature to heal her wounds and restore her mobility and routine.
Thank you ALL, for your kind words and well wishes.
