I've been fiddling around with something that I found that is supposed to reduce the amount of spam comments that we get on the blog.  You may have noticed some odd comments placed on posts recently.  As it turns out, spammers think that it's a good idea to automate posting of comments that link to their web sites on unsuspecting blogs across the web.  Luckily, some people have come up with an incredibly sophisticated method of determining whether or not someone is a computer or a real person:  Ask them a really stupid question.  So, every time you post a comment to the blog, you'll have to answer a silly little question which may or may not change, depending on how often I feel like changing it.  If for some reason, it doesn't work for you, please let me know.

Isn’t it a sad commentary that spammers and their ilk are so smart? Too bad that they can’t use their talent for good things! I still cannot log in using the username and pw that Kari sent me. I Clicked on “Register your username/Log in” and typed the info and it kept telling me that there was no such user registered! Now what? Zach turned 1 last Saturday and finally started crawling last week. Now he goes up and/or down stairs, anywhere he sees something that looks interesting… The poor dog, Hank, is going to be worn out before he is old since he really keeps a close watch on Zachie—he thinks Zach belongs to him!
Love,
Aunt Sheila
