Sorry about the comments section of my blog not being available on the last few posts, and thanks to those of you who have pointed it out. After much searching and fiddling I have discovered the cause. Type pad up graded their interface and I think some of the option settings changed without my realising it. Comments used to be available automatically, but now I have to select it when I compose the post, or perhaps I always had to select it, but haven't recently because I tend to publish my posts straight from MSWord! Either way problem solved and posts should now be available for comment. Your comments are of course very valuable to me, and an essential part of what makes blogging worth while. Most of the really interesting stuff takes place in these comments. If you wanted to comment on one of those posts please do so.
On a general note in the realm of comments I have decided to moderate them, although I publish most comments unedited and am open for free and frank discussion on any issue. There are however, the occasional stupid insulting comments that no one needs to be exposed to. Sadly, lack of time and apathy have combined to cause me to spend a lot less time on this blog than I should, and comments can in hectic moments in my life, go unanswered for even a week or more. I do get there eventually, alhamdulillah.
