Choose a seat, they are at the the Luna Theater in Lowell, Massachusetts
The seats have a purpose, especially if you enjoy reading comments,
53 51 in comfort. (No, you can't sit there to read, but I wanted the picture shown.) The comments below were left on my blog site, and I never saw them until a few months ago. I realized nobody was leaving comments, but I knew blog readership was down, I had things to do, and it didn't concern me. That was, until I posted 1630 Phipps Cemetery is One of the Oldest in Massachusetts, which had over 1,000 hits within a week, and not one comment, which I thought was unusual. So, I looked into it.
I don't know the ins and outs of Google's Blogger feature regarding comments, but I know I never changed a thing in the Comment Option section. Once I investigated, I saw I had over 1,000 spam, but it's more than that, because I've been deleting them, and the figure stays the same at 1,000. There are also 1,000 published, this shows old comments and my responses. The third category is Awaiting Moderation, which means, I get to read it first, then respond to the writer...what ever that person wrote and what I wrote is available for all to see. I had a total of 167 most were legitimate comments, many signed as unknown or Anonymous, and some were from my blogger or facebook friends.
Recently, I've been going through the 167 comments, deleted a lot, but decided to save 53 to share with you. Quite a few of the writers are facebook friends of mine or known readers, so I wish to thank them for taking the time to respond to my blog, and now they know the reason I didn't thank them back for their comment.
There were many more other comments in the spam folder, that I've never seen, and know weren't posted because Linda Stufflebean mentioned she had visited the Georgia O'Keeffee museum in New Mexico, and I just found that out this week, when she posted her comment in January. Unfortunately, when I selected hers and 15 other comments to paste to Word they became jumbled among themselves. Then I couldn't read a thing.
If you are still a reader, and wish a response, would you please write me at my email address on the blog. All underlined blue links are active. Thank you all for trying to understand what I'm saying.
