My apologies to all of you who posted comments and whose comments have disappeared. It was not my doing: I love your comments!
It’s apparently an issue that other WordPress bloggers have been having. Not being a techie person, I don’t understand how it happened. But it did: poof! they disappeared altogether , even from the comment table says my IT person (who is also the baker and the pit master) – so there is no way to retrieve them from the cyber nethers. The first time it happened, a few months ago, I decided to save your comments as e-mails on my own computers. I will therefore try to repost them (a slow task!), as so many of them add so much to the conversation!
Thank you for reading this blog, and commenting.
