Technical note: Why are comments closed?

I LOVE to hear feedback about blogposts but unfortunately I don’t know how to control spam on the blog. And the spam got so bad (over 10,000!) that the very generous guy hosting this blog (THANK YOU BRIAN!) was losing too much space. So for now I had to close the comments. But feel free to e-mail me if you want to tell me what a great blogger I am or what great pictures I take or what cute kids I have. 😉
