It seems that Google now requires viewers to authenticate their identity by signing in to "follow" a blog. Efforts to find a direct way to do this continue!
For the moment, interested readers can click on any of the "Comment " or even a "No Comments" link, scroll to the bottom of the page, and wait about a minute for the "Who's reading this blog?" watermark to load. Then, click on the link to become a member, and comment away!
Even if nothing in this blog stirs your interest enough to generate a few words, you may want to sign up so that the photos can be double-clicked and viewed at full size. Enjoy!
