"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Once more with feeling please.....

Is it me? Is it just me? You know those verification letters you have to type before your blog post comment gets posted? Those 'please type these letters as you see them' whatchamacallits? Are they getting freakier, swirlier, more smooshed together? I know that blogger, typepad, etc. are trying to protect us from spammers' comments on our blogs, but wouldn't it be great if there were a feature that let you release regular reader friends from this torture? If any of the powers that be are reading this, I hereby charge you with this task. I'm just sayin'.......
^..^ CS


**p.s. I'm releasing you all, my lovely readers, from this time-wasting verification procedure on this blog. There. I've turned it off. We'll see how it goes. Spammers, beware. Don't mess with me or my peeps or I'll send a posse of tracking Corgis to find you on a day when you are wearing a dark suit and let them shed all over you. Twice.



(thank you!)

I agree 100%!!! I get people not wanting spam (I've only ever gotten spam 2 or 3 times and I don't use the verification), but sometimes I have to try a couple of times because I can't read the letters!

Ok, wish my lucking posting this! ;)

thank you for releasing me LOL! I have found that on the journals that have the letter verifications that I'm getting actual words (like tonight I had the word "start") it makes it so much easier when it is a word to type than just a series of letters; so far I haven't seen much spam on people's journals (unless they remove them really quick) so maybe we'll be spared

I think your very scary threat will thwart any potential spam attempt!

I just about died laughing at your threat to the spammers... I try to warn all those who come to my house never to wear black or cordouroy, velvet or velor unless they would like to go home with a few pounds of corgi hair clinging to them!
And to think, when i asked breeders - what is the worst thing about your breed, they all said the same thing "hmmmm, well, you know they shed, right?" I thought that was a funny thing to say, of course they shed, don't most dogs? and then i got my frist corgi, and i undstood the warning... it didnt stop me from getting a second one though...

I love your blog and your art work-oh and i adore the cute corgi photos... can't get enough of those!
