As much as I hated to do it, I had to change my settings using word verification. I just have been
getting all sorts of anonymous emails and solicitations since I removed it. I thought after a while it would end but it keeps going on so I had no choice. Hopefully blogger makes the words more readable and the nos. Keep commenting even though it is a hastle.
Note: After reading Debbie's comment I have done what she suggested and I will see how that works out for me. Thank you Debbie.
