I am on vacation this week and next. I have prepared posts for this week and next. I'm grateful for Typepad's ability to delay posts and gradually release these. Consequently, when a post appears on Wednesday morning (as it will) that doesn't mean that I wrote the post that morning. It only means that Typepad posted on the blog on that day.
So, you can read posts this week and next. However, I am unable to respond to comments while on vacation.
Thanks and I am blessed that all of you choose to read this blog.
