  1. What a wonderful site! — dense with data, but flows so fluidly — and gives the feeling of really caring for all who are considered. But when I try to sign up to Follow Blog Via Email, I receive the response “Your subscription did not succeed, please try again with a valid email address.” I used a valid email, and tried from several spots, including Facebook. Although I wasn’t able to find what the problem is, I am hoping maybe you can! Anyway, regardless of anything else, thank you for creating this wonderful blog!


    • Hi flowwalker, Thank you for your kind words and I’m very pleased you like the blog. Be assured, I’ve received a notification you are now subscribed and will begin receiving an email whenever a new article is published. Best, Susan
