Okay. Thanks Mauna. I just came back here to see if you had answered as I didn't get any word on it. As I said, Daniele is aware of this and is working on it. Thanks much. Have a great weekend.

Tukup, I’m not currently getting emails for comments (for example, I didn’t get an email for your comment).

Hi Mauna. Are you getting comment notifications or are you missing them again too? I should have gotten several on Machi's SOTD and several others. Daniele has explained why and it's no big problem. I just need to keep checking for comments. I'm just curious.

Hi Mauna. What a beautiful flower in the midst of a somewhat drab setting. There is beauty everywhere. One just has to look for it. Thanks.
