Despite the very young age of my blog I am already getting inundated with spam comments.  I would much rather read the real comments from all of you without having to filter through and moderate a multitude of spam comments.  So, I decided to add a Captcha image to the comment form.  I know they can be somewhat of a pain, so I apologize, but I felt it was a necessary step.

If you would like to avoid dealing with the Captcha, please feel free to register for the blog.  Registered users who are logged in will not be prompted to enter Captcha information.  Registration links can be found in the right sidebar.
