Just an administrative note. It appears that in striving for increased security, Google has broken the search gadget at the top of the page. Given the support we can expect for a "free" product, I won't hold my breath waiting for a fix. Since I use the search feature frequently myself, I've added a new search widget in the side bar. Use it until such time the built-in menu bar search might be fixed.
Update, May 20: To my delight and surprise, Google actually fixed the search bar they broke. Typically, Blogger issues don't get fixed that fast. I've removed the side bar search for now.
