Commenting is now re-enabled!
I recently lost the ability to accept comments on my Blogger posts - this may have been related to my implementation of the new Google+ comments(?) and/or related to my reticence to update to a new blog template.
I (believe I) have reinstated the comment feature, and in the process, (slightly) updated the look of the blog. I welcome your feedback! If you still don't see the comment button please let me know at thefernandmossery at gmail dot com.
