Never fear my friends! yes, indeed Blogger had some hiccups and I didn't get any comments for a few hours, then I checked a different page and there were a whole bunch! So, I think I'm getting them all. I'll wait until tomorrow before I pull a name, just in case some of the comments are delayed in arriving to my box. I'll know when they were posted by their time stamp.
:) So exciting that you all are here!
