Enhancements to the Walker Broad Blog

As many of you will know Sandy maintains a blog on the Walker Broad website,
detailing the adventures of Walker Broad and sometimes including poetry and
writing that is not so strictly related to the duo.

A few of you have asked for the facitly to comment on the blog or to "add
ticks of excellence" so I have added Google Plus One buttons and a comments
option to satisfy your demands...

The comments are protected by a "captcha", you know, one of those things
where you have to type the letters and numbers from the image to post you
comment. We've iopted to do this as there are so many dodgy bots out there,
and we don't want to end up advertising something sleazey!

* About The Captcha *

In case you ever wandered what CAPTCHA actually means it stands for it
means: "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and
Humans Apart". Obviously it's a pun on capture, it captures bots and not
humans (hopefully). The one we've chosen to use, is reCPATCHA. It uses the
human response to the captcha to gradually digitise older books that OCR
(Optical Character Recognition) software can't cope with. More info about

* About The Plus One Butons *

As google have recently announced that they are dropping support for older
browsers you may find the plus one buttons don't show if you using an older
browswer, sorry about that, I think there is a work arround but I haven't
had time to implment it yet.

importantly listen to some of our music whilst you are there!
