  1. Hi Sarah, All is glorious. As usual. Just submitted several comments on a variety of topics from your most recent “The Glamour of Ornament to older topics. Equally fascinating but once again, after it appeared they had been submitted, the screen went wonky and started asking me to register all over again. The previous comments had vanished. Did you ever receive them? Alas; WordPress seems to be a mess in this department. Sigh.
