Would you like to comment on our blog?

Nothing is more rewarding to a blogger than someone leaving a comment, and anyone reading our blog has the ability to do so. Comments are entry-specific, so that if you comment after "The Drums of Mozambique," it shows up at the bottom of that entry (see where it says, "1 comment"?). If you would like to comment on an entry:

  • Go to the bottom of one entry (before the title of the next).

  • Find the text that says "0 comments," "1 comments," "2 comments," or whatever.

  • Click on that text.

  • This will take you to the Comment section for that entry. On the left you will see all the comments that folks have left (so far Lara's aunt Laine is the only person who has commented on "The Drums of Mozambique"). On the right, under "Leave a Comment," you will see a field (a place where you can type), some options under "Choose Your Identity", and two buttons: "Publish Your Comment" and "Preview." We're almost there! Now, to leave comment:

  • Type a message in the field (this is your comment).

  • Use "Choose Your Identity" to tell us who you are.

  • The easiest way is to click the button by "other" and type in your name. The name you type here will be what is displayed under your comments (i.e. Mark Harvey or Grandoodie).

  • Finally, click "Publish Comment".

  • You're all done! Check to make sure it posted by looking at the bottom of the entry you commented under (where you first clicked to get to the comments section). The number that was there should be one higher now. Click on it and you should find you comment.

    Seriously, please don't hesitate to leave us a note. We love knowing that people back home are reading. As a matter of fact, just to make sure you know how, try leaving a comment after this entry. We'd love to hear from you. Happy commenting!

    Hi guys!

    I'm still reading. In fact, I put Mozamblog on my iGoogle page as an RSS feed. That way I can keep up with the new posts as you make them.

    Your descriptions are nicely vivid, and I have enjoyed hearing about all your experiences. Thanks for doing such a lovely job of sharing it all.

    still reading and sending you love and warm wishes,

    I too have put Mozanblog on my favorites at home and at work. I check it almost daily. I eagerly await each new post so that I can somewhat catch a glimpse of the experience. You both describe your experiences so well that I can almost feel it & hear it my self.

    We love you & miss you guys!!

    Love always,

    Hey! Now I know how. thnaks. I just revert to the "old fashioned" way and e-mail you. This is clearly understood. Both of you write beautifully. I love the blogs. It seems like I am there. Although I would not be because of giant roaches!!! Anyway, I hope you don't like Africa too much, we want you home eventually!

    I am still reading also. I look forward to each blog.
    Since I have always wanted to go to Africa, I am taking a WONDERFUL vicarious trip provided by two writers who know how to GET YOU THERE. Thanks.

    Hi Kev & Laura--

    This is cousin Craig. Just catching up and haven't read "Drums" yet -- can't wait. All of your posts have been wonderful (rusty undies, the taxi experience...great stuff!) and much appreciated -- please keep it up.

    We are so sorry we didn't comment earlier, but we didn't realize that we could. We have thoroughly enjoyed all of your accounts covering your many activities. We are amazed at all of the things that y'all have experienced and are just as amazed at how well written your accounts of them are. We really look forward to what's new from Kevin and Lara! So "Keep them cards and letters coming!"

    Candice and I are reading... and then discussing (mostly imagining Kevin have a guy the size of a 10 yr old driving him around on a bike). I feel your pain on the cold showers. We recently tiled our laundry room which housed our hot water heater. We were without hot water for a few days... couldn't imagine a cold shower every day. The good thing is you realize how many muscles you have, simply because they all contract when you jump in. Very similar to when Bruce Banner turns into the Incredible Hulk. Best wishes with the rest of your trip... Can't wait to hear about it in person.

    Kevin & Lara,

    Hi, it's Chrissy here in Greensboro keeping track of you guys in Africa. I'm so impressed with you both!

    I saw the wedding photos of your beautiful wedding on Joe's blog--I'm so sorry I wasn't there. However, do tell me when you are coming back to the states so I can send your wedding gift, which would be highly inappropriate in Mozambique.

    All's well in the 'Boro--Kevin, I blame you that Fitz and Spencer are total Madden addicts. It's football all day, everyday.

    Let me know, too, if you guys are craving something American like PopTarts. My cousin in currently stationed in Hong Kong and he sent out a message begging for PopTarts.

    Can we send you stuff where you are?

    Take care and love to Lara--chrissy

    Hey Laura and Kevin:

    We have greatly enjoyed your blog stories. We envy your experiences in a far away land. We only get as far as Viola, TN., We'll be attending a Christmas dinner at Nancy Stubblefield's home there in December.

    You guys are on quite an adventure. I think it's wonderful and everyone should get to experience something like this at least once in their life. Lisa's been telling me to get on here and check it all out. I'm glad I did! It's amazing. I love the pictures of the children. Please bring "Big Eyes" home to me. He would make a wonderful brother for Chloe!! :) I also love the video and pix of the dancing. I love their free-spririted way of just lettin' the drumbeat move 'em! I'd fit right in there! It was great to meet Lara Fri night at Capalano's (Lisa has bragged on her so much- beauty & brains!)and you know I enjoyed the show- who wouldn't! I haven't had that much fun, well, since the last time you guys performed there! Keep up the great work!
