Captcha- Is it just me?

This is a blogger to blogger post.

I read through my favorite blogs each day and then branch out and read more blogs. I like to comment on the ones I read but I have been slack at doing that lately because every time I comment I have to prove I am not a robot before it will accept it. I hate doing this. I aggravates me.
This used to happen only a few times, and that was ok, but now it’s every single time. I have to click on all the bicycle pictures or frirehydrates, busses or bridges. I spend more time doing this than actually posting a comment. It is annoying. 

So my question is, does everyone have this problem or is it just me? Does anyone know how I can avoid this?
Personally on my blog, I do have the “Captcha” turned on but only for comments on post that are over 90 days old. Thats usually the ones that the spammers seem to hit. 

Do you have to prove your not a robot when you comment on my page? 
Maybe it a new Google or blogger thing. Maybe its just my settings. 

I’d love your input on this. 

When you Lose a Blogger Friend

I get on my blog every day to catch up on new post from other bloggers.
The blogging world is pretty cool as I have made a lot of special friends through blogging. Some of the bloggers I follow, I feel very close to.

Bloggers express a lot about themselves. They will write about their jobs, family, and hobbies. They will talk about trips they have taken, foods they have eaten and share photos of what their eyes focus on in a particular hour. 
We watch as their families grow and what new adventures they take.
You know what they did yesterday, today and sometimes tomorrow. But tomorrow never comes for some. 

One of the dear bloggers that I follow wrote his last post on Wednesday the 15th. He mentioned being under the weather but still took his dog Hook for a walk and shared a glimpse of Hook through a photo. 
Then some time between that post and my morning coffee, he passed away. 

When you lose a blogger friend it leaves a little empty feeling in your day. Your left with lots of questions as they can no longer write telling you whats going on in their life. They just, go. You will never hear from them again (unless they have scheduled post). 

I will remember him as a great writer, singer and songwriter. I own one of his books and enjoyed reading it as I sat one day on the beach.
He adored his wife and mentioned her in almost every single post. They were adorable together and I loved hearing about their singing gigs, fun with the kids, walks, tea time and chicken coops. 
I also was intrigued by the stories of his bee hives and look forward to the education he shared as a new bee keeper.

will be missed my many.
Though we never met, the friendship was still there.
Please keep his wife and family in your prayers.
