She gave my mother such a turn, that I have always been convinced I am indebted to Miss Betsey for having been born on a Friday. The word was appropriate to the moment. My mother was so much worse that Peggotty, coming in with the teaboard and candles, and seeing at a glance how ill she was, – as Miss Betsey might have done sooner if there had been light enough, – conveyed her upstairs to her own room with all speed; and immediately dispatched Ham Peggotty, her nephew, who had been for some days past secreted in the house, unknown to my mother, as a special messenger in case of emergency, to fetch the nurse and doctor. The doctor having been upstairs and come down again, and having satisfied himself, I suppose, that there was a probability of this unknown lady and himself having to sit there, face to face, for some hours, laid himself out to be polite and social. He was the meekest of his sex, the mildest of little men. He sidled in and out of a room, to take up the less space. He walked as softly as the Ghost in Hamlet, and more slowly. He carried his head on one side, partly in modest depreciation of himself, partly in modest propitiation of everybody else. It is nothing to say that he hadn’t a word to throw at a dog. He couldn’t have thrown a word at a mad dog. He might have offered him one gently, or half a one, or a fragment of one; for he spoke as slowly as he walked; but he wouldn’t have been rude to him, and he couldn’t have been quick with him, for any earthly consideration.

    The debate about blog commenting is really interesting. Let’s think, what value do you get from simply reading one side’s message, one side’s argument?

    This can even encourage the reader to leave his own opinion about certain topic, thus adding value of the whole post. Surely, such a result benefits everybody, even including those who are just reading and sit quiet on the sidelines.

    • Tom Sparks to Susie Cuatro

      There exist countless situations on any type of blog, that we find the reader’s comments even more informative and interesting, than the post itself.

        They say “Once a customer, always a customer”. The same works with blogging – “Once an action taker, always an action taker”.

    The same works with blogs – a relatively large amount of comments sparks curiosity and grabs people’s attention.
