Privacy Policy:
We collect no personal information. However, if you subscribe to new post notifications we will ask for your name and email address. You can easily unsubscribe at any time. We will never share your name, email address or any other info about you with anyone. Period.

Home Page:
The home page can be reached by clicking on the My Quantum Discovery title at the top of the site. This page shows an excerpted summary of the 10 most recent posts listed by date with the newest at the top. At the bottom of this list is a link to Older Posts and Newer Posts which will give you the next ten excerpts. In this manner you may browse the entire timeline of our site. To open the full post, simply click on either the excerpt title, the thumbnail image or the Continue Reading link.

There is a search icon in the upper right corner of the site and a search box at the very bottom of each page. Type in key words for what you are looking for and a list of matching post excerpts will appear.

If you would like to jump to a particular month/year, the Archives box in the right column provides a drop down that will bring up a list of post excerpts for any month/year.

The Categories box in the right column  provides a drop down of all the blog categories. Selecting one will produce an excerpt summary list of all posts that have been assigned to that category. Note that for sub-catagories, clicking on the master category will display all of them. For example the master category Fun Stuff has two sub-categories, Attractions & Tours and Good Eats. Selecting Good Eats will show only the restaurant posts, selecting Attractions & Tours will show only those posts, but selecting Fun Stuff will show posts from both of those sub-categories.

The Subscribe box is located in the right margin of the site. We hope you will use Subscribe to be notified automatically by email anytime we publish a new post. We love to know that people are reading our posts and hopefully getting some entertainment or useful info from them. We consider that our “payment” for the many hours we put into writing our posts.

Note that you may unsubscribe at any time by simply clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email you will receive when we publish a new post. We publish at most perhaps 10 posts per month and very rarely do we publish more than one post per day.

When you first subscribe to our blog you will receive a confirmation email. At the bottom of that email is a link to Modify Your Subscription Options – there you will be able to see and manage all your WordPress subscriptions including our blog and any other WordPress blogs you may have subscribed to. In Settings you will be able to change a number of delivery parameters for each subscription such as a weekly digest. You may also manage your Comment subscriptions if you have any.

Please feel free to comment on any of our posts. We love to get comments! The Comment box is at the end of every post.There are two checkboxes after the comment box:

  • Notify me of follow up comments by email – checking this will let you know if we, or anyone else, makes a follow up comment about that post. Note that even if you do not check this box, we will still automatically send you an email if we respond to your comment, but that is the only email you will ever receive. If the box is not checked and someone else comments on the post or your comment you will not get a notification email. If you want to be notified of any other comments about this post you should check this box. Checking this box will not notify you of any comment activity on any other posts.
  • Notify me of new posts by email – checking this is the same as Subscribe.

Our comments are moderated and will appear on the site only after they are reviewed by one of us. After your first comment, we may allow any new comments to appear automatically. Please refrain from including links in your comments as that may be considered spam and automatically filtered out by our spam filter.
