  7. Thanks so much for honoring me… when you sent your note yesterday, I didn’t realize it was already up, as you said you were having technical difficulties! I’ll get on it, later today! I am working on a blog roll, which I never really understood, until recently… you’ll be there. Thanks for the honor! 🙂
