Thanks Arlene! I was really pleased with his comments - thought they were excellent and soooo helpful. Tagged, huh? You're as bad as my kids, who've developed a new obsession for playing tag. Somehow I always end up being 'it'.

p.s. perhaps I should check in with my last province. I haven't been to Britannia in ages.


Thanks Nicole! The funny thing about the Guardian workshop was that I WAS doing that obsessive clicking about 300 times a day to see if I'd made it this time, but the results never showed, and then I found the link to the results somewhere else. Bizarre. They finally showed up for me a couple of days later.
