Thanks Ken! My first, and hopefully not my last! Thanks for all your support and for noticing, when it's really far back and takes searching to find! Off to work this morning so no time yet to see what you won! Let me know!

You've put in a lot of work, great job!

Thanks Cherylann! If it weren't for all you guys and your help, not to mention your upbeat encouragement, I wouldn't even know how to use my new camera! So, thanks to you!

That's strange, where on BP did you see it on the right? On the contest page?

Nope, on the home page, when you open BP, and they always have a pic on the right that changes everytime you open the home page. Well done!

Thanks Kara. You know, whenever I give a talk and hear myself introduced along with the list of places I've lived, I always think, "Gosh, it sounds so exciting!" Enriching yes, no one can deny that, but if I've learned anything, it's that living life is about the same everywhere. You still have to clean the toilet, see to the shopping, feed the cat, get along with your colleagues and neighbors... But most of all, I've found that my life is still just what I make it day by day. I can be stressed and irritable, or patient and joyful, depending upon how much effort I want to make in working on my character! But ":^) I must say that life is SO much more laid back and relaxing in non-Western countries...
