Hey Susan, didn't see this before, just opened BP and there it was on the right!!! Well done!! #2651265

Susan Jane Allen level-classic 4/16/2006 11:56:01 PM

That's strange, where on BP did you see it on the right? On the contest page? #2651289

Robyn Gwilt 4/18/2006 12:53:18 AM

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! #2655732

Susan Jane Allen level-classic 4/18/2006 2:06:47 AM

Okay, got it. I never go there as I always click on a link to the sign in page. #2655909

Kara L. Hendricks level-classic 5/11/2006 7:29:13 AM

Congratulations on this fine win Susan...
You have had such an amazing life... WOW!!! #2751139

Susan Jane Allen level-classic 5/11/2006 10:01:26 AM

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... #2751714
