Wonderful image! Sorry to hear about the HD and lost data! I always backup to an external drive. Hopefully it doesn't crash!! #1170729

Michelle Alton level-classic 8/21/2009 3:47:20 AM

Avril, this is an exceptional piece of work--definitely shows your love bigtime!

I think we should all share our computer woes and sit around and cry together. Then laugh! When I tell my stories, people invariably say, "Get a MAC!" Do you think that would help? #7874174
