That's all quite interesting and great to know all these things about you. I really don't know when I can get to this because as Patricia says, it does require serious thinking and I am off and doing other things right now besides blogging. I'm trying to set up another shop at another site, plus getting ready to take a final in Real Estate.As you can see, I haven't been posting every day. So I will at this time postpone it and get to it at another time. Thanks though for thinking of me. Have a great weekend.
