Hi Carol... managed to read three of your suggested posts. Loved the one by Lynnea Miller. The post announcing the death of Joe Petrowsky was one I wish I hadn't had to read. So sad to have lost him.

Thanks for the reading list - I see I have a bit to catch up on given a busy holiday week that mean I didn't read all that much. Hope you had a wonderful Holiday!

I always love second-chance posts.  You can't possibly read every post every day so second chances give us another opportunity to read the cliff notes!!
