      • Thank you – and you are welcome. I love your blog – it has such a wonderful message and I learn and I smile. I get to learn about people I did not know or better about people I have read about or have heard of in passing. I will also admit that i get very caught up in my own little box – and even if i go on CNN or read an article online — i miss so much of what is going on in the world.
