Thank you, Jeannie, for getting my day off on the right foot. Those quotes are so meaningful. I think I'll direct my granddaughter to your website today. She needs to hear this message too. Enjoy the Italian experience. Two more days and your stuff that you are expecting gets there. Right?

Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday. I had to enable comment moderation on my blog for awhile there too. I've removed it and so far haven't gotten any more porn - but I do, the moderation will go back on!

Got stuff yet?

I tagged you on my blog for a little meme, I hope you'll play!
