It took me long enough, didn't it. ;3

In case you wonder what I'm talking about, and it's a good thing you label the posts, I just cross-referenced these links on your blog at LinksAPlenty. Hope you don't mind.

You're welcome. ;3 I try to keep track of helpful advice and things. I'm not always successful, but I try. You can ask my daughter, or my sisters.. They will assure you, I'm very trying.

Hey, thanks, Jon, for linking to my blog post on pacing. And especially thanks for calling it your pick of the week!

(And sorry it took me this long to realize you'd done so.)
