1) When Debby was here last week, she presented me with a beautiful quilt that she had made specifically for me! And I have been remiss in not thanking her publicly for it. One side was made to look like the mountains which mean so much to me and the other side is a unique pattern with my favorite verse of scripture on it. Probably to no one's surprise, that verse is Psalm 121:1, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help." Debby had no idea that was my favorite verse, but out of the 31,100+ verses in the Bible, she chose that one to put on my quilt! I will treasure it along with the memories of her visit forever!
2) A gentle reminder if you haven't done so already.....help me with my Friend In Every State goal. Read details under the tab along the top of the blog. Now that I've started this, I really want to reach the goal! So far, 21 states, 2 provinces and 1 European country are "officially" documented. Let me know if you are reading. This insatiable traveler's mind wants to know where you are!
3) My posts are often long. Too long..........I know! And I've tried to shorten them. And I'll keep trying! One thing I've tried hard to do is make them easy to read. If the print is too small, here's a trick which might help. Press ctrl + and the print will enlarge. You can make the print as large as you want. The reverse also works (ctrl - ) reducing the size of the print.
4) And one more detail..........I wrote about Word Verification here. Many bloggers still have this feature enabled and commenting continues to be frustrating because the double words are so difficult to read. I think many of you enabled it when you set up your blog and may not even realize it is still functioning. Many bloggers have said they will no longer comment on blogs with this feature. I am not going to do that, but I won't try more than twice. Please check in your settings and turn it off! It serves no useful purpose.
