  1. So right. While I love all the tech stuff, sometimes it's just too much. I love how you made this "quick", but most of it is not. Ah, the irony of that which is supposed to save us time.

  3. This is PERFECT. From blogger to blogger, I thank you! I'd thought about taking April to just be outside, to turn my back on the Internet. But I did not. Maybe May? Thank you!! a.
