I just have to say that your Squidoo pages rock!! I’ve barely put my toe in the water over there, but I am learning from you every day!

Aw, thanks! I’ll be honest, Squidoo is my playground. I don’t always know what I’m doing there, but it’s fun to create a page here and there when there’s something I want to talk about but don’t want to build a website for.
