I must add that when I started this blog, (my daughter Ann Marie took a class) I had no idea that I would find such wonderful women, with such ideas and information.  I keep my bloglist limited to under 100 so that I can read and comment on most of your posts.  I'm amazed at the number of young Mom's with children hanging on them day and night, that they can find time at a computer.  I'm amazed at the more mature older  who aren't afraid of the internet and dive right in with wisdom and ideas too.

I have enjoyed my first year.  Please comment and let me know if you make a list of your favorite things.
