  1. Thanks for the tag! You're right -- it was hard finding people who hadn't been tagged already!

  2. Okay, I'm tagged, but I'm afraid I'm going to cop out on this, as I'm finding it hard to find the time to read the blogs, let alone compile some articles for my own. Sorry, Janet, but I'm sure you understand. Regards, Brett
