  1. OH Jann,
    Thanks for the "shout-out" and I love your responses. We have so much in common. We could really hang out together and have fun. First, we would go to a Mexican restaurant, we could have some lovely wine, great intellectual/spiritual conversation and then top it all of with a Bourne Identity movie.

    But the best part of your response was the "night night part." It brought tears to my eyes. Your heart is so big and I am sure you have been what Dr. Maya Angelou would call a "community mother." That is a role to be very proud of -- and it is no less wonderful than having been a biological mother.

    Hugs Hugs

    P.S I am teaching at my LSS tonight.
