  1. I've been lurking. I love the subject you've chosen.

    Crazy as it sounds I cleaned my desk yesterday.

    Your posts come to me in the morning the day after.

    1. Glad you're lurking, and glad you de-lurked! And a clean desk is a sign of a sick mind, which is why mine looks like it does =)
