Wow, this has been a month of heavy posting (for me) so far! This will be my 51st post of the month of November, or an average of 3.4 posts per day. I realize that is not a lot compared to someone like Ben (One Mile At A Time). I mean, he does like 50 per week! But, I do thank all of you that have contributed in the comments and read these posts so far. It always helps to push me to write more and help as much as I can. Thanks for reading!
