She once drew my blood sample and then sent me an official “caryotype” of my genetic code, pointing out that one of the chromosomes showed a high level of THC, which accounted for my persistant mellowness.

    • My “About” is over on the top right; you probably were looking for it on the left. Thank you for the award, but I have decided to refrain from blog awards as much I appreciate them and feel honored by them. Thank you so much. Hopefully some of those who commented here will check out your blog.

    Well, with that many really sharp writing tips, it should take you awhile to wear them out…..especially if you are using a word processor 🙂

    Reading your posts is always a study in writing tips anyway.
    How many posts do you have now? “Way” more than 20 😉
