    Seems like lately a lot of folks I know have been developing an awful lot of character, myself included. We must be in those currents. Thanks for always putting things in perspective, Maureen!

    WOW, what a spectacular picture–a truly prize winning photograph–did you get special consideration from the Divine to shine that golden light just at that moment on that beautiful, sleek, sweet boat?
