    • Cynthia, thanks! So glad we’re back in touch. I looked at your blog again last night, and it looks great. We’ll have to talk again soon, swap ideas, suggestions, troubleshooting tips. Making my way through WordPress is a bit of a challenge. The various media, widget, and page buttons don’t always read my mind. 🙂

  1. Great start! Can’t wait to follow the toast. Hope you will add a travel section and join me next summer for some adventures south of the border.

  2. Lucy – Great to discover your blog! Your background and your interests will keep me intrigued for a long time, I’m sure. Let’s get together to talk about photography. Best wishes! – Jerry
