It was 1:30 A.M. and I'd been roused from my sleep by the need for a late-night snack when I heard what I first took to be thunder. One huge boom! But there was no more after that and I realized what I had heard was a car crash. Looking out my win

205 articles. Not bad. If you have time and want to keep any of your articles I am told we will be given opportunity but since time is not on our side I suggest backing up your articles ASAP. Good luck with your writing and hope to see you around the web on some other writing site.

Hey, thanks for the suggestion! I finally got my speedy new desktop PC hooked up, so I can get on PP without all the lags.

Thank you, Deb, for your kind note. I had never heard that song sung by Sting ... Heard it back in the 1960s from Neil Diamond, and also Petula Clark. I first really enjoyed it when I heard Barbara Streisand sing it on a Live show back 4 years ago. But his rendition by Sting is . Hauntingly beautiful. .Tonight, I listened to the words, and understand it more at 60, then I ever did as a teen.

I am following you now. For some reason I thought I already was, but then I looked and realized I wasn't. So now I am. Hope your having a good day.

Deb. You're in luck. There ARE several Colombian restaurants in Northern Ohio.

Thanks. I was pretty sure that's how you'd feel.

Hi! I'm reading your recent article on tomatoes and notice a sentence you might want to read aloud and edit at the beginning of the second paragraph. It's a bit like a double negative and I think you can easily fix it by changing the phrase "no trouble" to "any trouble." I make mistakes like this all the time and miss them at first when proofreading. If you ever see me write something that doesn't make sense to you, I hope you will tell me.

Everything is fine, thanks for asking. Always smiling but still busy at the moment. The odd comment is all I have time for at the moment....and boy, are my comments odd! lol
