Keep at it!! Congratulations :-)
Thanks to Stefan, who was the first blogger to add me to his blog list!
Congratulations Mark on two years of wonderful blogs and for sharing so many thoughtful comments on the blogs of others.The Federico da Montefeltro hat, now your hat, makes an excellent cake.
Thanks, Rosemary! I wonder now whether eating a hat is not unlike eating crow!

Dear Loi - Your comment brought a smile to my face; it's good to have you as a new blogging friend! Thanks.
Mark,My blog reading has slipped of late but I saw your post and wanted to wish you a happy anniversary. Welcome to the Terrible Twos when you may often question why it was you ever started a blog. The answer is you give us a five-minute vacation with each post and we learn something new with each little trip.Steve
Thanks, Steve! And when I visit your blog, I am always both inspired and visually refreshed.
