    I think I might be the first commenter at your new digs.
    Yeah, blogger’s repeted downtime is really annoying. Hope things go better here at your new home.

    Here’s a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine, and a roll of quarters. That’s supposed to mean you should never be hungry, thirsty, or poor in your new home. But seeing as it’s a blog, then all this stuff is virtual – sorry 🙂

    Now, as for all these 100+ things lists… sometimes that’s a lot of information to hit us in one shot. Though #31 stood out. And so, thank goodness for #32.
