    thanks for your comment at my blog. I hate that I can't back with my friends who commented to me since Friday. I just am doing what I can at Joe's laptop. it's really cool to think YOU think of me as mentor. (never for free verse though. haha) I appreciate your doing my blog and always commenting back. Luv, Andrea

    this is SO cool. It reminded me of Forest Gump and the box of chocolates line! Yes, we have the millinium of peace before us BUT a lot of nasty stuff is gonna happen first, and that's the scary part I am not looking forward to, arlid. Already you can see so many families suffering just to keep afloat.You think, Can it get worse,and sadly, I think the answer is yes! thanks for your comments. LUv, Andrea
