Algorithm or no algorithm, enjoy the attention the honor affords you, for you are indeed a wonderful poetess with a lovely eye for nature, sharp insight into humanity and a breathtaking command of poetic language. I applaud and congratulate you (and your amazing goldfinches)! Hugs ~ John

My very favorite flower...although I think it is really a "weed"!!! Can you imagine!!! But I love them anyway...and now, thanks to you, P T, I will think of them "dancing" as well as shining in the sun. Congrats on POTD, too.

Don't worry Maureen, I got POTD twice in a week, there's definitely something amiss.
