    I understand that it is not your responsibility to create my traffic.
    I understand it is not your job to make me rich or famous.
    I understand that it is not your job to write essays or poems of quality.

    What you have given me is a forum to write about the things that interest me and hopefully a few others. You have held me accountable to achieve the standard you have set and though I don't always hit the mark, I believe it is achievable. I consider it a privilege to write on this site and I thank you for creating an environment that welcomes everyone. Cheers!

            Thank you... I feel that I should stop talking now... funny how you feel empowered when no one cares, but if you have 10 ppl's approval, you feel something akin to shame. lol

        Im a little embarrassed... I didn't realize Id been given that award. If you hadn't said that, I might never have known... I would have gone to my deathbed without knowing I had once been the queen of a kingdom of words. I can think of no higher honor. smile

        Does this mean I have to marry paradigmsearch?

          I was wondering about that, too.

          Hmmm... This is worth contemplating... Unfortunately, I vaguely recall you have already been snagged by someone else.

            My alter ego is married, but batgirl is up for grabs. She looks way better in a utility belt than I do.

              ...and so began the Batgirl Paradigm.   

              Kind of sounds like an episode name for the Big Bang Theory.

    I am fond of HP as well. They really are a kinder, gentler website. I'm trying to come up with a batch of new, interrelated hubs as we speak.

    Come to think of it, I haven't posted my bootlegged pic of HP staff on their annual retreat in awhile.

      Can you imagine if you were on a walk in the forest and you just looked up and saw that? I would scream so high dogs couldn't hear it.

        It would depend upon if they were six feet tall or 10 inches-- I think they are cute. If you look closely enough, you can see that some of them are smiling-- like the HP staff.

          They're smiling cause they finally know what they're going to have for Thanksgiving.

      I knew I was a winner. I have stood and looked in the mirror every day for over 30 years and said, "Beth, you are a winner, you're smart and good and dogginit ppl like you." I knew one day it would pay off!
