      Nice to meet you Irina aka Kathie! You look more like an Irina, more European. Sounds like you have an interesting life with all the things you like...speaking three languages is quite an accomplishment.

      Girl you don't have any side-bar widgets on here. You most likely knew that though...lol. If I was going to give some tips, I would add some eBay and Amazon modules on here, with products use or are on your bucket list. But, I'm not giving any tips today, not me! ;)

      I wish that I had read this earlier. Here, I've been addressing you as Katie. It's really nice to meet the 'real' you. I think that you could probably come up with a lot more than 25 things people would like to know about you. hmmm let me see..... :
