      Writing already gives me too much joy. How much more if people will notice your write-ups/articles. I was busy with numbers for the past decade, glad my friend which I consider a brother and fellow hubber here ignited my passion in writing again. Being one of the top ten culled from more than 2500 authors is already a big achievement I have had carved out in my entire career as a writer hehehe. Thanks ProCW & the HubNuggets Team. You just put me on top of the world now... Tender Love and Care to all of you that comprise the ProCW & the HubNuggets Team, More Power and God Bless... I will just cross my finger that this humble masterpiece will make it to the Hubnugget... Thanks...

      ProCW, I am amazed. I opened all of the Hubs and can truthfully say I learned from each and every one. Frankly, I was surprised by the abundance of fresh ideas-- even on what are, in my experience anyway, well-worn pathways. Great job picking out these gems. And yes, I did end up with a favorite... not to diminish the others.

      Good Saturday morning exercise. Again, thanks.
