Hi Janice ~~ Good luck in the competitions my friend.
Thanks for your comments and I am glad the quotes made you feel better
Fifty is a great age so enjoy it.
Take care, Love, Merle.

Hi Merle,

Oh, I'm not competing, I'm going to be one of the author helping to put this on.

Thank you. I had been blue about turning fifty, but that joke helped. :)

Take care, my friend.

Oh, sounds interesting! I'm in. :D

I like your site, by the way. How did you manage to get that picture in the header with the text? I suppose I just need to fiddle with mine a little more.

Hi Jen,

That's great. Good luck.

As for the header, I bought the photos from fotolia, and messed around with them on photo bucket to get the lettering and size just right. After that I went into design and then to page elements and clicked on header to load it in.
