Yes I have. I only ran across it just recently. It's a lovely site too. In fact they have a whole list of their resource sites listed too. Everyone except my site. LOL

I saw those resources. I thought for sure you were listed. I suppose it comes with the territory! I must say, I did "borrow" your link for my side bar for December. Thanks for that.

And, Pam, I haven't forgotten about your note. I WILL be writing back!!!

Borrow away my friend! Anyone is welcome to pull any of my information and use it. It's all to be shared.

giggle.... I know you haven't forgot about me. It's a busy season for the blogging world and for our home life too. I'm pulled as thin as a string right now myself. I just hope this string don't break. lol
