    Sure sounds and looks as if you’ve been productively busy and learning lots! It even seems s if the rains have held off! Take care.

    So wonderful to catch a glimpse of your week in Portland! It looks like the week was full of good work, interesting conversations, fellowship, and fun. Thinking of you all.

    This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep
    a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I
    was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
