  1. Hi Linda, I don't know if its on bloggers end or my computer but I am having trouble with your email link, not getting through.

    Mind if I borrow your idea...this week / this month?

  2. Feel free. I don't think I'm the only one who thought of this theme. There are several others who do this or something similar.

    Now I'm off to see what the problem is with my email link. Thanks for letting me know there's a problem.

  3. Holly, If you don't mind, see if the email link works for you know. It opened a blank browser page when I tried it but it also opened a new message in my Windows Mail. I got rid of the blank browser page so maybe it will work correctly now.

  4. Uh oh, I think its my computer and I haven't figured it out yet...but I probably have my firewall set to PARANOID!! :O (that really shouldn't block that tho) excuse #1-I know I need a new computer anyway-haha its only 10 yrs old! update- if I right click on you email link and paste it to my email 'to' line, I am good to go.
    ??? Yea, I am in the market for a new computer anyway!
