    I’m Minnesota! (Well and my friends I share with…) I miss you so much I singlehandedly put my current state on the map. We should talk.

    @LadyG: Yes, indeed. Though it is also good for picture of me with my twin.

    I linked to a couple of your posts during discussions on Homeschool Alumni – so that is where some of those those came from. :)

    @Janna: Yes, thank you very much for that!

    I sneaked onto to HSA and followed the conversation. That was a lot of fun. It actually became a moral lesson for me: Always respond like the author is reading.

    Haha! That is funny! I wasn’t sure if the forum was blocked to non-members or not.

    Ah, but the forum is blocked to non-members ;-)

    Ha ha! Yes indeed. Included in my mystical powers is the ability to fill out a registration form. I’m quite something.

    Okay, so that is what I wanted to know. Whether you registered or looked via a friend’s profile. ;)

    So, I know I’m just one of the numerous visitors from Oregon, but I at least get credit for telling Janna about the blog…. ;)

    @Kathrina, It looks like you’ve tapped into one of my favorite questions: Would you rather have influence or recognition?

    It looks like we’ve found our Open Query for the week!
