  1. Hi Michael and congrats on those lovely awards!

    I'm recovering from a couple of bugs so I potter on the computer and then crash out on the sofa for a bit.

    We've had 3/4 flowing fonts entries in so far. I'm so looking forward to yours, too.

  2. Hi Michael,

    isn't the atmosphere around the Crusaders just fantastic!!

    I'm just loving the people that i have met as well.

    I believe we are in the same Crusader groups as well. Have written a welcome up on my blog and have listed all the group 7 crusaders in the blog roll. (easier to keep tabs of everyone)

    have a great day and happy writing,

    Constance or pixie or sarah i answer to all

  4. Hi Michael,
    I'm a new friend too (*waving*) because I'm following your feed in Google Reader. We need to figure out how to see how many people do that with our blogs. It is so much easier to keep track of everyone we follow that way.
    Anyway, congrats on the awards!
    Vicki
