    Hello Ramona and friends,

    I’m so glad I finally made it on time — and I’d like to say once more how much I like being among all you creative bloggers!

    Oh, one more thing — it seems I was a little hasty, and I failed to add my domain extension on my first attempt, that is #69. Would you be kind enough to delete the link, Ramona? The correct, working link is #70. Thank you so much!
