    You're welcome Barbara, I wanted to print a few with large font to bring with me, but I still didn't have a chance to replace my broken printer... :o(
    Anyone else could do it maybe? :-)

    Hi, I just found an interesting article on Harding, it had some good reviews. Thought we could take turns to read a paragraph or two if time permits? Otherwise it's interesting reading for ourselves...My goodness, I never suspected there were presidents as bad as Clinton and those other shameless congressmen!!! lol!

    Hi all, the fewer the more intimate, the conversation carries more uninterruptedly too, although I love also larger groups... :o)
