MIM #37

Hi there my wonderful blog friends, how are you?

Did you all survive the great Blogger Meltdown? I did,but only barely, lol.

I've still been having trouble signing in, signing out, commenting and one of my posts is still missing, but Blogger assures me that it will all return to normal soon.

I tell you what, technical difficulties aside, YOU GUYS ROCK!! Wow, last week's MIM was just out of this world. Another record breaking number of entries for us. Thank you so much to all of you who took part. Sorry to anybody who we were unable to comment on, there were quite a few links that were not working due to the Blogger situation at the time.

Congratulations to this weeks featured blogger and random commentor.
