Even an ounce of tea is too much for my own good. Most of the stuff makes me gag.

I have the same problem with coffee.

This is great : )

I envy your ability to play on stage--I love music, but I have quite limited ability in terms of creating my own.

Glad you had fun with this. Have a wonderful weekend : ) !!!!!!!

What a great way to get to know you! My husband is an actor. Which play are you appearing in?

I visited you Starfish business page. It looks very nice. If I can't manage to get a decent site together for my family's sword rental company, I may come to your business!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Yours is lovely and I'll definitely be back. :)

KLo - My guitar work is limited, but I've learned to play within that. Focus on what you CAN do.

LG - The play is called Soapsud Island and I've only just joined the drama group that's putting it on. I've got just over a week left to learn the lines and get the feel for the part...Eeeek!
