Elayne, could I work on this after May 11th -- too much going on right now to really give this the time it deserves. I am writing posts the night before, so not too organized. Thank you for thinking of me and I will check back.

I believe this is a way we recognize each others blogs and writing. I would imagine it can be done anytime. Best wishes with the rest of the challenge. Feel free to leave me a message if or when you participate in the nomination.
