  1. Hey Mrs. H,

    Since you invited comments about your spelling and grammar...

    21. encourage should be encouraged

    23. todays should be today's (it is possessive)

    Thanks for posting. I think your blog is great, and it gives me another site to add to my daily list of sites I visit. I especially love any and all pictures. Keep adding those!

    PS- I have a little consulting business if you or your friend needs an editor. ;)

  2. Hey Cara,

    Good eye! The list was written by a blogger named Andrew. Here's his email:

    Maybe you can pass the corrections on to him. From the tone of his blog, he may really be delighted to bring on an editor!

    I'll remember your editing skills in the future too! Thanks for keeping up with the blog!
