Todd, can you fix the typo in my name in the post? I'm flattered to be taken for pioneering physician Elizabeth Blackwell, but I'm Elizabeth Foxwell.

Todd Mason said...

I suspect that is an attainable goal! Sorry about that. My Apple machine still wants to fight, distractingly, with Blogspot (including spell-"correcting" the name of the site).

Elizabeth Foxwell said...

Thanks, Todd! Isn't autocorrect a pain?

Todd Mason said...

Not to mention the bad interface between Apple machines and Blogspot generally. I've never liked Apple machines...incentive to haul my PC down to the local fixing shop.

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

Now that's what I call a bumper crop - thanks Todd, amazing company to be in.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks for contributing so consistently, Sergio...you certainly add to every week's effort. I have to wonder how this many particularly discourage anyone from seeking out every one of them...
