  1. Hello there Martha girl : )
    I find this interesting too .. can't help but read about it when I happen across it .. usually looking for something else then forget what it was and it becomes the memory game all over again ? Jeez !
    This was fun : ) Thanks !

  2. Hiya Joy! Hope you got my email. And hope you and all your gang are doing well.

  3. I am one of those people that have a cusp birthday. At least I think that is what it called. Depending on the horoscope I am either a Virgo or a Libra. (Usually Virgo) So I have never taken it seriously since there is no consensus on where I belong lol.

    Surprisingly though, blue is on of my favorite colors and that is on both. But sadly for Virgo my body part is intestines. (Yuck!):(

  4. I never take these things seriously, either. But it can be fun.
