I loved the PDF converter, been looking for something exactly like that. Thank you for digging up that link.

Now, before I was recessionized, I would sent you a hundred, no...two hundred bucks for such a useful find. (Well, I woulda wanted to.) I guess now, you'll just get a not so useful, but sincere, smile.

Best Regards, Galen

Really enjoyed the link about first-person narratives... This one directly applies to my WIP.

Karen Walker said...

Amazing story about babies switched at birth and finding each other 56 years later. I saw them interviewed - they've actually joined families.
