      Hello Joan, and Carol if she’s reading.

        Well I figured that she knows that you have shared this and she knows that I have shared this because when you mentioned somebody’s blog URL as you have done in her post it gives them a ping back and shows up in their comment section so she is aware of me and if she wants to get in touch with me she is welcome to do so.
