The Winner is...

First of all, thank you to everyone who entered and left such nice and helpful comments. I learned a lot and enjoyed finding a lot of new blogs to visit. Wow, there is a huge amount of talent and good hearted people in blogland! As I mentioned, I compiled all the entries into a document and cut them into strips.
The strips were thoroughly mixed.
 Cookie supervised this formal ceremony, as was appropriate for a tuxedo wearing cat.
Son Mark, a totally impartial judge who doesn't have a clue what Mom is up to but obliged me anyway, carefully selected one strip.

The winner is Barb from Barb's Heartstrokes! Yippee Barb!
I'm still receiving nice comments from people who are finding their way here and I appreciate that very much! Apparently all the sudden traffic crashed my follower gadget, though, so even though the gadget is still in place the thumbnails of followers is blank. Has anyone else had this happen?

Congratties to Barb!!! Yep... my followers icons went missing too... I think blogger has been upgrading things here and there... thus messing things for awhile... it will probably be ok in a few days...
