  1. Hey Shannon! thanks so much for the awesome header, I LOVE it.

    These stats are amazing, you kind of remind me of Kainu quoting stuff like this! :)

  2. That's scary stuff. Wonder what it'll be in 2010? Or now, for that matter!

  3. It is the same now. I hate that I see this stuff with work everyday. Makes me want to move to the far out country where the worst thing that happens is cow tipping...unfortunately I think these things are everywhere now.

    Cute Header on Eryn's page by the way. Now that i have my computer back I need to work on my photoshop to possibly make a personalized header.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a note!
