    Is it ok for me to announce this at my place, JB? My traffic has been slowwwwwwww. yawn.

  • The Insane Writer 2.9.07

    The Australian -The Heart of the Nation.

    Hi Kim;
    Cool way to promote your blogs! I've subscribed to your feed as well. I already have you added to everything else, LOL.

    And you read 'The Australian' of course!

    PS: Can a person choose who they wish for the portrait?! Say one of their kids, for instance?

    Take care;

  • Kim 2.9.07

    haha Colin
    first cab off the rank......and the questions will get more difficult :-D

    Gosh JB

    It wouldn't be fair for me to play along since I already have one of your fabulous portraits, but it's still fun to read all the Q & A :-)

  • Anonymous 2.9.07

    Dang, this slippery stuff follows me around sometimes, doesn't it?

    I'm ahight, kiddo- really. I've been distracted with other "things" but those things are temporary things, I promise. I've got my eyes on everyone I care about and call 'm'friend'.

    Hey, I've already got you as a link on my blog, Blog-Blond! And I'm faving you now! However, since I'm traveling most of the month of September and will be an erratic blogger (and reader of blogs) and oftentimes away from a computer, I won't be able to enter every day! Sob! I'd love one of your beautiful portraits...perhaps you could run this contest again? :-) Anyways, I'll contribute for today: The Australian
