Who are 7 people you're going to tag? everyone who wants to do it.

I like your piece of advice. I try to live by that as well and let others help out. It's not an easy thing to do but I know it's worth it.

"blouse"...you must be getting old. :) I think your hidden talent is probably cooking/baking, although maybe that's not hidden.
