Seven things blah blah

oKAY, oKAY, I'll do it. (It's not like I had anything of substance to say anyhow... I need someone to come over here and kick my butt so I sit down and get some writing done this weekend.)

Anne: It is interesting how many of us don't know how to swim. I always think I am the only one.
