Jeremy Thanks for sharing, Sheri! Moby Dick is quite the awesome book. I haven't read it for years, but maybe I'll read it again soon.

-Jeremy :)

Jeremy Hi Sheri!

If you don't mind sharing--I was wondering, what's your favorite novel of all time?

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous friendships, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

-Jeremy :)

Daniel Sheri, I see you are from Margaret Mitchell's city. She wrote about it and I believe she was killed on Peach tree Street. I dread the bypass there. I've never made it through without missing my exit because of all those lanes and all those big trucks in the way. Good luck.

Pia Hi Sheri! Are you going to SIBA in Atlanta? I'll be there.
