The Dixie Chicks and their Grammys...I suspect a political statement in their wins.

Hi!

Sorry for being MIA for so long.

It's good to see you're doing well. Take care and wishing you a happy and healthy 2007.

Later!

Phoenix:
I see where you are coming from, you could be right :)

Sorry for my lack of comment at your site. I'm so busy that I'm hardly in the blogosphere like I once was.

Furkids:
That’s okay I understand how busy things can be, talking from my own experience.

Take care and again, have a Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year.
