Thanks for the PR, Mary. I love the illustration! How did you do it? BTW--The link shows up blue to me. It showed light grey to you because you've visited my site. Visited links usually show up a different, lighter color, and the default one for your blog template might be light grey.
The link is blue for me. It's probably gray for you because that its "visited" state.
simplify--that's always good advice.
