  4. Joy, you're reading so much content that fits my themes! Celtic, mystery, even colours (Gentle Spectrums).... Other than enticing you to link what you're already reading in my parlours, I am here to thank you immensely. I am receiving as many visitors from you, as 'A Novel Challenge' is sending and sure need the advertising. Grateful to you, here in snowy Manitoba! :)
