Holy Guacomole!!!
Where do I send my payment? (not a trick question)

Thank you for the mention! I really don't know what else to say. I'm speechless. It's very nice of you!!!

There are lots of good books out there. By 'good' people and 'bad' people. Life's too short. So I'm highlighting the Good People Who Write Good Books. Scratch that. They're *awesome* :-)
Come have a look!!!

Unfortunately, I am getting an error message when I try to open the link to Chris Eldin's. Can you take a look and try to fix? Thanks.
