 Don’t you feel rich to have a garden city on a coin?  Perhaps, that’s my other reason for loving our local currency.

        I’m excited to hear more about your new company. Congratulations! I’m just glad you are doing well. I’d missed you! Thanks for the compliment. Have a great week! Take care! 🙂 P. S I purchased that album. I love the music! 🙂

        Sydney always feel so embarrass to express himself that he really seldom read every single post of all his followers.
        Sydney always felt neck and shoulder so stiff and numb.
        ‘You can’t go on this way! Blogging has affected you daily, please slow down and do within your ability!’ This was what my body told me!
        That was why I lately focus more on my primary job and my hobby reading.
        Marsha, you are really a very sweet lady that Sydney will never forget you!
        Talk next time! Take care! 🙂

        Nobody reads every single post. I have 412 up on this blog alone. Who has that kind of time? I don’t either. I just read as much as I can, and comment a little bit when I can. Then my favorites write to me, and we talk through my archives notification box. You are definitely one of my favorites. I don’t get your lovely music or pictures through this little blue text box, though! 🙂

        Thanks for sharing how you handle those Blog, Marsha.
        I still need some time to figure out how to balance my job and blogging.
        No matter what, you are always my sweet lady!
