Great review on Henry VIII! I can't seem to leave a comment or feedback at the moment. There seems to be some trouble with the site. I'll check again later. I reported the error to Lunch already too.
November 01, 2010
I fixed it Pam! Not sure what was causing all the errors...maybe the initial post into the Word program, which we don't want to do. The second reply to my original comment shows the correct greeting and spacing, but just use the one I've sent to your email. :)

Congrats on earning the Louisa May Alcott badge. I'm going to read your review about the author now.

I loved your QT for C.S. Lewis, but it disappeared before I could leave a comment for it. Are you editing it again? Let me know when you repost it. I want to add a comment and give it a thumbs up. :)
August 25, 2010
Adrianna, I tried to get Lewis' epitaph for Joy on the Quick Tip but the lines all ran together, so they didn't make sense.Kept trying, hence deletes! Your interest is much appreciated. The new QT on CS is posted!
September 01, 2010
Ah!! I wondered what was going on. The ones I saw all looked fine with no lines running together. I wonder if it was a glitch with Lunch. Thanks for the head's up, though. I'm going to go read and comment on your QT right now. :)
September 01, 2010
Adrianna, I think the glitch was probably with my computer if you could see the epitaph to Joy correctly!
September 02, 2010
Yeah, could be. Don't you hate it when computers do silly things? :-P
