Things of the Day

 Party Idea
I decided that I would post this here to save up on doing several posts. Una has an idea of what we can do for our party! Please comment and tell us what you think!

Hey, how about we get together a group of bloggers and you get all their email addresses, then you start a story by writing half a page on Microsoft Word and then we pass it on until it's finished.
