Doesn't all that green look good? I say YES!

By the way, I don't remember reading you have a twin, but perhaps I have forgotten. that has always been a fascination of mine. Unfortunately, in my younger years, had I been a twin, I can see having used that for all kinds of mischievous things. Perhaps God was taking care of me by not having let me be born a twin.

By the way, as I am typing this I finally got the joke/play on words in the last title. Yes, I am a little slow.

I love the weekly goals. I'm going to start looking at putting some together and following up on them at the end of the week. Awesome!

I am in full agreement with Steve. All that green is just great!

I also have a fascination with twins. We have them in our family but they are male/female, not identical. When I was in university I wrote a paper about twins that had been separated at birth and met later in life. Some of their lives were almost identical as well. Very interesting stuff.

Wonderful job on your goals. You are really getting things done.
