  1. I like your answers. Fun. Simple. I have heard of a few of these blogs, but certainly not all of them. I know the UBC is almost over, but it has been a fun ride and I am sad to see it go. Maybe I will see you again in the next one!

  2. Nice answers. I've enjoyed reading all these posts from people and learning more about them. Thanks for the tag; I'll probably respond in a couple of days or so.
