Thank you, laughter is not only the best medicine, it's the cheapest, and I take it religiously.

I am saving this ..Thank you! Hmm..how do you figure out the width of the longest text? Trial and error?

You are welcome. :) For starters, you could see how wide the graphic is that you want text centered below, and see if that longest text line is wider than that - sort of split the difference maybe if you need to. :)

BTW, I just sent you FR mail. :)

Thank you, Amy and Meg. I'm glad you like the solitude graphic (and the cute one I sent last night. I've gone through pages and pages of poems to fit that one, and so far - zilch! They're all sad, and that's not what we want. Sigh)

Meg, your graphic (#1838) with the lone figure is so pretty, so tranquil.

That's the one. It's more like a bowl than a vase.

This wasn't titled where I found it but it sure looks like a Venus Fly Trap to me.

Watching this again was as great as the first time I saw it.

I’ve probably seen it 5 times and I cried again today. He is absolutely awesome! I love the reaction from the audience and the judges.

Thanks for the link, Meg.

You haven’t had any objections so there’s no worry.

Personally, I can think of a couple of people that would make a superb Christmas present for.

I have a weird thing for carnivorous plants.

It has to do with the irony of vegetarians. I'm trying to cultivate an Audrey II who only eats them.
