Everyone in the cafe yesterday thought we were nuts. Walking in and out with our laptop, trying to get on to the local wireless connection and then finally accosting the waitress,
"Does your computer go online?"
".....I mean, does it get the internet?"
"I see. It's just a cash register, is that right?"
Like a junkie without a fix, we watched anxiously as the seconds ticked by without being able to see what was happening online. Then we called Jill and she told us. She also typed up the post at 5:15pm.
Again, this was a tremendous showing by all involved and we want to thank every contestant for sharing and making our days brighter. In keeping with tradition, every finalist will get a prize, while Cristy and Dave & Jen will get a squiggle to commemorate their victory. We will also be sending a squiggle to Melanie for winning her category since the MacPlanter really should have been in the DIY division. Cheers to all! MGR
