I recently recieved the following email. We're listed in Chapter 7: How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Modem the Ways.

This brings up many questions! Did we get mentioned for the link to 'find a friend' on the main site? Or because so many of our poets have found each other here? Or is it because all the love poems on the site have inspired a rash of dating and relating?

Any way, it's wonderful! Next maybe we'll get mentioned on Oprah! (I've sent the letter, let's hope she reads it soon!)

Considering the traffic that passes through the main site, I'd bet that they've had a high percentage of responses coming from our Passionate world here...... ....How could they help but notice us...

You're awesome, Ron......

Personally, I think on-line flirting is absurd...LOL  (I wonder if this means I'm a "complete idiot"?)  Btw, you'll all be invited to mine and Gennifer's wedding...maybe we'll get married via internet video conferance.  What do ya say, Femme?

Too cool, Ron.

As unfamiliar with flirting as I am, I still consider this a great honor, an acknowledgement of how well we get along together and the harmony we promote!!!!!
