  25. A friend had an ABC challenge that went through the whole alphabet several years back. It was fun to look through my photographs and see if I could beat it.

    (Do an "ABC" search on my blog and maybe it will come up.)

  37. Some of my most favourite things are listed here Betsy - you've made me very happy today! As its Summer here we have apricots by the bucket loads. One of MOTH's deep dark secrets is that he loves to make preserves, not a whisper to the blokes down at the Rowing Club though!! He cooked up a storm on the weekend & we have 4 dozen jars of yummy apricot preserves sitting in the pantry now. Any of you wonderful recipes would be greatly appreciated to make the most of them.
