    THX for re-adding breakfast!! I've been following over 800 days!

    I've had several people ask me what I make my masks from: emoticon 5-19-16 The masks are made of a thing called "plaster tape"- paper bags & starch. Some also have celastic... a product similar to fiberglass. Thanks for asking! emoticon

    Thanks for your cheer for my daughter Julia on her Master's. Yeah, we are a pretty happy bunch. She is the one that needed encouragement and cheer from day one. It's become such a natural now that she will actually stop negative thoughts herself.
