In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

Hey! Did this for kicks and grins. :) I'm an "Ingrid" That's funny b/c my mom wanted to name me Ingrid but my dad thought it was a dumb name so I got stuck with Jennifer. ;) If I ever publish anything I'm going to use Ingrid as my pen-name. ;) Off to post my results on my blog! :) About time I put something up there! ;)
