Ok- I just want to clear something up here... when have you sang a solo? Where was I? Why didn't I get to watch?

I was wondering the same thing. I know I would have remembered that. Is there a video, kind of like the Spanish dancing in Guys and Dolls. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. We need to find that VHS tape.

Hi Libby!!!

So glad you left a little comment! Yes, I too really appreciate Allison on Intervention. I know they are all terribly sad, but sometimes it makes me laugh a little bit in a wrong way. I have to admit, last night, Jan did make me laugh sometimes. But when there are little kids involved, that's when it especially gets to me!!!
