  6. I LUV YOU ELLEN! We have so much in common...lol! will email you. Lots of lil hugs!

  7. Love the list and you ard brave to put it "out there". I am in agreement with SO MANY. things. Maybe because we are both CA women and close in age, I think. Anyway, I admire your work and love your YouTube so don't give that up! I am going to make a list but since I am not a public figure , it will stsy in my journal.

  8. Just thought I would let you know why the bicycle in your TP album is called a penny farthing. In Englan and Australia before decimal currency we had a penny (which was the largest coin) and a farthing (worth a quarter of a penny) and the smallest coin. So hence someone decided the bike looked like a penny and a farthing. Love your work, thanks for the videos.
