"If falling in love is anything like learning to spell, I don't
want to do it. It takes too long." --Glenn, age 7
Blender of Love Digest November 1998

The Months Grow Cold...

...but the Blender's still hot. The number of front page hits has definately been on an upward swing.

The Blender Board is becoming a meeting place for a group of regulars. I'm already looking into some real-time-chat possibilites-- stay tuned!

Some great poems this month (including one charmer by a six-year-old), a ramble on saying those three most dangerous words, a review of a wonderful Paul Simon song, some interesting paintings (in Heart on Sleeve Corner) -- in short, everything the Blender Audience has grown to love, and then some.
