"In my limited observations, men have 'That Chick,' but for women,
half the guys they've slept with are 'That Guy.'"--Martin Frankel
Blender of Love Digest November 2001

Chilly Times

It's still scary times but we're getting through them together. In the USA it's a bit dark and chilly but we have faith born of experience that there will be Spring again.

Good month for creative works, lots of concrete imagery and I always like that.

Cool feature this month, a German artist covering a post office in love letters...quit a sight.

Plus, the blender made a million and a half frontpage hits!
Read, love, enjoy,

--Kirk, Blender-Keeper
