Update:

Thank you for your comments on my SparkPage about your astrology chart. I wasn't sure how much acceptance I would have since that's quite different from the prevailing tone of many of our members, so I am especially grateful for the support. I seem to have gained 2 pounds but I'll wait to see if it comes off right away, in which case it will be gone Take care and have a great day!

Thanks for the lovely blog comment, it's so nice to get out into the garden at last though the weather hasn't been too good of late and everything is a month or so behind their usual flowering time.
