Hi Helen
I'm a 4MA participant too. Wow, have I learned about a lot of mysteries from that group. Nice now to put a face with your name.

I noticed you because you look a lot like a friend (and fellow retired teacher). I'm pretty sure she's in Arizona, though!
We enjoy some of the same authors. I always enjoy Mark Billingham at mystery cons as well. He's quite a comic.

Hi Helen!
My mother and brother used to live not far from Newcastle so it's an area of the world I have visited frequently.
I love the seafood and the wine. Great combination.

Well I think you did pretty darn good. Mind you I don't know just what your goal was but I think you got close. Well done. Maybe I will try me one of them kits.

Yeah, it's amazing how good plastic surgery is these days. Of course, I could only afford the DIY kit that was on special, so didn't end up with quite the model looks I'd hoped for. :)

Hi Helen! You look different today? New hair do? Oh wait -- you have a whole new face. Very nice indeed (I cheated - read 4MA first otherwise I would likely not remember to notice given a distinct lack of sleep last night)
