  • You all know the saying 'There are no free lunches'. I have always hated it because I believe strongly that there is. Not all people do good to gain something. Today I got proof that it really is true.

    I don't even know where to start. Yesterday there was a letter in my inbox from Dave saying I was anonymously sponsored for Cowbird Citizenship, that I should log out and log in again and it would work. I didn't believe it but I tried (of course, we are all so curious) and it didn't work. So, I wrote him back saying it was surely a joke! In the morning he answered me assuring it was not a joke but he had made a mistake and I should try again. I did an sure enough - I have all the features I didn't have before.

    Now I am baffled! What did I do to deserve such generosity? I am deeply and utterly grateful and amazed and baffled (ah, said that already) and confused and I want to do or say something to this person who did that but I don't know who it is.

    So I am writing this to say you made my day! I have always believed people are generally good and now I got proof they really are. What more can I say? Nothing but to promise to write some stories that make you smile and though it has almost become a cliche - be there for you.

    I know it is cheesy but this song keeps playing in my mind ....but somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good... ;)

    A tear in my I I say - 'Love you all!'
