Thanks Roy

My thought was Mark was being cheeky in return.

Your avatar is still mezmerizing me.

Of course I like anything that's shiny or moves.

I googled Reuters to find out and discovered.

"Reuters is the world's leading source of intelligent information"

Which begs the question . . .

I have been FW 6 times so far. I anticipate a 7th soon! Certainly, I am no more qualified than anyone else to be Featured Writer.

Nick

Congratulations and well deserved!

But you've written a good number of stories and seem to be alive.

Please explain.

I am sorry but I have no explanation Victor. Even Mark, the proprietor of the site, seems to offer no reason as to why some and not others.

Victor,

It is supposed to be entirely random. In fact, the system was stuck on the letter A for about six months (so we had the same ten featured writers over and over).

I've been in the position three times, but I've been here almost five years.

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

Best reply yet, thought there might be a logic to it.

Right On, but then don't think I've made it yet, but then, I
still am having trouble finding myself....shrink said maybe I should consider a long cruise on the open sea to clear my mind......I'll wait and see what Buck advises...
