By the way, if you’d like to read more of my writing, I have authored three books:

Live Happily on Less — Sensible, realistic ideas on how to stretch the money you have, further, as opposed to working more and longer hours

Grammar Despair — Quick, simple solutions to common writing and speaking issues

And my Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson, has published a DVD for people who want to learn art:
