    Good Day
    I’ve had a lot of weird commenters lately so it was such a relief to find out that you aren’t a spambot or overflowing with insane hatred, but merely a charming Canadian. Hooray for charming Canadians. You have a lovely blog. I was aware that the Earth wobbles, but I did not know the wobble had a name. That is so cool.
    If you would like me to add you to my blogroll, I would be happy to, but I warn you that I get some really odd guests in my Teahouse.
    Thanks again
    Winston

    Thanks for the compliment on the blog & the post. (However, I’m not Canadian.) You’re right, there are all sorts of peoples (& spam comments) out there. 🙂
