  1. I always find something new in your “Finds” posts. This week, I clicked to look at British History Online, which I’d completely missed. Thank you for bringing it to our attention! Have a good weekend.

  2. Many thanks to you for your consideration of the post of”Possibilities.” It is appreciated!

    Jeff Record
