  1. Thanks for nominating me! You make Power Points for fun? I can't even make them when I have to! You must be pretty talented with the program by now. Yay, another Dr Who fan! My favourite is Nine, but Ten runs him pretty close.

    1. I used to make PowerPoints for fun, but my interest in that has waned. I did get pretty good with PowerPoint, but there are some things I still don't know. A fellow Whovian! Even though Ten is my favourite, I still do like Nine.
