What is there about seeing a shooting star that makes us feel like kids again? And yes I made a wish.

Free small painting

HELP, I need some blog code work done.
Feed for my blog not working.

A free small Postcard from Detroit painting for helping me with my blog.


I have been getting emails from subscribers that say they are not getting my blog posts.

Feedburner says my posts are invalid! Been working for 5 years but  now it doesn't, I looked at this and have no idea what needs to be done.

If anyone knows code or html and could help straighten this out there is a free painting from my available paintings for their effort.

Please respond in the comments or by email



Thank you, Stephen
