  1. Hello to the king of Philly Future. Thank you for your continued effort on the site. I have found many interesting blogs to read on the blogroll.

    I am writing to ask you to change the URL and title of my site. (again) I decided to delete Phillies’ Jessica due to my desire to start fresh. My new site is simply called Jessika’s Journal
    and I hope that you will include it on your blogroll when you have time.

    Oh, and thank you for the sympathetic entry regarding the loss of my mother. I appreciated it very much.
