Can you tell me what is meant by "cloe"? I'm going to add this helpful list to the main site and I can't find anything called "cloe" in Google. Is that the name or is that a misspelling? Thanks! This is a great list! :)

Great list :) I think this could come in rather useful for some people! My only suggestion would be to merge it into one post, and maybe bold/underline the first part of each entry... Like so;

Courage: sweet pea, thyme

Sidenote: Star, I really like your new pic, it's rather cute :)

I'll see what I can do to spiff this up a bit. :fairy: If I mess up, you can take away my broom for a week. :wink2:


EDIT: There we go! Looks good to me. :D What do you think?

Thank you! :D
It was such a mess originally because when I first joined the forum, I was using a cell phone that limited how much I could post at a time. I've had access to a computer since last June, so I can make nicer looking posts now. I'm thinking of giving the same treatment to my Book of Shadows on here as well.
Thanks everyone for the feedback. I appreciate it. smiley_dance
