    Hi Andy,

    I stumbled across your blog through Lyndsay Rush’s blog. I am a “friend” of Lyndays. And by that, I mean, I know Evan Weatherford because my sister went to Belmont with him. He knows Lyndsay and well, its all a bit muddled from there. I’m a writer. She is a writer. I went to Africa, she went to Africa. Basically I’m convinced we would be friends if we knew each other. She is me, but cooler.

    Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I’m sure your mom is proud. Your blog is fantastic! I know this is random request, especially because I’m a friend 3 times removed from anyone you care about, but I just created my own blog on marketing (yawn, its for my master’s program) and I wanted to know how to link my blog to twitter, facebook and Digg, like you have so smartly done on yours. The problem is that I use wordpress. I’m looking for suggestions or help from a devilishly handsome (does flattery work?), kind Christian man (no? perhaps guilt?)…

    If you have any hints, email me on Facebook: Leah Farr, Harrisburg PA.

    Thanks! And thanks for the entertaining musings!

    Before you think I have nothing to do at this wee hour, I just want to preface this by saying that your blog oddly came up pretty high in a google search for a seemingly unrelated question … More on that later (if you care to ask). So since I spent some time reading through some of your posts this weekend….I was intrigued (even before reading the “about me” section). And yes, I mistook your name for that Bravo host…the “other Andy”. But I digress…back to the intrigue..tell me, is there a blog where you write what lead you on this path and how you got such courage and commitment to pursue it?

    “It relies upon how eager they are, for the reason that their precious time is very brief, ” Dionne reported with the team’s truncated summer months pursuing the long postseason perform. “To settle together with recharge the main batteries is quite, very difficult, however they’ve already been through it [before]. Opinion, the main character-building of their last Stanley Mug was completely extraordinary. They may be comfortable. These are very, really certain. ”
