Say it with

While The Sunshine State
may be getting brighter and more colorful, Kansas remains in its
black/white phase of the year. Have you seen the new movie,
Nebraska? I heard one reviewer ask the director why he shot it

shot in Nebraska too!)
quite black/white, but without a lot of color, yet still lovely in
it's own way.
GOOD WISHES from designer Janet Clare, was inspired by
"winter on the coast".
