welcome to the list candy!
I hope that you find all of the answers that you're looking for here on the list. Just a little about myself, my name is Marsha, I'm working my third guide, from guide dog foundation, she is a black cross, and we live near Philadelphia.
I'm the moderator of this list so if you need any help please don't hesitate to let me know.
Happy posting!
