Thanks for the link Dan - and for your comments on my blog. (My husband remarked after reading them that you're a smart guy btw).

Who would have thought that I'd ever be the author of a pro McDonald's blog post? I guess there's a first for everything!

Thanks for the link, Dan. Funny but "intriguing and easy is how my husband describes me." :-)

Dana, any time. Your blog gives readers a lot to chew over. And thanks for the compliment by proxy from your husband!

Charmian, happy to oblige and thanks for the chuckle. :)
