My original  ‘Cherie’s Place Thoughts’ as listed on my web page led to a series of (52 weeks) posts on my blog.  The series started in November 2008. The thoughts and photos that accompanied them are listed below.

I have provided links back to the posts and subsequent conversations in the comments threads.
