John and Gavin:

You are welcome.

Andy B. said...

Thank you Allan.
I thought one had to send you a link in order to get listed. And here I find myself listed, anyway!
You're the best!

Allan R. Bevere said...


Glad to list you. It is much easier on me if you send me a link to the post you would like included' but I do peruse the blogs. So unless you email me a link, there is no guarantee you will be included.

All emailed links are much appreciated.

Michael said...


I keep forgetting to send my stuff to you, but I'm still grateful for your hard work in keeping this ministry going. Lots of great stuff out there!


Greg Hazelrig said...

Thanks Allan. And keep up the good work.

Again, I'm surprised and pleased to find that you thought enough of my post to include it. Not only was it included this week, but you gave it a "best of" recognition! I'm humbled.

I really appreciate your hard work. Where do you find the time to do the extra reading?!

Thanks, Allan!

Allan R. Bevere said...
