    They are a great set of wishes. I think Marilyn Monroe would be a fabulous dinner guest – just think of all the gossip she could spill! Hawaii is on my list too, I am fascinated by volcanoes!

      Thanks, she would certainly be able to clear up any conspiracy theories 🙂

    Don’t be shy – everyone is in the same boat really – just go up and introduce yourself and say hiya. Don’t be bothered if people haven’t heard of your blog – there are millions out there, and likewise, don’t feel bad if you don’t know them either!

      Great advice, looking forward to finding some new bloggers to follow 🙂
