    Michael,

    If anyone can squeeze an ounce of life out of the limited visual formatting P n Q has to offer, it's you and you do so here wonderfully; you have penned a perfect Christmas tree!
    Aside from that - and perhaps more importantly - the content hasn't suffered at all: a warming tale of the rise of a humble and lonely tree to a magnificent spot on Times Square, all sprinkled with some lovely rhyming throughout.

    Well done on this,

    Ben.

    ps I believe it's Times Square with an 's'

    And completely agree with what Ben said.
    Take care,

      Thank you, Sir. It did make the ole grey matter work hard; but I think worth it. It really is best viewed on a larger screen. On my smart phone, it looks odd!

      Thanks, again.

    Very beautiful, I love the layout and creativity it's stunning. I don't think I have ever seen such an appealing piece. It is both pleasing to read and view. I'm Speachless. Well done

    Thank you, Kasie. Despite this site's limitations, it's amazing what can be squeezed out of it. I am really looking forward to the changes that Janis is working on. :D
