    Didn’t know about Leverage- set it up to record, thanks!

    Looking forward to the finale of Amazing Race. I can’t get enough of that show, probably because of all the traveling we’ve done. And the finale is in Portland, I wouldn’t be surprised if they went right past our downtown apartment!

    Glad I could help about Leverage! 🙂 And yeah, I really love TAR!
