More Spice Girl moments

I’m sure you can see there’s a theme to this week’s blogging kicked off by Posh and Becks in my first posting.  Yes, it’s got to be a Spice Girls week.  Not sure how I’ll get through Ginger, Sporty, Baby and Scarey … although there’s a few folks around here that remind me of those…
