    This is awesome! I wish I had enough time for something like it, but I could definitely include a simple lesson into my daily routine -- maybe one website a week. Thanks for sharing thins, Hank, I'm inspired!

    I love that she's also reaching out to people to design their sites. What a great way to help her community!
