Gosh, it's nice to be liked! Or, at least, to have one's blog postings liked so many times. Last week's look at Monica Reo's porcelain version of Claire Randall from the "Outlander" series netted a bunch of thumbs-up "likes" and a large flurry of curious e-mails from readers. They all adored Claire's classic good looks and her spot-on costuming. The recurring question in all the feedback was "Can we see more of Claire? And more from Monica Reo?"
