EQ - 1/16/2011 Mystery
ER - 1/18/2011 apparently I sent just before the update on not accepting new clients or queries.

Reply was very helpful, indicating that she is closed to clients or queries but I should try someone else at her agency.

Rejection today:
Many thanks for thinking of me. However, as of January 1, 2011, I am no longer taking queries or new clients, as I am devoting my time to my current client list and working on some new opportunities within Andrea Hurst and Associates. I encourage you to browse our website, however, and see if perhaps one of my colleagues might be a good fit for you to query.

Ah, well . . .
