  1. Pres - SOOOOO not offended. I was getting a giggle about you finding it funny. If you can't laugh at yourself, you're not a very interesting person... Alice
  2. ---- And I gotta tell you, that's an 'e' that I add on a consistent basis! But THANKS for pointing it out! My spelling and typing both leave a lot to be desired! Alice
