Jami, dear girl, you deserve a lifetime of chocolate sundaes for this post! You are truly a good person. Definitely epitomize one of my favorite sayings: "Better to light a candle than curse the darkness..."
The only suggestion I had formed was the one you just added: put your first name in your post or sig line. SO much nicer when I can put a name in a reply, so much so that sometimes I don't reply just because I can't call the poster by name!
Good job, Jami!!!
