I've really enjoyed the contributions to this thread. I knew we were all
reasonable adults and could work our our differences. But, the "f*ck you"
was not very adult (nor the "illogical" thinking comment). So, lets put both
comments aside and try to come from the center of our being where progress
is made--and not waste more breath on who was the most (or least) right (or
wrong). AND, isn't Eva a dear for being so willing (and I think able) to
carry her end of the bargain?'
