  1. Thanks Patty!! I forgot about this – I will definitely be watching this.

  2. I’m glad I found it, as I hadn’t heard about it before. (Why isn’t SFS notifying those of us they have contacted before? Or maybe I’m just off their list now …?)

  3. If that’s the case, I’m not on their list too. 😉
