Welcome aboard, Lynne! Boy I'll say what you're doing is working! Is it EVER working! I'm betting you have just as much info for US, as we have for you, and that's the great thing about a community like this - we all gain support & knowledge from one another & make strong new friendships too.

Thank you for joining us - I look forward to getting better acquainted.

take care,

That's the kind of good sense we need more of in this world - teach by example! Now you & your daughter have both benefitted greatly from your sensible approach. Way to go, Lynne!
