William - hi from sunny Phoenix!  So you asked if one reads the question before you answer it. Might be kind of funny to not read it and simply give an answer. Kind of like Michael Jacobs and Roger D. Mucci did here (or rather do quite often)!  There used to be a thing called 'hijacked posts' and it was a riot to see where it would take off to.......enjoy your day!

Thanks, Roger D. Mucci -- your nothing posts are the absolute best.  I'll be back to read the many comments you will likely receive.   Let me know about that recipe Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert talked about after the movie yesterday.  By the way Anna Banana Kruchten keeps asking me about that Mary Kay order...that kitty makeup concealer is a hot item.  

Have a great Wednesday!
