I like you RICK, you are A.O.K. in my book because like myself, YOU HAVE NO CLUE on what is really going to happen! You just merely show up on this board trying to visably grab my goat because it is litterally so easy to do to difinitly think you will get under my SKIN like the great Student_grad always does.
