    Billy, Jack and Cathi: Your comments are welcome, but ‘idiot” is not a kind word to use in your discussions. How about going to bed at night without having caused any grief to another human being?

    If being called an idiot on here offends anyone thats to bad, because if you care what someone you’ve never met and will never meet cares you have issues, only about 10% of the people in this world are worth more than a bag change, so odds are its a dolt throwing names out anyway
