    Ray,wonder why I don't go to the Dr?
    Ever wonder where your thoughts come from?

    Man exists to know and acknowledge and live by the Truth.
    His reward is eternal life.His punishment for failing to do
    so is death.

    Hmmm, mamabear, I know just what you mean. That is can bring you a few problems to solve. LOL.

    That's true, tee, sometimes a written mistake on those charts can cause very serious consequences,
    along with a very unhappy chain of events. I have seen that happen, too.
