I thank everyone for their posts to this & other boards. I've only come across one "jerk" who posted his offer to trace folks (He's a bailbondsman's skip tracer from Florida.) on each & every board at TheWeatherChannel's site. Amazingly, in the past week I've yet to receive any spam in my inbox or on my cell from having posted them all over. People never DO cease to surprise me! K! >;~}
