Wow, awesome and kind words, they mean a lot. Each of you helped me too, and you can know that this new me is in part because of people like you and others here. I will never forget that. I hope this change for me has not hurt anyone either as I didn't really announce it, it just kind of happened in my mind that I needed to do this. People who chatted with me know my mind is kind of fragmented that way, but it's a good way now. I won't be gone forever, just need some time away. So thanks Traveler, CtHulhu, KMCINVA, concerned_husky, learning2luvme and Rich1967.
