Thank you so much. I will try and get copied what I want....been busy working on our upcoming cruises, excursions, research, etc. Now that we're in a deep freeze with below zero temps, it will be a nice diversion...sounds like the cold will be with us for a bit.


JimAOK...I really love this holiday thread too...don't know how I missed it last year.
