Jon, Sorry I missed the big day. Birthday's are special to Mrs.H and she has instilled in me a sense of how special they are. Hope it was a good one for you and wish you the best for many, many more. But you do need to get with it. Even I have an IPod thanks to our daughter, JJ, this last Christmas.
