Joe, What ever you decide, just let me know if i am Canceling 2/14 event or not. I saw on the weather this morning, not that Ch 3 is correct all the time, but it looks like we are in for a big storm and it may even wipe out Thursday. YIPES! Have a super day! Take care and keep me in the loop, please. Thanks Terri *//*Good friends are like stars.
