    1st Congrats on the baby /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    2nd Unfortunately due to the Nachi computer virus I will not be able to go /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif. I had to pull a couple 16-20 hours shifts to get the hospital network back up and running and fell behind on my side business (lawns) and will not be able to make it. Hope you do well and everyone has fun....maybe next time.
