Hi Helen - Thanks for the turkey. I haven't watched Gone With The Wind for ages but I'll have to do a rerun again soon. It is a wonderful movie!

Thanks for your caring words, Helen. The carnage breaks my heart; it is so senseless and will only add to the hard feelings and bitterness .
It's so good to have Spark friends to vent to. I just came from my Craft Class but we never spoke of the problem. This way we were all able to forget for a while.
Now for a cup of coffee and to return my sister's call.
