    I had forgotten about this thread...

    Blue Candy, thanks for posting to this thread because it served to remind me that it was even here. There was a time when a long time passed before anyone responded so I thought no one was interested in my questions.

    I've enjoyed reading all of the responses. They definitely reveal the diversity among us which is a beautiful thing. Even though the questions may have appeared to be disjointed or awkward, they were intended to reflect our integrity, compassion, self-image, and sense of responsibility.

    Thank all of you that have responded and those who will in the future. I'll try to keep an eye on this thread from now on.

    Peace,
    Queenie :spinstar:
