  1. Sorry for the error Chrissy. Trying to correct it. Thanks for the tip!
    @helena VERY funny!

  2. @chrissy: you’re right, spelling errors are an absolute no go. but what does “cut idea” mean?

  3. Cut idea, but, ladies, please, spell check does not equal proofreading. Should be a “plain” candle not a “plane” candle.
