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

  • Helena Rubin-Chung

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

  • Chrissy Sherwood

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