    Hi, I'm still working my way thru all the different message threads, which I just love. If I want to contact someone outside the forum, can someone please tell me what the difference between email and PM (private) is? Thanx!

    edited b/c I open up all these tabs and read each one before I close it and then when replying I don't check to see what may have been written since I first opened the tab!

    Welcome, it took me a while to figure out the Forum. Some things I learned: The search button above is handy. The "message" button shows your PM box and you CAN log out if you need to, it is not too easy to see sometimes, and then other times............Oh and when someone posts the word "bump" it gets the message back to the top of the topic or the top of the "recent posts" button. So easy when you KNOW what it means, but it had me stumped for a bit.
    Be careful, you can waste away hours on here, like 100's of hours. It is a great place. HenZ

    Thanx HenZ! Any tips on navigation here are always helpful. I'm slowly working my thru all the threads. I'll have to try the "bump" - as I have a WTB posted. Any you're right - I've lost alot of sleep in the last couple of weeks - and then dream about all the possibilities!!!
