Wow Dawg! What a wonderful story. It has me smiling too! I always look for the little things to get enjoyment out of in the educational field, but it is so nice when you find out about the big things. I think sometimes we don't get to see just what a difference we can make! Way to go!

The last thing that made me smile big time was getting a replacement washing machine, from a front loader to a top loader...they were not going to do it, but I tried and tried and eventually they said they would do it YAY, big smiles all round

Your very welcome Chops

It all sounds wonderful

That's great news! I've been supporting this. If they want a list of idiotic events in the Olympics they can eliminate, they can call me.

Shoot. That will teach me to trust DH's reporting. I asked him if he was sure, oh yeah. Not so. Wrestling is on the short list, up against baseball-softball and squash. Wrestling is not a given yet.

Thanks for the update. I guess I'll keep hoping.
