You SHOULD feel happy :)

Don't you hate those "no responses" though? They drive me crazy.

hi alicia, I know what you mean about the 'no responses' - you spend time wondering whether they even got the query, whether they read it and why they didn't respond... it's much better to focus on the one's that did respond...and yes, I'm feeling pretty happy about the results so far...

Happy holidays. And I hope you have a great new year. Liz
