    Thank you for putting my post up as a Feature Post - I think it is hilarious to open up the forum and find a bull staring.

    I can't emphasis enough the value of the Otis Foundation and what they offer in an opportunity for us all to have time out varing from 3 to 6 nights.  This week has been what I call my yukky medical appointments and the week before as time out was a good lead into this week.  Survived the yukky appointments, as we do!

    Have a great weekend and keep up the good work!  It is greatly appreciated by me!

    Take care from Christine xx
