Thumbs Up

Congratulations on the great score.

It's actually a bit of a relief (for me) to know that someone out there is not "head over heels" for FA. Don't get me wrong, I love the book, but only after I understand a topic very well from other comprehensive sources.

Anywho, congrats again and thanks for posting.

CELEBRATE!!!!
