Just let me say that I have wanted to strangle BHM tonight. AngryCry  I hit submit only to find that it had logged me out as I worked and I had to start all over again, with these **** links. *sigh* Angry


At any rate, take a close look and let me know what I've left out or if any of my links don't work.

Once I get feedback, I'll put in the request to make it a sticky.  Thanks!
