Thanks so much for your lovely comment, Stell. About quitting smoking... don't worry, I'm not going to do that any time soon, so no peer pressure from me. ;)

It was nice to hear more about you. But you are way tough on yourself. I always find you are very solid and strong in how you feel without pushing it on others. I find you quite an admirable person.
