Biker, Mags, Susan- thanks so much. When my heart warms to hear from all of you, it reminds me of how important it was to get such quick help in the early days when we had a mountain of questions. Magagoo, I suspect we'll always be in a tizzy before the PSA test - and will be keeping an eye on you around 9/12. Izzy - you got Ken through it and before you know it, you'll be having that first year under your belts, too!
Creed - yes, indeedy, a toast will be in order one of these days. We so enjoyed the Australian wines and I had the pleasure of sitting next to a vineyard owner on one trip over. What a treat that was, learning all about
them - and then drinking them! (I became a Toohey's fan, as well)
