Hello Paghunda! No, I am talking about us humans. Iron is a key element in our blood. My muse got carried away with the rust in peace bit, I'm still giggling ;))) Have a lovely day! ~Maureen

I once read: The body is like a machine - the more it works, the better it sounds. The more it rests, the more it rusts. Well-done Iron Lady. Wait, that was Margaret Thatcher ... shalom shalOM MO
