    Great message, Effie !! Wish more people would get "outside the box" too ... LOL ... so many seem clones of the politically correct or steeped in dogma ... oh well, I don't need to start ranting ... smile ... wonderful write here. Been awhile since you've posted here at the Soup. Hope you return soon with more great writing!!
