Well, even though this last response of yours was not what
I was hoping for, it is at least less subjective than just
plain discussion and realistic. I suppose I may be guilty
of not doing as much homework as the other person, and
maybe the easy way out will not be the easy way in the
long run. So I will stay with the other person's
suggestion. I just wanted a second opion, and you have
presented several valid points that I have not considered
previously.

Thank your for your time and advi *** t.
