Congrats on your reversal! While donations are always so appreciated ... if the items/boxes are not opened, wouldn't they take them back for a credit (where you ordered them?). Just a thought. All the best for continued colon health! Beatric (within 24 hours)

Hey Liam, Guess your post, of which I was informed, didn't meet certain criteria, since it "doesn't exist", and admin must have deleted it. Poor Agnoka, is missing out on the exitement. But I'm glad that you can keep (it) up. Cheers, Ed (within 2 days)
