Ohmigosh, I feel like the “bad mom”. All I know is I LOVE my Greene & Greene hall mirror ‘prototype-turned gift for Mom”; my custom made

Now that is so awesome…I love technology. Maybe next we can hear about the young Marc! Maybe a few embarrising pictures posted??????

Re: The FWW forum, Marc I’m with you. I haven’t visited “Knots” in many months, because you’re right; the Prospero forum SW sux big time. ‘seems reminiscent of, I dunno, Compuserve (I’m showing by age. ;))? Not only that, Prospero auto-censors posts based on sometimes baffling criteria. I used to write something and be baffled at why they replaced some words with ###.
