Kathryn, I did have the date correct (31), but I had it written as the 31th (how is that read...thirty-wonth? LOL!) and not the 31st! Thanks for your sharp eyes...mine weren't so sharp when I put this post together at 2 AM!

Happy New Year to both of you, Wendy and Kathyrn! May 2010 be the year the brick walls come down!
