Hi Lori....so sweet of you to suggest...Thank you for your good intention to support. Unfortunately, this is not the short story i am looking for. Still your efforts are much appreciated. Cheers ...Reji

Reji ~~
You can "bump" your thread every month or so. This pushes your thread back to the top of the folder instead of languishing here on page 213 from seven months ago where fewer eyes will see it. Get back in the game! Bump!
You can do this by typing a new comment at the end of the thread, or even by typing the word "bump."
Good luck!
