I should learn to let it go, but it's a common misspelling (not that I EVER make any!!).

No problem David...I'm a lousy speller and keep a dictionary close, but missed when I was checking for spelling. Thanks for the correction! Have a great evening!!

Congratulations to the winners!

This must be Scott's year.  He is winning awards all over the place.  

Glad to see Jay Nielson (who is a member here) win.  He is a wonderful jeweler and really nice guy.
