Hello and welcome.

There are 2 topics here that will get you grinning - bacon and dryer sheets. Do a search on those words on this site and enjoy the chuckles.

Welcome to the forum Lileee. Glad to have you. I can't add anything to what the previous posters mentioned. To me it's always been about LBYM. Hope things go well for you on your track toward retirement.
