Darling I love reading that poem, it brings a little tear to my eye each time I read it, which has been several times. I love you always Imzadi. This morning I was finally able to get my application to become a Microsoft partner was approved and I was able to redeem my TS2 certificate to get my copy of Office 2003, I look forward to finding out how becoming a Microsoft partner can increase the revenue stream for my business.
