I think where people actually live plays a BIG role in the advice we give. Climate for instance. I think i will not respond to anymore questions from Potwin f-ing Kansas!!! Dont know what the big deal is about location!

From what I understand, if the option of where they live is not filled in it will default to Potwin. By the way I agree just had to rib you, we have both done the same thing.
