Russ, Sorry I am so late posting for Mother's Day. I had a wedding to attend in New Jersey this past Mother's Day weekend.
Happy Mother's Day to you mother also.
Please and thank you always work.
Now I feel warm and fuzzy all over.
What about Father's Day coming up in June? Any advise from good old Dad? :
On being polite, an unauthorized Cnet forum primer # A . . . . . Remember when your mother taught you to always say: ''please'' and ''thank you''? Never has this strategy paid off more, than when you are trying to get helpful advice. Saying ''please'' and ''thank you'' (or its equivelent) is the key ingredient to a very successful cycle of communication. Without these, you might go wandering off willy nilly into the void, unaware that all had been successfully completed. Give the moderator a feedback too. He may be able to draw on that to help others such as you. This advice can actually help in all other situations in life too. You are not the ''Master''. ''They'' are not the ''slave''. Try it, it will make you feel all warm and fuzzy.
