Hey! you don't have to tell me about a heck of a year-
My father did die last month , many shelter ferrets are sick or have died-
my 13 year old dog got an aggressive cancer and had to be put done then 10
days later the building fire here , from which repairs still linger

I know what all that is.This topic is interesting and I wish with all the
rest I had MORE time to dig into the studies- I have to rely on Dr
Stevenson for my insight!
