    May not have been what you originally had in mind, but most people won't know or care...they'll like it as-is. You did a fine job of saving it.

    Looks very good to me. As the others have said, if you don't tell anybody we won't either.

    The US flag and its stars must have taken you quite a while, did it?
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Tony thanks yea if i could only keep my mouth shut but knowing me i point out every little mistake.
    The flag really wasn't to bad it took a while to get it that way ,but now that i did one the rest (if i do another)should go a lot faster.
