Re: [BKARTS] Nipping Presses



Dear Mr. Salik,
 
I'm not the Jan that sent the email regarding the press to the list.  In fact, I thought her comment was rude--instead of addressing you, she addressed the entire list.  I read your comments and enjoy their accuracy.  Regards, Janice Sapp or jansapp007@xxxxxxx or joyconte@xxxxxxxxx
