Hi Shann again lol. I just read your ebay auction, they had better not pull the auction, they do things like that, they have no heart I tell you. I have been a seller on there for 8 years now, and they really dont care unless they are making plenty of dollars for themselves. Sorry for the whinge but I agree with you whole heartadly (SP). Cheers and good luck with the auction, if there is anything I can do to help please let me know. Debra.,
