Okay, that's good. I was beginning to wonder if I'd offended you or something. :)

Nah - I'll tell if that ever happens. I just got a little buried trying to catch up at work. :mrgreen: Silly work.

Thanks Mike.

I wonder if she'd be open to writing a piece and her perspectives now...a few more years out.

Dana,

This woman has shared the fact that she has changed her behaviors. I am doubtful that she would revert back to old habits.

As for our students and daughters, are we passing down vital information so that they may nbe able to stand up to such horror?

I had one female student that simply would not wake up to the potential harm that might come her way. She had trouble bringing out the "lioness". After fruitless effort, I just had to resort to an old-fashioned slap in the face.
Well, that did it and despite my larger size and strength she was all over me like an very angry lioness. After that incident, I knew she would be OK if she stuck to her training.

All the best,

Mike D.
