may i please suggest giving your personal information
like birthday and city of birth in a PM. i've read a lot about identity theft and it's just not a good idea to have that on an open board. open boards are a favorite place for criminals to gather information (i'm not talking about our fellow dishes but trolls with evil intentions).
for instance i read they have some info, then with that they get more (spokeo.com is a scary place, if you haven't been there, go and delete all your infomation) they call and since they know some personal information, you believe what they say...then they pump you, maybe saying they are your bank and have to verify something and next thing you know, you're life is ruined as you know it. it's a very BIG problem. recently a woman working at a college was arrested for stealing identities and stealing over 3 million in other peoples names
i'm just trying to be helpful, sorry for disrupting the flow of the thread
